I have just put in the most wonderful day of my life; it is impossible to explain it all, or to tell how it feels, but I can at least recount my doings in more or less detail and let you judge for yourselves and guess at it. In the afternoon I went out in the car, took an American colonel aboard before I had gone a quarter of a mile and a British and a French soldier. The Place de la Concorde, which is the ceremonial center of the city, presented a scene indescribable.
We went back to the office, stopping every two seconds to shake hands with somebody or anybody, or to kiss his wife or sweetheart if she were along, and on arrival opened up a certain bottle which we have been treasuring nearly a month for just this occasion, and then F. We went there ostensibly for supper, but when everybody is standing on the tables cheering and singing and laughing and weeping, it isna€™t quite possible to serve meals, so for an hour or more we helped them out with what they were doing.
We finally got a taxi and the driver exacted a toll of 25 francs to take us to the hotel; and on arrival there driving off again and forgetting to collect. There are those, too, to whom the coming of peace means only a sudden keen realization of their losses which they have borne so bravely while the war has lasted. Except for home leave after the wara€™s end, Christmas 1918 and the first two months of 1919, he was in Paris until August the latter year, promoted to captain and supporting the Liquidation Commission created to resolve U.S.
By family tradition Edgar met the 20-year-old Marthe Marcelle Trocqueme in Paris on Armistice Day, amidst the citya€™s jubilant celebration of the wara€™s end. General Motors, initially and in 1919 still, was a conglomeration of not always highly compatible companies and chiefs, headed by the redoubtable William Durant whoa€™d formed GM in 1908 after creating Buick. He and his boyhood chum James Morris not only went to high school together, they were GM colleagues in New York in the 1920s, with Morris later reporting directly to Edgar there. Edgara€™s November 1952 GM curriculum vitae says that his initial assistant manager position was with its Samson Tractor Sales Division.
What it meant to be a junior executive there immediately after the World War is captured in the late Peter B.
This called for prodigious feats of organization and management, and GM found its leadership for that in two men. This was new, and very modern, and Edgar was one of the pioneers a€” though by personal inclination, he was not entirely a practitioner of his own doctrine.
1 This seems to dispose of the story of how Edgar met the French girl he would marry in 1919 as told by Thomas L.
2 a€?War Letters to The Eagle from Brooklynites Abroad,a€? Brooklyn Daily Eagle, December 8, 1918. 6 At the Mairie of the 11th Arrondissement, if anyone wishes to install a plaque commemorating the event, not far from the Cemetery PA?re Lachaise where Moliere, Chopin, Oscar Wilde, and many other notables rest.
7 See my BSI Archival History volume a€?Certain Rites, and Also Certain Dutiesa€? (2009), pp. 8 Eventually quite sophisticated in his command of French: see for example his January 30, 1939, letter to Christopher Morley in Irregular Memories of the a€™Thirties, p. 10 Like other Americans, Edgar could not have helped but notice in 1937 the a€?Worlda€™s Highest Standard of Livinga€? billboard, some 60,000 of which were put up by the National Association of Manufacturers, asserting additionally that a€?Therea€™s no way like the American way.a€? Today ita€™s known from Margaret Bourke-Whitea€™s photograph of it behind what appears to be a Depression breadline of Negroes, making a mockery of its message, but that seeming breadline was after flooding in Kentucky had driven people from their homes. 11 His 1920 passport application lists countries, cities and companies where he was expected to spend time in performance of his duties. 15 As a member of the Army & Navy Club myself, I wondered why they sought membership in it in 1938.
He and his boyhood chum James Morris not only went to highA  school together, they were GM colleagues in New York in the 1920s, with Morris later reporting directly to Edgar there. If your water is rust coloured please run your cold water taps only (suggested taps: bathtub or laundry tub) until water runs clear. Youth and senior wristbands, as well as vouchers for adult wristbands, will be on sale leading up to the festival at Canadian Tire Deep River, who is our proud wristband sponsor this year. Vida was appointed to the staff of the Zoology Department, University of Canterbury in 1958 and remained there until her retirement in 1996. Vida’s own research resulted in the compilation of important, pioneering information on the biology and chemistry of South Island lakes.
