Biographical history

David McKeen was born January 21, 1938 in Hamilton, Ontario, and died July 28, 1982. He received a Ph.D. at the Shakespeare Institute, University of Birmingham. He joined Sir George Williams University in 1965 as an associate professor of English. For several years he served as the director of graduate studies for the Department. He switched to administration in 1975 when he became the acting assistant dean, academic priorities and budget, for the Faculty of Arts. In 1976 he became the associate dean of curriculum, a position he retained in Divison 1 of Arts and Sciences. He was author of the book A Memory of Honour on the life of William Brooke. The design of Concordia's armorial bearings is credited largely to McKeen, who attended London's College of Heraldry. At the time of his death, he was associate dean of the Faculty of Arts and Science.
