Biographical information received from Anne Stewart Ball, 2015, with updates from staff:
Wilma's paternal grandfather, William Wilkinson, founded the Thames Star. Her father William ‘Wilkie’ Wilkinson founded the ‘New Zealand yachtsman’. Wilma was born and raised in Auckland. Her baby book and the birth registry reveal that her middle name should have been ‘Marriott’, after her mother's French cousin who was her godmother. Her childhood photo album shows holiday photos (Waiheke, Tauranga, etc.) including her father, William Albert Wilkinson (1872-1954), mother, Hylda Wilkinson, nee MacKenzie, (1888-1975) and brother Brian Sydney Wilkinson (1917-2001), sometimes referred to as ‘Bo’. In her teenage years Wilma wrote poetry (for examples, refer series items 1.9 and 1.10). Later poems were printed in several tramping club magazines. The poetry interest, and one year at Auckland University doing a journalism course may have been what led to her renting a cottage off R.A.K. and Dorothea Mason on the North Shore.
After giving up on the idea of being a journalist she started work at Auckland Public Library. There is also a 21-page self-analysis which she wrote at the age of 21. As a young child (about 4 years), Wilma was taught to knit on wooden skewers by her MacKenzie grandmother Edith Helen (nee Best). She continued to knit to the end of her life. During her travels she would use knitting as an ice-breaker to open conversations with other travellers, or end unwanted attention. She circulated her travel letters widely among friends, making several sets, usually an original hand-written copy and several typed/carbon copies. Most were eventually returned to her home in Wellington after circulation around a supplied list of recipients with addresses.
She also travelled throughout New Zealand, and was a lifetime member of the Auckland Tramping Club. She helped index the history of the Alpine Sports Club for two of her close friends and the authors of the book, Stan Forbes and Ian McNab.
Wilma married Henry Brackenbury Latter (1908-1990) in 1941. They divorced in 1960 but later remarried in the 1970s.
Wilma's first MacKenzie relative to come to New Zealand was William (Jnr) (1806-1852), her grandfather's brother. He was an apothecary, educated at St Andrews, Scotland. He is reported to have emigrated to NZ in the 1840s at the suggestion of John Logan Campbell and opened the first chemist shop in Auckland in Shortland Street. He died suddenly, leaving an estate of several properties round Auckland. Income from this estate was sent back to his father William (Snr) in Scotland. When William (Snr) died two years later in 1854, William (Jnr)'s older brother Joseph (Snr) (1803-1878) inherited the estate. On his death, Wilma's maternal grandfather Joseph (Jnr) (d.1894) inherited. Joseph (Jnr) was an accomplished artist. He was a founder member and the first secretary of the Huddersfield Art Society. In 1893 he came out from Scotland to wind up the estate, but was drowned in the wreck of the S.S. Wairarapa. His only son William (the 3rd, 1876-1913, known as Mack) had been at sea since the age of sixteen. When he inherited, he found most of the family's assets were in New Zealand so he moved his mother and younger sister Hylda (Wilma's mother) to Auckland.
In 1903 Mack married Jane Eleanor Boxall, a teacher on Waiheke Island and originally from Thames. Hylda later trained as a nurse in Waihi and Thames, and Mack and Wilkie would have known each other in Auckland yachting circles. William A. Wilkinson became the shipping correspondent for the Auckland Star in 1919 covering yachting under the byline 'Speedwell'. These connections may have led to Hylda and Wilkie's marriage which occurred on 27 November 1911.
In 1999 Wilma donated one of Joseph's paintings to the Huddersfield Art Society as they did not have any of his works in their collection. Edith Helen gave each of her grandchildren a signed watercolour by their grandfather as a wedding present. The painting ‘New Haven, Edinburgh’ which Wilma gave to H.A.S. was a wedding present. (See series 4 photographs: 4.12.7 & 4.12.8)
“Wilma also went into journalism reporting for a short time on racing but then went on to become a Librarian. Later years saw her in Country Library Service and told by National Library that she arranged for this service to Tairua. She spent many holidays etc at Whangamata with my parents.”
Notes: Wilma’s mothers name is occasionally spelled Hilda, but most official documents have her as Hylda. Wilma has Marriott as her middle name on her birth certificate, and in her baby book, but it is often written as Marryatt.

Processing notes: While some rearrangement has been done by the librarian, the original order of the material has been preserved as much as possible, i.e. as arranged by Wilma Latter, especially relating to Series 7 – the overseas circular letter sequences.

Transfers of material have been made in two instances:

1) A box of colour slides featuring tramping in the South Island was transferred internally to the Sir George Grey Special Collections Photographic Collection (Acc1271) to allow for better preservation conditions to be upheld. A printed copy of the digitised slides has been catalogued as series 4.1

2) Alpine Sports Club (ASC) records relating to member Wilma ‘Spider’ Latter transferred to Auckland War Memorial Museum as they hold the full records of the club. This was done with the full knowledge and approval of the donor

Series 7 Overseas circular letter sequences ________________________________________ This series consists of overseas travel correspondence in the form of circular letters written by Wilma Latter recording her travels for friends and family. It includes several early overland trips to Britain through India and the Middle East, tours from London to eastern European countries, later trips to Australia, and covers the period from 1954 to 1992. The majority of this correspondence are multiple copies of ‘circular letters’, i.e. Spider would write letters on her travels and have them circulated to friends and family. She made several sets, usually original hand-written or typescripts with additional typed/carbon copies. Most were eventually returned to her home in Wellington after circulation around a supplied list of recipients with addresses. Most of the letters were paginated by Wilma Latter, so the description includes the number of ‘pages’ written on, not the number of sheets of paper. Any letters noted as ‘missing’ were missing at the time of donation. There were separate Auckland (Ak) and Wellington (Wgtn) circular letter series which generally include the same information, but may have subtle differences. The original series order has been preserved as far as possible. Generally originals are fragile with some being very fragile – use alternatives if available.
