Alister Matheson Articles - Historical Review

Bay of Plenty Journal of History

Alister Matheson was a noted Tauranga historian and the descendent of a Matua pioneer family (1926 – 2011), devoting his lifetime to to researching local history focusing on Otumoetai and Maketu. Educated at Otumoetai Primary School and King's College, he received the Tauranga Heritage Award in 1999 for his contributions to preserve the area's history. An author of books on Motiti Island and the Wairere Track, the book on the old Maori and missionary track across the Kaimai Range helped raise funds for the Elms Trust. He also wrote 41 articles for the Tauranga Historical Society's journal, including many on Maketu and the Maori history of the Western Bay of Plenty.
