Student scholarship fund contribution honours late board chair

A donation by the University to its general endowment fund commemorates former Board of Governors chair Patrick Furlong (BA 1948), who died Nov. 23.

The fund supports scholarships for graduate and undergraduate students in all disciplines.

His 60-year legal career saw him elected a life bencher by the Law Society of Upper Canada and included tenures as president of the Ontario Bar Association and the Essex Law Association, as well as UWindsor board chair from 1986 to 1988.

Former dean of law Bruce Elman recalls Furlong as “a gentleman, always with a smile on his face and a word of good cheer. He will be missed by all those privileged to have known him.”
