Frederick Lugard, 1st Baron Lugard(1858-1945), Soldier, administrator, colonial governor and writer
Sitter in 22 portraits
Soldier, explorer of Africa and colonial administrator, Governor of Hong Kong and Governor-General of Nigeria, Lugard was Britain's most famous African Colonial Governor in the age of empire and a pre-eminent colonial thinker in the inter-war years. His life and work spanned all but the final stage of the whole history of British rule in tropical Africa. Three periods were of particular importance: his vigorous action in Uganda in 1890-92, his influential administration of Northern Nigeria from 1900 until 1906, and his amalgamation of the two Nigerians into one administrative entity (1912-18).
