Congratulations, Dr. Paul Esau!


Dr. Paul Esau

Just before the 2022 year-end holidays (December 20, 2022), Paul Esau successfully defended his PhD dissertation entitled, “A Departmental Dilemma: The Genesis of Canadian Military Export Policy, 1945-1960.” Esau’s study seeks to explain Canadian government contradictions between policy on paper and in practice, by exploring the evolution of conventional military export policy in the key years between 1946 and 1960.

The Tri-U community continues to mourn his loss and miss his contributions to student and faculty life. As the news release from Guelph written by colleague Dr. Susan Nance states, "His passing leaves a huge hole in our hearts."
