Biographical / Historical
Werner Otto Droescher (1911-1978) came to New Zealand in 1940 with his wife, the writer Greville Texidor, as a refugee from Nazi Germany. After working on a farm in the north he enrolled for a B.A. degree at Auckland University College, took a Masters' degree in German in 1945, and ultimately joined the staff of the German Department. Between 1961 and 1969 he studied and recorded the Egerland dialect of the original settlers as it had survived at Puhoi, and published a monograph on the subject in 1975.
