August 5: Queen’s College started and Burnham died in the same month and…

first_imgDear Editor,Reading does enlighten us about a great lot, and I was just recently perusing a British Guiana Queen’s College Magazine dated 1944-45, and it just dawned on me that the institution will be celebrating 174 years of existence on August 5, 2018. It’s the same institution that the late President L.F.S Burnham attended, and he died on August 5, 1985.What a coincidence of August 5?August 5, 1844: the institution opened its doors at the Colony House with 15 pupils enrolled, and the original name was ‘Queen’s College Grammar School.’Rev. W. Hamilton and Rev. Webber were the tutors employed during the opening stages; and in 1845, the institution moved to Main Street with 33 pupils on roll.August 14, 1848: it was incorporated; September 1854, it was moved to Carmichael Street; and in 1876, the new name was given as ‘Queen’s College.’Easter 1918: the institution was moved to the old orphanage in Brickdam, and the school library was started. In 1937, Thomas Lands location was presented to Queen’s College.Where was Colony House?Where in Main Street was Queen’s College once housed?Where in Carmichael Street was the institution once located?Where in Brickdam was the old orphanage?The above data was extracted from the magazine in question, which I have attached for your respective readership’s viewing. Anyone is welcome to make any correction from the above.Yours faithfully,T .PembertonTour Guide/Photographerlast_img read more
