The story of Croatian settlement in New Zealand is presented in these pages as a mix of articles, biographies, documents and photographs. It is not a formal chronological history. I offer glimpses of the past through the lives of pioneer settlers, events of importance and archival material from public and private sources. This is by no means the full story; rather, my aim is to provide sufficient information for a better understanding of Croatian emigration to New Zealand. It is a historical missing link for all New Zealanders but will more particularly satisfy the curiosity of the numerous descendants of the pre-1960 pioneer families and those who have settled in New Zealand in more recent decades.
