Abstract

As is evident in his bookplate, Richard Lawson (1875-1971) had links with Australia. He was born in Victoria and attended the University of Melbourne where he graduated MA. Lawson had a particular interest in Classical Studies, and his bookplate says ‘His Book’ in Greek. In 1923, Lawson came to Dunedin to take up the role of the Foundation Professor of Education at Otago, and he remained in the position until his death. It is not certain how Hilda Wiseman came to design this bookplate, but it is one of over 100 that she executed over a fifty-year period.
