Chairs at Queen’s

Posted: November 24th, 2014

For the university community, a chair is a position of distinction. Chairs provide the means for universities to recognize, attract and retain top researchers and scholars, both from within the university and from around the world. Research chairs carry special privileges and obligations.

The Douglas Chair in Canadian and Colonial ­History came with its own custom-made armchair. In 1910, James Douglas, Queen’s third chancellor, personally funded the chair and later commissioned an elaborately carved Burmese teak armchair to accompany the position.

The current chair holder is Dr. Don Akenson, a specialist in Irish history. The armchair, being restored, in 2010, by Stéphane Doyon, a Master of Art Conservation student, is now on display in the Special ­Collections room of Douglas Library.

The incunabula exhibit, on display in the W.D. Jordan Library from October 20 – December 1, 2014, includes materials from the Library’s collection as well as two works from Principal Woolf’s private collection.

In a recent interview with the Queen’s Gazette, Principal Woolf encouraged people to visit the exhibit, saying that “(t)he exhibit is fabulous because these aren’t just old books. They’re among the rarest in the world and they appeared right at the dawn of printing.” Read the full interview in the Gazette, and be sure to come to the W. D.
