Louisa Jane Chapman (‘Louie’ – then aged about 17), youngest daughter of local sheep and dairy farmer William Chapman, perched with cat on the remains of an uprooted tree in the fields behind the family home on the corner of Boundary Road and Kairanga Road (present-day Tremaine Avenue and Botanical Road). Louie won a scholarship in 1911 to study at Victoria College, Wellington. After qualifying as a teacher and obtaining a B.A. degree in 1917, she received a first teaching appointment at Stratford High School, Taranaki. She died less than a year later, just before Christmas 1918, following an operation she underwent while in hospital in Palmerston North. Her family had learned just a few days earlier of the death of her younger brother, Will, while on active service in France.
