In memoriam Gerald M. Auchinachie


His many friends and colleagues were saddened to hear of the death on Oct. 30 of Professor Gerald M. Auchinachie.

Jerry joined the Sir George Williams English Department in 1968 after teaching in Victoria and Saskatoon, and retired in 1997 after a distinguished career as an influential and beloved teacher specializing in 19th-century British literature.

He was a Fellow of the Centre for Mature Students, Graduate Program Director and Chair of the English Department.

Students and colleagues remember him in countless stories as a man of great learning, wit and charm, and as a friend of immense warmth and generosity.

He is survived by his wife, Olive, his daughter Lisa and her family in Australia, and his son, Keith, to whom we extend our sympathy.

If you wish to make a donation toward the creation of an endowed Auchinachie Scholarship in the Department of English, please send your contribution (marked "Auchinachie Scholarship"), payable to Concordia University, to the Office of University Advancement and Alumni Relations, 1455 de Maisonneuve Blvd West, FB520 Montreal, Quebec H3G 1M8.
