In 1994 Tim Goetze submitted a 250-page Master of Arts (History) thesis with the above title to the University of Stellenbosch. Copies are lodged in the South African library, Cape Town, in various other libraries and in one or two museums (eg Prince Albert). Goetze says that his father-in-law, Mervyn Radford, a civil engineer who was professor and Head of the Department of Agricultural Engineering at Fort Hare University for 14 years, inspired him to tackle the project because of his (Radford's) fascination with and awe for Thomas Bain's work.