Vida was an enthusiastic member of SIL, the International Limnological Society, and rarely missed its triennial conferences. In addition to her consuming interest and involvement in teaching, research and administration at the University of Canterbury Vida was an active member of the United Tennis Club for many years. The well-known fisheries scientist, Bob McDowall died earlier this year after a short illness. Bob’s academic career started at Victoria University of Wellington (1958-62) and he studied for a PhD at Harvard University, USA (1965-68). He moved from Wellington to Christchurch in 1979 to run the expanding laboratory at Kyle Street (the present NIWA campus) and eventually had control of 60 freshwater science staff throughout NZ. Bob was an enormously productive scientist, publishing over 240 papers, 14 books and roughly 300 popular articles and reports.

Award: The Travel Award is a grant-in-aid to contribute towards to the costs of travel, accommodation and living expenses of the recipient up to a total of $2000. For her scientific knowledge, rigour and sustained contributions to freshwater sciences over many years. Carolyn has research interests focused on biological processes and population dynamics in lakes, plankton ecology and productivity, water quality and the conservation of aquatic ecosystems.
Carolyn has played a major role in science and technology at many levels within New Zealand. Carolyn Burns has only recently stepped back from her full-time role as Professor of Zoology at the University of Otago though she tells me that she is usually in the department seven days a week. For his sustained and distinguished contributions over 30 years to pollutant transport modeling, statistical analysis and design of water quality monitoring networks, and human health issues related to waterborne pathogens. For his outstanding contribution to the field of eco-hydraulics and his work in understanding the relationships between the distribution, abundance and response of fish populations to flow regime, hydrology, and physical habitat. In addition, the Society can nominate outstanding members for the New Zealand Science and Technology Medals, awarded by the Royal Society of New Zealand each year. Nominations for Medals are considered by the Awards Committee (currently comprising the President, Secretary-Treasurer, a SIL Trustee and two members elected at an AGM).
Honorary membership of the Society can be voted at a General Meeting of the Society, for those members who have performed significant service to the Society usually over a long period, on the recommendation of the Executive Committee as set out in the Society rules.
Member contributions for the newsletters are highly desired, and can be submitted to the Editor.
Membership is open to anyone with an interest in freshwater sciences, management and education in New Zealand and internationally. The Society currently has over 350 members coming from a wide range of backgrounds, including research institutes, regional and district councils, government environmental and conservation organisations, universities and consultancies. To become a member, please fill out the membership application form and post or email this form to the Society Secretary-Treasurer. The New Zealand Freshwater Sciences Society (NZFSS) aims to establish effective liaison between all persons interested in any aspect of fresh and brackish water research in New Zealand, and to encourage and promote these interests. Needless to say there was little work done, and when at the appointed hour the guns boomed all over the city and the sirens shrieked (no more with the message they formerly bore) it was the signal to turn loose. A group of the wounded men who were convalescing, or who began to convalesce when the news came, wheeled one of their number in a chair up and down the block, the occupant of the improvised chariot of victory playing a corneta€”what could it be but the a€?Marseillaisea€?? Five small boys piled on the running boards and we made progress somehow or other through the cheering crowds surging all around until we became hopelessly entangled and stopped in a position from which we could not have been extricated for an hour. In the course of our progress home we went through a dense crowd at the Place de la€™Opera and about a hundred people seized the taxi, which was in gear at full speed ahead, and dragged it backward about half a block, assaulting me in the window (the captains were on the floor) with salutes of both a manual and osculatory nature.
Now that the fighting is over, it comes to them that they are alone, and that one of the contributing causes of all the celebration and joyousness was the giving of a life which they loved. The armistice terms are crushinga€”they have taken the very bones out of the structure of the German nation and leave her at the mercy of the Alliesa€”a mercy which they do not deserve. There still remains much for the American Army to do in the way of occupation, readjustment and reconstruction.
It has almost been worth all the long months away from home to have been herea€”the very center of the universea€”on the greatest day the world has ever seen, and to have been part of it. His immediate superior at the time was the last Second Assistant Secretary of War during the war years, Edward Stettinius Sr., previously president of the Diamond Match Company. General Motors Export Company had been created three years later with a staff of three and only $10,000 in capital, located in New York as the fulcrum point for American commerce abroad. He applied for, and was accepted as, assistant manager of one of the GM Export Companya€™s sales divisions.
Not only a young man of brains, energy, and pleasing personality, Edgar had prewar business education and experience, and had been an army staff officer in high-visibility wartime assignments in Washington and Paris, training him in the skills needed to organize and manage tremendous undertakings.

