David Grant’s editorial draws attention to PHANZA’s advocacy role in some areas likely to affect its members. Articles explore these areas and what PHANZA (and others) have been doing: Gavin McLean writes about the move to restructure New Zealand’s National Archives and about heritage and historians; Kerry Taylor outlines FoRST’s Output 13; Graham Butterworth and Bronwyn Dalley lobby for the retention of census material; and Helen Walter argues for the role of historians and historical research in settling Treaty of Waitangi claims.
Anne Else is the subject of ‘Biography of a Public Historian’. Tony Nightingale provides helpful information for historians working on contract; Bronwyn Labrum reviews the exhibition celebrating the 75th anniversary of the Alexander Turnbull Library; and Bronwyn Dalley looks at some of the subscription lists available through H-NET.
