About this title:

Synopsis: Pioneers in Nation-Building in a Caribbean Mini-State by Sir Rupert John was written in 1979 in “an attempt to consider in one small volume the lives of twenty two Vincentians and the contributions they made during the earlier years of the twentieth century to the political, economic, social or cultural development of their native land”. This republication, thirty years later, should serve to remind the older generation, and to educate today’s generation of Vincentians about the sterling contributions made by the persons profiled in this book. A Biographical Foreword on Sir Rupert is included in this republication nearly thirteen years after his death which attests to our conviction that his own contribution to nation-building in his homeland and elsewhere deserves the telling of his own story.

About the Author: SIR RUPERT GODFREY JOHN received his early education in St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Early in his working life, he taught at the secondary level in St. Vincent and St. Kitts. He later studied law in England, practiced in St. Vincent and subsequently served as magistrate and Attorney General in Grenada. He joined the United Nations in 1962 and was a senior professional in the UN’s Human Rights Division. His stay at the United Nations was marked by several important assignments , one of which was a mission to Nigeria during the civil war there. Rupert John returned to St. Vincent in 1970 as that country’s first native Governor and remained in that office for seven years. After retirement from that post, he was for some time a Special Fellow and Consultant to the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR). Among his publications is Racial Discrimination and its Elimination (1981), also published under UNITAR auspices. Sir Rupert died in 1996
