Sad News for NPSIA and MIPIS

We received this announcement today:

The Carleton University community is saddened to learn of the death of Edgar Wayne Boone, who was one of two individuals killed in a multi-vehicle car/motorcycle crash near Belleville on Saturday afternoon.

“Professor Boone was instrumental in helping to establish the Master’s in Infrastructure Protection and International Security, a joint initiative of the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering and the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs at Carleton,” said Dr. Peter Ricketts, provost and vice-president (Academic). “After his retirement, Wayne made valuable contributions to the program as an adjunct research professor in NPSIA.”

Wayne joined Carleton on July 1, 2009 and retired from his position on June 30, 2014.

The university extends its condolences to his spouse Sherain Boone and their two children. Funeral service details will be shared once confirmed by the family.

It is with heavy heart that we post this news here.  While Wayne just recently left our program, he still was viewed as a core member of the NPSIA community.  He will be missed.
