Message from the President
This year, Bishop’s University will
welcome a record number of
freshman, making our overall student
enrolment the largest ever. To help
meet the growing needs, a new
residence housing 165 students has
been built. Both are major steps in
Bishop’s evolution.
In starting my term as President
of the Alumni Association, I look
forward to working with and being
guided by the competent staff in the
Alumni and Development Office. It
will also be a pleasure to serve on
committees with faculty and
community volunteers who have a
keen interest in the continued success
of the University and the “Bishop’s
One of my first challenges is to
represent alumni on the Search
Committee for the new Principal. This
task is daunting, given the stature and
success of the incumbent, Mrs. Janyne
Hodder. The selection is of utmost
importance, as the chosen individual
will play an important role in
directing the University in the near
future and continuing to lay the
foundation for the long-term viability
and prominence of Bishop’s.
Another challenge is to encourage
even greater alumni participation in
supporting and raising funds for the
University. Part of this goal can be
achieved by soliciting more
participation of our branches and their
members and establishing even
greater coordination of initiatives and
programs. Greater participation will
also allow alumni to better network,
keeping in contact with old friends
and making new ones.
One of the initiatives alumni have
been asked to support is the new
Gaiter Club. This programme has
been developed to encourage
excellence in our student-athletes and
our athletic teams. The funds raised
will allow Bishop’s to be more
competitive in recruiting studentathletes and planning achievable longterm goals.
Other programmes will be
addressed in the future, but for now I
and the Alumni National Committee
will endeavour to keep you informed
and involved so that our University
will remain strong.

