Gustav Venter is a doctoral candidate and part-time lecturer in the History Department at Stellenbosch University. Gustav Venter visited the Centre  from 22nd to 24the June 2015. His doctoral thesis explores the history of so-called “white” professional football in South Africa. He visited the Alan Paton Centre in order to examine the papers of the Football Association of Natal and KwaZulu. He summarised his visit as follows: “My specific interest in the collection revolved around the fact that it contains some documentation relating to the National Professional Soccer League (NPSL). During the late 1970s this professional league – containing the likes of South African glamour sides Kaizer Chiefs and Orlando Pirates – absorbed a number of teams from the former National Football League (NFL), a whites-only league which disbanded after its 1977 season. In terms of my visit I would like to extend a big thank you to the staff of the Alan Paton Centre for their assistance and hospitality. It was a privilege to visit the centre and I would certainly recommend any researcher interested in related fields to do the same.”
