The Rector Norman McLeod Rogers Scholarship

Established to honour my late uncle, Norman Rogers (1894-1940), after whom I was named. He was killed in June 1940 in a military plane while on his way to Toronto as Minister of National Defence along with the crew of two.

My uncle was a Rhodes Scholar in 1920 and a graduate of Oxford with 3 degrees. He taught at Queen's, became private secretary to Prime Minister MacKenzie King and was a Member of Parliament for Kingston and the Islands. He taught political science at Queen's and was elected as Rector.
