Friends and colleagues of Joan Magee are collecting donations to set up an award in memory of the UWindsor faculty retiree, who died in August 2018.
The funds collected will support an award to serve as a tribute acknowledging her contributions to the University and its students. Funds will support students studying in languages, literatures, and culture in the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences; and digitalization of materials in the Leddy Library, where she worked.
Magee joined the University of Windsor as a reference librarian in July 1963, and was promoted in September 1965 to head of the Reference Department, a position she held until her retirement in August 1993. Her research and teaching interests included Scandinavian studies.
