April 15, 1994 Sabah In History
The London Times (15.4.1994) - JOHN MACARTNEY was one of the last links between the Chartered Company administration of North Borneo, in an era redolent of early mercantile activity in the East Indies, and the creation of modern Malaysia. His thirty-year career began in the romantically archaic and benevolent paternalism of the company administration of the prewar years, when the price of rubber was the main consideration. He was to see this ethos shattered by the Japanese onslaught and, after a period of internment, participated in the postwar rebuilding process which involved the establishment, first, of a Crown Colony and then led to the emergence of Sabah as a state within the Malaysian federation in 1963.
