H-Net network on Caribbean Studies.



H-Caribbean is an H-Net network sponsored by the Association of Caribbean Historians. This network seeks to overcome the linguistic, political, and geographic fragmentation that has traditionally characterized the field and region; provide access to debates and discussions on Caribbean studies; act as a resource to academics teaching and researching in associated fields; and reinforce the growing awareness of the region as an important and rich area for further research and study.

Roosevelt "Rosie" Douglas' Family?

Dear Colleagues,

I am currently writing a short biographical piece on Roosevelt Douglas, the activist and Prime Minister of Dominica, and I was wondering if anyone had any information about whether or not he was married. If he was, to who and are there any relevant dates (such as marriage and divorce)?

Thank you very much for your assistance.
