TERMS OF REFERENCE FOR AN ENDOWED FUND

NAME OF ENDOWED FUND

Hugh G. Doyle Scholarship

INTRODUCTION

This fund was created in memory of the late Hugh G. Doyle (1948- 1979), Ottawa lawyer specializing in Family Law and graduate of the University of Ottawa, with fellow graduates and friends U of O President Allan Rock and former Senator Hugh Segal. Hugh Doyle was strongly committed to the evolution of family law reform in Ontario and shortly before his death had been appointed to the Office of the Children’s Lawyer to continue his contribution to the development of what is now known as the Family Responsibility Office. He took great pride in crafting documents and court presentations, both in English and French. While an Anglophone, he became fluently bilingual and capable of representing in court in both official languages and was praised for his mastery of French by a Francophone judge. Hugh’s spirit for justice and community service was expressed every year through his passionate leadership in the U of O Shinerama activities, writing and editing for The Fulcrum, and bringing home international students for Sunday dinners. Hugh was intelligent, funny, always took time to stop for those who needed help, was a good friend, brother and son. He truly lived the change he sought to effect in his world, both personally and professionally.