Russiaa€™s Bolsheviks and Whites were fighting a vicious civil war, with Russian aristocrats and democrats resettling in Paris in reduced circumstances. In the late 1930s and a€™40s, when he and Christopher Morley worked some ten blocks apart in that age of communications, with telephones on their desk, they habitually conducted BSI business with each other by letter, as often as three times a day. On August 26, 1926, he was appointed assistant to the vice president for overseas operations. The letter was likely one to Edgara€™s parents at home, and made available by them to the newspaper. What would have pleased Edgar was the family of four, plus dog (his family had one at home), being shown not in a kitchen with the latest appliances, or in a living-room with a console radio and perhaps a piano, but in an automobile, clearly taking to the highways for pleasure. Perhaps it was only, as their work took them to Washington more often, to have a congenial place to stay that was convenient to the State Department and other government offices.
Residents in some areas of Town may experience a drop in water pressure and the water may be rusty or cloudy due to flushing of the distribution system.

Her father was a surgeon and vice chancellor of Victoria University of Wellington and her grandfather was the 13th premier of New Zealand and later chief justice.
She was then a Reader (Associate Professor) and had been Dean of Science and Deputy Chair of the university’s Academic Administration Committee. She was most interested in the nature of zooplankton communities, their changes over time, and their relationships to eutrophication, land use and hydro power developments. From left, John Stark, Richard Rowe, Lynley Pearce, John Hayes, Brian Timms, Vida, Malcolm Forster, Mike Winterbourn. She regularly gave talks on her New Zealand work and many of her research papers were published in the SIL proceedings. She also played badminton when younger and must have inherited her well developed “ball sense” from her mother who had been New Zealand amateur golf champion. Bob was the father of freshwater fish research and fisheries in New Zealand, and was a life member of the New Zealand Freshwater Sciences Society. His thesis on the taxonomy of whitebait and related genera was regarded as one of the best submitted at that time. He worked at institutes in Australia, South Africa, South America, USA and the Falkland Islands, and received many accolades and awards throughout his distinguished career, including being made a Fellow of the Royal Society of New Zealand and being awarded a James Cook Fellowship. Visitors will be expected to address the annual meeting of the NZFSS and to visit several New Zealand research institutions including universities.
In determining the value of the award the Committee shall take into account the fact that overseas scientists are often better able to receive financial assistance than New Zealanders. If funding is available, all material (including letters of support from referees) must be submitted electronically to the Secretary-Treasurer. The paper must be on research completed while they were a student as part of their MSc or PhD.
Many of the resources are linked to the Guidelines for Environmental Education in New Zealand Schools and encourage acting for the environment.
It aims to encourage students to take actions that support a sustainable lakes environment. It includes information on taking chemical samples and physical measurements and conducting biological surveys. It includes local information on rivers, mapping and explanation of terminology to do with rivers. Preference will be given to candidates less than 35 years of age, or who graduated in the previous 10 year period. Where appropriate, the successful candidate will also describe the work done during the trip at the next annual meeting of the Society.
All material (including letters of support from referees) must be submitted electronically (as PDF or Word documents). The scientific paper that launched her standing as a scientist of international renown was “The relationship between body size of filter-feeding Cladocera and the maximum size of particle ingested”, published in Limnology and Oceanography in 1968, and currently with around 500 citations. She has been President of the Royal Society’s Academy, a member of the Board of the NIWA, and a member of the Governance Boards of the Allan Wilson Centre for Molecular Ecology and Evolution, and the New Zealand Antarctic Institute.
Bob has maintained and promoted excellence in science over many years – from solution chemistry to catchment studies. Graham’s focus has been on applying mathematical modeling methods to water-related issues to improve understanding of key environmental processes and provide technical support for development and implementation of public policy. The newsletter is sent out electronically as a PDF file or as a hard copy by standard post. Members are entitled to attend the annual Society conference and associated workshops on topical issues, and to receive an annual newsletter detailing recent work at research institutions, members’ addresses and interests, and recent publications.
Even now, at 2 oa€™clock in the afternoon of the next day, the parades and crowds are still thronging the avenue. The clouds of four years and three months were blown away in ten minutes and the population simply went insanea€”and are still insane. According to the marriage announcement in the New York Times after he brought her home to start a new life together in America, her parents were M.
