Biography of Sir Adamjee


Several people have contributed to the making of this biography. At the outset we would like to acknowledge the work of Habib Lakhani and Rafiq Dhorajvi whose biographies of Sir Adamjee in English and Gujarati respectively from the basis of this book.

Yahya Hashim Bawany and Sabiah Hassan undertook the research for this project. Mr Bawany was instrumental in procuring source documents including the correspondence with the Quaid-e-Azam and the minutes of the early meetings of the Memon Education and welfare Society (MEWS). The book would not have been complete without the help of Saleem Tabani, Administrator, Adamjee Foundation, who provided the photographs and documents that from the appendices and Adam Noor Honorary General Secretary of the Bombay chapter of MEWS who provided us with the latest information on the working of MEWS.

We would also like to think Adnan Ahmed and Hasina Adamjee, the granddaughter and great – grandson of Sir Adamjee, for conducting the research for the book at the British Newspaper Library at Colindale, London.

Ashraf Adamjee, a grandson of Sir Adamjee, contributed tremendously to the biography in
 
terms of time and interest. The Chapter on Adamjee's confrontation with the Swedish match king, Ivar Krueger has been contributed entirely by him, as have grealy benefited by his keen perception and eye for detail. Wee would also like to think Salman Tarik Kureshi and Zaheer Choudhry for editing the book. Their suggestions and changes have added style and substance to the text.
