General Pau Prize

The late Dr G H Hogg, MD, CM, of Launceston, donated $11 each year from 1918 to 1950 to the University, for a prize in Oral French called the General Pau French Prize. The prize was continued after Dr Hogg’s death by Professor LA Triebel of the University of Tasmania, and in 1952 the University received from Dr Hogg’s estate $300 for the purpose of continuing the prize.
