Humphrey Gibbs Beleaguered Governor: Southern Rhodesia, 1929 69
This book is a biography of Sir Humphrey Gibbs, an upper-class Englishman who settled in Southern Rhodesia soon after it became a self-governing colony. He was a leading farmer and churchmen, and MP, and eventually Governor of the country. In 1964 the Rhodesian Front declared Unilateral Declaration of Independence (UDI), but he remained at his post in Government House for a further five years, and was a conduit for negotiation between the British Government and the regime.
