Walter Nash exhibition

New Zealand and the world as seen through the Political Papers of the Rt. Hon Sir Walter Nash G.C.M.G. C.H, P.C. (1882-1968). From food to fascism, from world travel to World Wars, Walter Nash kept everything. His papers provide an insight into all aspects of the world in which he lived.

The extent of the collection is vast – several thousand “bundles” of papers, photos, and other items. They are currently being listed for placement on Archway. This is expected to take several years. The Walter Nash online galleries contain digitised images of relevance. The album ‘Māori’ contains 118 digitised records with added description. They cover rangatira, events, correspondence, culture, war, and more, and includes te reo Māori album names and te reo Māori content in the documents themselves. There are also other albums of use such as ‘Women’, ‘Pacific’ etc.
