Members of the Queen’s community are remembering Professor Emeritus C.H.R. “Chuck” Campling who passed away on Monday, June 24. He was 96.

Professor Campling first arrived at Queen’s as an undergraduate electrical engineering student during the Second World War. He graduated with a BSc in 1944 and went on to do a master’s degree in electrical engineering from MIT.

Professor Campling taught Electrical and Computer Engineering at Queen’s from 1955 to 1989 and was department head from 1967 to 1977. After his retirement, Professor Campling continued to participate in alumni events, most recently at Homecoming this past fall.  

In 1988 the University Council presented Prof. Campling with the Distinguished Service award, celebrating him as “a teacher whose intelligence, caring, and dedication have brought distinction to his alma matter and placed an indelible stamp, through his students, on Canada’s technological future.”