Can education save Iraq?
Dr. Andrew Johnson is
part of a group of
academics working to
convince the world
that it can.
(l-r) Tareq Ismael (University of Calgary and
Eastern Mediterranean University) Andrew
Johnson (Bishop’s University), Les MacDonald
(Social Sciences and Humanities Research
Council), Gwen Power (Public Lending Right
Commission) are members of the Planning
Committee to establish the International
University of Baghdad.
What better way for
Canada to help rebuild Iraq
than to rebuild the
educational infrastructure?
Canadian governments over
the last century have
considered education and
health, which ensure the
intellectual and physical wellbeing of citizens, essential to
generate a prosperous society.
am working with visionaries
who are very talented and highly
idealistic,” says Dr. Andrew
Johnson, who is part of a group of
university professors working to
establish the International University of
Baghdad. Dr. Johnson of the
Department of Political Studies at
Bishop’s, is Chair of Liaison for the
Planning Committee. A Steering
Committee, co-chaired by Tareq Ismael
of the University of Calgary and
Raymond William Baker from Trinity
College in Hartford, Conn., with
scholars from Egypt, Jordan, Germany,
the United Kingdom and the U.S., is
spearheading the effort.
The group is urging Canada to
provide $25 million in seed money for
the project, which will cost $250-$350
million. “Coming from a small
university whose total annual operating
budget is less than $25 million, I
gasped when I first heard the figure,”
says Dr. Johnson. “But that is a small
portion of the $300 million the
Canadian government promised to help
rebuild Iraq.” They have already
received a $50,000 “Presidential Grant
for Innovation and Development” from
the Social Sciences and Humanities
Research Council (SSHRC).
Dr. Johnson sees Canada as the
ideal leader for the project: “What
better way for Canada to help rebuild
Iraq than to rebuild the educational
infrastructure? Canadian governments
over the last century have considered
education and health, which ensure the
intellectual and physical well-being of
citizens, essential to generate a
prosperous society.”
In establishing the university, the
group plans to repatriate Iraqi
intellectuals who are living around the
world. It is estimated that 500-1,000
Iraqi university professors live in
Jordan alone, and 700-1,000 in Europe
and North America.
“Iraq is part of a region often
called The Fertile Crescent, which
describes not only the land but also the
rich intellectual tradition,” claims Dr.
Johnson. “Iraq has been a centre of
science and learning in the Islamic
world for several millennia. The last 30
years of brutal dictatorship were an
exception. Our plan is not to impose
Western style notions on Iraq but to
assist them with the infrastructure to
release the diversity that has always
been part of that regional civilization.”
The university will offer graduate
programs in priority fields (education,
public policy and justice, business,
health and social work, media studies
and information technologies,
environment and energy). It will also
offer a liberal arts undergraduate
education and advanced research in
areas such as world cultures, global
studies, Islamic civilization studies,
human rights and democracy, energy
and environment and public policy. The
language of instruction will be English.
The group has already recruited
help from impressive people: HRH
Prince el-Hassan Bin Talal of Jordan
will chair the Board of Trustees, and
Betty Williams, Irish Nobel Peace Prize
Laureate, Ed Broadbent, former leader
of NDP, Richard Falk, Emeritus
Professor of International Law at
Princeton University and John Polanyi,
winner of the Nobel Prize in Chemistry
and Professor of Chemistry at
University of Toronto, have agreed to
serve as trustees.
Dr. Johnson gives Bishop’s credit
for his participation in the project. “A
little money invested in research can go
a long way.” He received travel funds
from our Senate Research Committee
to present a paper on Canada’s relations
with the Middle East at a conference in
Cyprus. During the conference he was
invited to join the founding group.
“Faculty research can have
consequences which are rewarding not
only for the academic world but for
larger communities.”
“I feel privileged to be part of this
important project,” says Dr. Johnson.
“It’s exciting to be at the genesis of
something which could be of great
value not only for young people in Iraq
but for Canada and Canadian
academics who have partnership roles
to perform with colleagues in that part
of the world.”
Fall 2003 Bishop’s University News • 2
A message from the President of Corporation
he amount of volunteer work done at Bishop’s
is little talked about and perhaps that’s the way
most volunteers want it, including the
Chancellor, members of Corporation, faculty, senior
management group, staff and students. My rough
guess is that it amounts to at least 10,000 hours a
year, but the figure may be low.
It’s a healthy sign that at Bishop’s there is never
a shortage of volunteers, even though in the case of
many Corporation members, it means a trek of about
320 km. from Montreal and back to add to the three
or four hours at the committee table. The motivation
for most volunteers on and off campus is simply to
be involved with an institution they admire and want
to help in its governance.
Corporation members chair every governing
committee on campus, though there are usually at
least two faculty, a student and a staff member on
these committees, like the Committee on Life at the
University, chaired by Peter Dunn ’66; the Finance
Committee, chaired by Sam Elkas; the Building
Committee, chaired by Philip Webster; the Human
Resources Committee, chaired by Suzanne Sevigny
’70; and the Computer Technology Committee,
chaired by Elaine Roper ’79 who lives in Toronto.
And that doesn’t cover them all.
Many of those chairs and others like Tim
Bradley ’71 also serve on the Executive Committee.
There are non-graduate volunteers we are lucky
enough to attract to committees, including the
Executive Committee, like Sam Elkas, a former
minister of transport in Quebec, and Dr. Arvind
Joshi, CEO of St. Mary’s Hospital in Montreal. The
chair of the Executive Committee, Joan Stadelman
’66, I suspect has served on more committees than
any member of Corporation.
Professor of Geography, Dr. Curt Rose, is one of
many faculty members who has devoted a huge
amount of time on key committees plus chairing ad
In 2001, 21% of men aged 25 and over
were university graduates (up from 17%
in 1991). The growth among women
was even greater, from 14% in 1991 to
20% in 2001.

