Quevedo, Raymond, 1892-1962Alternative names
Raymond Quevedo, the son of a Trinidadian mother and a Venezuelan father, was educated at St. Mary's College. After leaving school he continued to educate himself by reading the literary classics. He later became a calypsonian, Atilla the Hun, who used the literary grandeur of the classics for his calypsoes. In 1946 he entered politics, was President-General of the Trinidad Labour Party and won a seat on the Port of Spain City Council. He effectively merged his two roles as calypsonian and politician.
