Captain Speedy of Larut

Journal of the Malayan Branch of the Royal Asiatic Society Volume XXVI,

Part 3 - November 1953

by

JM Gullick

This short biography illuminates the impact of one of the British colonial administration's more colourful characters on Perak in the late 19th century. Speedy, as Assistant Resident of Larut, was the first European administrator of the area, then the principal tin mining district of the country. A bit of an eccentric who enjoyed playing his bagpipes dressed up in a leopard skin, he was nevertheless reportedly liked by the community in which he worked, but frequently upset his colonial administrative colleagues. Black and white plates and a map. Very Good Paperback. First Edition 103 pages.
