Historical Notes: Sir Walter Clarke Buchanan was a farmer, a businessman, a politician, and a philanthopist. In 1871 he and an elder brother puchased the Tupurupuru station in the Wairarapa. Here he became a stock breeder, an advocate for refrigeration and a director on companies designed to effect this. His gift of 10,000 pounds to Victoria University for a chair in agriculture began a process which ended in the founding of Massey Agricultural College. He was a Member of Parliament for the Wairarapa from 1881 to 1914.
