DONOVAN, Richard Bertram, C.S.B.
Died at Scarborough General Hospital July 11, 2007. Richard was born on March 26, 1923 in Rochester, New York, the son of Raymond and Lillian (BERTRAM) DONOVAN. He entered Aquinas Institute, Rochester, New York the year the Basilian Fathers took charge of the school in September 1937. Upon graduating from high school, Richard entered St. Basil's Novitiate in Toronto and made his profession of vows August 15, 1942. Father Donovan then pursued his B.A. degree at Saint Michael's College, Toronto followed by four years of theological studies. He was ordained to the priesthood by James Cardinal McGUIGAN, Archbishop of Toronto, in 1950 and that same year completed an M.A. degree in French at the University of Toronto. Graduate studies followed at Yale University culminating in a Ph.D. degree in French Language and Literature. While at Yale he was awarded a Fulbright Scholarship for study and research in France and Spain. In 1956 Father Donovan was appointed to the University of Saint Michael's College, Toronto, where he taught French for thirty years. He was department head from 1962 to 1975 and Registrar from 1977 to 1989.

From 1990 to 2001 Fr. Donovan assisted in the work of the Saint Michael's College Alumni Office, serving as Records Officer. From 1988 to 1994 he had the pleasure of serving as superior during the summers at Strawberry Island, a summer retreat for the Basilians in beautiful Lake Simcoe. He managed to do a bit of fishing there, which was to provide tasty fish for the hungry crowds on the Island. Many of his students and professors have kept in touch with him after his retirement from teaching. He was admired as a devoted teacher and scholar, who inspired his students with a love for languages. Father Donovan celebrated the 50th anniversary of his ordination to the priesthood on June 25 in the Jubilee year 2000 at the Cardinal Flahiff Basilian Centre chapel with six fellow jubilarians.
