  • W. David McIntyre


IN Malaya,1 Sir Andrew Clarke’s impact was immediate and lasting. Before Wolseley’s Kumasi expedition had even reached its objective, Clarke appointed the first British Residents in the Malay States.

In subsequent years they became the instruments of British political control in the Malay States. Clarke’s governorship is still regarded as one of the watersheds in Malayan history.
