ABSTRACT
The article examines papers written by the middle class Rhodesian colonist Miriam Staunton as records of women’s history and imperial history within the nation. A volunteer associated with the Federation of African Women's Clubs, which is also known as the Homecraft movement, Staunton worked to teach African women about health and hygiene. Her writings also provided insights into political changes within Rhodesia and the ramifications of the Rhodesian Unilateral Declaration of Independence (UDI).
