They Built for the Future: A Chronicle of Makerere University College 1922-1962 (Hardback)

Unavailable. Replaced by new product or edition.


This is the story of Makerere College from its inception in 1922 when fourteen day boys began to study carpentry, building and mechanics. In 1949 the greatly developed college entered into a special relationship with the University of London and began to prepare students for degrees of that university. The story is brought up to 1962 when with one thousand graduate and undergraduate students and with impressive buildings spread over 400 acres the University College was preparing to merge its identity with the Royal College, Nairobi and the University College, Dar es Salaam to form the new degree-granting University of East Africa. Throughout East Africa these men and women of all races hold prominent positions in the civil services and form the backbone of the professions. The chronicle of Makerere is so closely bound up with the history of East Africa that this book will be welcomed by students of African affairs as well as by alumni of the College and by those concerned with education in Africa.
