From 1921 to 1925 he attended King’s College (where he became dux), and then the University of Otago, Dunedin, from 1926 to 1929, where he was attracted to Classics under the influence of the figure of T. D. Adams, the dynamic and gifted professor of the subject who drew wide audiences to his lectures.
