Mary Pat
Mary Pat McMahon, Assistant to the Registrar Geoffrey Payzant, at her typewriter in the Writing Lab. Only a few years senior to the incoming Innis students, Mary Pat was instrumental in creating the wonderful and open liaison between the student body and the Innis administration. ~Shared by Robert Patrick (Innis 6T7)

Biscuit Box
Innis College, Hart House Circle

“Our first home – a pre-fabricated one story building constructed in the late 1940s as a temporary bookstore (the SAC building with the observatory in the background adds stature to the image). Inside were offices for the Principal, Robin Harris, Registrar Geoffrey Payzant, Assistant to the Registrar, Mary Pat McMahom, the Writing Lab, the common room, two washrooms, and a cleaning supplies storage closet. From outside it was referred to as the ‘biscuit box’, but from inside as we looked out to the passersby through the floor to ceiling windows, we called it the ‘fishbowl’.” ~Shared by Robert Patrick (Innis 6T7)

The Case

Who could forget the Friday afternoon ‘mock courts’ in the common room? Jack Newman in ‘full flight’ as the defense council in the “missing violin case”. [L to R] Rod Dougherty, Marsha Ablack, and Terry Beveridge (members of the Jury?). ~Shared by Robert Patrick (Innis 6T7)
