Intro
Humphrey J. Fisher was born September 20, 1933, in Dunedin, New Zealand. He recently died in 2018, he had retired in 2001. He attended Deep Springs Junior College, 1950-52; Harvard University, B.A. (magna cum laude), 1955; Oxford University, D.Phil., 1959. Religion: Quaker. CAREER: University of London, School of Oriental and African Studies, London, England, 1952—, began as lecturer, became reader in African history, became emeritus professor of history. His first book on Ahmadiyya was published in 1960. Humphrey was way ahead of his time for the 1960s and 70s in the way he chose to bring up his children. He would work several days a week from our home in Hampton, south-west London, to be there for his four sons. He never missed a concert, sports match or other event. When I started school, he managed his commute so that he could wave as I crossed the railway bridge on my way to school. In 1986 he moved to Newchurch in the Welsh borders. Long an active Quaker, he became ordained in the (Anglican) Church in Wales by training at a Catholic college, and preached at Presbyterian churches. He also continued his academic career, teaching Islam and its history and drawing together teachers and students of different religions. At St Mary’s church, Newchurch, he provided tea-making facilities for walkers on Offa’s Dyke path, drawing thousands of visitors into the church. He also instituted the annual Kilvert pilgrimage, now in its 20th year, linking the four rural churches he served as a non-stipendiary minister.

Ahmadi’s co-operated with him
It’s important to note this. This wasn’t meant to be anti-Ahmadiyya. However, Ahmadi’s are calling it anti these days, since it exposes how Ahmadiyya worked with the British government to exploit african people and their resources. Later on Trimingham quoted it extensively.
