Edward Hare

(1847-1948). First colporteur leader in New Zealand. Probably the first to accept the Seventh-day Adventist faith in New Zealand, he was taught the SDA doctrines by S. N. Haskell, who stayed in his house while visiting Auckland in 1885. Soon after accepting the new faith, he began to distribute SDA publications in New Zealand, eventually organizing a number of colporteurs. He also invited S. N. Haskell to visit other members of his family and bring the SDA beliefs to them.
