Ian Dyck, 1954-2007, associate professor of history, passed away Sunday, July 15, 2007 after a long battle with leukemia. He was 52.                                     

Dyck, who joined SFU in 1988, received an Excellence in Teaching award in 1991. “Hundreds of undergraduates delighted in his Western Civilization lectures and he was much loved as a seminar leader in a course on popular culture in Britain and Europe,” says John Craig, chair of the history department.

Dyck’s research attracted support from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council and fellowships in Cambridge and at the Huntington Library. His published works included William Cobbett and Rural Popular Culture (Cambridge University Press, 1992) and his most recent book Cobbett’s Rural Rides (Penguin, 2001).

A memorial service at SFU will take place in October.
