DM2008102808:SAED:POLITICS:PERSONALITIES:DEC 1959 – The Man They Called A Traitor – Trouble among the students – There was trouble when Prof. J.Ross, rector-to-be, visited Fort Hare. Here, Principal Prof. Burrows clams crowd. A man of principles, is Professor Matthews. He has resigned his post as lecturer in African Studies at Fort Hare University College. Why? Because he would not be the “good boy” of a tribal college which is what Fort Hare will become. By resigning he stands to lose about 7,000 in pension rights. A man made of less stern stuff would have stayed on. But not Matthews. (Photograph by Drum Photographer BAHA)
