Three photographs from the A.III film (exposures 6,7,8) [1998.341.521,.523 & .525] were evidently taken just before the one published (exposure 9) as Plate II in Evans-Pritchard's article "The Dance" Africa: Journal of the International African Institute , Vol.1, No.4 (Oct., 1928) p.456, with the caption "Part of the Crowd". This article drew upon his first fieldwork expedition of 1927. [Chris Morton 11/10/2005]

Other Information:
The spelling of the name as Ndoruma on the print reverse is somewhat corroborated by reference to the Kingdom of Ndoruma in Witchcraft, Oracles and Magic Among the Azande (OUP 1937), which, although not refering to this man but to King Ndoruma son of Ezo, is probably the same name.
