Miss Margaret Orbell recently resigned from the position of editor of Te Ao Hou, which she had held for the past four years.
Miss Orbell's interest in traditional Maori literature has been reflected in the translations that have appeared in the magazine. She also continued Te Ao Hou's policy of encouraging the work of contemporary Maori short-story writers and poets. Her other special interest is in the field of Maori art, and many of the photographs of carvings and paintings which appeared in the magazine were her own work.
Margaret Orbell is now teaching Maori at the Correspondence School in Wellington.
He porporoaki poto noa tenei ki te Etita o Te Ao Hou.
