Grimble of the Gilberts

The people at the admirable Dalrymple resource The Skeptical Doctor have tracked down what may be the first published Dalrymple article (in the London magazine Spectator, 26th August 1983). The subject is Sir Arthur Grimble (1888-1956), who was a member of the Gilbert and Ellice Islands Administrative Service from 1914 to 1932 (Lands Commissioner, 1922-25; Resident Commissioner, 1926-32).
