The academic community is poorer for the passing of Caesar and Eversley

Dear Editor,

I wish to convey my condolences to the family and friends of the late John Caesar, Senior Lecturer, University of Guyana who passed away recently. The academic community, in particular the Natural Sciences Faculty, is certainly poorer for his passing as he was known to be a very dedicated and committed academic and someone who pursued his task with passion and diligence.

Even though not Guyanese by birth, he took an active interest in the country’s development and served on a number of boards and committees, including the Guyana Forestry Commission where he served as Chairman up to the time of his death.

I happen to know him at a personal level when I served as a member of the University Council and on the Appointments Committee some years ago. I was always impressed with his modesty and the unassuming manner in which he conducted himself and his sense of loyalty and commitment not only to the University of Guyana but to the country as a whole.

May I also express my condolences to the relatives and friends of the late Professor Calvin Eversley who also passed away after a brief illness. Like the late John Caesar, he also served the university community, in particular the Law Faculty with great commitment and dedication.

Yours faithfully,
Hydar Ally
