Otto KromePrint Page Print this page

Gates commemorate Otto Georg Hermann Dittmar Krome (1863-1917), educationist. 

In 1890 Krome migrated to Victoria and worked for a period as a labourer at Bendigo until his papers arrived allowing him to teach locally at St. Andrew’s and Girton and later Newnham and Wesley Colleges in Melbourne from 1893.

In 1906 Krome succeeded J. R. Corr as headmaster of Methodist Ladies' College, Kew, and inaugurated a period of outstanding academic achievement and strong school spirit — among day-girls as well as boarders. He introduced the prefect system and a sports club to encourage team games, inter-form competition, swimming sports and lifesaving.
