At the outset of World War I, the Germans surrendered their colony in Togoland (part of Ghana and the Republic of Togo) to British and French colonial troops. After the war, the League of Nations awarded France and Great Britain a mandate over the former colony, with the eastern two-thirds under the control of the French. French Togo was administered by a commissioner assisted by a consultative executive council of officers. The annual reports of the French administration discuss such matters as slavery, legislation, economic measures, public hygiene, native peoples, financial matters, and demographic statistics.

The early reports on the British trusteeship of Togoland were issued by the governor of the Gold Coast. In 1919 Great Britain gained control of the eastern section of the former German protectorate of Togo (now part of Ghana and the Republic of Togo). In 1922 the League of Nations confirmed a mandate for Great Britain over British Togoland. British Togoland eventually joined with the Gold Coast to form the independent nation of Ghana. The British Colonial Office reports cover administrative concerns, such as international relations, finance, taxation, trade statistics, the court system, police, prisons, defense, arms, social conditions, labor, religion, education, public health, land tenure, forestry, agriculture, and mines.
