In The Crisis 1944, Benson is praised for work done in support of colonial African people. Called "a brilliant young Englishman in the permnanet secretariat of the ILO"; he has "amassed and published carefully documented reports on conditions in the mines, racial restrictions imposed upon the natives, problems of discriminatory taxes and wages. Based on careful research, his reports served as a directive in shaping remedial proposals to the recent Conference."
