About Sir Julius Vogel

Sir Julius Vogel, KCMG (24 February 1835 – 12 March 1899) was the eighth Premier of New Zealand. His administration is best remembered for the issuing of bonds to fund railway construction and other public works. He remains the only practising Jewish prime minister of New Zealand (although two others including current Prime Minister John Key and former Prime Minister Francis Bell are of Jewish extraction, both from the mothers' side). -------------------- See: Dalziel, Raewyn.
