The Classical Association of South Africa: Further documents 1955 – 1959

W J Henderson


Since the publication of the article on the Classical Association of South Africa (CASA), covering the period from 1955 to 1961,1 more documents, all from files of the CASA Executive, which were not available at the time of writing, have been added to the archive, which is kept in the School of Ancient Languages and Text Studies at North-West University. It is therefore necessary to place these documents on record in order to present a fuller account of the activities of the Association during the early years of its existence. The documents offer testimony of the dedication and enthusiasm of the early members, of how they surmounted problems of communication and travel, of the creation of international links, and of the struggle to preserve the Classical tradition. They also reveal much about the issues, attitudes and mind-set of the period.
