Sir Ronald Storrs

In his memoirs (Orientations) Northern Rhodesia is hardly mentioned, apart from the intolerable social protocol where the only black person a white man could shake by the hand was the Lozi (Barotze) paramount. He oversaw the transfer of the capital from Livingstone to Lusaka, but he was not in the colony long enough to make an impression and in 1934 was invalided out of tropical service in circumstances that have never been explained.
