College inducts two new honorary fellows

Bermuda College has inducted two new honorary fellows, Glenn Fubler and Christopher Maybury.

Bermuda College has inducted two new honorary fellows.

Glenn Fubler and Christopher Maybury were recipients of the award because of their “far-reaching social activism”, the college said.

It also praised the men’s “extensive business and philanthropic endeavours”.

At the event both fellows accepted the traditional stoles and pins from the chairman of the Company of Honorary Fellows, Randolph Horton, who presided as master of ceremonies.

The Company of Honorary Fellows was first established in 1980 to recognise the “outstanding achievements of notable persons in the community”, with 103 people being given the recognition.

Mr Fubler attended the University of Miami and became the chairman of the United Black Students organisation in 1969.

The following year he became a member of the Black Beret Cadre in Bermuda, a movement protesting against British arms sales to apartheid South Africa.

During the 1970s Mr Fubler campaigned on a range of social justice causes, including the anti-hanging campaign.

In 1979, he co-founded the Bermuda Workers’ Socialist Party, and in 1981 was active in the general strike.

Mr Fubler then continued his activism and trade union campaigns.

The college stated that Mr Maybury “has an extensive business and philanthropic background”.

He served on the board of Marks and Spencer, and then became CEO of The Times and The Sunday Times of London.
