Notes on the Geography of Nigeria: Ibadan: Photo 8
Captain Ross was Resident-in-Perpetuity. OK: not really, but he was Resident from 1906 to 1931, which is almost the same thing. Most of that time he actually spent 35 miles to the north, at Oyo. His successor wrote of him that "he infused discipline and a spirit of progress to such an extent that it will be many years before his name fades out of the Yoruba mind." It would be interesting to learn how many years it took; I suspect not too many.
