  • 1886: Menulis laporan etnografi mengenai budaya orang asli di daerahnya ketika itu: “Two Of the lengthier 1886 reports, written by G .C. Bellamy for Kuala Langat and Campbell for Ulu Langat, show a scholarly inclination. … Campbell's report was mostly a collection of ethnographic details on marriage customs, games, methods of obtaining food and word lists. … Physical descriptions Of the people made up small sections in both reports, showing scholarly thinking that tried to find physical correlations to already noted social facts. … In Campbell's physical descriptions of the “races” of Sakai in his district, he focused on height, considered directly proportional to degree of civilization. The Orang Laut (sea people), identified as “the best-made race” and “the best-looking set”, were also the tallest of the three groups he reported on, while the Orang Bukit (hill people) were the shortest group and displayed the most “primitive” characteristics.” (Sandra Khor Manickam, 2015: "Taming the Wild: Aborigines and Racial Knowledge in Colonial Malaya", m.s.130).
