This issue of the Ambassador salutes a remarkable man, Dr J. Francis Leddy, President of the University of Windsor from July 1, 1964. When Dr. Leddy announced he would retire in 1978 an immediate sense of loss was felt widely not only by members of the teaching staff and the administration, but by many in the student body. It was clear to all of them that they were to lose a wise and humane leader and friend.
Throughout his career and particularly as President at Windsor, Dr. Leddy has given a high priority to students individually and as a group. In addition to maintaining one of the most open doors on short notice in the University system, he has leant sympathy, aid and support to every kind of student aspiration. One of his particular concerns has been the broadening of educational opportunity and understanding in the student world not only Canada, but throughout the world.
