The Edgar Raymond Martin Memorial Scholarship in Music
This scholarship, valued at the annual interest on the endowment, has been established by Mrs. Helen MacLeod in memory of her brother Edgar Martin. Edgar completed a Bachelor of Science at McGill University, Montreal in 1942 and died later that year while returning to St. John's aboard the S.S. Caribou which was torpedoed, causing the loss of 137 lives. Edgar was 19 years old and had a profound love for classical music. In his memory, this scholarship will be awarded to a full time graduate student in the School of Music. It will be awarded by the Dean, School of Graduate Studies based on a recommendation from the Director, School of Music.
