The 2011 Bryden Alumni Award for Pinnacle Achievement goes to: Clayton Ruby!
Pinnacle Achievement: A graduate who has achieved true distinction in their field and whose integrity and ability inspires alumni, faculty, staff and students.
Clayton Ruby (BA '63): A passion for social justice makes Clayton one of Canada's leading defence lawyers. A member of York's first graduating class, Ruby earned a BA when the new University was still located at Glendon. His remarkable legal career has often placed him in the public spotlight. He represented both Donald Marshall Jr. and Guy Paul Morin, two of this country's best-known victims of wrongful conviction, and also negotiated a settlement for the surviving Dionne quintuplets. Equally passionate as a defender of freedom of expression and environmentalism, Clayton Ruby epitomizes York's ideal of enlightened, active engagement with the world in which we live.
