Press Release

Published 1st August 2019, 1:20pm

Good day,

It grieves me to learn of the passing of the first Governor of the Cayman Islands, Mr. Athelstan Charles Ethelwulf Long.

It was during his tenure in 1971 that the title was changed from Administrator to Governor. He served as Administrator from 1968 until 1971 and as Governor from 1971 to 1972.

After he left his post as Governor, Mr. Long served as chairman of International Management Group, chairman of the Public Service Commission and deputy chairman of the Public Service Pension Board.

Mr. Long was a dear friend to the people of the Cayman Islands and served these Islands well.

He will certainly be missed.

My condolences go out to his family and friends.
