Charles Nalder Baeyertz (15 December 1866 – 5 June 1943) was a New Zealand teacher, journalist, editor, publisher and music critic. He was born on 15 December 1866 in Richmond, Victoria.[1]

He was the son of the famous evangelist Emilia Louise Baeyertz.

His capacity to memorize a page at a glance enabled him to display an apparently inexhaustible supply of knowledge and to acquire several languages. He claimed to have learnt Maori by memorizing a dictionary. His favourite party trick was to read a newspaper column then recite it backwards.
