R.G. Casey and the Bengal Famine
R.G. Casey's governorship of Bengal (1944-1946) was a short, wartime appointment in a province troubled by famine, the threat of invasion, and rising communalism prior to its partition in 1947.
Drawing on the diaries of Casey and his wife Maie, Associate Professor of South Asian and World History at the University of New South Wales Kama Maclean considers Casey's attempts to ameliorate the effects of famine, which included working with Australian civil society organisations who lobbied to raise funds for famine relief.
