A Life of Adventures

John Hall-Jones reflects on how lucky he has been with parents, his wife and his mates who have enabled him to live his “life of adventures”. This is the story of his varsity days where, like his fellow medical students he “worked hard and played hard”. His participation in the Canterbury Museum expeditions to unexplored Fiordland, his trips to the Subantarctic Islands and the Antarctic.

A son of Southland historian, Fred Hall-Jones has now written a total of 34 historical books. A former ear, nose and throat surgeon he was awarded the OBE in 1994 for his services to medicine and for his books on New Zealand History. In 2007 he was made an Honary Doctor of Laws by the University of Otago.
