CHURCHES AT UWI MONA

Within a couple of years of the University (College) of the West Indies starting up in 1948, officials of the Anglican and Catholic communities were proposing the establishment of separate church facilities on the Mona campus site where the regional university was founded in Jamaica. In 1951, the college was already leaning towards establishing a single non-denominational place of worship. This would come to pass with the completion of the re-located and re-purposed Georgian rum storehouse, dedicated in 1960 and now known widely as the University Chapel.

Saving Image & Sound

How can we save our audio-visual heritage and ensure that what we capture now will last well into the future? That was the question put to a range of information stakeholders by the University of the West Indies Archives on UNESCO’s World Day for Audiovisual Heritage, and the responses left no doubt of the relevance of the question or the challenges it raised!

When (UWI Museum Curator) Suzanne Francis-Brown put out a call on Facebook for memorabilia of Dr. Martin Luther King’s visit to Jamaica in 1965, I was happy to share our original copy of a beautiful photo of the UWI service, with my father sitting directly behind Dr. King.
