Photographs of Africa, with some of England and the Caribbean, 1933 - 1971
Scope and Contents
Photographs of Fergus Wilson's time in East Africa and other countries during his colonial service, including many images of Makerere University College, those relating to agricultural education and the daily life of local people.
Originally, the images were housed in numerous envelopes which were not all labelled, and arranged in six boxes identifying various geographic locations. Captions have been recorded as found and may include language which is offensive, inaccurate or inappropriate. They have been retained to reflect the context of the collection's creation. Captions supplied by the cataloguer are enclosed in square brackets. An effort has been made to group the images by country, but due to many duplications and conflicting or missing captions or labels, in some cases, misidentifications may have been made. Y304Q/10 contains many images duplicated elsewhere in the collection, and in some cases additional information is given here.
