Abstract

New Zealand, with its short history, has a proud record in the development of radiation oncology. The first independent department of radiotherapy was formed in Dunedin in 1931, and the first clinical physicist was appointed in Wellington in 1933. Prominent research workers include the radiobiologist Dr. John Read and the physicist Sir Ernest Rutherford.
