About the Alex Fountain Memorial Lecture
Fred and Elizabeth Fountain and their daughter Katharine established the Alex Fountain Memorial Lecture in 2011 to honour Alex, who died in August 2009. This exceptional gift to the college enables the King’s student body to invite a speaker of their choosing to the university each year. Previous lecturers include author Michael Ondaatje, Governor General Michaëlle Jean, experimental vocalist and artist Tanya Tagaq, and most recently Cree artist Kent Monkman.
