Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
This collection includes an "Islam in Uganda" series of manuscripts and copies of works by Ugandan and foreign writers, from the era of the independent Uganda and the proceeding Protectorate.
Noel Q. King had just set up a Religious Studies Program in Makerere, Uganda, before coming to the University of California at Santa Cruz to teach Religious Studies as Professor of History and Comparative Religion in 1967. A Committee of Studies in Religious Studies was soon formed with Mr. King as Chairperson. Within a couple of years new courses in the history of the world's religions and in traditional African religions were added. By 1971 Religious Studies became an offical major granting a Bachelor of Arts degree. Mr. King was however affiliatied with the History Board. The reference collection included here was likely to serve both communities, History and Religious Studies.
