While at Dalhousie University completing his medical degree, Mackay met his future wife, Betty Bird, daughter of Will R. Bird (DLitt, ’49) and Ethel Sutton (Ladies’ College, ’13), and sister of Stephen Bird (’40). Mackay and Betty raised a family of four while pursuing careers in the U.S., where Mackay became professor of anatomy at the Downstate Medical Center of the State University of New York. When they retired in Lorneville, NS, Mackay took up the cello and made weekly trips across the marsh to play in Mount A’s chamber orchestra. To the end of his life, Mackay avidly read medical journals and thought deeply about new directions in research. And music, shared with Betty, brought peace and consolation passing understanding. The Allisonian tradition continues with the recent graduation of a granddaughter, Alex Taylor (’14). attend Mount Allison for her undergrad, Cathy was thrilled at the coincidence upon arrival to campus when she realized the room Heather had been assigned in Windsor Hall was in fact, the same one she had lived in during her time as a Windsor Hall resident. Cathy was deeply loved and respected by those around her for many reasons, however her sincere compassion and loyalty truly set her apart. She kept in touch with many of her University friends over the years, maintaining a deep and genuine understanding of the value of friendship. Family always came first for Cathy, and the innumerable loved ones she left behind will miss her incredibly. John C.
