Dr J. Malcolm Bolton
Friday 13 October 2006
I have recently returned to Oxford having spent over a year at the hospital Dr J. Malcolm Bolton [obituary by the Earl of Cranbrook, 2 October] established near Kuala Lumpur for the Orang Asli, the indigenous minority of Peninsular Malaysia,
writes Juliet Bedford. I was there to conduct research for a DPhil in Social Anthropology and followed in the footsteps of Dr Bolton, visiting health posts and remote villages through the flying doctor service that he established.
My Orang Asli friends and colleagues across the country continue to speak highly of the man and his invaluable work. In almost every Orang Asli village that I visited, people would gather to ask me if I knew him - even though some of them had not seen him for more than 20 years, still his legend and courage lives on.
