Alister Hughes, Doctor of Laws. . .

The Fourth of July is a period when it’s worth thinking about patriotism, which has been so badly abused in the USA in recent years.

 One of the bravest and most patriotic people I ever knew was Alister Hughes . . .

 Margaret Hughes, widow of Alister Hughes, journalist of Grenada, has recently shared with us the two files showing a picture of the young Alister, and the Citation from the University of the West Indies, when Alister was awarded the Doctor of Laws in November of 1990.

 The attached message and picture have also been placed on the Grenada History web site , that Alister and Margaret worked to set up nearly a decade ago. In a few more months we hope to be able to add links to the archive of The GRENADA NEWSLETTER that are being converted by the Digital Library of the Caribbean, and the publication of Alister’s posthumous memoir. (That will certainly be interesting!.)
