Biographical / Historical
The Alexander Turnbull Library, part of the National Library of New Zealand, was named after Alexander Horsburgh Turnbull (1868-1918), a Wellington merchant who bequeathed his private library to the nation. His collection of books about New Zealand and the Pacific forms the core of the library's holdings, which have since been augmented by donations and purchases.
