Oriens Ex Occidente Lux: UCWI Pelican Donald J. Harris

As the light rises from the west so do the pelicans of the University (College) of the West Indies, glowing beyond geographical borders for all the world to see. Moulded and nurtured to profound intellectual maturity and equipped with the knowledge beyond typical academic proficiency. As Jamaicans rally with USA vice presidential candidate Kamala Harris, we would like to pause and reflect on the early years of her father, Professor emeritus Donald J. Harris through this feature article on him from the UCWI 1960 Pelican Annual.
