Vivian Solomon’s serious collecting fervor took off with the acquisition of a first edition of a Marthinus Versfeld classic. A Capetonian, he cut his academic teeth under the inimitable hard-hitting Professor Ludwig Lachmann at the University of the Witwatersrand when he joined the Economic History Department there in 1970. His thesis on The South African Shipping Question 1886 to 1914 was published by the brief-lived Historical Publications Society. He brought together his rather esoteric interest in shipping with his consuming love of the Cape when, in the course of his Cape explorations, he met the aged Miss Kathleen Murray of Elgin who gave him a trove of letters written by her uncle Percy Alport Molteno, the shipping magnate. There followed the task of deciphering the letters, which are over-written to save paper, and with extremely irregular hand- writing, and these were then published by the van Riebeeck Society as Selections from the Correspondence of Percy Alport Molteno 1892-1914. When he observed that, at Wits, his students were staying the same age while he was getting older, he looked around for something else to do and joined the Department of Finance, Pretoria, as its Chief Director, ending his career there. He had a passion for the small towns of the Cape and throughout South Africa, and made a unique collection of books celebrating the Churches of these towns. As he would have wished, he died of a heart attack while climbing, another of his loves, on Table Mountain in 1999. A history of rock-climbing in the Western Cape he wrote will appear shortly on the website of the Mountain Club of South Africa. A talk given by Dr Vivian Solomon on The Hands Uppers to The SA Military History Society can be accessed onhttp://samilitaryhistory.org/vol031vs.html