Bishop’s reflects this trend in our fulltime student enrolment:
1992-93: 49.2% women, 50.8% men
2002-03: 53.7% women, 46.3% men
hoc teams in such difficult areas like ombudsperson
and harassment. Among the staff, Al Ansell, Sandra
Gallup-Palme and David Young are heavy
contributors of their time.
This leads me to tell you that the most important
committee the university assembles every decade has
started its work. During the summer, it piled up more
than 30 hours of meetings. The heavy-duty
assignment is to begin the search for a new Principal
to succeed Janyne Hodder when she completes her
mandate on 31 July 2004.
It is an eleven-person committee made up
experienced and thoughtful people. Most of Bishop’s
many constituencies are represented with four faculty
(Professors Cathy Beauchamp, Harvey White, Lorne
Nelson and Sylvie Bequet) one staff member (David
Young), an alumni representative (Peter Davidson
’77), a senior manager (Bruce Stevenson ’76, Dean
of Students), a senior academic (Dr. Anton De Man,
Dean of Social Sciences), and two Corporation
members (myself and Philip Matthews, the Vice
President, who is chairing the committee).
We have started early to give ourselves time to
find the best. The job description will be advertised
in selected newspapers this fall but it will also be put
on our website www.ubishops.ca. We hope to begin
the important process of interviewing candidates by
This is an invitation. If anyone knows someone
who you think would be a suitable candidate, please
get in contact with one of the Search Committee
members through the University Secretary, Heather
Thorne at [email protected] or at 1-819-8229600 ext. 2210. We would like to hear from you. We
know it will be a formidable job to find someone to
replace Janyne Hodder. Help us if you can and wish
us luck.

Bishop’s makes its mark
So what if it’s the smallest university in Canada? Bishop’s
University in the Eastern Townships hamlet of Lennoxville,
enrolment 1900, can credibly boast that as far away as
Auckland, New Zealand, it might be Canada’s best-known
institution of higher learning.
As globalization infiltrated Canadian life over the past
decade, it brought new competition for a small school like
Bishop’s, particularly its undergraduate-only Business school,
which must compete for attention with larger schools that often
benefit from the reflected prestige of associated MBA programs.
On the other hand, notes Bill Robson, Dean of the Williams
School of Business & Economics at Bishop’s, it became evident
that globalization also brought new opportunities to promote
international exchanges, to focus in international business and
to tap a big global pool of potential students.
Today, 16 per cent of Bishop’s first-year students are
foreign, tying McGill for the highest proportion in Canada. And
since the Williams School joined a big global network of
Business schools, its 550 Business students have been
immersed in exchange programs and competitions with
counterparts from all over the world. “It’s far more exciting
than becoming known as an accounting school or a marketing
school,” says Robson, acknowledging that, in any case, the
Williams School simply doesn’t have the faculty numbers to
develop such a specialty.
Thus it was that a team of four students from Bangkok’s
Chulalongkorn University found themselves in Lennoxville,
explaining to three Bishop’s judges how they would overcome
obstacles to international expansion faced by an Australian
A few minutes later, in trooped the French team, four
students from the École Supérieure de Commerce in Rennes
who had been given the same case.
The French delivered a polished presentation, but the Thai
students won for the detailed marketing strategy and financial
projections they had produced in the four hours that teams had
to work on the case.
All told, Bishop’s had eight teams engaged in a round-robin
case competition. Others came from universities in Auckland,
Helsinki, Dublin, St. John’s, Nfld., Cedar Falls, Iowa and, of
course, Bishop’s itself.
Schools must
compete to enter this case
competition, held
annually by the Network
of International Business
Schools, or NIBS, a
grouping of more than 50
university business
programs from around
the world. Since only

round-robin, others are
eliminated in an earlier,
written competition.
Case competitions — which have proliferated as an
important arena for business schools to show off students’
abilities — level the playing field, enabling even a small school
to build a big reputation. Both prospective students and
employers pay attention to who wins.
Doing well “enhances the quality of the school and puts us
on the map,” believes Robson, not to mention the job offers that
usually come to members of a successful team.
Certainly the NIBS competition has been good for
Bishop’s. Although it is the smallest school in the network, it
has won twice in the past four years. The winning team gets to
host the following year’s competition, so its victory in New
Zealand last year — heavily covered by Auckland newspapers
and television — brought the contest to Lennoxville.
The winner of this year’s competition was Memorial
University of Newfoundland.
Bishop’s was eliminated in the semi-final round.

