(5) Coco Majid

Kuala Lumpur

Coco recommended me to read on the history of Kuala Lumpur. I thought that was odd as I was not writing on Kuala Lumpur history but history of medicine, focusing on the early Malay doctors.

He asked me to call him at home for his copy of a book on Kuala Lumpur history was at home.

I dared myself to call his house and we spoke. He gave me the title of a book and its author's name.

Coco referred me to "A History of Kuala Lumpur 1856-1939" by JM Gullick. He wanted me to have some idea about early developments in Kuala Lumpur.
