Maker biography
Sir Theodore Rigg (1888-1972) was brought up in a Quaker family and served with the Friends War Relief Committee in World War 1 and then during the Russian Revolution. He married an American woman Esther White and returned to New Zealand. He was employed at the Cawthron Institute as an agricultural chemist and became director in 1933. He was knighted in 1938 and retired in 1956. Upon retiring he began researching the Quakers in early Nelson history. He did not publish a book on this topic.

From past to present

Since the beginning we have firmly focused on research that contributes to the economic growth of New Zealand and the preservation of its special environment.

From the 1920s onwards, our scientists applied their expertise to agricultural research to support the pipfruit and hop growing industries. Then, as timber exports took off, they progressed to forestry research.

Today our science is strongly focused on protecting marine and freshwater environments, and supporting sustainable development of the dairy, seafood and aquaculture sectors.

This pragmatic approach has worked for Cawthron Institute, and the industries our research has underpinned, for over 90 years. [ 26/03/2020]
