PAPUA — NEW GUINEA

A few New Zealanders have made careers in Papua, principally in the missions and the civil service. Dr Keith McKenzie (Southland) is medical superintendent of Gemo Island leprosarium, while Dr Peter Calvert and his wife are missionary doctors superintending lepers in the Gulf of Papua. In April 1964 Keith Tetley, a New Zealander who is a crocodile hunter and trader, won one of the six European seats in the Papua-New Guinea Legislative Council.
