John Loxley (1942 - 2020)

University of Manitoba

The late John Loxley was the steadfast Principle Investigator of multiple SSHRC grants at the MRA from 2002 to 2020. The MRA is so fortunate to have had him lead us into our 4th successful multi-year SSHRC grant and we fully intend to continue as he would have wanted us to do. John was a colleague and friend, but also a mentor to those who worked with the MRA. We take seriously our responsibility to carry the torch in his memory.
