J. S. Tennant to an unknown correspondent
4th November, 1955
Botany Department, University of Otago
John Smaillie Tennant's fondness for his time at Otago was superbly expressed by a bequest of £1000 to the ‘Biological Department’, specifically (as in this copy of his letter) to the ‘Botanical Dept’ and towards ‘some sort of research in the native flora of NZ.’ Tennant’s legacy is very much alive today. The Tennant Fund, which he bequeathed to the Department, supports, among other things, the Tennant Lecture, which is an annual event in the Department’s calendar.
