Honorary doctors

The donor Fredrik Gustaf Ekman, who, among other things, was behind the establishment of an Oceanography Department was appointed Göteborg University College’s first honorary doctor in 1907. In 1916 the composer Wilhelm Stenhammar and the Director of Gothenburg’s Ethnographic Museum, Erland Nordenskiöld were appointed honorary doctors. After the College became a University in 1954 the conferment ceremony was held every other year. It wasn’t until the early 1970s that annual conferment ceremonies were introduced.
