History

Born in England, Huddleston studied at Christ Church, Oxford University (1927-1931) before enrolling at Wells Theological College, taking his vows in 1941. He then ministered in townships in South Africa between 1943 and 1956. During the following years he became involved in protests alongside Nelson Mandela and continued to campaign and speak out against the apartheid regime after this, gaining awards from the ANC among others for his work.

In 1959 he addressed the founding meeting of the Anti-Apartheid Movement in London and in 1961 he was appointed Vice-President of the AAM, a position he held until 1981.

Huddelston often visited Scotland and was involved in key events in the SC AAM campaign, including: speaking at the 1988 Glasgow Green rally that was followed by a march down to London as part of the Freedom at 70 campaign, presenting Indres Naidoo with a giant key to symbolically open Mandela's cell door at the same rally, and speaking at the Sechaba Conference in Glasgow in 1990.
