Dedication: Victor C. Quesnel

While the Centenary Celebrations pay tribute to the foresight of the founding fathers, who have all passed away, we cannot underestimate the role of those members who revived the club and survived to mark this event. As such, Victor's contribution to the club is immeasurable. Through his efforts the club has been functioning continuously since his return to Trinidad in 1953 when he offered his services as Honorary Secretary, in which post he served from 1954 to 1959 and again in 1980 - 1981. Subsequently, he was President from 1986 to 1988. Almost single handedly he oversaw the production of 12 of the 17 Issues of the journal from 1956 onwards, to which he has contributed over twenty articles and remains totally committed, through his conviction that the journal has a vital role to play in recording and disseminating sound scientific data on the flora and fauna of our islands.
