Abstract

Louise Mary Roberts (1886-1968), Sister-in charge of the School of Massage, was held in high regard by all her staff and students during her tenure as Head, 1925 to 1946. Louise trained at the Dunedin School of Massage in 1918-1919 and was the first graduate from the school to undertake additional teacher training at St Thomas’s Hospital, London. The new approaches learnt during her time at St Thomas’s Hospital were to have a profound influence on her teaching at the School of Massage when she returned to Dunedin in 1925.
