Thursday, January 15, 2009
One of the Faculty’s first Professors, Douglas M. Gray, has died. Professor Gray taught history from 1965 until his retirement in 1982. He was hired by the Faculty’s founding dean, W. S. Turner, to teach at “the new Ontario College of Education, opening in London in September, 1965.” Professor Gray earned his B.A. and M.A. from Queen’s University. He began his teaching career with the Hamilton Board of Education where he remained until he was hired by Dean Turner. Western’s flag will be lowered at 11 am on January 17 in honour of Professor Gray.
