Sylvia Fedoruk, former University Chancellor and professor emeritus of oncology, has been appointed Chancellor Emeritus, a designation she shares with just two other people. 

The University Board of Governors approved the appointed Feb. 9 for Fedoruk who served as Chancellor from 1986-1989 before being installed at this province’s 17th Lieutenant Governor.  In addition to her term as Chancellor, she was a member of the board from 1996-2005.

The Chancellor Emeritus title is also held by Ted Turner, who served in the position from 1989-1995, and Peggy McKercher, chancellor from 1995-2001.

Fedoruk was appointed professor emeritus after a distinguished 35-year career at the U of S.  Her best-known contribution was as a member of the team that developed the Cobalt-60 Beam Therapy Unit, called the Cobalt Bomb, which went into use in the Saskatoon Cancer Centre Aug. 17, 1951.  Over the next 21 years, the unit was used to treat 6,728 patients in the fight against cancer.  It is still on view at the centre.
