Chapter Summary

This section of the book titled Between Social Skills and Marketable Skills contains prominent Zanzibaris, employees in the Department of Education, and the names of local teachers. Major sources for the biographical dictionary were the ZNA files, in particular, the personal files (ZNA AB 86 series). In addition, Rhodes House/Oxford provided some material, in particular, on colonial administrators. Further information was gained in Zanzibar's newspapers, either pre-revolutionary papers such as al-Falaq, or recent publications such as Maarifa, an-Nuur or Dira, that often carried articles on religious scholars or other important persons as well as obituaries. Finally, the archive of Mwalimu Idris was a treasure of information and Mwalimu Idris has provided, in numerous meetings, biographical data.

Keywords: Mwalimu Idris; Zanzibaris