In the beginning, GM Exporta€™s energies were focused upon the sale of GM products through foreign distributors, but with the war over, its ambitions turned to establishing manufacturing operations abroad as well. In that job, and in other sales and junior executive posts at various European plants and at the home office, he became intimately acquainted with world trade problems. Samson Tractor, purchased in 1917 in order to compete with Ford in that market, was a signal failure, losing GM some $33,000,000 before being shut down for good in 1923.
Edgar had also, Morris tells us, learned to speak French during his twelve months in Paris, and had a French wife to keep him in practice. Spivak, a member of The Amateur Mendicant Society who had also been a Detroit lawyer and judge with both professional and marital connections to GM, was able to exploit for me its tightly-controlled archives for an account that must be one of the definitive Smith biographera€™s first stops.
Sloan, expand overseas, dazzle the public with its vision of the future at the 1939-40 New York Worlda€™s Fair, convert its vast industrial base to military production for Americaa€™s armed forces in World War II, and then convert it back again to consumer products after the end of that war, just as automobiles and modern highways began truly to transform American life. France and Britain were rubbing the new Weimar Republica€™s nose in Germanya€™s defeat, with Berlin thwarting their reparations demands by setting off the horrendous inflation that undermined Germanya€™s economy, facilitating the rise of both communism and fascism. Then on March 23, 1925, the family came home for good (now at 1355 East 16th Street, Brooklyn).
This was no gofer job; it carried responsibility, authority, and promise, with the last starting to be fulfilled before the year was out, when Edgar was appointed additionally a director of GM Export Company. In 1937, the thought was still a stretch; but by the time Edgar retired from GM in 1954, he saw it come true, complete with automatic transmissions and air-conditioning, on the four-lane highways GM had predicted at the 1939 Worlda€™s Fair. GMa€™s first assembly plant overseas was in 1923; by 1937 it was adding four new plants a year around the world, putting considerable stress upon the companya€™s organization and management ability. But there were equally congenial and convenient hotels nearby, so something more must have been involved. Come out and support local farmers and mingle in the buzzing atmosphere the market fosters. She played a significant role in establishing a new Masters course in Environmental Science at Canterbury and spent some years as a member of the South Canterbury Conservation Board.
She visited a vast number of South Island lakes, and had a happy knack of convincing people to take her to remote places.
Her most frequently cited paper is “Lakes in the mountain region of Canterbury, New Zealand” Verh.


Some years after her retirement she developed debilitating Parkinson’s disease and died in Christchurch on 21 July 2012 aged 82. Although he had retired from the National Institute of Water and Atmosphere (NIWA), he continued to work most days at NIWA’s Christchurch laboratory until shortly before his death in February. A turning point for Bob was in 1985 when he was invited to be a keynote speaker at the first international conference on diadromy, the movements of fish between fresh and saltwater environments (Boston, March 1986). He gained election to the New Zealand Conservation Authority for two years until ill-health forced his retirement last year.
Applications should be a single Word or pdf (preferred!) file, plus pdfs of letters of support.
Topics covered include the water cycle, water uses, impact of land use and water use on water quality and stream health. She is also a Fellow of the Royal Society of New Zealand and has been Academy President of the Royal Society of New Zealand. She has also chaired University of Otago review panels, including, for example, the Departments of Music and Theatre Studies, Philosophy, Anatomy, and Anthropology and Archaeology. At first this involved pollutant transport and transformation process in rivers, lakes and coasts, often concerning dissolved gasses (particularly dissolved oxygen) and, in later years, microbial pollutants. With others in NIWA, Ian has contributed greatly to our knowledge of habitat use by fish and benthic invertebrates, and has developed methods and computer programmes that allow this information to be used to assess the potential effects of flow changes.
There are currently three posters available (shown below), detailing New Zealand native freshwater fauna and flora.
The Society administers grants for conference travel and visits by overseas scientists through the SIL Trust Fund. One little midinette from the shops (of course nobody was working) wanted to see the guns fire, so H. We finally got a room upstairs and I actually ate a plate of soupa€”then supper was entirely forgotten in renewed celebrations and libations.
There will be other and more elaborate affairs, with bands and uniforms and orderly array, but nothing can ever compare with the spontaneity of yesterdaya€™s celebrations. We went into the war under the most propitious conditions; we came out of it when its effects are just beginning to be left. Edgar landed in New York in August 1919 just as the General Motors Export Company was poised to pursue these ambitions. This firsthand experience laid the groundwork for his later prestige as an authority on international trade. But the company did not hold it against Edgar, rightly seeing in him a GM man with a future. He was ambitious, and General Motors in 1919 was one of the most ambitious companies in the world.
