NOTES
* The Greymouth Evening Star was the second newspaper to be established in Greymouth, although it was Greymouth’s first daily newspaper. Two important figures in the early life of the Star were James Snyder Browne and his son Montagu Lindsay Browne who is named as the sole proprietor of the newspaper in its issue of 1 June 1869. James Snyder Browne was one of the founders of Hokitika’s Evening Star and was later involved with a number of other newspapers, including being editor of the New Zealand Herald.
* There is a scrapbook consisting largely of newspaper cuttings of articles written by James Browne (1821-1885) under the nom de plume Snyder... Reminiscences in the life of a colonial journalist, My sentiments and other contributions (a colour portrait of James is mounted at the back of the scrapbook - go to link)
Under the pseudonym of "Snyder", Browne for many years contributed lively, facile commentaries on colonial life which were syndicated throughout New Zealand. About 1870 "Snyder" published some thirty five articles entitled, "Reminiscences in the life of a colonial journalist" based on some lectures given at the Mechanics Institute in Auckland, which cover his memory of personalities and events in Tasmania and the Victorian gold-fields, Otago, the West Coast and other parts of New Zealand. These cuttings are mounted inside the scrapbook.
... James "Snyder" Browne arrived at the Otago gold-fields in 1861 by way of Brazil, Tasmania and the Victorian gold-fields. On the gold-fields he took up journalism where his acid pen made him a favourite correspondent and columnist throughout New Zealand, and he edited newspapers on the West Coast and for a brief time at Whakamarina in Marlborough. Browne later edited the 'New Zealand Herald' in Auckland followed by a term as proprietor of the 'Coromandel Mail'. From about 1873 until 1878 Browne was editor of the 'Poverty Bay Standard'. When he retired from active journalism he set up business in Gisborne as an auctioneer and commission agent. He died in Gisborne on 7 Nov 1885
