Scope and content

[Source - Chloe Rushovich for FHYA, 2018: The FHYA selection from Richard Patrick’s material consists of material specifically related to his work on Swazi lineages and his time in Swaziland, as well as a biography of Richard Patrick written by Bob Forrester. Patrick began interviewing people in Swaziland in the early 80s after having read James Matsebula’s ‘History of Swaziland’. He worked as a photo archivist at the ‘Times of Swaziland’. He published Swazi lineages in the paper and wrote articles on history. He joined a regiment and was given the name Mdvumowencwala. He then worked as a researcher in the National Museum in Lobamba. This material has been uploaded by the FHYA with the permission of the Patrick family.]
