The SUZANNE MACKENZIE
Mackenzie was a much beloved member of the geographical community,
in Canada and internationally, who died at home in Nelson, B.C.
on October 24, 1998. She will long be remembered for her courage,
her commitment to feminism, her deep sense of caring for friends,
family and students, her sense of justice and right and her irrepressible
humour, bound up in a generous spirit.
Every second year, the
fund established by The Canadian Women and Geography Study Group (CWAG)
in the memory of Suzanne Mackenzie, supports the presentation of a
lecture by a woman whose involvement in geography bears a significant
correspondence with Suzanne's interests and passions. The lecture
takes place at the Annual Meeting of the CAG. A sub-committee
of CWAG is responsible for the selection.
It is possible to make
donations to the memorial fund in Suzanne's memory and we encourage
you to do so to ensure that the memorial lecture can be held on a
regular biennial basis. Those individuals who would like to make a
tax-deductible contribution should forward a cheque (made out to The
Canadian Association of Geographers) to: Audrey Kobayashi, Department
of Geography, Queen’s University, Mackintosh-Corry Hall, Kingston,
ON K7L 3N6.
CWAG is proud to present it's annual lecture
series: the Suzanne Mackenzie Lecture Series.
