Editorial highlights the lasting impact of founding dean

A glowing editorial published today in The Waterloo Region Record highlights the far-reaching mark made by Douglas Wright, the founding dean of Waterloo Engineering.

Wright, who died last week at the age of 92, went on to serve as the third president and vice-chancellor of the University of Waterloo as it grew into a world-class institution of higher learning and research.

The editorial argues Waterloo Region would be a far different, far poorer place, had it not been for Wright's vision and determination to help bring academia and industry together.
