Queen's remembers Professor Emeritus Edwin (Ted) Neave
February 13, 2023
The Queen’s community is remembering Professor Emeritus Edwin (Ted) Neave, a long-time faculty member at Smith School of Business, who died Feb. 6. He was 87.
Dr. Neave arrived at Queen’s in 1971 and retired in 2005. After receiving a Bachelor of Commerce degree from the University of British Columbia he would go on to University of California, Berkley, where he would earn his PhD in 1968.
After several years at Northeastern University Dr. Neave was recruited by Queen’s, where he would remain for the next 44 years.
Following his retirement Dr. Neave was inducted into Smith’s Faculty Hall of Fame in 2009. A prolific researcher, he developed and implemented simulation-based teaching modules for the Institute of Canadian Bankers that are used in more than 40 countries. He is also an Honorary Fellow of the Institute of Canadian Bankers.
During his career he authored numerous articles and books focusing on asset pricing and the theory of financial systems.
Dr. Neave was known as a champion and mentor for junior faculty and graduate students. In 2014, shortly after his wife passed away, he established the Elizabeth Neave Fellowship for master’s students to support “innovative research that fosters social progress”. It remains one of the largest fellowships in the program.
A memorial service will be held Tuesday, Feb. 14 at 11 a.m. at Arbor Memorial in Kingston.
