Gloria Stanford, as she is now known, was one of many New Zealand war brides who fell in love with American servicemen during World War II. She married in 1944, and was supposed to follow her new husband back to the States. Instead she got homesick, abandoned the ship in the middle of the night, and made headlines around New Zealand as the bride who wouldn't leave New Zealand. Her granddaughters Amy and Catherine Waller have written a play about their grandmother's story called Gloria. www.tapac.org.nz.

Lindsay Kennett has always had a head for fashion. Even as a boy from a farm in Glenorchy in the 1930s, Kennett would watch the tourists in Queenstown and sketch their clothing. That boy would grow up to be New Zealand's leading milliner. His hats have been worn by royalty, and the who's who of New Zealand society. Some of his hats are on display now, not far from his childhood home at the Lakes District Museum in Arrowtown.
