E14 Farewell OFC 2020 1979 & Thoughtful tireless IN THE ‘70s, I worked with many industries introducing computer services – none like JN with Oliver Clarke. I once asked why he included the doormen in JN’s staff retreat. His simple and logical answer was, “He’s the person that hears the customers’ genuine after-service opinion.” He taught me “objectivity and principle demands fearlessness”, while sharing his decision to go to The Gleaner. By then I’d grown to appreciate how his genius of a mind worked. Thoughtful and tireless, he loved Jamaica and knew well the value of the fourth estate in democracy.
