Article or Chapter TitleThe frontiers of Baluchistan
Record Number10294
Journal or Book TitleThe frontiers of Baluchistan: Travels on the borders of Persia and Afghanistan
Primary author or editorTate, George Passman
DescriptionThe Frontiers of Baluchistan contains excerpts from George Passman Tate's report on the exploration of the Baluchistan and Seistan provinces of Persia (presently Iran). Tate replaced a member on the McMahon Arbitration Commission as the irrigation specialist. Excerpts included past commission efforts and notable visits, such as Nasratabad, the capital city of Seistan, and the Parian river. Tate shares the history of the once famous Bandar-i-Kamal Khan, a market that was built by a Baluchi chief. Township structures are illustrated from the Kadkhuda, or mayor, to the Pagos, or agricultural associations, responsible for building weirs. Included is a map of the area studied by the McMahon commission.
