1937-1939
Detailed memoirs by P. Hogg of his period in Soderi, drawn from his diaries. Subjects covered reflect the variety of his duties, many of which were carried out whilst on trek: routine office administration, hearing legal cases, collecting taxes, mapping, attending tribal gatherings, meeting tribal leaders and colleagues, establishing boundaries, and reporting on the condition of wildlife, as well as pursuing private antiquarian and botanical interests. Includes an account of an extended trek north-west from Soderi to Jebel Rahib, Wadi Howar and Wadi Magrur in northern Darfur from Dec 1938 to Jan 1939 (815/11/26-31)
