Historical Notes: Olaf Frederick Nelson was the son of a Swedish sailor and a Samoan mother. By the 1920s he was a wealthy merchant trader living in Apia. As a result of Samoan dissatisfaction with the New Zealand administration of their country, Nelson emerged as a Samoan nationalist leader, especially associated with the Mau movement. This resulted in him being exiled from Samoa to New Zealand from 1928 to 1933.
