Marlborough Whalers at Campbell Island 1909-1916
This is a soft cover 76 page booklet with many historical black and white photos about the whalers at Campbell Island that came from the Marlborough Sounds. Names like Norton, Toms and Heberley, all names mentioned frequently in other publications about whaling in New Zealand.
Originally published in 1977 by Norm Judd and the Lands and Survey Department, this is a very specific episode of New Zealand history that occurred in a very remote part of New Zealand. Some alterations have been made as Norm has continued to research Campbell Island history since its first publication.
The book itself is based on the verbal recollections of Joe Timms, who Norm interviewed just before Joes death in 1977, just before the book itself was finished.
