wnttw* Change, Growth and Strength
Most organizations today have become accustomed to operating
efficiently in the midst of constant change.The Alumni Association
is no exception.This has been a year of great change, and yet we
have had one of our most productive years ever.
The most profound change is that Deborah Apps, our Executive
Director since 1987, has left us. She has
accepted a new appointment as Director of
External Relations at Crofton House School. It
is with regret but with sincere congratulations
that I wish Deborah the very best in this new
position. She steered the Association through
some very difficult years with an outstanding
combination of resolve, commitment and tact.
One of Deborah's great strengths was her
ability to maintain consistency in both the
philosophical and service delivery areas, while
helping a new president every year articulate
his or her particular vision for the Association.
To do that successfully takes a very special person.
We are very fortunate to have Agnes Papke in our organization. As well
as being a UBC grad (BSc(Agr)'66), she has served as Associate Executive
Director since 1990. She has agreed to take on the ultimate responsibility as
our new Executive Director. She has a full understanding of the Association in
its dual role as supporter of the university and as provider of service to our
membership. We are confident Agnes will continue the work that Deborah
Apps has begun, and use her strengths to help the Association grow in new
areas. To both Deborah and Agnes, I express my sincere appreciation and
best wishes.
Other changes have occurred this past year. We are negotiating our first
contract with CUPE local 2905, the same local that represents employees at
UBC. Negotiations, especially for first contracts, are complex and time
consuming, but we are confident we will come out of the experience as a
stronger, more efficient organization.
We established a faculty-based model for delivery of alumni services this
year, and while we are still fine-tuning the model, it promises to be most
successful. Two years ago, we made a commitment to develop stronger links
with the university, and to gear our programs more directly to university
needs and goals.Through these and other programs, we have honoured that
This is my last letter to you as president of the Association. For all the
constant change, it has been a year of learning and personal growth. Your new
president, Debra Browning, inherits an Association that will continue to
transform. I wish her the best of luck in what promises to be an exciting year.
I would like to express my deepest thanks to the other members of the
Board of Directors for their support and their hard work over the past year.
My thanks go, too, to the Association staff. They have worked hard and long
to deliver the best services to you.

Rowing Stars Return to Henley
—Tour Planned to Famed United Kingdom Regatta Site
In Vancouver sports history, 1954 was a banner year: Roger Bannister
thrilled the crowd at Empire Stadium by edging John Landy in the
Miracle Mile. Unfortunately, the drama of that event overshadowed another amazing gold medal performance by a group of local athletes.
According to the official history ofthe Fifth British Empire and Commonwealth Games, the defeat of a British Crew in rowing on the Vedder
Canal "was the biggest upset ofthe 1954 games ... the crowd was literally stunned by the fantastic victory and was limp from excitement."
Led by UBC and Vancouver Rowing Club coach Frank Read,  "a crew
of green kids from UBC" finished the 2000 metre course two and a half
lengths ahead of England's heavily-favoured Thames Rowing Club before a crowd of 12,000.
A year later the crew (Glen Smith, Mike Harris, Tom Toynbee, Douglas McDonald, Laurie West, Herman Zloklikovits, Ken Drum-mond,
Bob Wilson and new coxswain Carl Ogawaw and spares Bill Hughes and
Phil Kueber) went to England to compete for the first time in the Royal
Henley Regatta. They beat a powerful Russian crew, but finished second
to the U of Pennsylvania in the "Grand Challenge Cup."
Henley is again on the minds of UBC rowers, who are currently wing
for a spot in the boat which will be entered in the 1994 regatta at
Henley July 1-3. In addition, members of that mid '50s star team will be
in attendance to bring back old memories and meet with grads in the
UK. Alumni in the UK can obtain more information by phoning BC

Universities as Agents of Change
A popular conception sees today's university as an ivory tower,
withdrawn from the real world, encumbered by the values and
traditions of another era, resistant to change. Professors are
steeped in musty ideas, departments are mired in politics, and students, lost
in a bureaucracy they can't begin to fathom, are processed out like cookies
from a cookie factory.
The truth bears no similarity to that image.
Since the end of World War II, UBC has
been on a course of consistent adaptation and
change. And in the current period, the rate of
change has been remarkable. Some facts:
•   In the last seven years we have achieved a
one-third renewal rate in our faculty. That
means 5 to 6% percent of our faculty, every
year, are new to UBC. They bring new ideas,
new research and attract new funding. Our
renewal rate is one ofthe best in the country.
• In 1975, our general purpose operating budget was $90 million. Last
year, that budget was $350 million, and our total expenditures reached $700
million. By any measure, that means dynamic growth.
Our recently completed fundraising campaign generated more than
$250 million in new money for UBC. This translates into many new buildings
and facilities, and scores of new chairs, scholarships, bursaries and learning
centres. The campaign has created unprecedented opportunities for UBC.
As an example, our Institute of Asian Research has drawn interest from
universities, academics, business people and governments around the world.
The best researchers and teachers are clamouring to join us because of
UBC's reputation as a world leader in Asian studies.
• UBC's mandate to be an all-things-to-all-people university has
changed. Our mission statement in 1989, which was approved by UBC's
Board and Senate, states that UBC aims to become "a world renowned
institution of higher learning and research." Our research grant income has
increased from $80 million in 1985 to $120 million in 1993. We expect to
reach $150 million by 2000. These totals (which place us among the top
three universities in Canada for research grant income) mean that our
research is ground-breaking. As an indicator of this, UBC is the number one
university in Canada in patent disclosures, and number 13 in North America.
An impressive accomplishment.
The result of these and other developments is that UBC is in a constant
state of change. This doesn't just mean that we adapt to change. It means we
actively cultivate it. Because of that, UBC is a key element in driving change
and growth in the BC economy. Our people are in the forefront of virtually
every business and cultural initiative in this province, from developing new
environmental technologies to forging cultural and business connections with
emerging Asian countries.
In this way, UBC and other universities are not only changing themselves, but are the principle agents of change in our society. And that, after
all, is the purpose of a university.
At UBC, it's part of our tradition.

