May 14th was a glorious spring day in Halifax — the lawns greening nicely in the sun and the forsythia striking yellow sparks in all corners of the campus. The brightest sparks, however, were the graduates of the English Department, and their faculty are justly proud of them.
Not all of them were able to assemble in the English Corner afterward, but you have to agree that those who did are a very fine lot.
You may notice a very unusual sight in the annual graduation photo: Dr. Chris Ferns attended Convocation to be named Professor Emeritus on his retirement. Congratulations Dr. Ferns. It’s a very distinguished honour and a well-deserved one. And he looks good in academic regalia!
