    Urban Legend - Sir Dove Myer Robinson
    Urban Legend - Sir Dove Myer Robinson
    Who was Mayor Robbie? And why is he still relevant today? From a working class Jewish boy in Sheffield to long serving Mayor of Auckland (1959 - 1980), Sir Dove - Myer Robinson's life followed an unusual path. A slight, bespectacled man whose tiny stature was offset by a booming voice and massive ego, he was a natural political campaigner. Associated with a host of local and national causes, he became Auckland's most recognisable spokesperson. He joined political causes and challenged convention. He fought for our current waste water treatment process, against French nuclear testing, and an integrated Auckland transport system and city. Though his political career was outstanding and memorable, his personal life was a hot bed of gossip. Four wives, one 20 years his junior, and a very public divorce during one of his terms meant he was never far from the headlines. In this book we look at both his personal life and his outstanding political career, which affected not only the future of Auckland, but the future of New Zealand.
