Before Federation, I lived in Fife Avenue, Nkana, then in the Bush at Kansanshi. When Northern Rhodesia joined the Federation, we returned to Nkana and moved into 136 Geddes Street, across from Riverain Primary School.|
My dad was Horace "Sam" Cooper (now deceased), and worked for Rhokana. My mum, Chris, played golf; later to become Rhodesia women's national champion when the family lived at Salisbury during the 1970's. I did not; I was attending university in California.
After completing uni, I emigrated to Australia in 1972 to live on the waterfront at Balmain in Sydney. In the mid-1980's, I worked and lived in central London for a Canadian computer firm. I have been an online Help author (technical writer), specialising in computer-aided design (CAD) and 3d graphic modelling and design since 1987.
I started creating this website in 1995 and completed in 1996. I never realised that it would become what it has! It was just a lark attempt to get proficient with HTML and to perhaps as a "shot in the dark" find some long lost friends!
Without Craig, Arthur and Heather helping, I would've sadly closed the GNR down some years ago. My sincere thanks to these people.
I had lived in the United States for a long time (only because of family and work obligations, not because of choice), but more happily now, I live at Amsterdam in The Netherlands.
There are lots of photos of my family in various copies of the Rhokana Review.
