To many people in East Africa the name of Clement Gillman is chiefly associated with one of the peaks of Africa's highest mountain, Kilimanjaro. To the student of geography he is perhaps best known for his maps of the population and of the vegetation-types of Tanganyika. Gillman's contribution to the elucidation of the character of the East African environment and of the problems posed by that environment was, however, far wider and deeper than this. In the course of reading and research on many topics within the field of the geography of East Africa one frequently finds notes, articles, reviews and letters emanating from his fertile mind, and it seems appropriate, almost twenty years after his death, to collect together a bibliography of his principal publications together with a short account of his life and work. 1.
