Abstract

Important players in the development of the settlement’s educational landscape included the Otago Association, the Church, and the Provincial Government, who actively encouraged and supported higher education. Yet even before settlement, education was a focus. This is evident in the first issue of the Otago Journal, here, published in Edinburgh in January 1848. A fund was raised from the price paid for land to found ‘educational and religious institutions’. Under the heading ‘The Otago Scheme further explained’, it states that the funds were to be ‘set apart for churches and schools, and a college.’ In this instance, ‘college’ meant University.
