Arthur Theodore Culwick, MBE, was born in 1905 and educated at Dean Close School, Cheltenham, and Brasenose College, Oxford. In 1927 he applied for a post with the British Colonial Administrative Service in Tanganyika and spent 3 terms at Oxford University taking the Tropical African Services (TAS) course (later called the Colonial Administrative Service course). On passing the examination he married Geraldine Mary Sheppard in October 1928. Shortly afterwards he sailed for Tanganyika as an Administrative Cadet and was posted to Singida, Central Province. He subsequently became a District Officer in Kiberege, in the Ulanga Valley, Eastern Province, home of the Wabena tribe, where he worked for 6 years before being transferred to the district of Bukoba.
