Fred H. Harvie and Sascha Jane Patterson Harvie

This chair was established in 2007 in memory of Sascha Jane Patterson Harvie by her late husband, Fred H. Harvie, a professor of Pediatrics at Penn. They were both born in Ontario, Canada, and Sascha studied fine arts at the University of Toronto. The Harvies’ desire for this chair was to support a faculty member who had an impact on reducing tension between people of different faiths and cultural backgrounds.
