Hocken legacy

In 2019 the University of Otago will celebrate its 150th anniversary. As this milestone approaches, the University of Otago Magazine is looking back over the years, drawing on photographs from the Hocken Collections.

In 1949 a series of promotional photographs were taken at the University for the Prime Minister’s Department, showing life on campus at that time.
