The May Court Club of Ottawa has a long history of supporting social services and education
projects in the community with particular emphasis on literacy and
services to the disabled among others. In 2006 the May Court Grants
Committee recommended to the Board that funds received from the
bequest of Susan Anderson be utilized to sponsor a Scholarship in
her memory. She spent many years of her life as one of the librarians
at the Parliamentary Library in Ottawa as well as a dedicated volunteer
to the Rykert Library at the Ottawa Hospital, Civic Campus a service
which is offered by the May Court Club of Ottawa. Her interest in
and support for the Club never failed.
To recognize her tremendous contribution to the Club and to society, the Board has established
the Susan Anderson Memorial Scholarship in the Master’s Program
in Information Studies at the University of Ottawa.
