Rattray, R S

Entry updated 12 September 2022. Tagged: Author.

(1881-1938) Indian-born anthropologist, lawyer, aviator and author, in UK from childhood; his Lost Race novel, The Leopard Princess (1934), which was dedicated to Paul Robeson (1898-1976), describes an autonomous native culture in the Gold Coast in extremely positive terms. A sequel, which may have been drafted, did not appear due to the author's death in a gliding accident. [JC]
