ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS

THIS study, a revised and extended version of my doctoral thesis, would not have been possible without the generous help of many individuals and institutions. In this age of shrinking budgets for research in the humanities, I gratefully acknowledge indispensable financial support from the Commonwealth Scholarship Commission, Nuffield College, the University of Oxford Beit Fund, the Rockefeller Archive Center, the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada, and the Rhodes Trust.

I have been fortunate in having congenial places in which to research. I would like to thank Jane Hogan and Lesley Forbes at the University of Durham Library, Ali Salih Karrar at the National Records Office, Khartoum, Tom Rosenbaum at the Rockefeller Archive Center, John Davies at Glaxo Wellcome, and Shirley Dixon at the Wellcome Institute for the History of Medicine Library, for guiding me through the archives in their care. I have become something of a regular in Durham and at the Rockefeller Archive Center and would like to particularly thank Jane, Tom, and the staff of the Palace Green Library for their warm hospitality, and for their patience with copyright queries.

I am delighted to thank Josephine Street for permission to quote from the papers of her grandfather, Sir F. R. Wingate; Janet Cropley for permission to quote from the papers of her father, T. R. H. Owen; Mary Macdonald for permission to quote from her unpublished notes on the Spence letters; Dr T. P. Ormerod for permission to quote from the papers of his uncle, Dr J. B. Christopherson; and Max Ward for permission to quote from the papers of his grandfather, Sir Basil Neven-Spence. I am grateful to the Rockefeller Archive Center for permission to quote from the Rockefeller Foundation papers and to reproduce Plate 3; to Glaxo Wellcome for permission to quote from the Wellcome papers; to the University of Durham Library for permission to reproduce Plates 1, 2, 4, and 5; and to Prof. Hassen Osman Abdel Nour, State Minister in Sudan's Ministry of Agriculture and Forestry, for permission to reproduce the irrigation data in Table 4.1, from W. N. Allan, "'Irrigation in the Sudan'", in J. D. Tothill, Agriculture in the Sudan ( London: Oxford University Press, 1948), table opposite p. 608. An early version of Chapter 7 appeared in the Journal of African History, 39/ 2 ( 1998) under the title "'MidwiferyTraining and Female Circumcision in the Inter-war Anglo-Egyptian Sudan'"
