Canadian ambassador donates $3 million to Carleton

November 21, 2007

William Barton, Canada's ambassador to the UN, has announced that $3 million of his estate will go to Carleton University.  This is the 3rd largest individual donation in the school's history, and will be used to create an endowment to support arms control and disarmament students through the international relations program. Mr. Barton served in the army during WWII, and then moved to Ottawa and worked as a researcher for the Defence Department before joining the foreign service.
