Biographical / Historical
This collection is the result of the work of the Oxford Development Records Project relating to higher education in Africa. The project set out to record the experiences and preserve the reminiscences of people who had been involved in higher education, both during and after the colonial period, whether as academics or indirectly (such as those who worked for the Inter University Council). An aide-memoire was sent to potential contributors, which they were invited to answer in the form of a memorandum, adding any original papers they were willing to donate. The period mainly covered was from the end of World War Two to independence.
The papers are arranged alphabetically by the surname of the contributor.
