Tuesday 25 January 2011  The Saint Lucia National Archives  now boasts of having enriched its archival holdings with facts and information on six of the island's  eminent  personalities.


Chairperson of the Saint Lucia Memory of the World Committee Margot  Thomas, says the newly launched   National Memory of the World Register  helps take the island's history out of oblivion, and makes the learning of local history a more interesting pursuit.


“Just as we are trying  to ensure that the Pitons  remains  on the World Heritage list, we have to ensure that  the papers we have inscribed in the register are protected and that they remain in our national register. I would like to appeal  to our individuals, to businesses that have papers, to call us at the archives, we'll fund  a safe home for them.”


She said Sir Arthur Lewis, Honourable Derek Walcott, Roderick Walcott. John H. Pilgrim, Andre Du Boulay, John Golds, and Lafour  de la Tour are among those  whose contributions to Saint Lucia 's development will remain well preserved for generations to come.


The six are now being featured  at a special exhibition in honour of Nobel Laureate Week which is currently on at the Saint Lucia National Archives offices at Vigie, Castries.


The  National Memory of the World Register Launching ceremony took place under the patronage of Her Excellency, Governor General Dame Pearlette Louisy.
