For 8 NU
By Tat Peck
Feature Editor
Students at the University last
week were given an opportunity
to hear a new lecturer in some
of their classes.
He was Henry A. Fosbrooke,
senior sociologist to the Tangany
ika government in East Africa.
While on the campus he lectured
to two sociology classes, a geo
graphy seminar, a political science
class, a community development
group, a class in ag economics,
an anthropology and a social
science seminar. The political
science class, and the anthrop
ology and social science seminars
were open to all interested stu
dents and faculty members. Fos
brooke spoke at a faculty lunch
eon on Wednesday.
Fosbrooke was graduated from
Cambridge University, England,
in economics and anthropolgy.
In 1931 he took a position with
the Tanganyika government as
district officer and district com
missioner. In 1948 he took the
research job as senior sociol
ogist. His trip to the United States
was made possible by "Fulbright,
Carnegie, the Tanganyika govern
ment and the British Colonial
Office" according to Fosbrooke.
Fulbright provided the means of
bringing him to this country;
Carnegie provided for local travel
the Tanganyika government gave
him a leave and the British
Colonial Office nrovided the con-
version of pounds sterling into
His purpose in coming to the
United States, Fosbrooke says.

is to establish contact with uni
versities to learn the current
trend in anthropological and
sociological thought, to give
potential research workers in
Africa an idea of projects in
which they can profitably en
gage and to give them an idea
of working conditions in the
field. His visit to the University
was under the auspices of the
University Research Council.
Fosbrooke indicated that he
would be happy to correspond
with prospective applicants for
Fullbright Scholarships or other
awards, who are considering pro
jects on Tanganyika. He said that
in his contacts with students in
the United States he had found
them lacking in the knowledge of
local conditions in Tanganyika.
This knowledge is not easily ob
tained from texbooks he said.
Students wishing to correspond
with Fosbrooke may write: Henry
A. Fosbrooke, Box 308, Arusha,
Tanganyika. He will be at this
address after January 1, 1953.
Following his visit at the Uni
versity, Fosbrooke will travel to
Sante Fe and Albuquerque,
N. M., where he will make con
tact with the Indian department
and the university museum. He
plans to visit such Negro insti
tutions as Tuskogec and Fisk.
Tanganyika, the country in
which Fosbrooke works, has been
under the Trusteeship Council
since the establishment of the
United Nations. Forbrooke defined
