Memorable Manitobans: M. V. Naidu (?-2016)

Political scientist.

In 1965, he came to Brandon College to teach political science. He also hosted a weekly television program. Well-known for his research on international diplomacy and peace studies, he became editor of the journal Peace Research in 1984, serving until 2006, a year after his retirement as Professor Emeritus. He died in his late 80s, of cancer, on 27 February 2016.
