Lorraine Douglass

As the Secretary to the Dean of the law school at UBC in the late 1970s, Lorraine was appreciated by both faculty and students. During her time at UBC, Lorraine extended her love of the law school and UBC by establishing the Lorraine Douglass Prize in Real Estate Law, for students who have obtained high academic standing in Real Estate or Condominium Law coursework. This endowment has helped over 18 law students to date.

Born and raised in Sydney, Australia, Lorraine developed a love for travelling at a very young age. For both business and pleasure, she traveled extensively, and even lived briefly in London, Paris, Montreal, Turkey and even the jungles of East Pakistan.

With each new destination, Lorraine would immerse herself within its unique art and culture, and as an artist herself, began to collect a series of iconic pieces. At UBC, she enrolled in a series of classes including watercolor, oil, printmaking, calligraphy, and even jewelry-making.

For over 40 years, Lorraine called Killarney Manor in Kitsilano home as the President of their tight-knit community and strata council. Today, the walls of this iconic building still showcase Lorraine’s warm and eclectic nature as a lover of art and community.

Lorraine passed away peacefully, surrounded by her closest friends on July 2nd, 2019 at the age of 93.
