Foundation of the University of Canterbury

Since its foundation in 1873, the University of Canterbury (originally Canterbury College) has impacted on the settlement of our region. The three founding professors (Cook, Bickerton and Macmillan Brown) migrated to New Zealand from the United Kingdom.  All three were to play key roles in the intellectual and social life of Christchurch in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.

The University continues to have an impact on the settlement of Canterbury, as each year students and staff from around New Zealand and overseas move here to study and work.

Please direct any enquiries about the images to  Macmillan Brown Library, University of Canterbury.
