Deceased 03-12-1948 (54 years old)
Jan Hofmeyr was a South African Politician for the United Party, who firmly believed in racial equality in the pre-apartheid era. This, which was his strength to many, was in the eyes of a section of his own party his weakness: they were not willing to go so far, and after the electoral defeat of the United Party in 1948 many of them virtually repudiated him. He was a constant target for the increasingly jingoistic Afrikaans press, which ridiculed his dreams of a non-racial society.
