Raffles That's My Name

Mary Ellen Forbes McMillen

Thomas Stamford Raffles was born into a very ordinary family but rose to become a knight of the realm. Among his achievements were the founding of modern Singapore and the establishment of the London Zoo, the world's first scientific zoo. A proud Briton, he came to appreciate deeply the people and culture of Southeast Asia. He was relentless in his opposition to slavery, wherever it existed.
Here we learn of his successes and his failures, not only in the making of the British Empire, but also in offering the world new ways of seeing.
