Item description for Uwi Cave Hill: Forty Years a Celebration by Henry Fraser...

UWI Cave Hill: 40 Years - A Celebration is the exciting success story of the youngest campus of the University of the West Indies. From the humblest of beginnings in the abandoned hall of a Caribbean trade fair, on a patch of virgin, reclaimed land at the then new Deep Water Harbour site at Bridgetown, Barbados, it moved to a dramatic escarpment at The Mount, just two miles north of the city - a site chosen from the air by the prime minister the late Errol Barrow himself, flying his own small plane! Today, this once spacious site is full and expanding still, "overflowing" as it were, down the hill. This book captures much of the story. The photographic essay of aerial shots by Wille Alleyne, doyen of photographers in Barbados, provides rich and revealing panoramas of the growth of the campus, with the recently upgraded and dedicated 3Ws Oval as its centrepiece. The early chapters contain outstanding archival photos of place and people who transformed the vision into academic success. We see the founding fathers and the first students, and the young faculty such as Richard Allsopp, Sir Keith Hunte and Woodville Marshall. They led the way and can now enjoy the satisfaction of a job well done. Perhaps the richest pages are those of people and events. Cave Hill has been a ferment of ideas, of education, writing, research and publishing; of political protest and intellectual discourse; and of student energies - in drama, dance, debate, dominoes and sports of all kinds. All are beautifully captured here. And the final chapter, with new plans, new projects and new buildings, points the way to even more major developments. The text includes summaries of the history of faculties, schools, centres and other units on the campus, with a brief running text and picture captions that illuminate the mission and the magic of the Cave Hill story. The editors dedicate this book of celebration to "all students, staff and alumni of the UWI, Cave Hill - past, present and future - and to all those communities we serve". And they urge everyone to "give this work of the heart to all your friends, to spread the mission of UWI, Cave Hill, and to encourage loyalty and generosity in building our campus and our communities".
