Salient. An Organ of Student Opinion at Victoria College, Wellington, N.Z. Vol. 17, No. 6. April 22, 1953

Sir Thomas Hunter

Sir Thomas Hunter

We sense a deep loss on the passing of Sir Thomas Hunter. As a lecturer and sportsman, he was well known to an earlier generation. We knew him best as a brilliant administrator. It remains but to link the students with the Chancellor's tribute to these qualities.

His life-long interest in the College can be typified by his forfeiting representative honours to play for Victoria against Otago in 1905 and his cable of congratulations to the Rugby Club from Melbourne in 1952.

The present is poorer for his absence. The future will be enriched by his memory.

M. J. O'Brien, President V.U.C.S.A.