Dalton BCom'71, president and

uses and abuses in the past but
this spring it will fall into the hands
of renovators who will transform
it into a more functional EUS and
alumni meeting place.The students, the Faculty of Engineering
and the alumni division are sponsoring the renovation so the undergraduates will be assured of
this space in the future.

involved with undergrad design
contests. We are anxious to help
students with funding, technical
assistance and materials. Several
alumni participated in this year's
Ball Model judging.

honour included the founding
Grand Master, Hon. A. Stewart

Agnes Appointed Executive Director
l\gnes Papke, BSc(Agr'66), has been
appointed Executive Director ofthe UBC
Alumni Association.
Agnes may be familiar to grads and
former volunteers as the program coordinator for agriculture alumni programs. She
started in that capacity in 1986, but soon
took on more responsibilities. By 1990, her
ability and efficiency earned her an appointment as Associate Executive Director in
charge of managing all division, awards and
branch programs. She has become an
essential part ofthe Association management team.
Agnes brings a high level of enthusiasm and experience to her
new position. She is committed to improving the performance of all
alumni programs in the most effective way and to delivering first-
class service to members and value to the university.
Staff and volunteers welcome Agnes as the new Executive
Director, and wish her well.
So Long, Deborah
/After seven 7 years as Executive Director,
Deborah Apps has left the Alumni Association to take on new challenges. She has
accepted an appointment as Director of
External Relations at Crofton House School
in Vancouver.
Deborah began her tenure here during a
time when the role ofthe Association was
being scrutinized by volunteers and university administrators alike. With the beginning
ofthe World of Opportunity Campaign, the
Association needed to reassess its services to members and its
connection to the university. During that period, some members felt
the Association should maintain its traditional role, serving its
members and keeping the university at arm's length. Others felt
the Association had to enter the modern period and become more
in tune with the developmental goals ofthe university, and gear its
services more directly to university needs.
Deborah became a master of diplomacy, expertly balancing the
needs of volunteers and members with those ofthe university. While
it seemed, at times, that there was no possible way to please either
end ofthe scale, Deborah managed to maintain a strong Association
within a cooperative university environment. Her legacy to the
Association and the university is a framework of strong program
development and a willingness to change.
She put an indelible stamp on the Association, and she will be
missed bv her team.

