Faculty, students, and alumni of the Centre for Medieval Studies deeply regret the passing of Brian Merrilees, Emeritus Professor of French and Medieval Studies and fellow of Victoria College. Professor Merrilees was a brilliant scholar of Old French, as well as a compassionate and generous colleague and teacher who will be deeply missed by those fortunate enough to have known him. He was an officer of the Centre for Medieval Studies in its early years, as well as a mentor to generations of graduate and undergraduate students. A memorial celebration of his life will be held on September 30, 2013 at 5:00 p.m., Victoria College Chapel, 91 Charles St. West. Reception to follow in Emmanuel College, Room 119.
