The Meaning of White

This chapter concerns the wider historical implications of the limitations upon the system of general school education meant for Eurasian and Domiciled-European children. It argues that, by the turn of the century, British education authorities became strongly attracted by an extraordinary idea of sending abroad problematic groups of domiciled children. The removal of domiciled children from impoverished families is the main focus of the chapter, which discusses in particular an orphanage-like institution called St Andrew’s Colonial Homes at Kalimpong. The educational model of the Homes, founded by the Scottish missionary John Graham, was often praised as the most effective in solving the Eurasian Question. The chapter analyses how this educational institution sought to discipline and train its pupils, while exploring the underlying ideologies of race and class under British imperialism. The various reports, essays, and letters published in the school journal, St. Andrew’s Colonial Homes Magazine, are the main primary sources.

Keywords:   St. Andrew’s Colonial Homes, John Graham, child removal, discipline and training, juvenile emigration, Eurasian Question, British Empire and Commonwealth
