Otaki Historical Journal and index launched


The 34th edition of the Otaki Historical Journal has been released, along with an index of all Journals since the first was published in 1978.

“The index is a huge resource for anyone interested in Otaki’s history,” says Journal editor Ian Carson. “It has nearly 400 pages of references to articles about Otaki’s people, places and events, and even references to photos and other images.”

In most cases there are several references, indicating a topic has appeared in several Journals. The index refers to the Journal number and the page. Anyone wanting to see the articles can either buy copies of past Journals from the historical society or request electronic copies of articles for a small fee.

The index has been compiled by a professional indexer in Wellington and will be updated by the end of February to include the 2012 Journal.

Meanwhile, the 80-page 2012 Journal features former Rangiatea Church deacon Hira Royal, along with articles about former Otaki headmaster Arthur Manz and former college deputy principal John Northern. There are researched articles about Brandon Villa, whaler James Cootes and former Otaki Mayor Murray Scott. There are also memories from Michael D’Ath, Mae Carson, Pat van der Velden and Rewi Roach, and obituaries for Paddy Rikihana, Georgie Naef, Peter Kim and Selly Hyde.


The 2012 Otaki Historical Journal is available from the Otaki Historical Society (jandmking@xtra.co.nz) for $28 (includes postage) or from selected Otaki stores for $25. The index is free and can be emailed to anyone interested by contacting Ian Carson at ian@idmedia.co.nz