Born in 1884 in Cleveland, Mooney had a technological Case Institute education, and worked for a number of major corporations before 1917 when he joined the Army as an artillery officer. Located at the Deep River Town Hall parking lot, the market is open bi-weekly on Saturdays from 10 am to 1 pm.
Vida was dux at Woodford House before going to Victoria University where she did her BSc and MSc in Zoology.
She also undertook long-term studies on lakes Grasmere and Pearson in the Cass area of inland Canterbury, and in the 1960s and 70s wrote timely reviews and book chapters on freshwater biology in New Zealand.
He also worked on describing all New Zealand’s freshwater fish and published his first book in 1978. Another book followed but so did a period of productive research on the biogeography and dispersal of fish which continued until the present. He served as co-editor on a number of scientific journals and refereed many papers, including 50 in the last year alone. While he leaves a huge gap in fisheries science, his written legacy is enormous; he also influenced many younger scientists who will be grateful they knew this remarkable man. At a wider university level her experience has been used in roles as a member of the Cycle 4 panels (university quality assessment) for Victoria University and Lincoln University, and she has chaired the Cycle 4 panel for the audit of the University of Waikato. Bob gained his BSc (Hons) in chemistry and his PhD in physical chemistry from the University of Canterbury (NZ) before working as a postdoctoral research associate at Wright State University, Ohio, where studies included gas solubility in liquids and related thermodynamic properties. After encouragement from central government agencies, especially the National Water and Soil Conservation Organisation, he moved into monitoring network design with an emphasis on statistical aspects. With over 30 years of experience in engineering hydrology and environmental flow requirements, and a very practical focus, Ian has provided advice to a wide variety of clients on the biological implications of flow regime alteration and environmental flow requirements, including in-stream habitat, water temperature, flushing flows, seasonal flow variations, and flow fluctuations below hydro-peaking stations.
As the word slowly came out at first, and then spread like wildfire, it seemed everybody in Paris was in any one particular spot you might pick out.
It was not, as in New York, on one street in one place, it was everywhere, in the most remote portions of the city. Of all the 2,000,000 men here only 30,000 have been killed in battlea€”not as many as the British lost at Cambrai alone, and not as many as one small province of France has lost.
This Stettinius went on to be a GM vice-president designing employee benefit plans, before moving on to U.S. By the following month, he was working at its 120 West 42nd Street head-quarters in Manhattan, and living in a detached house of his own at 39 Argyle Road, Brooklyn. His agenda was to take him also to London, Brussels, Liege, Madrid, Barcelona, Milan, Turin, Geneva, and Antwerp, and perhaps other places. Jim Mooney, to whom Edgara€™s photograph below was inscribed in 1928, would remain his boss and mentor until 1941. In the limited New Zealand freshwater fish fauna, Bob realised he had the opportunity to explore biogeographical patterns and processes in a way that would have been more difficult with a larger fauna. His widow, Ainslie, has provided an endowment fund that will bear Bob’s name, and will assist young freshwater scientists in furthering their careers. Her expertise as an academic reviewer has been used in institutions in New Zealand, Australia, Sweden and the Netherlands. He joined the water section of the Chemistry Division, DSIR, in 1975 and then moved to the Ministry of Works Water and Soil Science Centre in Hamilton, in 1980.
In that regard he was a key player in setting up the on-going National Rivers Water Quality Network. This experience has been used to formulate methods for assessing flow regime requirements in rivers by many regional councils in New Zealand. Meanwhile I had lost my hat in the restaurant and returned every few minutes or so to look for it with my head tied up in a handkerchief.
He had a sophisticated view of the world, and a reputation as a management expert reinforced in 1931 by his book Onward Industry! We are throwing back wristband prices to the 90s and cutting the cost by over half from the 2014 festival. She wrote two long papers on mites from her thesis and another on the rhabdocoel flatworm Mesostoma – all were published in the Proceedings of the Royal Society of New Zealand. Other doctoral students she supervised were Jim Robb (midges), Derek Staples (bullies), Paddy Ryan (eels), John Hayes (trout), John Stark (lake-weed fauna), Laorsri Sanoamung (rotifers), Janet Wilmshurst (lake palaeobiology) and Barbara Schakau (midges in lake sediment cores). These often featured vigorous tramps to lakes and streams, an oft remembered example being the epic 14 km Lake Blackwater expedition of 1979 in a howling norwester (see photo). He rapidly asserted himself as a staunch defender of oceanic dispersal as the dominant process for the distribution and colonisation of Southern Hemisphere freshwater fishes.
