Percival Wright Greathead
     Percival Wright Greathead was born on 30 August 1904 in Johannesburg, Transvaal, South Africa.1,2 He was the son of Henry Percival Greathead and Emily Elizabeth Stanton. Percy visited Dallas in USA and was the guest of John T Orr President of Texas Farm Bureau. He spoke about South Africa rapidly developing into a cotton producing country. His visit was recorded in the Dallas Morning News of 1 October 1924. He took back to South Africa ten pounds of two different grades of Texas cotton seed.3 Percival travelled on the ship Tahiti leaving Sydney, Australia, arriving in San Francisco in April 1929 on bound for Nelspruit.4 He married Atherlie Beryl Broster, daughter of Athol Gordon Broster and Margaret Keen Gibson, on 7 August 1935 in Knysna, Cape Province, South Africa.5 He was a farmer and factory owner. Percival died on 8 March 1982 in Knysna, Cape Province, South Africa, aged 77.5 His body was cremated and his ashes scattered in the in Crocodile River, Barclay Vale, Transvaal, South Africa.5 Margaret Elizabeth Ogilvie née Greathead wrote: My father PERCIVAL WRIGHT (BUNNY) GREATHEAD was a remarkable man. In spite of the fact that he was dyslexic at a time when no-one even knew the word, and was blind in one eye, due to a childhood accident, his achievements were many and varied. He studied citrus at UCLA in California and was a pioneer of insecticide spraying of citrus in South Africa. At the age of 21 he was appointed as a director of the Citrus Exchange - a post he held for 43 years. In 1943 he was recalled from Egypt by Colonel Denys Reitz in order to produce vegetables for the troops. These did not often reach the ships which had been diverted, so in 1943 he solved the problem by starting a dehydration factory to preserve the
vegetables. In 1954 he started a tomato processing factory at Hoedspruit to supply the fish canners on the West coast with tomato paste. He had an uncanny ability to draw contours without using a Theodolite and was an ingenious designer of machinery, without the benefit of an engineering training. He was the first agri-businessman to promote black people to management positions during the height of the apartheid years. His recognition as a humanitarian was finally acknowledged in the early 1960's when he was inaugurated as a Chief of the area in which we lived by two tribes - the Shangaans and the Swazis. This high honour was endorsed by King Sabuza the Second of Swaziland. In spite of all his amazing abilities, he was a modest man who loved his family and was in turn loved and admired by thousands. He was a keen member of the MOTHS - I quote from the June 1982 edition of "The Natal Link" - "Bunny was a great guy - quiet and unassuming, he had the soul of a giant and a heart almost too big for his body." He retired to Knysna in 1978 after recovering from a severe stroke and died there on 8 March 1982. His body was cremated and his ashes scattered in the Crocodile River. There were about a thousand people present to take their last farewell of their Chief, at a very moving and beautiful ceremony.5
