Professor Emeritus, Rawle Farley, died at midnight on Friday night. The distinguished economist was 88.
Born in Guyana and educated at the University of London, Professor Farley had a long and illustrious career as an educator. He held numerous posts in Universities both in the Caribbean and the continental US. Three years ago, he retired from teaching at the SUNY Brockport University.
When the University of the West Indies celebrated its 50th anniversary, Farley was honoured for his service to the institution.
Farley was invited to the July 23 ceremonies at the Mona Campus, Jamaica, by UWI Vice Chancellor Alistair McIntyre
In the citation for the award, Farley was commended as “one of the early Caribbean men who blazed the trail for the UWI through his wide and varied contributions to its outreach activities.”
At UWI he also served as Director of the University’s Extra Mural Services.
An avid chess player, Professor Farley indulged his love for the game here in Guyana and even went so far as to serve on the Executive of the Guyana Chess Federation.
