Saint Mary’s University notes the passing of two honorary degree recipients

17 February, 2017

It is with deep sadness that Saint Mary’s University notes the passing of two prominent honorary degree recipients:

Dr. Cora Greenaway led the formation of the first Heritage Trust in Canada. She will be remembered for her deep concern for the Painted Rooms of Nova Scotia, especially the Croscup Room in Karsdale (now a prominent exhibit in the National Gallery of Canada).

Dr. Greenaway received a Doctor of Fine Arts in October 2001.

Stuart McLean was a bestselling author, journalist and humorist who entertained millions of Canadians as host of the popular CBC Radio program “The Vinyl Café.”

McLean received an Honorary Doctorate of Civil Law in May 2012.
