J.D. du Toit
As a student he initially did translations, wrote short stories and - according to Ludwig Binge (1969), even some plays. While at school he wrote a short piece called Di Twé Susters under his early pseudonym Jaduto. ** In the 1920s he apparently advised Hendrik Hanekom against going on tour as a professional, considering it a desecration of the Afrikaans culture to perform for money. (Hanekom had written to ask “Totius” for a play).
