History

Martin Graham was born in Heswall, Lancashire, England in 1939 and died in Pointe-Claire on September 5, 2015. He came to Canada in 1947 and attended Roslyn School and Lower Canada College in Montreal and then the University of New Brunswick where he got his bachelor and master’s degrees in Electrical Engineering. He joined Sir George Williams University (SGWU) as a lecturer in Engineering in 1962 and became Assistant Professor in 1964. In 1965 he became director of new SGWU Computer Centre that he ran until 1976. In 1970, Martin became SGWU Assistant Vice-Principal, Communications that put him in charge, in addition to the Computer Centre, of the Centre for Instructional Technology (CIT), the Bookstore and the Telephone Services. After the merger, his responsibilities extended to both Concordia campuses with the title of Assistant Vice-Rector, Communications. In 1976, Martin was named Vice-Rector, Administration and Finance, a post he held until October 1984 when he became the first Vice-Rector, Services for two years. Throughout his career at Concordia, he always taught at least one course each term in order to stay in touch with the students who were his main concern. In 1986, he returned to teaching in Computer Science and in 1991, he became Principal of the Institute for Co-operative Education. He retired from Concordia on May 1, 2001.
