Biography

Albert van der Sandt Centlivres (13 January 1887–19 September 1966) was the Chief Justice of South Africa from 1950 to 1957.
Born in Cape Town, Centlivres studied Classics at the South African College (now the University of Cape Town) and at Law at New College, Oxford, where he was a Rhodes Scholar. He was called to the bar by the Middle Temple in 1910 and took silk in 1927. In 1935 he was appointed a judge of the Cape Provincial Division, and in 1939 he became a Judge of Appeal in the Appellate Division, South Africa's highest court.
Centlivres was Chancellor of the University of Cape Town from 1950 until his death in 1966. The Centlivres Building on the university's upper campus is named after him.
