Biographical information

Biographical information

Contribute ›
  • "Voyce was born in Tasmania in 1899 but moved to New Zealand as a child with his family in 1907. He enrolled at Auckland’s Trinity Methodist Theological College in
    1923. Arthur married Beryl Haliday in the same month as his dedication – March 1926 – and the couple began what was to be over 30 years of missionary work on the island of Bougainville later that year." Moria White, Records of the Auckland Museum. p. 27.

    During the Second World War, Reverend Voyce served with the 3rd Division, New Zealand Chaplain's Department in the Pacific. His connection with Bougainville was helpful during this time, because he was able to share information about Bougainville with Americans that were based there. AWMM
