Vorster was born in 1915 Jamestown, Eastern Cape, Union of South Africa, the fifteenth child of a successful sheep farmer. He attended primary school there. Vorster entered Stellenbosch University, known as the “cradle of Afrikaner nationalism” to study Law.
With six out of the seven South African Prime Ministers between 1910-1971 having been students there, its influence on the development of Afrikaner culture has been profound. Vorster involved himself in student politics becoming the Chairman of the debating society, deputy chairman of the student council and Leader of the junior National Party.