I   he faculty has recently received funding for a First Nations Forest
Resources Management Coordinator. This is the first such position in
Canada and probably only the second in North America.The position
was developed by the faculty and the First Nations House of Learning,
with funding from the Vancouver Foundation and the BC Ministry of
Forests for a three year period.The coordinator will develop and implement a program of awareness and recruitment designed to help
First Nations students enter forestry programs at UBC and at other
post-secondary education institutions in BC. Five years ago, there
were no First Nations students enroled in the faculty, although Dave
Walkem, currently Chief of the Cook's Ferry Band near Merritt,
graduated in 1979.This year, four First Nations students are enroled in
the Forest Resources Management degree program and one is enroled
in the Natural Resources Conservation program.This new position
will assist interested students in preparing for and entering natural resource management.
The position is now advertised, and applications will be accepted
up to March 15, 1994. For more inf, please contact Donna Goss, Coordinator of Student Services at the Faculty of Forestry at (604) 822-
and publications.
The Institute will also appoint a Distinguished Professor
who will be a recognized inlellec-
tual leader with broad interests,
creative energy and inlerdisciplinary experience. The Institute
will also sponsor lectures, conferences and oilier events lo the
campus and the commiuiily.
Given its interdisciplinary
focus, the Institute will be associated with Green College, which is
expected to bouse its administrative offices and host many ofthe
Institute's ancillary activities. The
Institute is expected to be operational by April 1, 1996.
Faced with mounting pressure to
deal with violent offenders, the
criminal justice system is seeking expert advice. One concern is high-risk
parole petitioners. Many jurisdictions
in Canada and abroad are turning to
UBC psychology professor Robert
Hare for the answer.
Hare was educated at the University of Alberta and at Western
Ontario. He is known in Canada, the
US and overseas for his development
of the Psychopathy Checklist, an effective predictor of violent behaviour.
His quarter century of research
has provided the basis for a book,
published in 1993, called Without Con-
sc/ence.The DisturbingWorld ofthe Psychopaths Among Us. "Their hallmark,"
he writes, "is a stunning lack conscience; their game is self-gratification at the other person's expense."
Psychopaths are not only found in
prisons. Parents, children, spouses,
lovers, co-workers and unlucky victims everywhere must cope with the
personal chaos and confusion psychopaths cause, and understand what
drives them.
Hare has also developed a program for high-risk offenders. Some of
these, he thinks, are not reformable
and are not likely to benefit from existing rehabilitation programs. Evidence shows that psychopaths use
what they learn from such programs
to increase their manipulating skills.
But a program that tightly controls
the subject and hands out swift punishment for transgressions could
work for some. A targeted rehabilitation program, he thinks, is worth
considering as even a small success
rate could have big dividends.
Professor Hare's program has
been supported by the Medical Research Council, the BC Health Research Foundation and others, but he
is frustrated by inadequate funding.
His work to unravel the mystery of
the psychopath is set back and promising graduate students, whose contributions to the work are essential,
are not recruited.The disorder "is
responsible for far more social distress and disruption than all other
psychiatric disorders combined." But,
he observes, little systemic research
has been devoted to it.
The School has set up a Career
Placement Office, directed by Bob
Reid, Assistant Dean of Admissions and Career Placemen I. The
office will help UBC law students
and grads in planning I heir careers and finding articles, clerkships and permanent and part-
time employment. This is a difficult time for students seeking employment, so the office will play
an important role. The office
works with the Law Students' Association Articling Committee and
the Vancouver Bar Association in
administering the law linn
articling process in Vancouver,
and provides information on
oilier law-related opportunities.
Information is available on provincial bar qualifications, judicial
clerkships, governmental departments and programs, graduate
programs and fellowships, public
interest employers and in-house
counsel employment opportunities. Law students across Canada
have access to the information the
office provides, a practice which,
unfortunately, all other schools do
not follow. Anybody wishing lo
provide information to the Career
Placement Office or to seek information should contact Bob Reid
at 822-3417 (telephone) or 822-
8108 (FAX).
UBC Ait mm Ciiromci.k, Spring 1994 FACULTY NEWS
In December, the faculty hosted
15 executives from the Shanghai
and Pudong areas on our SJTU-
UBC Executive Training program.
This is the seventh Chinese executive training program the faculty
has run in the last several years
with the support of CIDA, the UN
and in partnership with Shanghai
Jiao Tong University (SJTU) and
the Chinese Ministry of Foreign
Trade and Economic Cooperation. The executives attended
classes on international finance,
strategy, marketing, trade agreement and other topics. The program includes visits to Canadian
companies and meetings with
members ofthe BC business community. Dean Goldberg was recently in Asia and met with 150
executive alumni of these programs.
Students have also been busy
promoting awareness of Asia Pacific business opportunities. The
Commerce Undergraduate Society
and the Commerce Graduate So-
cietv joined forces in organizing
an international business conference: "Bridging the Pacific," held
January 14 and 15, at the Waterfront Hotel. Speakers included
Bill Dalton, president and CEO,
Hongkong Bank of Canada;
Howard Ballock, Assistant Deputy
Minister, Asia & Pacific External
Affairs Sc International Trade; Bill
Saywell, president and CEO, Asia
Pacific Foundation; Maureen
Sabia, chairperson. Export Development Corporation; Mark Fruin,
director, Institution of Asian Research, UBC and Maurice Levi,
professor of international finance,
UBC. More than 120 students attended including participants
from Western, McGill and the
University of Alberta. There were
also a number of business and faculty participants.
Preparations are well
underway for the Program for Executive Development offered in
May. This is the seventh of the
three-week residential programs
aimed at mid to senior managers.
The program covers topics in labour-management relations, finance, multinational trade, entre-
prcneurship, strategic management and organizational life, and
draws participants from many
business and government sectors.
Members of the UBC Dental Alumni
Division will remember Alan
"Sedgewick" Richardson. After 25
years of service to the faculty and
university "Big Al" has taken early
retirement and left the faculty at the
end of December.
Dr. Richardson was appointed
in 1968 by Trevor Harrop and the
founding dean, Wah Leung. He progressed through the ranks to professor and served the faculty in a variety of positions including acting department head and clinic director.
We are very pleased that Al will continue to be active in the Admissions
Committee process this year. A dedicated teacher, he always had time for
students and contributed greatly to
the development of the academic and
clinical programs.
Always a friend of and advocate
for the students and resident
jokester, he will be remembered for
a number of things, not the least of
which was surprising unsuspecting
clinic paediatric patients, staff and
students in his annual Hallowe'en
garb. On occasion a gorilla has been
known to stalk the halls of the
Macdonald Building.
Dr. Richardson will continue to
live is Tsawwassen, enjoy being a
grandfather and at last report, two
weeks into retirement, he has barely
been off the golf course.We wish
him well, we shall miss him and there
is no doubt that there will never be
another like"ASR!"
Grads will also remember
fondly Muriel Dyson (dean's office)
and Betty Leung (oral surgery).They
are both taking early retirement, having been with the faculty for more
than 20 years. Over the years they
have been hard working and committed staff members who have assisted
in a variety of important ways for
faculty and students. Again, being

Agricultural Soences
The faculty recently surveyed BSc(Agr) graduates from 1988, 1990 and 1992
to find out what they did after getting their degree, the types of jobs they've
had, how difficult it was to get a career position and the relevance of their undergraduate education.
Questionnaire responses were kept anonymous: an effective return rate
of almost 70% made the results fairly reliable.The relative proportion of responses based on gender and major/area specialty are representative for these
years, with no differences in results between the three graduating years.
Fewer than 3% of grads are unemployed although some are still pursing
further education.There is no apparent gender difference in employment status, but there is a significant variation among majors. Fewer animal science
graduates are employed full-time; many of them are favouring further education, some at the Western College of Veterinary Medicine.
For those who hold or have held jobs that relate to their long term career goals, 53% were hired by a private firm, 22% by federal or provincial
agencies and by 19% by educational institutions. Most found this first career
position within a month. Previous surveys of earlier graduates found more
employed by government, fewer in private industry.
Almost half of these recent graduates started their careers at a technical
level, although this varied considerably depending on area of specialty. Of
those with career positions, 85% indicate that the position is related to their
degree, which is generally relevant to their work.
Those who have held more than one position provided information on
their current position as well as their first job. A shift to more diverse jobs,
fewer technical jobs and more management positions is evident in these cases.
These included such positions as teacher, insurance adjustor extension agent,
sales manager, horticulturalist, researcher, regulatory program developer, environmental consultant, commodity trader, market analyst, government inspector, lawyer, agricultural credit manager, breed development coordinator, international development consultant, quality control technician and others. However, 76% still say that their current position is related to their undergraduate
Most graduates remain in BC but a greater number than ever are deployed internationally. For example, replies came in from a project administrator with a relief organization in Malawi, and from a food scientist in Hong
Kong. Moreover, faculty graduates are increasingly working in positions related
to resource management, the environment and sustainable development, '*'

