  1. Dr Fraser Mustard was an enlightened individual. His research work in early childhood development was very extensive and original. His Highness was very much appreciative of his work in the field of early childhood development and had emphasized that this be given a priority by the Chancellor’s Commission .in the development plans for the AKU. I had the pleasure of meeting him on several ocassions during his many visits to the AKU campus, He was a great man and his contribution to AKU as a member of the Boarf of Trustees was tremandous. He will be sadly missed. May his soul rest in eternal peace. Mansur
