Clement Gillman was concerned first with railway engineering

Officially he [Clement Gillman] was concerned first with railway engineering,then with water supply; unofficially mainly with geography in all its forms, particularly human geography. He had lived in Tanganyika longer than most non-natives, loved the Territory sincerely and did his utmost to direct development on sound lines. His only enemies were those who advocated this or that scheme without due investigation, his perpetual cry being the necessity of 'stock-taking' of all the natural resources.

Died while travelling by air from Dar es Salaam to Moshi. TNR quotes the obit in the Tanganyika Standard, initialed by D.R.G.
