In memoriam - Ben Singer

July 2012

Ben SingerProfessor Emeritus Benjamin Singer died on July 8, 2012. Singer was an early member of the Department of Sociology who retired in the late 1990s. In the words of a former colleague, Ben was “always interesting, frequently difficult, but never dull as a colleague.” He added a great deal of colour and life to the department for more than three decades.  During his retirement, he touched a number of lives, always leaving a memorable impression. He will be missed.
