A/V: UWI PROF WHO NURTURED CAVING IN JAMAICA

A/V: UWI PROF WHO NURTURED CAVING IN JAMAICA

Prof Ron Read was best known for his work in mathematics, at the fledgling University of the West Indies (UWI) and at the University of Waterloo in Canada. But the story his daughter Helen told her fellow UWI Mona Campus Kids, reuniting at the UWI Museum recently, was of the time when he spearheaded efforts to develop caving in Jamaica. These efforts led to the establishment of the Jamaica Caving Club and the linked University Caving Club, and to numerous muddy expeditions.
Check out Helen’s presentation, rooted in an unpublished memoir from her father:
