Dunedin historian wins notable prize

Dunedin historian wins notable prize

Dunedin historian and author Jane McCabe is the co-winner of the latest national Ian Wards Prize, continuing a remarkable streak by city historians in winning the prize.

Dr McCabe is a lecturer in history in the University of Otago department of history and art history, and her prize-winning book is titled Race, Tea and Colonial Settlement.

The book was based on her Otago PhD thesis, which focused on a group of 130 Anglo-Indian children, known as the Kalimpong kids.

They left northeastern India for new lives in Otago between 1908 and 1938, through a migration scheme founded by Rev Dr John Anderson Graham, a Scottish Presbyterian missionary in Kalimpong.

The boys worked on farms and the girls were placed as domestic help with Otago Presbyterian families.

Dr McCabe was presented with the Archives and Records Association of New Zealand (ARANZ) prize in Dunedin last week.
