Description

Walter Boa Brockie (1897-1972) was the curator of the Otari Open-air Native Plant Museum from 1947 to 1962, following Leonard Cockayne (1926-1934). He had a special interest in alpine plants, having worked with James McPherson on the development of the Christchurch Botanic Gardens' rock garden in the late 1930s. His booklet New Zealand Alpines in Field and Garden (1945) reflected this expertise.
