A gentle mien. A kindly face and a dignified carriage – these are the hallmark of Chief (Mrs.) Gladys Aduke Vaughan. And so it should be. She was born into greatness but she does not have to flaunt it. She is the product of the union of two illustrious families in Ibadan.
Her mother was the daughter of the famous Pa. Samson Okeowo, a distinguished and well-to-do Ijebu immigrant who made Ibadan his home and contributed to its growth in many ways. Chief (Mrs.) Vaughan’s mother had the privilege of a good education in her days. Apart from Pa. Okeowo being the father of other distinguished sons and daughters whose descendants continue to make significant input into Ibadan’s development, it is on record that he offered his house at Alekuso as the first home for the first secondary school in Ibadan, the famous Ibadan Grammer School, which has produced many of the illustrious citizens and leaders of this country. Chief (Mrs.) Vaughan’s father was from the famous Egunjenmi family; he was himself a successful cocoa farmer and at different times businessman, a politician; he was reported to be the first young man in the Itutaba Oje neighbourhood to own a car. Although a Muslim by birth, he also attended St. Peter’s Church, Aremo.
When Chief (Mrs.) Vaughan was born therefore in 1924, she landed into the home of enlightened parents who were already exposed to the new western civilization with its emphasis on education; while not forgetting their own culture, they embraced this new culture in such a way that it left a positive mark on their lives. It is not a surprise therefore that they decided to send their daughter to school, and to no other place than Kudeti Girls’ School. For most of what is now South Western Nigeria, it was the foremost school for girls, established by the counterpart, CMS Girl’s School, in Lagos. The United Missionary College, the famous women’s teacher-training college, would have been her next port of call but an attack of mumps at the time of the college’s admission made it impossible and she later made her way to Mount Carmel School in Lagos. There she still had the rudiments of the training necessary for a teacher; thereafter she taught for a few years in schools like Ake Primary School in Abeokuta and St. Stephen’s School, Inalende in Ibadan.
Then came marriage, she met and got married to Pa. Chief A. A. Vaughan in 1944. Like the marriage of her own parents, it was a union of two distinguished families and of two young people with similar backgrounds. Papa Vaughan’s family of Gbenla Quarters, Ibadan with connections in Ogbagi Akoko, in Lagos and in Oje Alafara is a Christian; it is on record that a member of the family, Reverend Vaughan, was a famous Catechist, one of the priest who facilitated the spread of Christianity in Ibadan. Pa Vaughan also had a good education like the young men of his days, such as Pa. James A. Ayorinde and others under the leadership of their senior, Pa. S. A. Oloko, he had joined the Ministry of Agriculture and contributed to the development of Moor Plantation. That union produced children who are now making a mark in their different professions in this country and abroad.
But Chief (Mrs.) Vaughan was not done with education and the general acquisition of knowledge, she left for Britain in 1958 with approval of her husband in search of the golden fleece at a time when many of her mates would have been sitting back, relaxing at home. It was in London, at 61 Brackenbury Road, the home of the Morohundiyas, that many of us, Mrs. Bisi Akpata, Justice Atinuke Ige and I, Bolanle Awe, had the privilege of observing her at close quarters and learning very salutary lessons about humility and at the same time the display of tremendous dignity; she did not think it was beneath her to slug it out like any other student; she appeared unmindful of the inconveniences and difficulties of a student’s life in Britain, hers was always a smiling face, cheerful and unco
