Trevor Huddleston

(1913-1998), Bishop and anti-apartheid campaigner

(Ernest Urban) Trevor Huddleston

Sitter in 5 portraits
Brought up in India and England, his social conscience was roused by experiences in India and by seeing hunger marches through Oxford as a student in the 1930s. In 1943 was sent to the townships of Sophiatown and Orlando, Johannesburg. Over the next thirteen years, Huddleston actively protested against South Africa's apartheid policies, and his book Naught for your Comfort (1956) became an immediate bestseller. Huddleston was a founder of the Anti-Apartheid Movement. Archbishop Desmond Tutu wrote 'If you could say that anybody single-handedly made apartheid a world issue then that person was Trevor Huddleston'. He later became Bishop of Masasi in Tanzania in 1960, Stepney, 1968-78 and Mauritius in 1978.
