People working in an office together

A memorial fund has been set up in Don Obe’s name to provide emergency assistance for Ryerson journalism students in need. You can donate to it here.

As the funding page states, Don died as he lived: on his own terms. He began and ended his career at Ryerson, first studying and then teaching. He served as chair of the School of Journalism and founded the Review in 1984.

Read “Sketches of Obe,” a tribute to Don from his friends and colleagues.
