New archives list - Gallagher papers on education and Lesotho

Continuing to highlight collections for which we have added detailed handlists to the ULRLS archives catalogue this post introduces the Gallagher collection.

Jack Gallagher worked as a teacher and education adviser in Lesotho during the 1980s and 1990s. He accumulated the material in this collection during this time: some relates directly to his work and personal interests, while other items were collected by him. Gallagher also donated a substantial collection of printed material on Lesotho to the Institute of Commonwealth Studies Library.

The Gallagher collection (ICS114) includes papers relating to the Univeristy of Lesotho and education in Lesotho, 1984-1991; records of the Teyateyaneng Centenary Committee, 1985-1986; photographs and slides for exhibitions, c.1985; papers concerning Basutoland law, 1951-1952; a copy of a published history of Basutoland, written in Sotho, 1917; and other miscellaneous items including personal correspondence.
