WW1 and Victoria University

To mark Anzac Day and the centenary of the 1915 Gallipoli landings, the Library has created a digital collection of World War I material.
The material, which is publicly available, includes the Victoria University Archive’s Honour Roll, which lists the names of then current students and former students who were killed during World War I.

The collection also includes archival material related to Professor von Zedlitz, one of Victoria’s founding professors, who was forced from his post at Victoria due to the Alien Enemy Teachers Act 1915.

You can view this archival material online at http://library.victoria.ac.nz/files/exhibit/wwi/.

These works have a permanent home as part of the NZETC history of Victoria University collection available at http://nzetc.victoria.ac.nz/tm/scholarly/tei-corpus-VUWHistory.html
