The James Robertson Carruthers Memorial Prize in History

This fund is created in loving memory of our caring and brilliant son, James Robertson Carruthers, M.A. 1975. His passion, courage and incredible scholarship have been an inspiration to those who guided him throughout his learnings and written expressions at Queen's University. He was a critical thinker. The late Dr. Roger Graham and Dr. Donald Scherman guided him during his PhD studies. He admired them.

He set goals for himself - practicing law at a Hamilton Law Firm and completing his PhD at Queen's - that were beyond human hope. His early death at age 30 - is very hard with which to cope.
