Iust at the beginning of the academic year 1952-53 a
great sorrow befell Carleton College in the death of Mrs. lean
Isabel MacOdrum, beloved wife of our president. To her
memory we reverently dedicate this Yearbook.
Her portrait, which forms the frontispiece, but inadequately
conveys the sweetness and charm of her personality. In the
difficult years of the growing college she has been a constant
source of inspiration and encouragement to her husband, and,
by her gracious participation in the college functions and
activities endeared herself to the faculty and student body to
an unusual degree.
Mrs. MacOdrum was born and educated in St. Iohn's
Newfoundland, served in the Newfoundland government as
legal secretary to the premier, Sir Richard Squires, prior to her
enlistment in the Canadian Women's Army Corps. Those who
were associated with her in her army service will never forget
her "fine strong duty-sense" or her kindness to those in her
charge for she rose to the responsible rank of sergeant, before
her marriage to Dr. MacOdrum in Ianuary 1945. Their many
friends in Ottawa and in Manotick, especially, knew her as
a wonderful home-maker and a devoted mother to her little
daughter, Morna, who with Dr. MacOdrum shares our profound
sympathy in their irreparable loss. St. Andrews church, of
which she was a faithful member was filled with mourners
when her pastor, Dr. Ian Burnett paid eloquent tribute to
Mrs. MacOdrum's lovely and courageous character and the
happiness she had radiated throughout her short life.
"And so, dear one, for you no darksome grave
Your spirit lives, so strong, so gay, so brave."
