Announcing the Hartley and Margaret Fredeen Scholarship in Co-operative Studies
The Centre is pleased to acknowledge Margaret and Hartley Fredeen’s dedication to co-operative principals by renaming the F.J.H. Fredeen
Memorial Scholarship to the Hartley and Margaret Fredeen Scholarship
in Co-operative Studies.
The Fredeens always worked as a team with regard
to the family and social action. Since Hartley passed away, Margaret has continued to support the causes they both valued.

The value of the scholarship has increased from $3,500 to $4,000 as a result
of additional donations from many of the Fredeens’ relatives and friends. Since its inception, the scholarship has been awarded ten times to eight graduate students whose research addresses co-operative solutions to the world’s most challenging problems.

Lou Hammond Ketilson Retires

On Tuesday, 9 September, a large group gathered at the University
Club on campus to celebrate the retirement of Lou Hammond Ketilson. University and sector folk, as well as her office colleagues, both fêted
and embarrassed her, acknowledging her wonderful contributions to the Centre and the field of co-operative studies as well as some of the foibles that have endeared her to all of us. Lou has been with the Centre since
its inception in 1984 and spent nine of those years — 2005–2014 — as director. She will continue her involvement with the Centre as a Fellow in Co-operative Management and with the university as an adjunct professor at the Johnson-Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy.

based research projects
over the past year.
