Mary's research will culminate in a biography of James Tannock Mackelvie (1824 - 1885), whose archive rests in the Sir George Grey Special Collections. The archive comprises all the documentation sent to Auckland after Mackelvie's death and includes both business and personal files.
This material allows a focus on his own life, both in England, Europe and New Zealand, his relationship with the burgeoning city of Auckland, and the collections he gifted and bequeathed to the people of Auckland.
