    Grant Buchan-Terrell

    – Artsci’75

    Spring 2022

    At Queen’s, I majored in Economics and lived in the Animal House (McNeil) residence for the first year. Second year, I lived on University Avenue with the prominent John Wilson (my mentor, who died young tragically), the Dixon brothers, and Dean Manjuris in the warm basement. I graduated from Osgoode and went to Calgary where I lucked into a position with Macleod Dixon, spending about eight years doing oil and gas law, then later banking, M&A, and securities law. From the Calgary highs and lows – marrying Nancy Dougay in 1980, and starting our family – we moved to Ottawa to be in the branch office of Blaney, McMurtry, Stapells to do corporate/commercial law. In 1995, I went to Mississauga to join Keyser Mason Ball to do banking and commerce. In 2000, I opened up my own practice with an Oakville base. Though past the 65-year-old threshold for retirement, I remain in practice.

    Dr. K. Jennifer Ingram

    – Meds’74

    Spring 2022

    Congratulations to Dr. Jenny (Lobb) Ingram, who recently received two significant honours: the Seniors CareNetwork Visionary Award 2021 and an appointment to a new Advocacy Panel of the Ontario Medical Association. As a geriatric medicine specialist, she founded the Kawartha Centre – Redefining Healthy Aging, which is a dementia clinical and research facility in Peterborough, Ont. The Visionary Award 2021 cited her two-decade role in the development of 12 nurse practitioner-led complex senior’s medical clinics called GAIN Teams (Geriatric Assessment and Intervention Network). The pandemic response failed persons with dementia leading her to a new advocacy role. Dr. Ingram will bring this passion for senior’s rights to the OMA’s Advocacy Panel as one of seven appointed physicians.

    Christian Fabricius

    – Artsci’76

    Spring 2022

    After graduating from Queen’s, I returned to Ottawa and eventually began work on my MA thesis in political science for Carleton University, comparing Indigenous land rights in Canada and Australia. As part of my research, I travelled to Canberra, Australia, in 1978 where, without having ever planned to do so, I applied for and was accepted into the law school of the Australian National University. After graduating from the ANU Law School in 1981, I spent a couple of years in private legal practice, followed by several years as a corporate in-house lawyer before joining the Australian Public Service in 1990, the year I also got married in Adelaide. Some of the highlights of my career were helping draft and implement legislation to set up Australia’s sports drug agency and the National Environment Protection Agency, a national regime for the recognition of Indigenous native title, as well as spending three years in Darwin in the Northern Territory as manager of the Aboriginal Land Rights legislation section. My final position before retiring was as General Counsel and Senior Legal Officer in the Office of the Registrar of Indigenous Corporations (ORIC). Just thought some might be interested in which direction my degree from Queen’s ended up taking me — some major and unexpected changes in direction that I would have never thought of at the time of my graduation.