Statement: UBC has been a large
part of our lives. I spend a lot of time
on campus—whether it is to use the
libraries or pool, attend Thunderbird
football or basketball games, go to
meetings or simply walk around. It's
fascinating to see all the new buildings and to reminisce about those that
are no longer there, like the Bus Stop
Cafeteria. We must keep the traditions alive, but we must also look for
ways to make the university better.
Alumni are an important and often under-utilized resource. As an association, we must not only inform our
members about what is happening on
campus but encourage feedback on
ways to improve what is happening.
UBC alumni are everywhere and in
all walks of life.They should be used
to market the university as well as to
offer commentary on existing programs. The university is not only a
place where you spend a few years;
you should feel welcome to participate. I would like to work towards
making the university part of everyone's community.

Statement: Recently, UBC has experienced many changes in its physical form and administrative focus. As
a result, the Association has faced
various challenges and has struggled
to find a balance between maintaining its independence, while offering
the university the support, knowledge
and guidance that it has historically
provided. In seeking this balance, a
critical role of the Association has
been to ensure communication between alumni and the university. One
of the most effective ways to foster
close relationships between these
groups has been through the Alumni
Association Divisions Program. Divisions are often closely tied to a faculty, school or department and
achieve communication through special events, professional development
programs and newsletters. They represent many Lower Mainland alumni.
I believe divisions are the grass roots
of the Association. As a member of
the Long Range Planning and Transition Cue., I had the chance to be part
of articulating a vision for the Association in defining its role with the
university. Alumni are an important
stakeholder at UBC, and I hope to
continue my involvement and commitment to the alumni of UBC as a member of the Board of Directors.

Statement: I had the honour of being elected as Member-at-Large ofthe
Alumni Association at a very turbu
lent period in its history.The university administration had served notice
that it was in effect taking over the
Association, and relations between
the two bodies hit an all-time low.
Now, two years later, I am happy to
report that much of the tension has
eased. The university has recognized
theAssociation's right to exist and the
Long Range Planning Ctte. has
mapped out a strategy to allow the
Association to carry out its activities
in support of the university's goals.
The two major challenges facing the
Association now are I) successfully
implementing the new program delivery model and 2) delivering the programs efficiently as the financial resources of the Association actually
shrink. I am asking for your support
for a second term as Member-at-Large
as I believe that continuity on the
Board over this period is important. I
am ready to offer my time and energy to help the Association make a
smooth transition to its new role.

Fraser Basin:
Sustaining Life
in a Busy Waterway
Every Monday morning John Doe fills his childrens' reusable lunch bags
with disposable juice and yogurt containers. At the same time, his wife,
Joan, fills the blue recycling box with unread newspapers and product
packaging. Although they leave at the same time and work only 20 minutes
apart, they kiss goodbye and hop into their separate cars to commence the dailv bumper-
to-bumper crawl past billboards promoting public transport and car pooling.
"Most people feel strongly about preserving the environment," savs Michael Healey,
Director of UBC's Westwater Research Centre "but their day-to-day decisions are
Finding out why is the focus of one ofthe 20 Fraser River projects that make up the
Basin Ecosystem Study (BEST). Along with five other multi-disciplinary environmental
studies at Canadian universities, BEST is currently in its second of three years of federal
What is the state ofthe Fraser basin? What can we do about it? The Westwater Centre,
in collaboration with the Sustainable Development Research Institute and 13 UBC departments of natural and social sciences is seeking to answer these questions and provide solutions to environmental problems in the lower Fraser
River basin.
The Fraser basin from Hope to the river mouth is
ideal for this study because, says Healey, "it's large

