Abstract

Robert and Emily Tutty were pioneering missionaries in Dovele (Solomon Islands), Bougainville, and the Admiralty Islands (New Guinea). He was the first Seventh-day Adventist missionary to New Guinea. In 1917, Tutty sailed on the first sailing of the Melanesia to the Solomon Islands and apart from the four-year interruption of World War II, the Tuttys spent the remainder of their 32 years of service as missionaries in the Pacific Islands. During this time Tutty published the history of the Dovele Mission.
