Vale Elizabeth Wood-Ellem (1930-2012)

An obituary to the Late Dr Elizabeth Wood-Ellem has just been published in The Age. The Pacific Institute would like to acknowledge ‘Bessie’ Wood-Ellem’s life-long association with Tonga and her remarkable knowledge of the Tongan royal family (read her PhD or subsequent monograph, Queen Salote of Tonga: The Story of an Era 1900-1965). Radio National’s Pacific Beat broadcast a tribute to the Late Dr Wood-Ellem on 11 September 2012 that featured an interview with Assoc. Prof. Helen Lee. [‘Bessie’ Wood-Ellem wrote an obituary to the Late King George Tupou V for Outrigger earlier this year].
