MO SHUILE TOGAM SUAS
In the Spring of 1966 I was asked to temporarily take the place of Dr. Armstrong's secretary who was ill and off work for a few months. In my interview with Dr. Armstrong we discussed my Irish birth and knowledge of the Gaelic language. He believed that with Calgary's Scottish heritage, name and location, a suitable 'motto' should be in Scottish gaelic which is much the same as the Irish and as part of my work with him I researched the correct gaelic for the 121st. Psalm, "I will lift up my eyes to the hills ..." so "Mo Shuile Togam Suas" became the new University's motto.
