John Smaillie Tennant
Alexander Turnbull Library, Wellington, New Zealand, Ref: No. PAColl-3438
Before the arrival of Professor Benham in 1898, John Smaillie Tennant (1865-1958) carried out class work in zoology and botany with William Mawson; he gained his BSc in 1892 and an MA in 1899. A move to Wellington saw Tennant become an Inspector of Schools, and later, in 1923, Chair of Education at Victoria University, Wellington. He was also fortunate to be part of the ‘Botany’ team of the 1907 Sub-Antarctic Islands Scientific Expedition, a New Zealand scientific expedition organised by the Philosophical Institute of Canterbury.
