Other Information - People: Alex McKay mentions Humphreys in Tibet and the British Raj, 1997, Curzon Press, p. 126, "Within British India, Anglo-Indians, those of mixed parentage were often subject to greater prejudice than Indians and were excluded from several areas of governmnet employment. In Tibet, however, Anglo-Indians were preferred to Indians. ... In the 1940s, an Anglo-Indian Christian, Dr Humphreys and an Indian Christian, Captain M V Kurian, paved the way for a subsequent posting of Hindu Medical Officers to Gyantse." [KC 11/1/2006]