in living costs and expenditures. This is
approximately 20% higher than the current

by accommodation (15%), transportation

n 7 June 2003, 455 students (287 women, 168 men)
graduated from Bishop’s University. Below are a
number of facts on the Class of ’03:
122 graduates (52 women, 70 men)
93 graduates (79 women, 14 men)
101 graduates (74 women, 27 men)
Natural Sciences
and Mathematics: 59 graduates (27 women, 32 men)
Social Sciences
80 graduates (55 women, 25 men)
Bishop’s conferred honorary degrees (Doctor of Civil Law
honoris causa) on three distinguished individuals.
Jean-Luc Grégoire served Bishop’s University for 32
years and was Vice-Principal Administration and Finance for
five Principals. He contributed significantly to the growth,
development and financial health of Bishop’s with unflappable
good humour and unfailing common sense. He gained the
respect of his counterparts in sister universities and in
government, ensuring Bishop’s was heard where decisions were
made. He is a committed volunteer with his church and other
community activities.
Raymond C. Setlakwe’49 C.M. is President and CEO of
A. Setlakwe Ltd., a retail chain based in Thetford Mines. He is
an active and dedicated contributor to his community: member
of the Thetford Mines Hospital Foundation and Bishop’s
University Foundation, former member of the Corporation of
Bishop’s and of the Université de Sherbrooke and is a Director
of the Research Fund of the Montreal Heart Institute. He is a
Member of the Order of Canada and was appointed to the
Canadian Senate in 2000 by Prime Minister Jean Chrétien.
Pamela D. Wallin led a distinguished career as a
broadcaster and journalist. She held senior positions at the
Toronto Star, CBC Radio and CTE, where she was the first
woman appointed Ottawa Bureau Chief. In 1995 she established
her independent company, through which she hosted and
produced Pamela Wallin’s Talk TV. She received numerous
awards for her achievements in journalism and honorary
degrees from six universities. In June 2002, Ms. Wallin was
appointed Canadian Consul General to New York City.
Dr. Brian A. Jenkins was named Professor Emeritus of
History, Dr. Ivan M. Myhul Professor Emeritus of Political
Studies and Dr. Garry V. Retzleff Professor Emeritus of

On average, university graduates earn
considerably more than either college or trade and
vocational program graduates.
These higher salaries eventually pay dividends
to the public purse. In 1999, university graduates
made up just over 15% of the population but paid
close to 35% of the nation’s income tax while
receiving just 8% of government transfers.
In contrast, people with less than a high school
education made up 25% of the population in 1999
but paid just over 10% of all income tax and
received over 40% of government transfers.

some of my customers will have 65% of their management staff
retire in the next four years and there is no strategy to deal with
the impending losses of knowledge. For individuals, challenges
are gaps in their talent relevant to what organizations need, the
necessity of taking responsibility for ongoing learning and
development, and balancing work and family.”

