In 1924, Amy Redpath Roddick donated the Roddick Gates in memory of her late husband, Sir Thomas George Roddick, a renowned doctor and dean of the Faculty of Medicine from 1901 to 1908. Amy Redpath Roddick (May 16, 1868 - February 16, 1954) was the first-born child and only daughter of Ada Mills and John James Redpath. She became the second wife of Thomas Roddick on September 3, 1906.
The Roddick Gates were formally opened by Amy Redpath Roddick on May 28, 1925. The four clocks and Westminster Quarters Strike were made by Seth Thomas and the four bells by Meneely Bell Foundry. In 2010 the clocks were repaired by Electric Time Company and rededicated.  Two other significant buildings at McGill University bear the family name: the Redpath Library and the Redpath Museum.
In Harbour Grace, Newfoundland and Labrador, where Thomas Roddick was born, there is a Roddick fountain.
