Father Patrick G. Malone, S. J. was born June 28, 1918 in Belfast, Northern Ireland, and died in Pickering, Ontario, on February 26, 2001. Although born in Belfast, he grew up in Toronto where he received his early education. He entered the Jesuits at Guelph, Ontario in 1936 and followed their program of studies. He also studied politics and economics at the University of Toronto (M.A. 1945). In July 1946, he was assigned to the Jesuit Seminary in Toronto, to begin theological studies and was ordained to priesthood on June 27, 1949. After a further year of studies in theology there, he went for a year of spiritual theology at the Institut Saint-Robert-Bellarmin in Belgium. On his return to Canada in 1951, Father Malone’s first assignment was at Saint Mary’s University and High School in Halifax as professor and Dean of Studies. In 1956, he was appointed President of Saint Mary’s University. On August 15, 1959, Father Malone became the 13th Rector and first President of Loyola College in Montreal and held the position until the end of the academic year 1973-1974. In the context of the merger of Loyola College and Sir George Williams University, he had also been appointed Vice-Rector and Principal of Loyola Campus on August 10, 1973, by the Board of Governors of the coming new institution which officially became Concordia University in August 1974. Only a few months before, on March 20, 1974, Father Malone announced his resignation from both positions. Father Malone received an Honorary degree from Concordia University at its Inaugural Convocation (Loyola Faculty of Arts and Science) in June 1975.
