Caption

Dame Evelyn Stokes was described by her friend and colleague Malcolm McKinnon as ‘a fine scholar, committed public person and gentle but determined individual.’ Other colleagues at the Geography Department of the University of Waikato in Hamilton readily echo his sentiments. They tell us of a modest, hard-working woman who would have been the first to say any attempt at a biography written about her was a waste of time. Yet Dame Evelyn Stokes’ own resolve to record, research, collect and document our land, its people and the relationship between the two, is astounding.
