The Queen’s University Alumni Association is pleased to invite you to an evening with Dr. Alan Harrison, Queen’s University Provost and Vice-Principal. Dr. Harrison will speak on the increasing importance of developing an international presence for Queen’s, especially in the United Kingdom.


Dr. Harrison is a highly accomplished teacher and researcher in economics.  In 2003, the McMaster Students' Union honoured him with a Lifetime Achievement Award in teaching.  His papers have been published in major economics journals, including American Economic Review, Review of Economic Studies, International Economic Review, and Canadian Journal of Economics, and his research was supported for many years by a succession of grants from Canada’s Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council.


Our autumn event is set to be held at the historic Buck’s Club in exclusive Mayfair. Founded in 1919, Buck’s was one of the first gentlemen’s clubs in London to establish an American-style bar and is best known for the creation of the Buck’s Fizz cocktail.


Please note that due to the nature of the venue, jackets and ties are required for men and dress of similar standard for women.
