[TRINIDAD] Dr. Eric Eustace Williams Collection
The url listed below will lead you to the Eric Eustace Williams Collection, presented by the Florida Palmm Projec in collaboration with the University of the West Indies.
It's introductions explains the collection:
"The Eric Eustace Williams Collection is both a bibliography and a growing library of works by and about Dr. Williams, the first Prime Minister of the Trinidad and Tobago and often called the "Father of the Nation". Dr. Williams' importance as an historic figure in the Caribbean, indeed in North America and within the British Commonwealth, however, is as much as a philosopher as a politician. The works collected here should provide the researcher with the raw materials to study how he married his academic and political pursuits and how the character of the man fostered independence throughout the Caribbean.
The works listed and collected here include Dr. William's many monographs and essays, together with his political speeches and other published works. Also included here is a characterization of Dr. Williams' political life as reported by the "Trinidad Guardian". Digitization of Dr. Williams' works is on-going and currently compelled by the work of volunteers. The creators of this collection trust, as this effort continues, that researchers will avail themselves of Dr. Williams' works, collected by and available through Inter-Library Loan from libraries through out the Caribbean, Canada, the United Kingdom, and the United States. In particular, we hope that researchers will extend their support to the Eric Williams Memorial Collection on the St. Augustine, Trinidad campus of the University of the West Indies."
Please read Dr. Williams' biography too. It will make anyone from Trinidad swell with pride.
