Stead Hone Tuwhare ----- 1 Keri Hulme was born in Christchurch, NZ in 1947 of Scottish & Maori heritage. She lives in the settlement of Okarito on NZ's wild West Coast. Okarito used to have 4,500 gold miners and 25 pubs but is now only tiny. It is famous for an old store, which is the oldest building on the West Coast, the White Heron colony and Keri Hulme. Keri lists her interests as beach walking, whitebaiting (a traditional form of fishing in NZ), reading, eating and drinking whisky. If you really are interested in her writing you could drop her a line at Okarito, Private Bag, Hokitika, NZ.

Well, that's not quite true - there were many instances of reattaching noses and ears and such in Italy and India and a few other places. But the first world war resulted in plenty of cases to work on and by the time the second world war rolled around, a phenomenon called Airman's Burn where pilots who disobeyed orders and removed their goggles and gloves due to the heat in their cockpits suffered extensive burns to their faces and hands when shot down meant that skin grafting really took off. "In the time between the two World Wars there were 4 full time reconstructive surgeons - three were New Zealanders (working in Britain of course). Sir Harold Gillies was the first one and pioneered many of the techniques. Rainsford Mowlem was another but the most famous was Sir Archibald McIndoe who started the Guinea Pig club of his patients which some of you may have heard aboout. By the time of the WWII more pilots were surviving crashes due to better constructed planes and penicillan ensured a greater survival rate so there were more men for him to work on. Gillies tended to work of the canon fodder of the front in WWI. The Guinea Pig club still meets every year. MacIndoe was not only at the forefront of "holistic" medicine in that he treated his patients' minds and their trauma as well as their bodies - he wouldn't let them go back into service until he was sure their minds had recovered also, but he was the one to make the connection between the recovery rate of burns victims who had fallen into the sea and the concept of saline baths for burns victims. Prior to that an oil solution was used on their burns." ------ 2 Ernest Rutherford After receiving a master's from Canterbury College, Chistchurch, Rutherford went to Cambridge in 1885 to work under Sir JJ Thomson at Cavendish Laboratory. He took up a physics professorship at McGill, Montreal, in 1898, worked with Soddy and in 1902-3 identified radioactive half-life, moved to Victoria University of Manchester in 1907 and was awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry in 1908 for his work on radioactivity. He worked with Geiger in 1908 and in 1909 used alpha particle bombardment of thin foils to lead to his 1911 description of atomic structure. He was knighted in 1914, then succeeded Thomson at the Cavendish Laboratory in 1919. He was elevated to the peerage in 1931. His other awards included an Order of Merit in 1921, the Copley Medal of the Royal Society in 1922, and he was President of the Royal Society from 1925 until 1930. In 1931 he was created Baron Rutherford of Nelson. -- Tony Williams adds: In 1897-98 he discovered two components of radioactivity, alpha and beta rays. In 1898 he moved to McGill University, Montreal, as a professor and did much work in partnership with Frederick Soddy into radioactivity and transmutation. In 1903 became professor of physics in the University of Manchester (uk). Many of the brightest minds in physics at that time visited him and some even stayed to work for him, in the gloomy basements of the university. Much basic work in particles and collisions and nucleii was done during this period by Rutherford and his team. In 1918 Rutherford took over as Cavendish Professor at Cambridge (uk), a post he 'inherited' from his old friend and mentor J.J. Thompson. The team of researchers that ensued at the Cavendish over the next ten years under Rutherford did much of the fundamental work in atomic physics. Various photographs from that time show a casual roll-call of names of people who were to become the giants in this field, all eager to visit and work with Rutherford. One very interesting photograph shows Rutherford, a big burly man with a fag hanging out of one side of his mouth, standing in Vivian Bowden's laboratory. There is an illuminated sign saying "Talk SOFTLY Please" just above Rutherford's head. Apparently Bowden had this sign built specially, because the ionisation apparatus was microphonic, and Rutherford's loud booming voice could easily ruin experiments. -- As for the existence of the Victoria University of Manchester, Richard Kingston offered: "Strangely enough, I possess a book called 'Rutherford at Manchester'. It's copyright to the Victoria University of Manchester, 1962, so I guess it must exist :-) This comes from the preface "Ernest Rutherford, later Baron Rutherford of Nelson, the acknowledged founder of nuclear science, was Langworthy Professor of Physics at the Victoria University of Manchester from 1907 to 1919" ------ 3 Charles Upham Howard Edwards wrote: "Captain Charles Upham (retired), New Zealand's most decorated soldier and veteran of World War Two, died last Tuesday and was buried with full military honours after a service in Christchurch cathedral on Friday. Upham was awarded two Victoria crosses for exceptional bravery during WWII. "A modest hero. Upham never saw himself as anything other than a New Zealander doing his duty. He refused to accept any land offered to returning servicemen after the war, and also turned down a knighthood. He spent the remainder of his years on his North Canterbury farm and avoided the spotlight of fame which the media oocasionally tried to shine upon him." ---- Lyndon Watson wrote: "I took my father, who served with Charlie Upham in the 20th, to the funeral on Friday, and I found the subject too close to many emotions to write about for all the world to read. "Upham's battalion, the 20th, was, in my biased opinion, the most distinguished of all New Zealand regiments in the Second World War. Together with the other battalions that comprised the 4th Brigade (the 18th Auckland, 19th Wellington and 20th South Island battalions), it was made up of the first and keenest men who volunteered in 1939, and it bore the brunt of the actions in Crete (where Upham won his first V.C. for attacking and destroying machine-gun posts in face of their fire), at Belhamed, and at Ruweisat Ridge which was, like Stalingrad in the same year, one of the crucial battles of the war (and where Upham won his second V.C. for running in the open at advancing tanks and attacking them with hand-grenades). At each of those battles the 20th was nearly destroyed, and it was rebuilt each time around the survivors who somehow kept its extraordinary spirit alive. Its third Victoria Cross was won by Sergeant Jack Hinton, who died in June 97. "When Upham returned from the war, the people of Canterbury raised 10,000 pounds by public donation to buy him a farm. That was enough to buy a very good farm, but Upham declined and had the money put into an educational trust. He eventually bought a houseless block with a rehab. loan and turned it into a farm with his own hard work." ----- Charles Upham died in November 1994. ------ 4 Bernard Freyberg James Lawry wrote: Started as a Morrinsville dentist, distinguished himself at Gallipoli, 3 DSOs and a VC (for personal valour in the battle for Beaucourt). Major-General in WWII commanding 2nd NZ Epeditionary force. As Lieut. General Sir Bernard Freyberg he was Governor-General of NZ for 6 years. =========================================================================== PART D ------------------------------ Subject: D1 THE CONTRIBUTORS I don't know why I didn't think of it earlier, but this list is a classic spam attractor.

The RFDs and CFVs were not well publicised. They didn't appear in any of the groups that I read regularly at the time and the first I knew of the proposal was when the results were posted, for some reason more widely than the RFDs and CFVs [not really, Lyndon :-)]. I did, however, post the first day the group was enabled here, and haven't stopped since.... But there are one or two semi-regulars among the yes votes [....] and others who were once frequent posters but have since dropped away [....] and one or two prominent personalities in other newsgroups who supported the vote but haven't posted much or at all here. Alan Murray deserves to be remembered as the first to post a regular newspaper clippings service, a role since assumed by Brian Harmer. It's interesting to remember that the group was created by expat New Zealanders and in its earliest days carried mainly expats' posts. In the first year, whole weekends used to go by without a single post. But one of the nice things then was the level of participation by friendly foreigners. There are still a few (g'day Chuck, Don, Amos if you're still there...), but not enough of them and too many of the weirdly hostile (a raspberry to Henry, Rocket Jim...) and the cross-posting nits. ------------------------------ Subject: D2.2 CFV List of Voters List of voters who voted on the CFV to create the newsgroup Posted by Graeme Williams (gcwillia%daisy.waterloo.edu) VOTES AGAINST (27) ado % elsie.nci.nih.gov (Arthur David Olson) asb % wren.cs.rmit.OZ.AU (Anthony Scott Botham) basho!john % cis.ohio-state.edu (John Lacey) becker % cs.rochester.edu (Tim Becker) bob % omni.com (Bob Weissman) cdr % brahms.AMD.COM (Carl Rigney) charleen % ads.com (Charleen Bunjiovianna Stoner) chip % chinacat.unicom.com (Chip Rosenthal) david % elroy.Jpl.Nasa.Gov (David Robinson) dziuk % hsi86.hsi.com (Ronald V.
