The golden needle : the biography of Frederick Stewart (1836-1889) by Gillian Bickley( file )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 7 libraries worldwide
Frederick Stewart, born in Buchan, Aberdeenshire, Scotland, was known by his contemporaries as the 'founder of Hong Kong Government education.' He was the first headmaster of the Central School, now Queen's College, which led Hong Kong English education from 1862 until 1911 when the first university in Hong Kong was established. Stewart became Registrar General, then Colonial Secretary, acting as Governor of Hong Kong on several occasions. He was keenly aware of his historical context at the meeting of the two cultures of East and West, and of his role as a facilitator in the modernisation of Chinese thought. His consistent policy was to educate pupils in Western knowledge, while preserving their Chinese identity, and he insisted on equal time for Chinese and English studies. Although retiring, unassuming and modest, Stewart was highly popular among the Chinese, foreign and Portuguese communities. By the end of his life, Stewart's intimate knowledge of Hong Kong was considered unequalled among non-Chinese in Hong Kong at the time

Footfalls echo in the memory : a life with the Colonial Education Service and the British Council in Asia by Verner Bickley( Book )
4 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 2 libraries worldwide
Annotation The Education Service was a vital sector of the British Colonial Service while the British Council has been paramount in promoting the English language and culture overseas. But are both agents of colonialism and neo-colonialism? Or simply altruistic conveyors of language and culture to a wider world? Verner Bickley as an Education Officer in British Colonial Service in Singapore and as British Council officer in Burma, Indonesia and Japan, shows how cultural values were uppermost and important in themselves though the medium of the near-universal English language, and vital for technical training. Bickley's service was set against a backdrop of political turbulence after World War II, colonial independence movements and the emergence of Japan as an economic powerhouse. This personal account of his career is enlivened by a succession of meetings with diverse personalities, including royalty, British and Thai, as well as writers like Anthony Burgess, Graham Greene and Willis Hall and actors such as Donald Sinden, Patrick Stewart and Max Adrian
