Concordia's Journalism Department lost a valued part-time teacher when Lew Harris died October 10 of cancer at the age of 51.
Enn Raudsepp, Chair of the department, told The Gazette last week that Harris was a serious and dedicated teacher, and former student Katherine Wilton called him a great storyteller.
A graduate of Sir George Williams University in English literature, he came from a family of journalists. He worked for the Sherbrooke Record, the Montreal Star, and then The Gazette, working long after his diagnosis and almost to the end of his life.
We extend our sympathies to Lew's wife, Marian Scott, and their two sons.
