With a career spanning more than half a century, Sir Hugh Worrell Springer has solidified his place in Barbadian, and Caribbean history, contributing remarkably to Barbadian public education policy and politics. From his beginnings as an administrator, Sir Hugh rose in the arena of Barbadian public service to achieve one of his country’s highest honours, becoming the third native Governor General, and later a National Hero.

His public service took him through many organizations in many positions, as organizer and first General Secretary of the Barbados Workers Union; First Registrar of the University College of the West Indies; member of parliament for the Barbados Progressive League; a Member of the House of Assembly; General Secretary of the Barbados Labour Party; Acting Governor and Commander-in-Chief of Barbados, as well as serving as the Commonwealth Assistant Secretary-General and Secretary-General of the Association of Commonwealth Universities. Sir Hugh was credited as playing a major part in the success of the Progressive League, as historian F.A. Hoyos writes, “Hugh Springer’s organising genius at this stage was of the first importance to the labour movement…”

In Truly a Gentleman: The Life and Times of Sir Hugh Worrell Springer, author Kean Springer goes behind the looming public image to show Sir Hugh the man. Through his letters, published works, addresses, and testimonials from his family, friends and colleagues, Kean Springer paints an elegant portrait of this great son of Barbados.
