[Source - Nessa Leibhammer for FHYA, 2017, using Wikipedia: Sir Henry Bartle Frere was a British colonial administrator. He was the High Commissioner for Southern Africa, starting in 1877. During his time as the High Commissioner he attempted to merge the states of southern Africa into a British Confederation – this attempt was unsuccessful, led to resistance, and, ultimately, the Zulu and Boer wars. The Zulu War ended in a British victory, but the defeat of British forces at Isandhlwana and the high cost of the war, led to Frere being recalled. Some of the specimens he collected were donated by his sister, Miss Mary Frere. This material was accessioned in 1912.]
