Two separate government-sponsored publications entitled Dictionary of New Zealand Biography (DNZB) have recorded biographies of notable New Zealanders. The first DNZB was published in 1940 in two print volumes, and scanned with OCR technology in 2013 and made available as searchable PDFs. The second, unrelated DNZB was published between 1990 and 2000 in five print volumes, and put online as individual biographies in 2002.

For help on how to write biographies, see Wikipedia:WikiProject Biography.

1940 publication

Many of the 1940 biographies are not included in the current DNZB. As entries were only created for people who were well-known, entries would all meet notability criteria. A manual list of redlinks will be created over time; feel free to help.

Once a biography has been written, the person's entry (i.e. the blue link) should be moved to the list of existing 1940 articles. Please check links point to the correct person before moving them.

Current publication

The list below was created using the contents of the online biography, which contains over 3,000 biographies of famous New Zealanders. It does not include people who are alive. The initial number of entries before any pruning was 3,049 and 129 are remaining at this point in time. Not all people in the online version meet notability criteria, as a range of ordinary people were included to give an overview of what life was like at the time.

Once a biography has been written, the person's entry (i.e. the blue link) should be removed from the list. Please check links point to the correct person before removing.
