This study presents a history, based on original archival and
primary source material, of the Baptist mission educational
situation of Cameroon province from 1922 to 1945. The provisions of
the League of Nations' mandate, under which Great Britain
administered the province in this period, included 'complete
freedom of conscience and the free exercise of all forms of
worship', yet from the beginning of the Mandate clear tensions
existed. The missions desired education to serve evangelical
purposes, while the colonial government strove for a uniform
adaptionist program, suited to European perceptions of the
abilities, traditions and local conditions of the African
The work relates thus to a number of themes: European colonialism;
the Mandate system; international theories of education; a
comparison of British, American and German influences;
cross-cultural mission work; and the personal contributions of
three particular missionaries: Bender, Gebauer and Dunger.
