T. BASWELL DONALDSON MEMORIAL LECTURE
Mr. Timothy Baswell Donaldson was the first Governor of the Central Bank of the Bahamas, having led the organisation through its transition from the Bahamas Monetary Authority. Through the Central Bank, Mr. Donaldson was instrumental in establishing the Bahamas Institute of Bankers (now the Bahamas Institute of Financial Services), and he contributed as a past Chairman of the College (now University) of the Bahamas.
