Sadly we report the death of Margrit Eichler, on July 8th.

Margrit was an accomplished scholar, mentor, activist and adventurer.  She was born and educated in Germany and received her MA and PhD from the United States. Most recently she was Professor Emerita of the University of Toronto, Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE).   Margrit's scholarly background was a great asset to the Academy in many ways.  She was president of the Academy 2014-15, and she could be counted on to participate in the Academy`s workshops, forums and debates. She always had well-articulated, strong views on subjects like women's issues, the environment and social justice.  We hope to have some personal remarks from people who knew her well in our next AQR

Here is her obituary written by her friends:
