Karen Brown of the School of Fine Arts of Indiana University supplied the following note: 'An event for the British Association for the Advancement of Science visit in 1905. I believe that this dance was organized by Sir Marshall Campbell, the sugar baron, whose estate was at Mt. Edgecombe (north of Durban). He was the father of Dr. Killie Campbell, historian and collector of Africana'.
