Colin Turnbull with parents, 1947
Colin Turnbull with his parents, Oxford, 1947. His advisor at Oxford wrote:"Colin Turnbull is tall, fair, handsome, inconsequent, impulsive and elusive; all his screws are loose...real communication with him seems impossible. Perhaps one has to belong to one of the 'backward races' in order to get his wavelength."
