Donate in memory of Dr. Hans Möller
Since the Foundation is a NGO, revenue from memberships, gala benefits, and donations make up a substantial percentage of our grant funding. Additional donations would be most graciously appreciated and are fully tax-duductable.
We are graciously accepting donations in Dr. Hans Möller’s memory, who served for many years as President of the Canadian-Scandinavian Foundation (CSF), dedicating himself to raising funds to help young people in Canada travel to the Nordic countries for study or research.
Hans Möller (1918 – 2015)
Almost age 97, Hans died peacefully at his home on Sept. 7, 2015 in the presence of his wife Jane Yaple-Möller and step-son / care-giver Derek Yaple-Schobert. Left to mourn in Arizona, Denmark, Norway & Ontario: daughters Bodil & Lise; sons Arne (Ulla), Claus (Elisabeth) & Paul (Lorraine); grandchildren Andreas, Erik, Iben, Krista, Line, Mari, Martin (Anette) & Siri; great-grandchildren Alva, Live & Vilfred.
Born in Denmark, Dr. Möller obtained a Ph.D. in Danish Language & Literature from the University of Copenhagen & became Research Librarian at the Copenhagen Royal Library, including the department containing Hans Christian Andersen’s manuscripts. During WWII, he participated in Denmark’s massive saving of their Jews, i.e. secretly transporting hand grenades and illegal newspapers for the Resistance. In 1955, he came to Canada as Executive Producer at the National Film Board. In 1974, he became Chief Librarian at Ottawa University. From 1977 onwards, he worked as Librarian, Professor of Scandinavian Literature and Director of Libraries at McGill University in Montreal. He also enjoyed teaching Danish & editing scholarly books in the FONTANUS series, which he founded.
For many years, Hans served as President of the Canadian-Scandinavian Foundation (CSF), dedicating himself to raising funds to help young people in Canada travel to the Nordic countries for study or research. A donation in Hans’s memory to the CSF would be deeply appreciated.
Since Hans bequeathed his body to science at McGill, a remembrance celebration for all of Hans’ friends will he held at a later date. – Click here to see more
