BJ. William Plomer: Primary Materials

1. †‘An Afrikaner in Japan’. Natal Witness, 2 October, 6 November 1926; 12 February, 12 March, 19 March 1927.

Cited in Alexander (40). Plomer was required to present journalist’s credentials before Mori Katsue (see 7 and 10a) would agree to take him to Japan, and so Van der Post hastily arranged with the editor of Natal Witness for Plomer to be appointed  ‘special correspondent to Japan and the Far East’. These articles, described by Alexander as ‘pedestrian’, recount the journey aboard the Canada Maru and Plomer’s impressions during his initial five months in the country.