Illustrations by Hargot Dear
jHromci i:, Spkim. 1994 enough to give a broad look at the issues, small
enough to be manageable, and has a growth rate among the
fastest in North America." Growth poses a threat to the quality of life
along the river, but also lets researchers study major problems in a
microcosm and build a widely-applicable model of sustainability.
"Ihe study has four components," says Healey. The first three
concern geographic boundaries: urban centres, rural areas, and rivers. The fourth component synthesizes information from the other
three. "Ihe urban component, aimed at creating a blueprint for a
healthy and sustainable community, grew out of an existing task force
in Richmond.
"Richmond takes up so many square metres of actual land," says
Bob Woollard, urban component leader and acting head of Family
Practice, Faculty of Medicine. "But, in fact, it takes much more space
to sustain a community like Richmond. For example, oranges eaten
in Richmond take up growing space in Florida." The real space required to maintain a community's standard of living is called its
ecological footprint.
Richmond's ecological footprint is 27 times larger than the city
itself. "If we apply this to the rest ofthe world," savs Woollard, "we'd
need two and a half more planets to sustain the earth—food for
thought the next time you're in Starbuck's drinking Kenyan coffee."
Understanding the ecological footprint helps people make decisions such as zoning for highrises rather than townhouses, or building superhighways instead of improving public transit. But to be effective, says Woollard, it must be paired with another tool: social caring capacity. Consisting of principles such as equity, diversity and
connectedness, this concept helps people understand what makes a
community desirable, and then measure a place like Richmond "in
terms other than gross domestic product and interest rates."
East of Richmond lie hundreds of square miles of rich farm land.
But even there, where the air smells clean and the soil is moist and
black, the environment is being degraded by inadequate cycling of
substances critical to its ecology. Nitrogen, for example, occurs naturally and is essential to crop cultivation. But in the past century in
creased nitrogen from manure fertilizer, fossil fuel
combustion, and waste from a burgeoning population has
created an overload that is contaminating the environment.
As part of the study's rural component, says Healey, "we are drawing boxes, with arrows showing the travel of nitrogen from one part of
the environment to another, and measuring the rates of transfer between the boxes." By measuring the amount of nitrogen going into
the environment, and evaluating the length of time required for it to
cycle through each box and out of the ecosystem, researchers—who
are using similar models with carbon and one or two pesticides—
hope to determine the level of input the environment can sustain
without damage.
Several ofthe river projects are also examining the sources and
fates of environmental contaminants. Some are exploring the consequences of using water as a waste repository, and others are studying
the impact of dykes and dams on fish populations.
Most ofthe river projects focus on tributaries like the Brunette,
Sumas and Matsqui Rivers, whose size belies their importance. Says
Healey, "because of their coho production, many smaller streams
form the mainstay of the sport fishery in Georgia Strait. But some
already have been lost to development. This knowledge allows us a
choice: to retain our rivers as salmon habitat, or convert them into
storm sewers."
There is also room for the social scientist in the study ofthe Eraser
River basin. And while natural scientists working with fish
populations or nitrogen dynamics fit easily into the study's geographic structure, social scientists are less tied to place and can see
the basin as a whole.
Neil Guppy, a sociology professor and river margins component
leader, is involved in two such projects.
The first project, co-coordinated by Guppy and Don Blake, head
of political science, is assessing the degree to which environmental
ideas, attitudes and behaviours are shared among diverse communities, such as labour, business, government and environmental groups.
"Where is the harmony, where is the dissonance?" says Guppy. "This
may help us decide which approach is best: the carrot, or the stick
when policy is being decided."
For the second project, Guppy and colleagues Brian Elliott and
Neil Blake are examining the environmental impact of population
size, composition and distribution. This is not only a problem of in-

about preserving the
environment, but their
day-to-day decisions are
creasing numbers, says Guppy, but of diverse
cultures perceiving the environment dilfer-
Cultural perception is central to Michael
Kew. Native issues project leader and associate professor of anthropology, and his colleague, Bruce Miller, whose work focuses on
the basin's aboriginal population. Although
only 6,000 aboriginal people are registered
with the area's 29 bands, says Kew, "one can
argue logically and morally that, despite
their small numbers, their interest is primary.
They've been here the longest. They intend
to stay. We're the nomads."
With the help of two graduate students
(including one First Nations student), Kew
and Miller are compiling data on the area's
aboriginal populations, reserve histories and
land holdings, as well as current resource
use. iMost important will be an assessment of
planned use ofthe resources and the implications of land claims. Although no one can
predict the outcomes of settlements, any
planning for the area must take First Nations'
interests into account.
While these projects seek answers to
what-have-we-got and what-do-we-want questions, others are addressing issues of what-
we-can-have and how-we-can-get-it. For one,
researchers are scaling people's perceptions
of risk by helping them understand the
choices thev would have to make when confronted with an environmental threat. Another is gathering groups of citizens together
to discuss the tradeoffs needed if, for example, clean swimming water becomes a high
priority. Healey even envisions a video game
in which players "battle environmental problems, instead of giants or monsters, providing a quick way of seeing the consequences
of different choices."
But individuals are only part ofthe problem, fn another project, investigators are
studying the way public agencies evolve in
the face of conflict, to determine the input
required to force institutional change. "Do
we need to drive a Mac truck through the
front door and have a bunch of guerrillas
with AK47s jump out," asks Healev, "or is
there some process, short of revolution, by
which we can persuade social and educational institutions to change?"
One of the things this project is about,
says Healev, is providing enough information
for people to make informed choices.
But ultimately, he says, "there are no
right choices. People make mistakes all the
time; we just have to hope they're not
irreversible." This study guarantees no positive outcomes, nor is it attempting to change
anyone's beliels.
What it might do is demonstrate that
there is no planning process, no proper application of information and techniques that
will solve environmental problems. It might
help people see the need to make sacrifices,
show them that some paths are potentially
more disastrous than others. "If we can
accomplish that much," says Healey, "then
perhaps we'll have made a contribution." ^
The Forest and the Trees
I he Basin Ecosystem Study Is bringing together researchers from anthropology to zoology,
botany to soil science and social work to community planning.This multidisciplinary mix has
advantages and disadvantages. "We spend a lot of time learning to talk to each other without the
jargon used among experts who share a discipline," Mike Healey says. But learning new ways to
communicate is a good thing.
"To describe this work as challenging would be an understatement," says Neil Guppy. "It
forces me to expand my intellectual horizons." It's an experience requiring participants to look
beyond those horizons without abandoning them, adds Michael Kew. Ironically, the same situations that pose obstacles sometimes allow researchers to perceive other disciplines more clearly
than their own, says Bob Woollard,"letting us see the forest and the trees simultaneously."
This almost poetic enthusiasm for an endeavour that is nothing if not cumbersome is no
accident. "If people are going to take on an investment ofthis size," says Healey, "they need to get
something positive out of it." To ensure this, each project has been designed so that every
investigator is at the cutting edge of the discipline; each is doing work he or she would be happy
to do individually, and may pursue independently after the study is over. In this way, Healey hopes
the researchers, particularly grad students, will be eager to do more multidisciplinary work.
Woollard agrees. "The shift towards specialization that happened at the beginning ofthis
century has reached its limits," he says. As we approach the next century, "we have to put things
back together. If this project does nothing more than train a new generation of academics to look
at complex problems in a less dissective, more constructive way, I think we will have accomplished a great deal." LM

