Bust of Father Haus Unveiled

A bust of Rev. Robert A. Haus, S.J., professor emeritus of mathematics and statistics, was unveiled on Wednesday, December 12 at 10 a.m. in the Office of Residence Life. The bust was created by Ellen O. Conley, PhD, vice president for student affairs and will be on display in the Office of Residence Life.

Made from clay, the bust took several months to complete. Conley has been sculpting busts as a hobby for approximately four years. She created a series of sculptures that include busts of well-known Canisius Jesuits, including former Canisius President Rev. Vincent M. Cooke, S.J. (on display in the library) and Moderator of Athletics Rev. Father Dugan, S.J. (on display in the Office of Residence life).
