(March 23, 2000, Gazette)

Grace Morgan

Grace Morgan, a long-time friend and supporter of Memorial University of Newfoundland, died March 10. She was predeceased by her husband Dr. Moses Morgan, former president of Memorial. Born and educated in Saunavon, Saskatchewan, she married Dr. Morgan in 1968 in Toronto, after which the couple moved to Newfoundland to live. Mrs. Morgan was an energetic volunteer. In Newfoundland, she took an active role in the Women’s Association of Memorial University, particularly in the area of scholarships. She was also a member of the Newfoundland Home Economics Association and the Canadian Federation of University Women, though failing health prevented her from taking an active role in those organizations in recent years.

Carman Mews

Carman Mews, a long-time member of the Chemistry Department, passed peacefully away at home on March 14, 2000, at the age of 87 years. A service was held in the Anglican Cathedral March 17. No flowers please; donations can be made to the SPCA, according to Mr. Mews’s wishes.

Dr. Cedric James Francis

Passed peacefully away at the Grace General Hospital on Friday, March 10, 2000, Dr. Cedric James Francis, aged 73 years. Born Dec. 15, 1926, in Lancashire, England, Dr. Francis joined the English Department at Memorial in 1962 and was a major figure in the development of theatre at Memorial. In his first year, he established the fiction and drama courses. The theatre course would eventually become a theatre/drama program. Dr. Francis preceded the theatre program in introducing regular coaching in practical theatre, at that time as extra-curricular activity. From 1974 to 1977, Dr. Francis served as the first associate dean of Graduate Studies. Donations in his memory may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.
