Sir Julius von Haast Collection


Papers, photographs, and drawings represent the most unique and complete record of the life and work of one of the most influential New Zealand scientists of the 19th century.

The correspondence provides an insight into the personal thoughts and scientific developments before they were published and the relationships in all their complexities showing the human aspects of science communication—a virtual science by correspondence.
