Researching and cataloging for a future book - The Cottar Family in Africa

3 posts in this topic

We are looking for an enthusiastic person to help research and catalogue our family archives which are here in Nairobi , for a book that we are writing on our 100 years in Africa. It will be a coffee table book, lots of pics, the main story being of the family timeline through the generations, with additional stories and adventures described here and there throughout the book.

 

Besides being about the history, the book will also be looking at the changed attitudes over the last 100 years towards wildlife by both westerners and Africans, and how the Cottar's represented and indeed often pioneered the changes in wildlife conservation methods and ideology during this time.

 

We are looking for candidates who are passionate about safari and its history and not looking to get paid. They must have time - a couple of months at least - and can get themselves here to nairobi on their own steam. We are happy to provide room and board. Successful candidates would get a mention in the book as a research assistant to the main writer and the opportunity for a safari for three days to Cottar's 1920's Camp in the Maasai Mara after successful completion of the job.

A tempting offer for someone with time and skill and financial means. What a fascinating journey through the Cottar files it will be.
