H. D. Skinner and the Chatham Islands expedition, 1924

Anthropologist H. D. Skinner (third from left) is shown here in 1924 with fellow research expedition members before leaving Lyttelton on the Ngahere for the Chatham Islands. Skinner's studies of Moriori material culture led him to believe they were an east Polynesian people, very closely related to Māori. The scientists in this picture are (left to right) geologist Robin Sutcliff Allan, palaeontologist John Marwick, Skinner, entomologist W. G. Howes, marine biologist Maxwell Young and botanist E. F. Northcroft.
