Davies, William C. (n.d.) Waipoua Kauri forest. Auckland museum call no. DU436.115 W14 Reserve (ID: 151050).
"The natural sciences in New Zealand have been blessed with some truly remarkable photographers, among whom William C. Davies (1873-1953) was the first to stand out. Appointed to the Cawthorn Institute, Nelson, in 1919 as curator and photographer, his first experiments in micro-photography were done while teaching at a Lower Hutt primary school in 1900. He did much to lift the technical aesthetic standard of photography and gained recognition overseas, becoming a fellow of the Royal Photography Society in 1932 and an Honorary Fellow in 1938, He was also in demand for service on various selection panels during the centennial celebrations in Wellington, 1940." - William Main & John B. Turner. New Zealand Photography from the 1840s. PhotoForum Inc., 1993, p. 40.
