DescriptionBeginning in 1964 with three successive grants from the National Science Foundation, the Program of Eastern African studies of Syracuse University has acquired an extraordinary collection of microfilms relative to eastern Africa. Most of the microfilms pertain to Kenya, where the project was begun, but records now are being received from Ethiopia, where the project is currently being administered. The records on Kenya, extending through the entire period the British Colonial Administration, 1895-1963, and consisting of private as well as official sources, comprise the fullest and most valuable collection anywhere in the world on a developing country. Moreover, included in the Kenya collection are nearly all the records of the Eastern Asians. They alone are apparently the most extensive set of records on an overseas Indian community.
