Professor Sir Roy Marshall
On Tuesday, we released a piece about Professor Sir Roy Marshall and his time in Hull and East Yorkshire. Marshall was born in Barbados in 1920. He accomplished many achievements throughout his life including being awarded the Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire (CBE) in the Queen’s New Year’s Honours list in 1968. Between 1979 and 1985 Marshall was the Vice Chancellor at Hull University becoming one of the leading academics of African descent in this region.
