A distinguished economist and public servant

Dear Editor, Clarence Frederick Ellis, CCH, 80, is deeply mourned. He was a distinguished West Indian economist and public servant whose service was confined not only to Guyana but also to the Caribbean, particularly as Alternate Executive Director for the Commonwealth Caribbean on the Boards of Directors of the World Bank and the Inter-American Development Bank, and as an Economic Adviser/Consultant attached to the then newly established  Eastern Caribbean Central Bank (ECCB), St Kitts/ Nevis, where he contributed to the strengthening of the Bank’s research department.
