February 2018

The year was 1985. Queen Elizabeth II, formally known as the Visitor to The UWI according to Article Six of the 1972 Royal Charter, was paying a visit to the Campus, and the red carpet was laid out for her to exercise her Royal right to “inspect the University, its buildings, laboratories and general work, equipment and also the examination, teaching and other activities of the University.”

It was the year when the transition was made for Acting Principal Maxwell Richards to become Principal of the St. Augustine Campus.

A rather slender looking Principal Richards is at her side, while immediately behind them from left was the first President of the Republic, Sir Ellis Clarke, and the Vice-Chancellor of The UWI, Aston Zachariah Preston, who held the position from 1974, until his death in 1986.
