Ol Molog

I recently was made aware of your ntz.info website. It has been wonderful to read about all our old friends --- my husband, Campbell, and I had a farm at Ol Molog from 1946 to 1959.

Our son, Stuart, went to Arusha school. He recently returned there with his son in January of this year, finding the school in good shape. He also was pleased to find our house on Ol Molog still in good condition.

I would be very pleased to share some of my memories, if you are interested.

Stuart Webb - Arusha School - 1948 - 53

I was back in Arusha in January 2008 with my son, a botanist with Harvard University working in Borneo, and dropped in to see Arusha School. I was there from about 1948 to 1953 before heading off to Michaelhouse in Natal, SA. We were on a walking safari with Paul Oliver who recommended looking up your site when I returned to the UK.

We managed to get out to our old farm at Ol Molog, went through our old house and wandered about the farm which has changed little in the intervening years. We were kindly invited to dinner at Simba Estate by the current owner (Sjouke Bruinsma) of our farm and that of De Beer and spent a pleasant evening discussing times past. Little has changed in the farming world at Ol Molog since the days of my father (Cam Webb) - still talking about rainfall and bags per acre.

We left Tanganyika in 1960 to return to the UK. I went on to read Agricultural Economics at Cornell University, then obtained an MBA and ended up on Wall Street. Later, I returned to London, worked as a merchant banker before retiring to a farm in West Sussex.

Bernard and Freda Wallace they had a farm between Moshi and Arusha.

Drino and Winnie Baskira (they were Italian) and Drink used to go to the Crater with my Father.

Happy Christmas to you all!!

Stuart Webb, Joan Webb

I was interested to read that Stuart Webb had visited Olmolog and his family's old farm.

My family lived up at Olmolog as well in the 50's and 60's and early 70's. I went to Arusha School at the same time as Stuart and my mother Gladys Palfrey, who lives in South Africa, was friendly with Mrs. Joan Webb.

I left Tanzania in 1960 and lived in the U.S. and Canada before moving to the Middle East and Australia. I live in Texas now but all my surviving family currently live in South Africa. My mother, Gladys Palfrey is in her mid nineties and still going strong.
