DONOR STORY: A Secret Passion

Colin Roderick’s connection with James Cook University began in 1965, when he became one of the university’s first lecturers, and continued until his death in 2000. He was a passionate advocate of Australian literature and a generous supporter of undergraduate prizes for English students. Prof essor Roderick established the Foundation for Australian Literary Studies at JCU, with its’ prestigious annual lecture series and the literary prize bearing his name, which continues to recognise Australia’s best writers and thinkers.

After his death, Professor Roderick’s will revealed another passion - furthering medicine in North Queensland. His bequest to James Cook University’s School of Medicine provided the Colin and Margaret Roderick Clinical Training Facility, which was officially opened in 2009.
