James [Jim] Garcia was born in Richmond, Melbourne on 13 January 1875. He began his schooling at Yarra Park State School until his family immigrated to Thames in 1886 where he attended Te Aroha Primary and later Thames High School.
After finishing high school he began work in the offices of the Thames Star and Thames Advertiser papers, he later became an agent for these papers in Paeroa. Later in Thames Jim gained employment as an accountant and manager for Mr W. Forrest, timber merchant.
In about 1902 Jim shifted to Inglewood to work for Henry Brown and Company saw millers.
In 1907 Jim moved to Opunake and became manager of the Opunake branch of Brown’s Mill. During this time he also began work as a local correspondent for the Daily News and became involved with the distribution of the paper. While in Opunake he met Mary Willcox from Rahotu. They were married at the home of Paul Willcox on 30 September 1908.

In 1940 he wrote the book ‘Centennial History of Whangamomona’ for the Whangamomona Centennial Celebrations Committee.

Book by Dale Copeland containing over 100 images of assemblage artworks submitted for the International Collage Exchange programme (previously called 'The Baker's Dozen International Collage Exchange').
The International Collage Exchange is administered by Dale Copeland. Participants are encouraged to create 13 assemblage pieces roughly 20cm x 26cm in size. These are then sent to Dale where one from each artist will be offered for sale at an exhibition in Taranaki. Another one is chosen to be a part of a month-long exhibition on the Virtual TART site; it will then either be donated to a suitable art institution or will become part of the exchange. The remainder of the collages are shared out into parcels which are sent back to each contributing artist.
