Remembered by a grateful College

Dr Anna Drummond College Archivist

In March, the College unveiled a permanent memorial to George Mounsey, groundsman and resident of the College for sixty-five years. At an afternoon tea reception, the Master unveiled the plaque which reads: In memory of George Mounsey (1928-2016), Ormond staff member and resident for 65 years. Loved by generations of students and staff. George's warm friendships, love of football, care for the grounds and tending of the fires will long be remembered by a grateful College. The plaque sits fittingly on the Vestibule fireplace where George lit the fires that warmed generations of students. At the unveiling the Master reflected that George Mounsey was as much a part of the College as any Master or past student and that, like Frank Raleigh, George Mounsey will continue to be remembered and have his story told by Ormondians. The unveiling was attended by a cross-section of the College community including past Masters, past and current staff, and alumni from many decades.
