The Degree

The Degree

Victoria University has chosen to honour Rewi Alley by bestowing on him a Doctor of Literature by way of recognising the contribution he has made to literature. He has been described by one critic as "a good poet, a brilliant translator, and a workman-like author"

In 1948 Rewi Alley turned down a knighthood from the British Government. That he has actually accepted a Lit. D. from this University must not pass unnoticed.
