Research Question | The Jewish Homeland Project in British East Africa

I am starting to research plans to create a Jewish homeland in the highlands of British East Africa, which were aborted in 1905. Has anyone come across mention of this in any missionary archives?

Did any missionaries oppose the plan?  Is anyone else working on this? (I know about Robert Weisbord's 1968 book, and the work of Adam Rovner.). I'm particularly interested in Jewish women's voices, which seem to be absent in the written record.

In the 1960s and 1970s, complaints about a “Jewish literary mafia” were everywhere.
