23rd June 2004Death of S.B. Bourquin
By Keith Smith

I'm sorry to have to report the sad death in Durban on Saturday 12th June of Mr Bourquin, known to perhaps some of the people on this site. He was a great student and champion of the Zulu people and spoke isiZulu fluently. He left his large collection of photographs and documents to the Killie Campbell Library in Durban.

I to am saddened by the demise of mr Bourquin. i was never fortunate enough to meet the man, but when i first started to look at theA.Z.W in some depth the name Bourquin was attached to many primaary sources. im sure his legacy will be keenly studied for many generations to come..regards to all.
