Dr Arthur George Harvey practised in the southern Taranaki town of Waverly and its backblocks from 1895 until his death in 1927 at the age of 61. He served the district beyond the call of duty and met difficulties with zeal and ingenuity - his inventiveness was legend. Waverly locals, including Robert Bremer, who is related to Dr Harvey's wife Tilly, recreate the doctor's extraordinary story.
