Shukran! Dr. Athol Yates

Although many of our members had unfortunately already left for the summer, a fair number were truly entertained by Dr. Athol Yates with his presentation on strange, illuminating and quirky stories from the 1970’s compiled from past UAE newspaper articles. Together with Mary Corrado’s contributions from her early memories of life in Abu Dhabi during that time, they provided a fascinating glimpse into the past, and many of the stories still resonate today.
