Hawke's Bay Herald
Browse by date within this newspaper
The first issue of the Hawke's Bay Herald and Ahuriri Advocate was produced in Napier on 24 September 1857. The initial incentive for the paper was the call for provincial separation from Wellington, which occurred in 1858. The paper was first published as a weekly newspaper, became bi-weekly in 1861 and then daily in 1871. The 1931 Napier earthquake signalled the end of the paper as an independent entity. A Hastings paper, the Hawke's Bay Tribune, took over printing the Herald and the two papers merged in 1937 to form the Hawke's Bay Herald-Tribune.
