Collection Description

Biographical Note

Little is known concerning the author. Thacker served with his wife as Methodist missionaries to the Old Umtali District of the Rhodesia Conference from 1945 to 1948.

Scope and Content Note

This carbon copy manuscript consists of three hundred and fifty-five typewritten pages with handwritten editing marks. It examines the ethical implications of Communism and Democracy, as advocated by the U.S.S.R. and the United States during the Cold War period. Rejecting both ideologies, Thacker recommends a Christian approach to living in which the individual enters into a personal fellowship with God.
