Gazette 1/5/1908 - It is with deep regret that we have to announce the death of Mr C.T. Fischer, Assistant District Commissioner, and an Assistant to the Secretary for Native Affairs, who died in Nairobi Hospital on 21st April from heart failure following on an attack of pneumonia. The deceased officer, who had previously spent some time in farming in the Kenya Province, was temporarily appointed in the latter part of 1906 to supervise the conditions of Native Labour in the Nairobi District and on the Uganda Railway. These duties he continued to perform up to the time of his death, having been confirmed in his Appointment as Assistant District Commissioner (detailed for service as an Assistant to the Secretary for Native Affairs) with effect from April 1st 1907. His death deprives the Protectorate of the service of an able and conscientious officer.
