Richard Charles Woollons was born in Staines, Middlesex in 1942. He arrived in New Zealand in 1950 with his family aboard the P&O Rangitane on its maiden voyage via Panama. He was then cast into the near feral beach-bronzed tribe resident on Scarborough Hill, Sumner. He survived ... and later married the girl next door. Like many before him and since, Richard failed his first year at university, but recovered to develop a world-wide reputation in forestry science and growth modelling. After graduating in 1968 from the University of Canterbury, he found work as a hydrologist measuring streamflow on West Coast rivers in flood, but soon found long-term employment with NZ Forest Products (NZFP) and moved to Tokoroa.