As anyone reading this synopsis of Carolyn’s scientific career will appreciate, she has made an extraordinary contribution to science in New Zealand and it is appropriate that her achievements are acknowledged by the Society through award of its highest honour of achievement and service. The Centre (renamed the Hamilton Science Centre) became one of the principal components of NIWA.
This kindled a strong interest in environmental statistical methods and, pleasingly, a proposal to continue this line of work was funded by the Foundation for Research, Science and Technology. French civilians and women carried French, American and British soldiers about on their shoulders, motor trucks draped with flags (and every automobile had at least two) rumbled past loaded down with the boys from one country or another, all wildly cheering and singing. Each entry was the occasion for a wild tumult, the diners (?) leaping to their feet and cheering and shouting.
Her French husband surnamed Trocqueme had been killed in the war, leaving her a young widow with a two-year-old son, Jacques Robert, born May 19, 1916. As war approached again, Stettinius would serve in various senior capacities in the federal government, including Lend-Lease Administrator, Under Secretary of State, and finally Secretary of State for some six months in 1945 at the end of Franklin Roosevelta€™s life, and the beginning of Harry Trumana€™s Presidency. The disintegration of empires ruined by the war resulted in new fragile democracies beset by enemies within and without.
Names were exchanged, and Marthe got off the Metro, walking on a€?fairy feet,a€™ to go home to tell her roommate of the handsome young American officer she was to meet for dinner a€” if he showed up.a€? Did Edgar, despite his letter to the Eagle? Brian Timms undertook a post-doctoral fellowship under her direction and used it to make extensive studies of the benthic invertebrate communities of South Island lakes.
Bob’s early work focused on dissolved oxygen and reaeration in rivers, colour and optical properties of waters, pesticide threats to aquatic ecosystems, effects of macrophytes on water chemistry, and catchment science.
Many wartime marriages do not survive, but Edgar and Marthe were married in Paris on March 20, 1919, honeymooning in Trouville and Deauville. During Edgara€™s four years in Europe, he witnessed vast economic and social dislocation, often with violence and bloodshed, and learned to detest and fear economic nationalism and the beggar-thy-neighbor policies that made a bad situation worse.
Vida also supervised Masters and BSc (Honours) students on a wide variety of topics, including mammals, water birds, fish and various aspects of the ecology of lakes and ponds.
She was a life member of the Freshwater Biological Association (UK) and was an honorary life member of our Society. Since the mid-1990s his research has mainly concerned land-water interactions, with special emphasis on dairy farming and the development of mitigation methods.

In 1968 she and the late Ann Chapman founded the New Zealand Limnological Society (now the NZ Freshwater Sciences Society) as a forum where freshwater workers could meet at an annual conference and contribute to a newsletter.
A major project was the Best Practice Catchments for Sustainable Dairying (2001-2011) that has been very influential in informing key groups about dairy impacts, possible mitigation measures and their likely effectiveness. He has now moved into a third major area, applying risk analysis methodology to water-related human health issues, which has now become a major focus, including new work in the USA. Recently, Bob has been studying gas transfer across the air-water interface again, but this time focusing on nitrous oxide emissions and the importance of denitrification in lowering nitrate concentrations. He enjoys both the mathematical approach to issues, and seeing their influence on the development of public policy. At NIWA, Bob is Programme Leader – Causes and Effects of Water Quality Degradation in the Freshwater & Estuaries National Science Centre. For example, his results have been used by the Ministries of Health and the Environment in the promulgation of new Drinking-water Standards and Microbiological Water Quality Guidelines for Marine and Freshwater Recreational Areas. His career has been characterised by a range of fundamental through to more applied activities in more recent times.
Graham is recognised internationally as a specialist in the philosophy and procedures of water quality management, and has been a tireless teacher and statistical advisor to generations of New Zealand water quality scientists. He has co-supervised postgraduate students, has written around 100 peer-reviewed papers, most of which are first-authored, and has written around 90 technical reports.