work. When she and Adrian adopted Kate from China, the

Catherine has also volunteered for Gems of Hope, an
organization that provides microfinancing for women-based
microenterprises in the developing world. “Women collectives
in small communities form a bank, which is funded by us. The
collectives administer small loans to help, for instance, a
woman who owns a rickshaw in India or ragpickers in Vietnam.
The collective oversees the loan repayments, so the women are
responsible to each other. The project is successful because it
builds capacity in the community and is not charity.”
Catherine’s next project is to start a new business which
will offer a mentoring programme for women executives. If she
plans it with her usual energy, enthusiasm and humanity, it’s
bound to be innovative and exciting.
Chase away the winter blahs
Heather Stevenson Speck ’91 & Shani Doucet ’93 share their secret for enjoying the snow
harness. Most kids don’t get on a chairlift for two, three or
often seven weeks.
It’s great to see kids who can barely walk go flying down
a hill. If they’re not skiing, they play together in the snow and
form great friendships with other kids. Many, depending on
their disability, have graduated and become assistants and
instructors themselves. One instructor was born with spinal
bifida and has very little control over his lower limbs. He skis
with outriggers (crutches with the modified skis on the
bottom) and a ski bra to help keep his tips from crossing. He
is now a Level 3 instructor and skis everywhere, including
challenging mountains such as Whistler.
Students and instructors of Track 3.
Shani Doucet ’93 is lying in the snow (right).
e want to share with our fellow alumni some
wonderful experiences we’ve had since leaving the
hallowed halls of Bishop’s University. Funny thing
is, we’ve seen each other several times, but discovered only
this past winter we both attended Bishop’s around the same
time and didn’t realize it !
For the last few winters, we have been volunteering as ski
instructors for the Ontario Track 3 Ski Association for the
Disabled. This non-profit organization specializes in teaching
physically and mentally challenged kids to downhill ski. It’s
been a rewarding experience for both of us.
Track 3 started in 1972 by a group of doctors who
believed young people who had lost limbs to accidents or
disease might benefit by exploring a new and exciting activity
to rediscover their strength and rebuild their self-esteem and
confidence. Since the doctors were all skiers, they chose
skiing. The name Track 3 comes from the tracks left in the
snow — tracks from one ski and two outriggers (enhanced
crutches with ski blades on the bottom) — and it stuck.
Today the organization has grown to over 400 volunteers:
ski instructors, ski technicians, support staff and office staff.
Students have been expanded to those with autism, brain
injuries, and developmental delays. Skiers use a variety of
equipment such as mono skis, bi-skis, and sit skis, which are
specifically designed for those who have little to no use of
their legs due to injury, disease or birth defects.
Heather Stephenson Speck ’91
I have been a volunteer for seven years. Recently I
achieved my Level 1 from the Canadian Ski Instructor’s
Alliance and will work on my Level 2 this winter. (When I
first started here, I actually didn’t ski that well, but have
improved tremendously.)
One of my most memorable students was an autistic child
who had never been on skis before and who, within one day,
was able to go on a chairlift and ski down a hill with a
Shani Doucet ’93
I have been a volunteer for the past four years and am
currently a Level 2 ski instructor with Track 3 and a Level 1
ski instructor with the Canadian Ski Instructors’ Alliance. The
Track 3 program is addictive. I went for one day with my
roommate and here I am four years later.
It’s amazing to see the change in some of these kids. One
of my students, Melanie, has one leg. She learned to ski in
Track 3 and qualified for her high school ski team. She is now
an instructor with Track 3. Carly, an autistic and
developmentally delayed child, was determined to ski black
diamond (expert) trails and did so in her second year.
The achievements at Track 3 extend beyond the ski
slopes. Students can now participate in their school’s ski day,
and sometimes our instructors take a day off work to
accompany their students on these outings. Skiing gives
students a boost of confidence. They feel they can do anything
once they can ski down the hill. One student who lost part of
his leg to cancer not only skis, but horseback rides and is
goalie for his hockey team. Parents, of course, are thrilled
with their children’s transformation.
Through this program, we have met new friends, renewed
some old, and had the most wonderful and rewarding
experience in our skiing careers. And it doesn’t stop when the
snow melts. There are plenty of spring, summer and fall
activities such as golf tournaments, the annual snow ball, frog
races, pub nights etc. We both look forward to next season.
Our students keep us on our toes through the winter with their
crazy antics and enthusiasm. It certainly chases away the
winter blahs.
If you are interested in learning more about this
wonderful organization and perhaps even consider becoming a
volunteer, please feel free to contact us or the Track 3 office
or visit the website (www.track3.org).
We look forward to hearing from you or seeing you on
the slopes in 2004!

from Montreal. The
Gagnons presented the
Art Collection Committee with several series of stone cut prints
by Montreal artist Stanley Lewis (1930- ).
Lewis is a well known Canadian sculptor who studied at
the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (with Arthur Lismer),
Instituto Allende in Mexico, Atelier of Maestro V. Gambacciani
in Italy and Ein Hod Artist’s Colony in Israel. He has exhibited
and taught at various institutions all over the world, including
the McGill University School of Architecture and Saidye
Bronfman Centre of Montreal. Frequently called “the Canadian
pioneer of multi-colour stone cut prints,” Lewis studied the
Inuit technique of stone cut prints up north, using marble
instead of soap stone.
Mr. and Mrs. Gagnon are art lovers and collectors from
Montreal. Their principle wish is to have Lewis’ art known and
appreciated by as many people as possible. Three of Stanley
Lewis’ prints are on display in the Library beside the circulation
desk. The Bishop’s Art Collection Committee and the Bishop’s
community are very grateful for the Gagnon’s generosity.
We also appreciate the financial support of Frank Lajoie
’49 who has established a trust fund to provide annual income
to our committee for its work.

