oa Civil Engineering = Siviele Ingenieurswese - Francois Paul van der Merwe : obituary
Paul van der Merwe was born and also grew up in Stellenbosch. From standard two (now grade 4) he was a boarder at St George's Grammar School in Cape Town. He studied at the University of Cape Town from 1953 and became a land surveyor. As the family grew, however, he realised that his career would often take him away for long periods of time. He then decided to return to the University of Cape Town in 1961 to study civil engineering.
