Hammy Edwards Back to Gallery Back to Main Page


Hamilton Edwards (or "Hammy" as he was always called) was a close friend from Mission days, and he played a key role in getting my research going when I returned to do anthropology. Son of the famous Captain Irving Edwards and a Teduray mother of the Tenorio family, Hammy and I had started the Tiruray Cooperative Association together in 1962-63 to be a complex of cooperatives which enabled acculturated Teduray to help other less sophisticated Teduray adjust to peasant life when their forest homes were destroyed by loggers. Hammy lent us a piece of land on his Mirab farm where we could build a little house for Audrey and the boys to live in while I was away in Figel. (See Chapter 1)
