Seven Crested Cranes

Roger St. Vincent produced two versions of “Seven Crested Cranes”. The first is based on that originally published by the Canadian Immigration Historical Society twenty years ago and re-released for the fortieth  anniversary of the Ugandan movement in 2012. The second version, which is on the Carleton University Uganda Archive web site, was published by Roger in 2012. It is based on a more profusely illustrated version that appeared as Chapter 10 of his self-published autobiography “A Fortunate Life”. The texts of the two versions have minor variations.

The Uganda Collection

CIHS facilitated the transfer to Carleton University of an important archive of 1972 Canadian, Ugandan and international newspaper clippings about the expulsion Uganda’s Asian community. 6,000 Ugandan Asians came to Canada with visas issued by the team sent to Kampala in the fall of 1972 and approximately 2,000 more came the following year. This resource and other documents on the movement are on the web.
