Eric Eustace Williams (1911–81), the main political figure of his time and the leader of Trinidad and Tobago's major political party, was instrumental in his country's achievement of independence in 1962; he was prime minister from 1961 until his death. His successor was George Michael Chambers (1928–1997). A.N.R. Robinson (b.1926) became prime minister in 1986. Notable writers include Samuel Selvon (1923–1994) and V.S. (Vidiadhur Surajprasad) Naipaul (b.1932).

I recommend Dr. Joseph Lennox Pawan who discovered that rabies was spread by rodents and worked on its cure. Also Anil Kokaram who was given an Oscar in 2007 for his work in digital effects.

Winifred Atwell (born 1910 or 1914 Tunapuna, Trinidad and Tobago – 28 February 1983) was a classically-trained pianist who enjoyed great popularity in Britain and Australia from the 1950s with a series of boogie woogie and ragtime hits, including "Black and White Rag" which for two decades was theme tune for BBCtv's first snooker programme when colour TV launched in Britain in 1969.
