A black and white photograph of the monument bust of James Calvert (1813-1892), "of Fiji".
The Reverend James Calvert was a missionary in Fiji. Calvert and his wife spent seventeen years there, between 1838 and 1855. As a result of their activity, the most powerful chief of Fiji at the time, Thakombau (or Cakobau), converted to Methodism. Later, Calvert spent eight years in the Diamond Fields in South Africa, ministering to miners and their families.
