Sir Peter Buck (Te Rangi Hīroa; 1877-1951, Ngāti Mutunga iwi), completed his medical training at the University of Otago in 1904. After a year as a house surgeon at Dunedin Hospital, he was appointed as Medical Officer to the Māori under Māui Pōmare. Buck was elected to Parliament in 1909; he served with distinction as a medical officer to the Māori contingent in WWI; and in 1921, he became Director of the Maori Hygiene Division in the newly created Department of Health. His studies in anthropology lead him to become Director at the Bishop Museum in Hawaii and a visiting Professor of Anthropology at Yale University. Buck was knighted in 1946. Here is his doctoral thesis, completed in 1910.
