Upper Guildhall, KES School


The former head of Economics at KES tells the fascinating story of the life of the former KES schoolboy and leading judge in the India of the British Empire. A life split between two contrasting worlds: Stratford where he was born and spent his formative years, and his professional legal career spent in India in the service of the Raj, where he gained a reputation for being scrupulous and fair in the administration of justice. He’ll explore the bravery Garlick showed in the face of nationalist violence aimed at British officials, which broke out in the late 1920s, and his tragic assassination in his own court by a terrorist in 1931, which caused outrage and was condemned in both India and England.
