This collection - comprised of e-mail correspondence, newspaper clipping, internet searches, pamphlets, and notes - represents a lifetime of research by Carleton University Professor Emeritus Douglas Anglin. It tells the story of struggles for peace and democracy in Africa from the mid-20th century to the present.
Throughout his career, Anglin focused on the development of self-government throughout post-colonial Africa with attention to foreign policy, education, and military actions. The collection’s emphasis reflects Anglin’s interest in border conflicts and peacekeeping since the 1940s. Some notable subjects include the Rwandan Genocide & United Nations intervention, the Somali Civil War, and the South African Border War.
This collection was arranged by students working with ARC as part of Practicum in History through the Carleton University’s Department of History. A blog created to document this process and can be found at douglasanglinarchive.wordpress.com.
