Lee had a distinguished career with the Indian Civil Service, and was an expert on Western Himalaya, and Tibetan dialects. Was A.C. Kulu 1917-19 then 1923-24 and an eminant photographer of the area. Mentioned in" Kulu the end of the inhabited world" by Penelope Chetwode published by John Murry London as follows.
Acknowledgements:
Mr H. Lee Shuttleworth, I.C.S., was A.C. Kulu from 1917 to 1919 and again from 1923 to 1924, another passionate devotee of the Western Himalaya, who began his career at a time when the sketching phase was nearing its end and was being replaced by photography with those enormous plate cameras, each of which needed two porters to carry them and their appurtenances over the mountain ranges.
Mr Lee Shuttleworth always toured with his camera and now his magnificent collection of photographs of the Western Himalaya is in the possession of his widow, my friend Inez Shuttleworth, to whom I am much indebted for many things.
Sir Michael O'Dwyer who, as Lieutenant-Governor of the Punjab, was responsible for appointing Shuttleworth as A.C. Kulu in 1917, once said that one of his reasons for the appointment was the fact that the maiden name of Mrs Shuttleworth was MacGillicuddy of the Reeks, and I thought a young lady who at home was in the habit of running up MacGillicuddy's Reeks would equally be at home at 18,000 feet in the Himalayas. His belief proved wellfounded, for Inez accompanied her husband all over the Kulu sub-division, including the remote Tibetan border provinces of Lahul and Spiti, with their high passes up to 18,000 feet. In addition to the photographs, Inez lent me a bound volume containing her husband's collected articles and published lectures for which I can never be sufficiently grateful. After his retirement from the service Lee Shuttleworth was for twenty years a part-time lecturer in Tibetan dialects at the London School of Oriental Studies.

bullet  Research Notes:


In May 2016 a conference was convened by Yannick Laurent, archaeologist and Tibetologist of Wolfson College Oxford, titled "First International Conference on Spiti: Recovering the Past & Exploring the Present" The Spiti area is rich in Buddhist history, architecture and art, which deeply interested Lee Shuttleworth when he was AC Kulu early last century. Lee produced a large photographic record of the region, now held by the British Library, and became expert in the local languages.
