Dadabhai Naoroji

Dadabhai Naoroji (1825-1917) was an Indian nationalist and Liberal member for Central Finsbury, 1892-95 – the first Asian to be elected to the House of Commons. Dinyar Patel completed a PhD on Naoroji from Harvard University in 2015, and in 2016 he published a co-edited volume of Naoroji’s selected correspondence (Dadabhai Naoroji: Selected Private Papers, Oxford University Press). Suggestions for archival sources, or privately-held sources, are very welcome. Patel is revising his dissertation into a biography of Naoroji.
