Beverley David Pearson was an up-country born lad who grew up in Calcutta. Schooled as a boarder in Bangalore (Bishop Cotton) and graduated with a BA Hons degree from St. Xavier’s College in Calcutta. Started life as a school teacher in St James School and moved to The Statesman as a management trainee in ‘61. Married Verna Robinson the same year and in ‘65 migrated to London. Pursued a successful career in publishing but found England cold, crowded, cramped and expensive. Migrated again… to Sydney in ’82 where he and his family have settled very happily.
Bev has now retired having after 42 years of working but continues to work part time as a Workplace Trainer and Assessor specialising in Communications and Work Safety. He’s currently an executive member ( and Vice-President) of the Anglo-Indian Association of NSW.
Bev wrote and presented the now famous speech – History of Anglo-Indians at the Anglo-Indian Association of NSW Anniversary Dance in October of 2005 in Sydney, Australia. He was delighted by the standing ovation received but more satisfied to find the Anglo Indians audience all agreed on one thing: “you made us proud to be an Anglo Indian.”
