History

[Source - Killie Campbell website 2016 http://campbell.ukzn.ac.za/?q=node/42: The Killie Campbell Africana Library is well known for its comprehensive collection of books, manuscripts and photographs, covering a broad sweep of information about the south east African region and its population.

Some highlights of this collection are the Historic Photograph Holdings, a large section of which is accessible on the web, the James Stuart Papers which record some 200 testimonies of oral history and tradition taken down by this early 20th century Natal civil servant. Killie and her father Sir Marshall organized the first Zulu History competition in 1912, and this material was added to with further competitions in 1942 and 1950.]
