• Laurence Aberhart

Laurence Geoffrey Aberhart was born in Nelson in 1946, the oldest of four children. In his own words, he “fled Nelson” as soon as he could. He found the stratification of Nelson society odious, although he found a stimulating niche in the local arts community. A girlfriend’s family were vintners, and enthusiasm for their wine brought the Woollastons, as well as Marti Friedlander and Barry Brickell, into the same social circle in Nelson. He thus also met Peter McLeavey in late 1967 when visiting the Woollastons.