Opinions of colleagues match the first
impression of Dr. David Sweet's gentle manner and reports of his considerable skill.
"David Sweet has been described as the
Wayne Gretzsky of forensic dentistry," says
Chico Newell, the coroner in charge ofthe
Burnabv-based Forensic Identification Unit
(Provincial Coroner's Service, Ministry ofthe
Attorney General).
Newell first worked with Sweet in 1988.
They were asked to examine the remains of
two people who had been incinerated in a
fire in a pickup truck. There was little left in
the way of identifiable remains, but Sweet
was able to reassemble parts of the dental
structure. Alter comparing" these reconstructions against dental records, he was able to
make positive identifications ofthe victims.
The deaths were determined as "murder/

victims of violent crime. "A tremendously
talented guy," continues Newell. "Thorough,

methodical and gifted. It's as if he was born
to do this type of work."
Given Sweet's success in his chosen field
-which includes cutting edge research into
the use of dental DNA as courtroom evidence - Newell's summation is apt. However,
it took several years for the now f'ortv-vear-
old Sweet to arrive at this conclusion himself.
Sweet graduated from UBC's Facultv ol
Dentistry in 1978. For the next six vears he
ran a dental practice in Cranbrook: a quiet
life, where work was balanced by time spent
with his family, trout-fishing and skiing.
A bit too quiet.
"I love the cultural life ofthe city," says
Sweet, who was pleased to return to Vancouver in 1984 to accept a full-time appointment at the faculty. He is currently course
coordinator for the Division of Oral Diagnosis, and Director of Patient Management in
the undergrad program. The majority ol his
time, he says, is devoted to instruction, with
research and administrative responsibilities
rounding out his schedule. Ofthe three,
Sweet says he enjoys teaching the most.

-Headline from the Snohomish County, Washington Herald, February 13, 1992
It was the type of sensational headline guaranteed to attract wide attention, both in the quiet
Washington State county where the death of two-year-old Kayla Erlandson occurred, and north
of the border in Vancouver. David Sweet was contacted and asked to testify on behalf of the
prosecution in the second-degree murder case against Noreen Marie Erlandson.
In a report submitted to the King County Medical Examiner, Sweet wrote:"A pattern injury
identified as a human bite mark had been found at the left inferio-lateral aspect of the neck of
the decedent's body during a forensic autopsy. Photographs of the injury site had been obtained
along with dental study casts of several persons who had access to the victim at approximately
the time of the injury."
Sweet's conclusion: "The pattern characteristics of the overall shape of the injury match the
shape of this [Noreen Erlandson] suspect's dentition and the individual abrasions from specific
teeth match the unusual characteristics of the chipped incisal edges of the upper and lower anterior teeth of the suspect." He further noted that "... there are enough points of similarity to conclude that the teeth of  Suspect B' are consistent with causing the injury observed on the victim."
A twenty-page coroner's report, detailing a savage history of physical abuse, coupled with Dr.
Sweet's findings, lead to a verdict of "guilty, as charged." Noreen Erlandson is now serving a forty-
year sentence in a Washington State prison. •

