U.C.R.N. Manpower Survey Sub-Commitee
MetadataShow full item record
This report on the High Level Manpower requirements in Southern Rhodesia arose out of discussions with Mr. Alan Pifer in 1960. Subsequently a grant from the Carnegie Corporation made it possible for Professor E. A. G. Robinson of Cambridge University, England, to visit the College in December 1960 to advise on the feasibility of such a survey. On the basis of his report the Carnegie Corporation graciously provided a grant which made available the advice and assistance of Professor F. Harbison, Director of the Industrial Relations Section of Princeton University and Professor G. Seltzer of the Industrial Relations Center of the University of Minnesota, together with that of Professor Robinson, for the purpose of conducting a survey of High Level Manpower requirements in the territories which then constituted the Federation of Rhodesia and Nyasaland. Professor Seltzer was able to visit the College for some months to acquaint himself with local conditions and Professors Harbison and Robinson were both able to make shorter visits. The College set up an internal Manpower Survey Sub-Committee of Professors Milton, Taylor and Mitchell to co-ordinate and administer the scheme and to serve as an advisory body. The College also called upon a committee of 12 members of Government Departments, Mining, Farming, Industrial and Management organisations to advise it on matters affecting the survey.
