Dates of existence


Stirling Dorrance was born in Sudbury. He left St. Mary’s University, in Halifax to join Loyola College to take charge in 1963 of the College’s tiny Development Office. A reorganization of planning and development operations at Loyola in 1970 resulted in new responsibilities for M. Dorrance when Loyola public relations, including information services and campus and alumni relations, were added to his development functions. Later (ca. 1973), he assumed additional responsibilities as the new Development Officer for Sir George Williams University (SGWU), replacing Brian Selwood whose resignation had been announced in December 1973, continuing to report to Malone, both in his continuing capacity as Director of Development at Loyola and as Development Officer for SGWU. Thus, he can be seen as one of the first employees of Concordia University. He began work on the organization of development and public relations plans for Concordia. He left Concordia University on July 1, 1977, to join the administration staff of St. Francis Xavier University, in Antigonish, Nova Scotia.