science of solving forensic mysteries.
"It was different, exotic," says Sweet, of
his initial decision to study forensic dentistry.
"A bit frightening in the beginning, but you
learn to focus on the science, and on your
The discipline of forensic odontology' is
devoted to identifying people by means of
their unique dentition. There are two distinct
areas within the discipline: identification of
the deceased, and identification of living
suspects to bite marks in material such as
human tissue, foods or wax (bite marks are
also found on the perpetrators of crimes,
who have been bitten by their victims in self-
defense). When Sweet is contacted by the
coroner's office to assist in the identification
of a murder victim, he is acting as a consultant. The case itself is the responsibility ofthe
police agencies involved.
According to Sweet, Canada does not
have a formal academic or professional diploma/certificate program in forensic dentistry. To obtain his speciality certification,
Sweet went to the University of Louisville,
Kentucky, where he successfully challenged
the specialty board examination in 1991. His
areas of expertise include the correct recovery and handling of forensic dental evidence,
and the dental identification of incinerated
human remains.
The research Sweet is currently conducting, in the process of working toward a PhD
in Forensic Medicine from the University of
Granada, Spain, focuses specifically on the
analysis of saliva for DNA testing. Semen,
vaginal fluid, blood and other human tissues
and organs have been accepted as sources of
DNA testing and used as evidence in rape
and homicide cases, and in paternity suits,
since the late 1980s. DNA evidence from saliva, says Sweet, is still one or two years away
from being presented in courts of law.
"I compare forensic dentistry to the process of reading a *who-dun-it' and doing a
crossword puzzle at the same time," says
Sweet, who admits, not surprisingly, to reading the crime fiction of such authors as Sue
Grafton and ,\nn Rule during his scarce off-
work hours.
UBC All AIM ClIROMCIK, Sl'KIM,   1994 New Dean of Dentistry Appointed
XLdwin Yen has been appointed dean of UBC's Faculty of Dentistry.
Yen graduated with his DDS from McGill in 1973, then completed
post grad studies in Orthodontics and a PhD in Oral Biology at the
University of Toronto.
He began his academic career at U of T as a lecturer, then
joined the University of Manitoba in 1978 as an associate professor
in the Department of Preventive Dental Science. He became head
ofthe department in 1987.
In announcing the appointment, Dan Birch, UBC's VP Academic, said that Yen has
successfully combined teaching and quality research while maintaining clinical credibility.
Yen, said Birch, enjoys an international reputation as a scientist studying the fundamental
processes underlying the tissue changes that accompany othodontically induced tooth
"The research is both intellectually and technically demanding, he said. "The quality
of the work and its relevance was quickly recognized by the research community, resulting
in continuous grant support from the Medical Research Council since 1970."
Yen replaces Marcia Boyd, a professor of clinical dental sciences, who was appointed
dean pro tern in 1992.
For Sweet, however, forensic dentistry is
more than the intricate, intellectual challenge of providing answers to questions that
few people would have the courage or desire
to ask in the first place. Faced regularly with
the profoundly disturbing evidence of humankind's violent nature, Sweet has had to
put as much thought into the moral dimensions of his science as he has into the technical aspects.
"I believe we all have a basic human right
to an identity," says Sweet, "and this doesn't
change in the event of death."
There is also an element Sweet refers to
as "moral certainty."
"Canadian law enforcement officials -
particularly the RCMP - have an international reputation for a high level of decorum
and professionalism," says Sweet. This respect has also been accorded to him, says
Sweet, on the occasions when he has been
asked to testify as an expert witness in countries other than Canada. Sweet takes great
care to measure up to these expectations.
"When I present evidence in a court of
law," Sweet explains, "I am often looking
directly at an individual who has been
charged with the crime of murder. It can be a
difficult experience. I have to be one hundred percent certain of my conclusions."
Sweet works with both defense and pros
ecution lawyers. When requested to testify on
behalf of the defense counsel, his testimony
may or may not support the defendant's
case. He does not, as other witnesses might,
offer general observations, but rather a meticulous examination of the evidence he has
analyzed. In other words, he is a neutral witness.
Which does not mean he feels neutral,
particularly in cases of child abuse and violence against older people.
"Those are the hardest for me," he says.
"You learn to disconnect yourself- you have
to - and to keep a sense of humour."
To reduce further the stresses of his work,
Sweet also focuses on the big picture. He
provides information to police to enable
them to lay criminal charges, and to the
courts, where guilt or innocence becomes a
judicial process.
In a fundamental way, Sweet's work is a
naming: identification, for the women and
men whose voices are taken from them
through a violent act; dignity, for those who
die in great numbers, but deserve individual
mourning; recognition, for the last call for
help from an abused child.
A re-christening of sorts, by a professional who respects each record of life he
holds in his hands. W

George Woodcock
arrives & a real
birders treat
Mating in Captivity by Genni Gunn BFA'82,
MFA'84 (Quarry, paper, unpriced) is a book of
prose poems that plays with some interesting
ideas. I liked the idea of dividing the main theme
into five sections
with titles like Natural Habitat, and The
Hunt. The variations-
on-a-theme poems
are particularly successful. I enjoyed the
notion of travelling
around and around a
past event, with each
poem capturing a
facet. "Variations on Silence" works especially
well, with its combination of sharp images, sensual detail and emotion. Gunn is at her best with
poems like # 8 in this series. "Your father's presence lingers in the half-filled cup, the open book,
the grey worn cardigan which hangs, limp, on a
chair back. He could be out for a stroll, or writing
in his study while your mother lies, sedated, in
their room and cries." Unified metaphor transforms this dense work into something more resonant than a couple of lines can indicate.
On the downside, Gunn is evasive. She hints
at things and does not follow them up. I finished
the book, then read the dust jacket and thought,
is that what it was supposed to be about? Hmm.
My personal bias in poetry is for either a narrative thread or dazzling language. Whichever—and
some poets do both—the reader is happy to be
left with a sense of the poem biting its own tail, a
pleasing feel of closure.Too many of these poems
are fragments.
Gunn's work is strongest when she opens
fully to her potent imagination. Zoe Landale
The Great Dragon's Fleas by Tim Ward
BA'82 (Somerville House Publishing, $19.95, paper) is a remarkably handsome book with thick
pages, ruffled edges and a good cover. What's inside is also a pleasure. After six years of faith,
Ward, a born-again evangelical Christian, thinks
there may be more to life than Western perspective. He sets off for Asia to explore its spiritual
traditions: the dragons he is after are metaphysical. His journey takes him two years and there
are hysterically funny scenes with holy men, police officers, seers and assorted odd characters.
Ward searches through India, Bangladesh, Indone
sia, Thailand and Tibet, for something pure, profound and true. What he comes up with is never
quite what he, and we, would hope.
One of the saddest chapters takes place in
India with the "living god" Sai Baba. Ward, sceptical but eternally hopeful, goes to investigate.
Does Sai Baba really perform miracles? The ridiculous and touching carryings-on at the ashram
and the "greasy fingers cafe" outside its gates are
a microcosm ofthe book. Much is hoped for and
tantalizingly little found.
One thing Ward takes utterly for granted,
but that I found remarkable, is his facility for languages. Wherever he
goes, he learns not only
sufficient to get by, but
enough to discuss religion. He talks with people in markets, goes into
their homes, converses
with monks throughout
Asia about Buddhism.
Buddhism is really the
focus of his quest.The
other weird and wonderful questions, like did Jesus really emigrate to Kashmir after the crucifixion?
are delicious sidetracks.
This is a thoroughly entertaining book, and if
the tone  darkens by the time we reach Tibet
with Ward, well, it brings us back to the real
world. ZL
A Labour of Love: The Making ofthe Museum
of Anthropology by Audrey Hawthorn
DLit(Hon)'86, $9.95.To many visitors, the most
exciting place on the UBC campus is the Museum
of Anthropology. Its collection of indigenous art
and artifacts is among the best in the world, its
layout is inviting and dynamic, and its setting is
magnificent. A Labour of Love recounts the history of the museum from the perspective of
Hawthorn, who was its driving force from 1947
to 1976, when the its current home, the Arthur
Erickson designed building, was opened.
Hawthorn's vitality and vision are reflected
in every aspect of the museum, and the book
provides a fascinating insight into the creation of
this complex and successful institution.The book
is filled with historical photos from the first displays in 1947 to the visit, in 1993, of Bill Clinton
and Boris Yeltsin.The strength ofthis book is its
historical context. It outlines the difficulties facing
22       UBC An mm Chronicle, Spring 1994 arts administrators during the forties and fifties,
and makes us realize that times, at least in that
industry, have not changed much.
While the book is an important record and
an interesting read, it's too bad there wasn't a
bigger budget for production.The few colour
photos of items in the collection are grainy and
badly reproduced, and many samples are poorly
lit. Some of the black and white photos are very
faint. Samples of masks, cloth, carvings and totems would have been much more effective in
colour, especially if they were professionally photographed. If ever there was a subject crying out
for the coffee table treatment, this was it. While
the book captures the nuts-and-bolts essence of
the museum, it captures little of its spirit. Buy the
book, then tour the museum.

