Robert Stewart is Retiring

After thirty-six years as a member of the Trinity faculty, Bob Stewart has decided that he will be retiring at the end of the current academic year. Bob began his teaching career in 1968 as a Jesuit at Boston College High School. After a year there he moved to Jamaica, where he taught history at St. George’s College, Campion College, and at the University of the West Indies, where he completed a doctoral program in Caribbean history. He published his research in his 1992 book on religion and emancipation in Jamaica. He left Jamaica in 1978 and began teaching at Trinity in the 1978-79 academic year. Bob is trading the joyful noise of middle schoolers for the quiet of the oaks that guard his home in New Jersey. He plans to tend his garden, catch up with his reading, and write another book. We thank him for his dedicated service to the School and wish him the best in his retirement.
