The background of sociology overwhelmingly makes a speciality of 'the winners' from the classical 'canon' - Marx, Durkheim, and Weber - to contemporary so much celebrated sociologists.

Indians were recruited instead, largely because they were deemed to have had the appropriate medical training in institutions regarded as comparable to—although not equal to—those which Europeans had access to in their home countries. 98 The establishment of this first medical school (Calcutta Medical College) in 1835 was stimulated directly by the needs of the British government. 99 Naturally, the higher echelons of this service were staffed by European doctors, but it was realised, quite pragmatically, that a subordinate staff of native doctors, apothecaries, compounders, dressers, aides and was also needed to provide the infrastructural support fitting for a government medical service.

Traders who had come to the region to make their fortunes in the preceding centuries were now joined by a wider variety of middle-ranking professionals, such as administrators, clerks, teachers, skilled workers and a few university trained doctors, engineers and accountants. These were to be the early colonial servants of the East African administration, imported directly from the Colonial Service in India to staff all elements of the early tiers of the new administration. Johnston himself recognised that ‘[t]he intermediate role played by the Indian sepoy, non commissioned officer, surveyor, clerk, surgeon, botanical collector, trader and horticulturalist in all East Africa’ was a significant contribution towards securing British success in the region.

105 The first group of students admitted to the college included nine Christians (including Goans) and two Parsis. 106 As was typical of these colonial institutions, the first five Professors of the college were British graduates. 108 As the medical colleges, including the Grant Medical college, became affiliated to Universities the training of the subordinate medical staff was transferred to the more numerous medical schools established at regional centres such as Poona, Ahmadabad, Hyderabad and many others in the different regions of India.
