  • Attributions and conjectures: This logo was used to identify and highlight the many events which celebrated Bishop's 150th anniversary, December 1993. "The logo uses as its main point of departure the Bishop's mitre, a symbol of the University. The shape of the mitre is repeated 15 times, representing the 15 decades of the university's existence and the resulting design represents a flower suggesting opening of the intellect." Pamela Gill Eby

Biographical history

Pamela Gill Eby was born and raised in London, Ontario. She continued her studies at the University of Western Ontario, receiving a Bachelor of Music in 1974 and Bachelor of Education in 1977.
Eby taught elementary school and music in Perth County, Ontario from 1977-1981. In 1982, she continued her organ studies in Paris (Rueil-Malmaison), France. In 1984, she moved to Waterville, Québec with her husband, Professor Jack Eby, who started teaching at Bishop's University.
Pamela Gill Eby taught at Bishop's as well, as an organ tutor, instructor for the School of Education (Arts in the Classroom) and as a tutor/consultant in the Writing Centre.
Mostly self-taught in the early years of her visual arts career, Eby also took art history and studio courses at Bishop's Fine Arts department and worked extensively alongside Eastern Townships artist Kay Kinsman. Back in France for the years 1993-94, Pamela took the opportunity to study life drawing in Paris (Viroflay), France.
Although Eby's preferred materials are watercolours, pen, ink, and soft pastels, she generously offered her talents to design the 1993 Sesquicentennial stained glass window for Bishop's University that is now part of the Bishop’s University Art Collection.
