Biographical information

Biographical information

Contribute ›
  • Member of the New Zealand Alpine Club:

    "L.K. Wilson died suddenly in January 1979. Educated at Nelson College, his studies to an LL.B degree at Victoria and Auckland University Colleges were interrupted by a short term as a pilot in the Royal Flying Corps towards the end of World War I. His vocation was law until in 1938 he left his practice as a Barrister in Wellington to manage the family farm in the King Country.

    Comparatively speaking, Lloyd came to the high hills late in life, not until his early thirties, but he had served a good apprenticeship of shooting and fishing in unusual places and was well accustomed to travelling over rough country. He was an excellent marksman.

    Lloyd was well read as could be expected from the son of such a distinguished mother. His intelligence was acute and inquiring. Whatever the subject, art, politics, farming or various kinds of sport, his view-point was always unusual and often startingly original.

    In affairs of the Alpine Club, Lloyd was deputy-chairman of the Wellington section from 1936 to 1938. He wrote articles on some of his expeditions for the Journals of 1934 and 1935 but was at his very best in the scholarly article which appeared in the 1942 Journal. Therein, his views on mountaineering in New Zealand were acutely and memorably conveyed."
