Announcing a conference commemorating the centenary of the Felkins’ arrival in New Zealand.
16-18 March 2012. Havelock North, New Zealand. www.felkin.org

On 16-18 March 2012 the Felkin100 conference is being held to mark the centenary of the Felkins arrival in New Zealand. While the Felkins are most well known for their participation in the Golden Dawn, there are also many other facets of the Felkins lives and works which are worth acknowledging such as Dr Felkin’s missionary and exploratory work in Central Africa, his contributions to medicine, the Felkin extended family and the influence the Felkins had as a whole in New Zealand.

The Felkin100 conference is taking place over three days in Havelock North, New Zealand, the place that the Felkins made their home in New Zealand. The proceedings of the conference will be two days of lectures followed by tours around Havelock North visiting sites of interest that have connections with the Felkins or their immediate friends and supporters. Needless to say there will also be a conference dinner and ample time for socialising. Havelock North and the Hawkes Bay region in mid March are stunning and we could not ask for a better venue.

The Felkin 100 conference aims to appeal to independent and academic researchers from New Zealand and abroad, drawing together not only researchers of the Golden Dawn, but also many other aspects of the Felkins life. We believe that this conference will force a shift in the perception of Dr Felkin in particular and accord him his just place among the most astute members of the Order as well as highlight his contributions in other areas. The Felkin100 conference enjoys the support of many Havelock North residents and interest groups and we feel confident in stating that this event will be one not to be missed.

The conference is still some time away and the detailed programme will be announced at a later date but as we anticipate interest from overseas we wished to give timely notice of the event.
