Gardner, W.J., Beardsley, E.T. and Carter, T.E. (ed. Phillips, N.C.), "A History of the University of Canterbury, 1873-1973," Christchurch, University of Canterbury, 1973.
"This book offers a fascinating glimpse of Christchurch history and society and, in particular, of the tiny, stormy world-within- a-world into which Dr Hulme and his family came and left their mark.
The book is extraordinary (almost unbelievable, in fact) in its tact and reserve and its intense introspection. I shall endeavour to withhold comment as much as possible and let the reader draw their own conclusions. "A History..." provides very useful information about Dr Hulme, his career at Canterbury University College, and a little about the environment of his new home. Knowing the other material in this FAQ, there is actually a mine of information buried between the lines of this book. "
