Column "Sadler Says Africans Not Ready to Govern"

Description

This column published in the Richmond Alumni Bulletin describes the opinion of University of Richmond alumni, Dr. George W. Sadler, class of 1910. Sadler was the board secretary for Africa, Europe, and the Near East. According to Sadler, there was still "great missionary work" left to do in Africa, and until countries developed "a corp of men and women of Christian character" they would not be able to self-govern.