For the first time in ten years, alumni in the Gaspé
met for a lobster party at the home of Shirley Kitching
’56 and Tom Duncan in Cascapedia. Hosting duties were
ably shared with Cheryl Kouri ’77 for approximately 25
alumni and partners. The weather cooperated beautifully
so that lobster could be boiled outside and steaks
barbecued with everyone helping, in true Bishop’s fashion.
The wine flowed freely, reminiscences were
exchanged and many new friendships formed, as six
decades of graduates were represented.
A table of memorabilia and old yearbooks,
Campuses and other documents and a Bishop’s quiz
proved highlights of the evening. A Bishop’s tie was
presented to the oldest graduate present, Arthur
Campbell ’48.
Graduates came from many areas of the coast —
some 300 km — and the 16 alumni agreed the evening
was a resounding success, thanks to Shirley and Cheryl.

Two Long-serving Faculty Retire
Melissa Clark-Jones
fter 22 years of service to
Bishop’s University, Dr. Melissa
Clark-Jones has retired. Her
retirement, without doubt, will open doors
to new and different life experiences,
challenges that will enable her to live up
to her genius. Alas, for many of her
students, friends, and colleagues, her
departure has left a gaping hole, an
absence that can never be filled. While
we wish her the very best, we deeply
regret her departure. The changes she has
helped institute will remind us of her immense contribution to
making our university a better place, a place where students,
faculty and staff may realize their common humanity.
Dr. Clark-Jones came to Bishop’s University in 1980. In
addition to her extensive knowledge of Sociology, Political
Economy, and Linguistics, she brought with her superb
organizational skills and a lively and vibrant vision of a just and
equitable world, a world where men and women may encounter
each other in freedom and dignity.
While the Melissa Clark-Jones we know and care for is but
a fragment of the whole person, it is clear to her friends,
colleagues and, above all, her students that she has the right
stuff, the stuff that makes a powerful teacher and mentor.
Students held for her the promise of a better world, a promise
she honoured by making herself constantly available to their
needs and inquiries.
16 • Fall 2003 Bishop’s University News
Her classes were designed to promote discussions and
debates about the fabric of social life and its limitation. Social,
political and economic structures were methodically examined
from the point of view of the dispossessed and the
disenfranchised. She sought to sensitize her students to the
neglected presence of those whose voices are stifled by poverty,
ethnic, social and racial inequality. When warranted, whether in
departmental meetings or conversations, Dr. Clark-Jones would
remind her colleagues in a gentle yet firm manner to remain
vigilant, to resist celebrating the good fortunes of those already
fortunate while turning a blind eye and a deaf ear to the
misfortunes of those left out.
Dr. Clark-Jones chaired the Department of Sociology (later
Sociology & Anthropology) for over ten years. Under her tenure
as chair, our department expanded from three to six members.
She helped establish the Anthropology program and areas of
concentration in Gerontology, Communication and Cultural
Studies, Criminology and Women’s Studies. She joined with
others at Bishop’s University to establish an interdisciplinary
Women’s Studies Program.
Ideas, in this instance of gender, do not take place in a
social vacuum — they draw their power from those institutions
they sanction. The inclusion of the disadvantaged is possible,
Dr. Clark-Jones insisted, provided we demystify notions of
power that encourage institutional practices of inequality. And
what better way to demystify gender inequality than by helping
to establish and sustain the Lennoxville Women’s Center, a site
designed to develop social programs and political strategies to
Faculty Retire (cont’d)
improve the lives of women in the Eastern Townships.
Dr. Clark-Jones’ involvement in making our university a
better place includes active participation in the Executive of our
Faculty Union, Fédération des associations de professeurs des
universités du Québec, Executive Committee of Corporation,
Senate, Senate Planning Committee, Faculty Evaluation
Committee, Faculty Appeals Committee, and the Eastern
Townships Research Centre. As if these pedagogical and
organizational accomplishments are insufficient, Dr. Clark-
Jones wrote a book, A Staple State: Canadian Industrial
Resources in Cold War (University of Toronto Press; 1987) and
53 articles and conference presentations.
Although Dr. Clark-Jones has left Bishop’s University,
markers of her unending generosity remain to remind us of our
responsibility to make our world a better place.

