Documenting Central Otago’s History – Meet John McCraw, our unsung hero
The John McCraw Glacier in Antarctica is named after Dunedin born soil scientist and academic John Davidson McCraw (1925-2014). And yet, little is known about McCraw locally. After retiring from his position of emeritus professor at the University of Waikato, John devoted his time to researching the history of Central Otago.
He went on to publish about a dozen books on the history of the area and the wider Otago region and was acknowledged as the leading authority on the Alexandra district. Russell Garbutt sets the record straight by putting the life and works of John McCraw firmly in the spotlight.
