Death of Professor MacVannel

by Departmental notes - 1916

On November 10, 1915, Dr. John Angus MacVannel, professor of the philosophy of education in Teachers College, died in his forty-fifth year at his home in St. Mary’s, Ontario. He left a widow and one child, a daughter of about seven years of age. His death was not altogether unexpected. For some time chronic Brights disease had made inroads upon his bodily strength. His circulatory system had become involved, causing hardening of the arteries and consequent slight paralytic strokes which still further impaired his vigor. For the past two years he had not been able to carry full work; for this scholastic year he had not returned at all to the classroom. When finally the end came, it was tranquil; although he expressed disappointment that he might not die in the new home which he and his wife were building at St. Mary’s for his declining years.
