MacDonald, son of the British Prime Minister Ramsay MacDonald, "spent nine years of his own distingished political career in top posts in Southeast Asia. Among the territories under his administration was the state of Sarawak on the island of Borneo....He began a series of journeys up the great rivers, the natural roads of Sarawak, on ceremonial and social visits to the pagan tribes of the interior. He lived with the people in their long-houses, danced the native dances, sang their songs, complied with their drinking customs, and in every way possible joined their way of life."--From the dw.
