The Duncan family were one of the first European families to settle in Whanganui and contributed extensively to the city and region. Isobel was married to Charles Ewing Mackay, a New Zealand lawyer, local politician, and Mayor of Whanganui from 1906 to 1913 and then again from 1915 until 1920.

Isobel was a highly active and forthright woman in the Whanganui community, and an avid gardener.

Join us for a free fashion floor talk hosted by Kaihāpai Taonga/Collections & Curatorial Lead, Trish Nugent-Lyne. Admission is free.
