A student’s life: Massey University Palmerston North 1973-1976
There are very few pictures of my life as an undergraduate student at Massey University. These pictures comprise most of my collection:
- a few photos of my student quarters in City Court;
- the graduation procession (procesh) where undergraduates create a fancy dress cavalcade;
- classmates in the Bachelor of Technology degree programme; and
- flatmates appreciating their graduation dinner.
People in the photos include: Margaret Mellalieu (Meg, my mother), Ronald Lawrence, Robert Shirley, and Philip Jenkins.
One picture shows my mother and I in graduation clothing outside our student flat in which I resided May 1974 through February 1976. The flat was condemned and demolished soon after we departed for our careers as teachers and postgraduate students.
