The Young Colonials: A Social History of Education in Trinidad and Tobago, 1834-1939

By Carl C. Campbell | Go to book overview

Acknowledgements

I am naturally indebted to several persons all of whom cannot be conveniently mentioned here. As long ago as 1968 one of my students, a cerain Mr Marcelle, loaned me some rare copies of the Teachers Herald and the Teachers Journal. These are stimulating publications, further volumes of which I never encountered until 1985. The full recovery and preservation of these books in a secure repository such as the University of the West Indies Library at St Augustine would be a valuable service. Another student at St Augustine, an ex-headteacher, made a gift of a pile of dusty Annual Reports of the Director of Education which came into his possession during a long career in the classroom. At that time these publications were not as readily available as at present.

Although I did not have to rely on Dr C. V. Gocking's praiseworthy collection and republication of education documents, including the Annual Reports of the Director of Education, I wish to hail this achievement as a public service of the first order to the cultural heritage of Trinidad and Tobago. Some of these documents were in danger of permanent disappearance from the nation.

I have also benefited from interviews with a few retired teachers, of whom I may mention Mr Thornhill, Mr Hamilton Maurice and Dr C. V. Gocking. The errors are my responsibility.

I wish to acknowledge that some materials in this book have already appeared in altered form in my book Colony and Nation: A Short History of Education in Trinidad and Tobago ( 1992).
