Andrew Manson

Andrew Manson was awarded his Master's degree in History from Natal University, and specialised initially in the field of Natal and Zulu history. His thesis was published as part of a publication entitled The Hlubi Chiefdom in Natal/Zululand, with J Wright. He worked at the Killie Campbell Library and Archive as an oral historian, before taking up the position of archivist at the South African Institute of Race Relations in 1981. In 1984 he moved to what is now North-West University. In 1994 he was promoted to associate professor and, in 1996, to full professor in History and head of department. In 1998, he became dean of the Faculty of Human and Social Sciences. Professor Manson retired in 2003, but is currently actively writing and researching whilst attached to the universities of South Africa and the Witwatersrand.

He has researched widely in the field of Batswana history, specifically on the Bahurutshe in the Marico District, the formation of the Bechuanaland Frontier, western Transvaal rural history, and in aspects of the Bophuthatswana homeland. Much of this has been published in the Journal of Southern African Studies, the International Journal of Historical Studies, and the Canadian Journal of African Studies.
