This article explores the possible links between the literary works of the writer and colonial administrator, Robert Arnaud (1873–1950; better known by his literary pseudonym Robert Randau) and Amadou Hampaté Bâ. The author of Wangrin and Oui, mon commandant! was well-acquainted with Arnaud who, following a career devoted largely to Islamic issues, became in 1924 an inspector of administrative affairs in Upper Volta and, in 1927–28, served as acting governor of this territory. The personal papers of Arnaud both shed new light on certain administrative incidents that are also described in the works of Hampâté Bâ and also allow us to think in new ways about the role played by Africans in French colonial rule.
