Michael Goldberg Collection


A dentist since 1972, Dr. Michael Goldberg migrated to Trinidad from the United States in 1998. He has worked as a dentist with the non-governmental organization, Servol, at its Forres Park Life Centre in south Trinidad. This collection was compiled by Dr. Goldberg over a ten-year period while residing in Upstate New York in the United States. The collection, which has been arranged by subject, spans the period 1872-1995 and highlights the scenes, social life and customs of Trinidad and Tobago. It contains mainly albums of postcards from Trinidad and Tobago along with some souvenir booklets, photographs and glass lantern slides. Many of these postcards contain messages and are postmarked. There are also a few postcards from Belize. Researchers browsing this collection would see images of the early East Indian migrants to Trinidad; historical sites in Port of Spain including government buildings, homes, schools, churches and temples as well sites in Tobago.


Funding for this project was generously provided by Mrs. Irma E. Goldstraw, former librarian at the UWI Campus Libraries at St. Augustine
