This 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 churchman, an MP, and eventually Governor of the country. In 1964 the Rhodesian Front declared UDI, but he remained at his post in Government House for a further five years, and was a conduit for negotiations between the British Government and the rebel regime.

Author Biography

ALAN MEGAHEY read History at Cambridge, and was ordained in 1971. He has spent most of his career in independent schools, as Head of History and as a housemaster; he is currently Chaplain of Uppingham School.

He gave the address at the funerals of both Sir Humphrey in 1990, in Zimbabwe, and Dame Molly Gibbs, in 1997 in Kent.
