About Oral History
Davidson, Michael (Lawyer)
Use Restriction Status:
Michael Davidson served as a Peace Corps Volunteer in Kenya from 1964 to 1966. Michael recounts his experience as the land settlement officer of the Kipri settlement scheme in the Kinangop Plateau region of Kenya. He was one of 30 to 40 volunteers seconded to the Kenyan government after the country's independence in order to help manage settlement during the transition period. Settlement schemes were designed to foster a peaceful transfer of property ownership from European colonialist farmers to native Kenyans, who bought sub-divided portions of previous land holdings using loans provided by the United Kingdom and others. The schemes also included agriculture, health, and veterinary support to farmers. 1 digital audio file. Interviewed and recorded by Evelyn Ganzglass, November 11, 2015.
