He will return to Jamaica early in
August and will remain until near the
end of the year.
PRINCIPAL OF THE UNIVERSITY
COLLEGE OF THE WEST INDIES.
Dr. W. W. GRAVE, Registrar of the
University of Cambridge, has accepted
an invitation to become Principal of
the University College of the West
Indies in succession to Sir THOMAS
TAYLOR. Dr. GRAVE has a distinguished
academic record. He gained first class
honours in the Modern and Medieval
Language Tripos in 1922 and 1924, was
elected Fellow of Emmanual College in
1926, and was a Tutor of the Oollege
from 1936 to 1940. In 1936 he was
appointed University Lecturer in Span-
ish, and during the war he became ad-
ministrative officer in the Ministry of
Labour and National Service. Dr. GRAVE
has been Registrary since 1943, and his
experience of university administration
will be of great value to the University
College of the West Indies. Indeed,
the University College may be consi-
dered fortunate in having secured the
services of one who has occupied so
important a position in university life
in the United Kingdom.
Dr. GRAVE is expected to take up his
appointment early in the coming year.
Dr. and Mrs. GRAVE and their two
daughters look forward to living and
working'in the West Indies.
