Sir George Ruthven Le Hunte

Le Hunte was faced with the familiar problems of a plural society in a tropical colony: a resident planter community, which could exert strong pressures on the government, an immigrant Indian labour force under indenture, and an indigenous population whose rights and welfare needed protection. He was able to negotiate these reefs without major disasters.
