About

M.Phil in British History at Oxford (current); BA with highest honours in History from Stetson University

I have no relation to the Rhodes Estate or the Rhodes Must Fall movement, nor is Rhodes related to my primary time period or topic (I am a Welsh medievalist).

I simply found an interesting historical point in the Rhodes debate, and decided to apply advanced research techniques to the question. What I found is illustrated below. All sources are held by the Bodleian library, and I am grateful to assorted librarians, professors, and other historians for their assistance, support, and (in one case) a very interesting breakfast conversation which inspired me to examine the topic.

  1. Speaking personally and not as one who is opposed to the suspect aims of some RMFO activists, the truth matters to me. From my own research I can find no evidence in support of the RMFO claims that Rhodes was a heinous criminal. The RMFO activists are just as likely to trash this work as they do with any other fact based submissions. On that note, I hope that the author does not suffer as a result of publishing a paper based upon an “evidence-based approach” as opposed to racially motivated campaign.
