Former Director of the Latin American Centre, Sir Raymond Carr, has passed away
From the Warden of St Antony's College, Prof Margaret Macmillan:
It is with great sadness that I have to announce the death of Sir Raymond Carr, our much respected and admired second Warden (1968 – 1987), and an Honorary Fellow of this College.
Sir Raymond, who was born in 1919, had a distinguished academic career. Educated at Christ Church, Oxford, he went on to lecture at University College London in 1945. He has been, amongst many things, a Fellow of All Souls, a Fellow of New College, Director of the Latin American Centre, a Distinguished Professor of Boston University, and the King Juan Carlos Professor of Spanish History at New York University. His many honours include the Grand Cross of the Order of Alfonso el Sablo and the Order of Infante Dom Henrique. He was made a Knight Bachelor in the 1987 New Year’s Honours List. As Warden of this College he oversaw its growth and development into a major centre of regional and interdisciplinary studies.
