Flags on campus are lowered in memory of James “Jim” Whitley, an emeritus professor in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics.
Dr. Whitley started teaching mathematics at Queen’s in September 1963. From 1966 to 1974, in addition to his teaching workload, he served as executive assistant to the dean of Arts and Science, and later, as assistant to Principal John Deutsch. Dr. Whitley was the 2001 recipient of the Alumni Award for Excellence in Teaching, given annually by the Queen’s University Alumni Association.
His family will hold a visitation at the University Club (168 Stuart St.) from 2-5 pm on Saturday Jan. 10.
