William Thomas Molloy (BA'64, LLB'64), a Saskatoon lawyer, federal treaty negotiator and member of the College of Arts & Science Alumni of Influence, has been named the next Lieutenant-Governor of Saskatchewan.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced the appointment on Jan. 22.

Molloy, an officer of the Order of Canada and a recipient of the Saskatchewan Order of Merit, was the lead negotiator in talks that led to the creation of Nunavut in 1993. He concluded the historic Nisga'a treaty settlement in 2000 in British Columbia and was involved in claims negotiations with First Nations in nine other provinces and territories.

Molloy obtained his bachelor of arts from the College of Arts & Science in 1964 along with a law degree from the College of Law the same year.
