Abstract

John Morris Scobie was born in Scotland in 1911, arriving in New Zealand in 1920. He was educated in Christchurch and taught in Auckland before becoming a master at the Southland Technical College from 1946 to 1953. During his years in Invercargill, he was prominent in the Southland musical scene. He conducted the Radio 4YZ choral singers, and established the Invercargill Symphony Orchestra. Later he moved to the North Island to become the first Principal of Wairoa College. The designer of his somewhat overlarge woodcut bookplate is unknown.
