Professor Emeritus in Education
Convocation: October 25, 1998
Dalton London has distinguished himself as a person of outstanding generosity to his profession.
A longtime member of the faculty of education, he has been described as "caring in his attitude toward students, demanding in his teaching, giving in his service and productive in his research." Dr. London is a specialist in second-language teaching.
He co-founded the internationally recognized Second Language Education Centre and the highly successful summer immersion program at Tracadie. During the program's 19-year run, he helped hundreds of French teachers throughout the province become better second-language teachers.
Dr. London also worked closely with the province to establish second-language curriculum and evaluation programs. He retired in July 1998 with 30 years of service.
