May 2001: extract from Len Edwards' ST.V newsletter:
Several newspapers, companies and individuals, congratulated Dr. CECIL CYRUS for 40 years of medical service to the people of St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Dr. Cyrus decided to become a doctor as a 7 year old boy in Layou. He noticed that the district doctor came to Layou, and saw those people who could pay him a shilling, and then drove away in his white car, leaving the " rest of us", the medical needy, to the district nurse. He decided then and there that he would become a doctor, and return home to serve his people. SO HE HAS. Dr Cyrus migrated to the United Kingdom in 1950 where he studied medicine and qualified as a surgeon on May 18, 1961, obtaining a BSC from Queen's College and FRCS, which qualified him as a surgeon. He lectured at Queen's College in Belfast for a short while, before moving on to obtain another FRCS at Edinburgh University.
September: Dr Cyrus has retired.
