Sir John Logan Campbell Papers


‘Father of Auckland’ John Logan Campbell was involved in the business, cultural and recreational development of Auckland since 1840.

Sir John Logan Campbell (1817-1912) is widely regarded as the major founder of the Auckland settlement, where he was one of the earliest merchants, active in establishing many commercial and cultural organisations, and perhaps the main benefactor to the Auckland region. The papers are owned by the Sir John Logan Campbell Residuary Estate, on deposit at the Museum.
