: 1926-1976

: Colin Carlin was brought up in Abercorn, Northern Rhodesia (now Mbala, Zambia). His father John, who had been a journalist and newspaper editor, established a printing business, Lake Press Limited, and started the Abercornucopia, a monthly newspaper devoted to news from the community, in 1962. Colin was educated in Africa and worked in business in the newly independent Zambia until 1973 when he returned to the UK. He has built up a collection of material relating to the history of Abercorn, and runs the website www.abercornucopia.com. The material in this collection consists of magazines and books collected by Mr Carlin in the course of his business career in Zambia, and three photograph albums compiled by the Chandor family of Moshi, Tanzania. The magazines and journals have not yet been catalogued. This catalogue was produced with support from the National Cataloguing Grants Programme for Archives
