    Good day The Caribbean Writer enthusiasts!

    Indeed, the wait is almost over. The journal will be ready for mailing out on the 24th so, depending on your address, you could have it in hand before month’s end. Thanks so much for your continuing interest.

    Perhaps you have heard that Dr. Arnold Highfield, a Virgin Islands intellectual treasure has passed into the vast wonders of the spirit world. An adopted son of the soil, he dedicated his life to excavating the archives of Virgin Islands culture and history through a life time of writing, exploring, teaching and sharing his archival work and insights on the regional,local and world stage. His work has served as both segue and platform for researchers and writers. His productive life is a testimony to the great value he placed on Virgin Island-ness. Few can match his voluminous contributions. May he Rest In Peace.

    Dr. Highfield was an instructor of history at the then College of the Virgin Islands from 1969–72. In 1973–74, he became a teaching associate and the following year, 1974–75, he was a research associate at Ohio State University in the Department of Romance Languages. From 1976 until 2007 he taught as a Professor of Social Sciences and Linguistics at the University of the Virgin Islands, St. Croix Campus. During his tenure here, he taught courses in Virgin Islands History, Caribbean History, World History, Anthropology, Linguistics and Philosophy. He held the title of Scholar-in-Residence from 1995 until his retirement in 2007, at the University of the Virgin Islands, St. Croix Campus.

    Dr. Highfield was married to Shirley de Chabert Highfield of St. Croix. They have four children and four grandchildren.
    Our deepest condolences go out to his family.