Various plovers, sandpipers, curlews, turnstones,
etc., often don't have much to separate them, at
least to the untrained eye.This book, with its superb photos, first-class silhouette images and interesting text, should go a long way to solving
that problem for novices and experts alike.
The book covers shorebirds from the northern tip ofVancouver Island to southern Oregon,
and from the west coast to the Continental Divide. Produced in conjunction with the Seattle
Audubon Society, it's a beautiful start to what this
bird watcher hopes is a continuing series.
Wouldn't it be great to see such a book on the
sparrow family? Or the warblers? Or the Woodpeckers? Or the ... ? CP
A Passion for Narrative: A Guide for Writing
Fiction by Jack Hodgins. (McClelland and
Stewart) Who hasn't said after reading a Stephen
King novel,"Pshaw — I could do that!" It's a phenomenon not lost on the publishers of self-help
books, because every bookstore has at least one
solid shelf of "How To Write Fiction," and the books
sell briskly. Just because
nearly everyone learns
to write in school,
nearly everyone thinks
he or she is a good
writer. Wrong. Good
writing, like good anything, takes skill, practice and lots of very
hard work.
So why another
writer's book? This one's good, that's why. It doesn't
pull punches ("Writing is VERY hard work," it says,
and "Don't blame me if no one will ever publish
your work."), and it's full of excellent examples,
hard-as-hell exercises and a reading list long enough
to take one well into old age.
The book takes the reader through analysis of
setting, plot, character, structure and voice, and
gives some great insight into where stories come
Probably the very best writers' self-help books
are those written by the late American writer John
Gardner.This volume is altogether as good as
Jack Hodgins is a first class novelist himself, in
case you didn't know, and has won many awards for
his work, including the Governor General's Award.
Take a look at Spit Delaney's Island or his most recent novel, Over Forty in Broken Hill. CP
George Woodcock
Gets Venerable
George Woodcock, who turned 80 a couple
of years ago, was never a student of our
hallowed uni, but he left his mark. A pal of
the father of our Department of Creative
Writing, Earle Birney, Woodcock was the
founding editor of Canadian Literature, a
venerable UBC icon in its own right.
Woodcock made his biggest contribution, however, to a large number of writers
at the time, many of them UBC students,
who saw societal salvation in the political far
left, and who admired his determined ability
to succeed while remaining steadfastly
outside the mainstream. He was a role
model to an entire generation and a tireless
supporter of Canada and Canadian writers.
Well, George is being honoured by his
peers.A reception is being organized for May
7 after the 10th Annual BC Book Prizes Gala
(hosted by Pierre Berton, who DID graduate
from here), and a show of new art created in
his honour will be held at the Bau-Xi Gallery
beginning May 8. Also in the works is the
George Woodcock Seminar (at SFU), and a
new award,The George Woodcock Lifetime
Achievement Award. There is also a move
afoot to establish a George Woodcock Arts
Centre. For more information about these
and other projects, call 736-401 I or 687-
George was never a huge fan of UBC,
but it's only an institution made up of people,
and lots of us think he's pretty cool. CP

thebarin 1950, was appointed to the Supreme Court of BC in 1966 and to the Appeals

He could tell a good story. His eyes would crinkle at the corners and sparkle
light while his hands moved across the desk, fingers edging paper into piles, his voice
filled with the wonder of the world and the life he had lived. And laugh. A high, quick,
heartfelt sound that came easily and without reflection.
He was fiercely independent, thoughtful, just and caring. He was proud of where he came from and passionate
about where he was going, and we loved him.The law clerks, lawyers, secretaries, staff: all of us wrapped up in the intensely personal experience of knowing him. He found the best in alt of us and without us knowing It, showed it to us.
When Peter Seaton died skiing in the Okanagan last December, he was within a few miles of where he and his
brother and his father and his wife and so many others of his family were born, and I can't help but think that, somehow, that was right. But I miss him, kind counsel. We all do. Patrick Lewis
