Doyle House

John Christopher Doyle, versatile, colourful and controversial promoter and industrialist, was born in the United Sates, trained as a specialist mining engineer at Chicago and served as a staff officer with the American Army during the North African and Italian campaigns. In the post-war years he became a Canadian citizen and carved a North American and European career in developing the iron ore resources of Labrador. This enterprise, one of the great iron-mining operations of the Americas, John C. Doyle conceived, planned and carried through with technical acumen and a relentless and driving energy. He has become one of the builders of the developing industrial giant of Labrador and a generous friend of the University whose benefactors were acknowledged by the conferring of the degree of Doctor of Letters (honoris causa).
