Scope and Contents note
This collection, consisting mostly of questionnaires, represents Aidan Southall and Marshall Clinard's research on nutrition and crime in Kampala, Uganda. Southall conducted his research during the 1950s in dense low income areas in Kampala. His surveys also include a small sample of urban chiefs, Asian and European households, and domestic servants. Clinard used Southall's work as a foundation for his own research in Kampala in 1968-1969 on urban crime. Surveys from Clinard's research are present in the collection, as well as crime statistics that he collected.
The collection is unarranged.
