The Late Dr. H. T. Ferrar
The Late Dr. H. T. Ferrar.
It was with deep regret, which we know is shared by the students of this College, that we learned last month of the death of Dr. Ferrar. He first came to New Zealand as a geologist in Captain Scott's first expedition to Antarctica, where he spent two years. In 1905 he was appointed to the geological section of the Survey Department of Egypt. After ten years in Egypt, where he did much valuable work, Dr. Ferrar returned to New Zealand, and was a master at Christ's College when he enlisted in the New Zealand Expeditionary Force. On his discharge from the Expeditionary Force in 1919 he joined the staff of the New Zealand Geological Survey, and the splendid services he has rendered this country are well known.
This year the New Zealand University granted him a Doctorate in Science. His passing is a great loss to the Dominion, and we sincerely sympathise with his family, and his friends in this College.
