Default At an unveiling of Photographs?.Rev.A J Foster

Rev. Canon R.S. de Saram (1932-1959)

Canon R.S. de Saram was Warden of S. Thomas?College from 1932 to 1959.When the College buildings at Mt. Lavinia were commandeered as a military hospital in 1942, he made the decision to start a school at Gurutalawa under the Headmastership of Dr. R.L. Hayman. In 1944 the branch of the school at Peradeniya was closed, and during 1945 the Warden came into residence at Gurutalawa, staying in the house now occupied byMr. F.L. Amerasinghe. He left here when the College buildings at Mt. Laviniawere handed back, and S.Thomas? restarted life once again in its own buildings at the beginning of 1946. Inasking you, Sir, to unveil this photograph, I would pay tribute to one of our distinguished Wardens, whose integrity and courage shine out of a life dedicated to S. Thomas? College.
