Canada Post Honours Moriyama

Seven alumni and one student appointed to Order of Canada

In May, Canada Post issued a commemorative stamp featuring the Ontario Science Centre, designed by architect Raymond Moriyama (BArch 1954) in 1969. The stamp was one of four issued to celebrate the Royal Architectural Institute of Canada’s 100th anniversary. Moriyama, one of Canada’s most respected architects, founded Moriyama & Teshima Architects in 1958, and was partner in charge of projects such as the Canadian Embassy in Tokyo and the Bata Shoe Museum in Toronto.

Seven alumni and one student have been appointed to the Order of Canada, the country’s highest distinction for lifetime achievement.

Named members of the order were Craig Kielburger, founder and chair of Free the Children; Hanna Newcombe (MA 1946, PhD 1950), peace activist and researcher; Mark Rowswell (BA 1988 UC), one of China’s most popular entertainers; Robert Stephens (MD 1947), director of Health Partners International of Canada; and Setsuko Thurlow (BSc 1956, MSW 1960), Hiroshima survivor, writer and peace activist.
