The J. Douglas Gibson Lecture

The fund was established to underwrite a lecture on social policy questions, to be delivered by a distinguished scholar chosen by the Director of the School of Policy Studies on a roughly annual basis - the timing of the lecture to be determined by the availability of a suitable scholar.

The nucleus of the fund was the donations to Queen's made by my husband's friends and business connections at the time of his death, February 1988. The Gibson lecturer not only gives the Lecture but also conducts seminars, classes etc. for students on the day of the lecture.
