Abstract

On 30 September 1870, Professors John Shand (Natural Philosophy); George Sale (Classics); and Duncan Macgregor (Mental and Moral Philosophy and Political Economy), were the first appointed to the University. Later appointments included James Gow Black (Chemistry, 1872); Frederick W. Hutton (Natural Science, 1873); and George H. F. Ulrich (Director of School of Mines, 1878). Shand and Sale were up against 62 contenders each. The professorial salary was fixed at £600, and each were given £150 for their passage and general outfitting. Shand was given an extra £200 for scientific apparatus and specimens. Macgregor was funded by The Trustees for Religious and Educational Uses, and the Synod of Otago and Southland.
