Biographical / Historical
A.V.S. (Andrew Van Slyke) Lochhead served as advisor on social services to the government of Trinidad and Tobago in the late 1950s. Born in the United Kingdom in 1911, he was Organising Lecturer and Tutor in Social Science at University College, Cardiff in Wales. He first came to Trinidad and Tobago in 1955 when the government invited him to undertake a study on social services in Trinidad and Tobago. This led to the publication of a report in 1956 entitled 'Administration of the Social Servies in Trinidad and Tobago with Special Reference to Co-ordination'. He was subsequently appointed on three-year contract as Advisor on Social Services.