Robert MacGregor
obert MacGregor is retiring after 29
years of service to the Division of
Business Administration, to the
university and to the local community.
Robert arrived at Bishop’s in 1974 after
working as an apprentice in marine
engineering in the Fairfield Shipyard on
Glasgow’s River Clyde, as a draughtsman
in the United States and Canada and,
following the completion of his M.B.A.
at the University of Toronto, as a middle
manager in Canada and Australia.
Robert’s specialty is marketing, and he has taught a variety
of courses in that area during his career at Bishop’s. His
students remember him fondly, as evidenced by the number
who keep in touch from all over the world. Robert also coached
the men’s soccer team for a number of years, and was praised in
the student newspaper, The Campus, for holding the players
together through their ups and downs.
Robert has served his Division in a number of capacities,
including Chairperson and marketing area coordinator, and he
has been a member of a myriad of university committees,
including the Executive of the Association of Professors of
Bishop’s University, the Senate Planning and Research
Committees, the Faculty Evaluation Committee, the Status of
Women Committee, and the Executive Committee of
Corporation. In all these endeavours, Robert has shown
particular concern that all Bishop’s employees, faculty and staff
alike, receive fair treatment.
Robert has been a member of nine professional associations
in the areas of administrative sciences and popular culture, and
has shared his marketing expertise with local companies and
organizations. In addition, he has published over 20 articles and
business cases in journals and textbooks, and has given over 40
talks at professional conferences in North America and Europe.
His presentations have been well received and have earned
“Best Paper” awards.
Robert’s research has covered a number of topics including
characteristics of credit card holders in different cultures and
the impact of Quebec nationalism on advertising. However, the
dominant theme in his research is the documentation and
assessment of racial stereotypes in advertising. He has taken
great pains to draw attention to the demeaning aspects of these
portrayals and to question whether ads with stereotypical
imagery are effective. In the spirit of a liberal arts institution,
Robert has given many talks at the Humanities Lecture Series,
often exposing marketing sleights of hand to packed houses. He
has also been willing to share his cultural and marketing
knowledge with various organizations in the local Townships
With his global outlook grounded in his Scottish roots,
Robert never forgets that everyone in this world deserves equal
respect, summed up in the old Scottish phrase “We’re all Jock
Tamson’s bairns” (“His children”). We are pleased that Robert
will be remaining with his family in the area that is his second
home, and that with his ongoing research projects, he will be
visible around campus both in the library and locker room. We
wish him bonne chance and all the best in everything that he

Conservation Corporation Inc.
Even those who are physically frail can walk the less
than five minutes needed to reach, via a boardwalk, an
overlook of the lake/pond that was a centre of attraction for
those on the generations of field trips.
The trip is primarily for former students who knew the
bog years ago, but is open to all who have an interest in
seeing an example of this localized habitat in a micro climate
resembling those of the far north.
No special footwear is required. Paths to the boardwalks
are fine stones. The entrance to the bog is approximately
one kilometer north of the hamlet of Johnville. Meet at 9 a.m.
at the parking lot.

remained, at heart, a student of the human
condition. After graduation, Edith worked in
Ottawa until her marriage to Christian

where they spent almost three years doing
everything that can be done in New York. She
leaves a legacy of selflessness, courage,

missed by all who knew and loved her.
