In this comprehensive and probing story of the life of Sir Harold Beauchamp, Kevin Boon traces the path of a remarkable self-made man who rose from humble beginnings to become a leading figure in the development of banking, commerce and the arts in New Zealand. From his origins as an immigrant to an undeveloped colony Beauchamp's life runs parallel to that of an emerging nation during a defining period in New Zealand's history. His reputation as energetic, reliable and trustworthy is affirmed by an astonishing volume and variety of commercial and administrative interests and responsibilities over a long career marked by immense character and resourcefulness. Father to the hugely successful author Katherine Mansfield, his influence on her writing and vital role in her widespread literary success is significant and lasting, as is his legacy as one of the most prominent nation-builders of his time.
