Don Briscoe and his brother Charlie kept bees in the BOP back into the 1950s.

Don was the President of the NBA for 2 years starting in 1968, after having been on the Exec for some years before that.

He had been on the original committee to try to eliminate tutu problems in 1969. He also did a lot for BOP beekeepers in promoting a 'map system' that reduced spray poisonings in the orchards in the 1980s.

I'm very sorry to have not proof read this! Don Barrow is the beekeeper who has recently died. Doug Briscoe is another person, formerly with MAF, who I'm still trying to locate.
