Memorial Room

This small ornate room in the John Deutsch University Centre commemorates the 351 Queen's students and alumni who died in the First and Second World Wars. It features two large bronze plaques inscribed with the names of those who died, a stone altar, stained glass windows, and seven oil paintings of men and women from each branch of the Canadian Forces, painted by Toronto artist Marion Long.

A large quotation from Wordsworth runs around the perimeter of the room: "We must be free or die who speak the tongue that Shakespeare spake/The faith and morals hold which Milton held." The quotation and the inscriptions on the altar were chosen by Queen's former Vice-Principal William McNeill.
