Roger Croston, a council member of the Royal Society of Asian Affairs, is an independent part time scholar who specializes in Westerners who travelled to Tibet before 1950. Since 1996 he has interviewed most of those still alive who witnessed the old Tibet, or their descendants, to research their collections of diaries, photographs and films. He has published numerous obituaries in journals and British national newspapers as this generation fades and has organized three audiences in 2008, (Oxford), 2009 (New York) and 2012 (London) for these ‘old hands’ and their families to meet the Dalai Lama in person. He has presented papers at various academic institutions, most recently at the 6th Beijing International Seminar on Tibetan Studies in August 2016.
