The W.S. O'Hara Prize in Criminal Law

Established by Mr. L.H. Tepper, Q.C., a Kingston lawyer, in memory of William S. O'Hara, a gold medalist of Dalhousie University Faculty of Law, whose brief career as a member of the Kingston Bar showed great promise.

This Fund was created because of his graduation at Dalhousie with a gold medal from its law faculty and his ability to practice with great distinction as a lawyer in Kingston for the few years before his untimely death.

He loved his country and served with the allied force that invaded France toward the end of world War II and was severely wounded in the "Battle of the Bulge". He died suddenly in the summer of 1955.

I created this Fund to keep his name alive.
