Chapter Summary

In the first two decades of the twentieth century, in both civil and military circles, there was a strong emphasis on social conformity. Christopherson, as a civilian doctor, bitterly resented the fact that he had not achieved the rank of Pasha and he never fully adapted to the predominantly military hierarchy of the administration. Sir Reginald Wingate was offered the post of High Commissioner to Egypt in 1916. The Wellcome Lab on the Nile was an extraordinary and generous gift to tropical medicine, to science, and to the people of Sudan. It began with much fanfare as a centre for gathering samples of everything-animal, vegetable and mineral. What is Christopherson's place in the history of Sudan? His name is found almost exclusively by those trawling the early twentieth-century issues of the Lancet and BMJ, the J. of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene and one or two books on parasitology.

Keywords: Dr. J.B. Christopherson; Sudan; twenty-first century; Wellcome Lab
