Massey College honours Rose Wolfe and Ursula Franklin

Chancellor Emerita Rose Wolfe and Professor Emerita Ursula Franklin were recently honoured by Massey College: windows were installed in the Upper Library to celebrate their contributions to the college.

Franklin, a metallurgist who taught in U of T’s department of material science and engineering, is a senior fellow at Massey College. She was the first woman at the university to be designated a University Professor, in 1984.

Rose Wolfe (BA 1938 UC, DIP SW 1939) served as chancellor of U of T from 1991 to 1997, and established the Chancellor Rose and Ray Wolfe Chair in Holocaust Studies. She is a senior fellow and visitor emerita at Massey.

The stained-glass windows, shown in close-up above, have been dubbed Wisdom Windows. They were created by Canadian glass artist Sarah Hall.
