FOR HER competent scholarship, her Christian
devotion to the work of Covenant College, and
her gracious and helpful friendliness to us all,
we take great pleasure in dedicating the Tartan
of 1960 to Dr. Marian Iane Downey, Professor
and Chairman of the Department of English.
Born in northern Ireland, Miss Downey
was brought to America in her infancy by her
devout Christian parents, and grew to young
womanhood in Grand Rapids, Michigan. After
graduating from Moody Bible Institute she first
engaged in Christian service in Iowa, and then
took her college work and received her A.B.
degree from Wheaton College.
Her teaching career began in a Christian
preparatory school at Mars Hill, North Caro-
lina. From this position she was called back to
Wheaton to serve in the important position of
secretary to the president, Dr. Charles A. Blan-
chard. When Dr. Blanchard died in Ianuary,
1926, Miss Downey very greatly assisted the
trustees in the interim administration, and was
of inestimable help, says Dr. I. Oliver Buswell,
the new and inexperienced president, in taking
over his complicated duties. It was not only in
administrative matters that she was helpful, he
testifies, but"she straightened out several kinks
in my English, especially the moods and tenses
of my auxilliary verbs."
Miss Downey's chief interest was in teach-
ing. In the course of time, a Master of Arts de-
gree, and then a Doctor of Philosophy degree
were earned at the University of Illinois. Upon
the retirement of the noted teacher, Dr. Elsie
Storrs Dow, Dr. Downey became her successor
as head of the English department of Wheaton
After serving with distinction for some
years at Wheaton, Dr. Downey was persuaded
to join the faculty of Shelton College in New
York City, and since 1956, she has been the
Chairman of the English Department of Cove-
All round the world today there are minis-
ters, missionaries, authors, and laymen whose
workmanship for the Lord has been greatly
increased in its effectiveness by Dr. Downey's
