STATEMENT OF THE GOVERNOR
I was shocked and saddened to learn of the
sudden and untimely passing of Albert Stanley
Mr. Hugh worked for several years with the
Government of the Virgin Islands first, in 1963,
with the Department of Social Welfare and later
with the Division of Personnel where he served
as Assistant Director and Director. He left the
Government service in 1972 to seek a seat in the
Legislature of the Virgin Islands.
Mi. Hugh was active in political affairs in
this community and in matters related to the
welfare of non-citizen residents of the Virgin
Islands. For the latter he worked tirelessly
to improve their well-being and his efforts did
not go unnoticed.
On behalf of the people of the Virgin Islands,
I extend heartfelt sympathy and condolence to the
members of the family of the late Albert Stanley

MESSAGE FROM THE LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR
It is with shock and sadness that I
learned of the sudden passing of my friend
ALBERT STANLEY HUGH.
Albert was a friend and counsellor to
many; a man who took pleasure and pride in
helping those in need of guidance and
assistance. He was a man who once he gave
his word to help, would work untiringly
to do what he promised to do; a quality
possessed by too few in this or any
Albert Stanley Hugh served the
Virgin Islands community as Director of Personnel
and in other capacities both in government and
the private sector, with distinction and courage.
I join his family, friends and acquaintances
in mourning his loss and in the sincere hope that
his soul may rest peace

PRESIDENT OF THE 14TH LEGISLATURE OF THE VIRGIN ISLANDS
Thousands of Virgin Islanders have good cause to
mourn the death of Albert Stanley Hugh, their lives and
security infinitely improved by his living and working
A born sociologist, who also earned a Master's Degree
in that field, Mr. Hugh was imbued with enormous sympathy
for the human condition. As government Personnel Director
he noted first-hand the tensions suffered by government
employees as they labored in a highly politicized atmosphere.
True to his compassionate nature he was struck by the need
forreform and it was Mr. Hugh who persuaded the then Governor
Ralph H. Paiewonsky to initiate a study to determinate the
feasibility of establishing a Classified Personnel System and,
thereby, provide an element of security in a bureaucracy
dominated by the "spoils system."
Although he was an introvert and did not readily display
his emotions, friends remember his jubilation when the Study
vindicated his beliefs and the Personnel Classified System
was formally adopted.
The course of his life, his work, his associations, his
friendships was marked by a sense of commitment, by sincerity
and honesty. Staff members recall that no matter how busy he
might be Mr. Hugh would drop the business at hand and listen
to a troubled associate. In the words of one, "He would
listen, listen and truly listen. There are not many people
who really hear what others are trying to say."
Added to that wonderful quality, I know of another --
that he regarded it as a sacred trust never to betray a
Clearly, Mr. Hugh was an unsung hero who, in his quiet
way, brought comfort to scores of people and was instrumental
in bringing job security to thousands.
Not only does his family, to whom I extend my heartfelt
sympathy, suffer a grievous loss, but the Virgin Islands as
a whole is made poorer by the passing of Mr. Albert Stanley Hugh

MESSAGE FROM SENATOR ELMO 0. ROEBUCK
I have known Albert Stanley Hugh, a long-time resident of the
Virgin Islands. for many years. At times shy and reserved, at other
times friendly and outgoing, he was always dedicated to the welfare
of those with whom he worked and served.
In the 1960's his far-sighted vision led to the implementation
of an effective personnel system for the Government of the Virgin
Islands. After serving as Director of Personnel he entered private
industry as Director of Personnel for the West Indian Company.
He was widely respected for his abilities, his keen appreciation
for the foibles and virtues of this fellow-man, and above all, his
fair-mindedness. He and I spent many hours together on difficult
problems, with his advice always judicious and sound.
I share the grief of the community at the untimely passing of
Albert Stanley Hugh. He will be sorely missed.
