The Lucien Rattray Resource Center a.k.a. The Library is named in honour of a former chairman of the Caribbean Maritime Institute.
Mr. Rattray served the CMI board for several years. He gave many dedicated years of service to the logistics and transport sectors in Jamaica. He was a former president of the Airports Authority of Jamaica, general manager at the Port Authority of Jamaica from 1973 to 1991, and president of the Jamaica Promotions Corporation (JAMPRO) from 1994 to 1995.
The Centre was born out of kind donations of material and funding from several local and international partners including the International Maritime Organization (IMO).
