Letters to the Editor

Congratulations to the Board of Trustees and to the Queen’s community for the decision to honour Robert Sutherland for his generous contribution to Queen’s and moreover, his being the first black man – and perhaps the first person of colour – to graduate from a university in British North America.

The renaming of the Policy Studies Building to Robert Sutherland Hall also honours Queen’s. I’m glad that the University trustees recognized this.
