Dr. Douglas T. Kenny
Dr. K. George Pedersen
There are points in the history of every institution that
mark in a significant way the stages of its growth. Such a
point is the inauguration of a new President.
For eight years, Dr. Douglas T. Kenny has served as
UBC's President. During that time we have moved
steadily towards national and international recognition as
a centre of learning and research. UBC is now, by any
legitimate criterion, Canada's second university. Since
1975 UBC has grown steadily in numbers of students,
amounts of research monies, excellence of teaching and
overall academic standards. For his part in this we owe a
debt of gratitude to President Kenny.
Now however, UBC, like all other universities in the
country, faces new challenges. The contracting economy
has brought with it a diminution of government grants for
higher education. The same situation has put pressures on
universities to concentrate on "training" rather than on
"education". Members of the general public have become
increasingly aware of the necessity for improved
management of the universities' resources. In short,
universities are being forced to recognize their roles as
public institutions.
Some of these pressures are legitimate. Others will need
to be resisted.
This situation unquestionably provides a challenge to
Dr. K. George Pedersen as he assumes the Presidency of
UBC on July 1st. University leadership in the 1980's will be
no easy task. Moreover, UBC has a tradition of
decentralization, which carries with it formidable
organizational challenges for any President.
And so it is that we welcome Dr. Pedersen as President
and also a graduate of our University. Our overwhelming
feeling is one of confidence in his abilities. He has
credentials in educational administration, both academic
and practical. His experience of British Columbia's
universities is second to none. And his ability to represent
his institution both to governments and to the general
public is without equal. Yet even Dr. Pedersen does not
walk on water — he will need the support of the whole
university community during the years ahead.
Alumni, therefore, join faculty and students in
welcoming Dr. Pedersen back to UBC. We look forward to
assisting him in whatever way we can and we hope that
he will regard alumni as an essential link between the
university and the community.
Perhaps in this way we can give President Pedersen a
sense that he presides not only over the 30,000 people on
campus, but also over 95,000 graduates around the world.
It could be a formidable combination!

coach Dale Ohman's second as he
was also on the Thunderbirds' initial championship team in 1967. T-
Bird quicksetter Paul Thiessen was
named the championship tournament's Most Valuable Player.
Over to gymnastics. At York
University, Canadian champion
Patti Sakaki put on a gutsy performance competing with painful
shin splints that hurt with every
step, as she successfully defended
her individual title for the third
straight year. In team competition,
after three straight seasons of
finishing in the runner-up position, coach Alena Branda's Thunderbird women finally took it all
as they edged the University of
Alberta by a narrow margin of
99.42 to 98.11. First year gymnast
Anne Muscat also captured the
Canada West title.
At the Big Block Award dinners,
Sakaki was also named a co-recipient (along with national team field
hockey goalie Alison Palmer) of
the Sparling Trophy as the most
outstanding female athlete while
wrestler Martin Gleave, a third
year Medical student, was named
the 1983 Bobby Gaul Trophy
holder as the most outstanding
graduating male athlete. He won
his second Canadian title this season.

have been working diligently to
ensure the preservation of UBC's
early history. Under their prompting, the board of governors designated the site of the first campus

UBC's second president) and they

In 1980 it was resolved to form a
new committee of those graduates
from 1926-44 who are interested
in preserving the heritage of UBC.
Chaired by Dean Emeritus
Blythe Eagles, the first meeting of
the Heritage Committee was held
on January 13, 1983. The committee's terms of reference and many
new ideas for possible projects
were put forward. Some exciting
possibilities include the collection
of archival materials, sponsoring
the writing of the history of UBC
and the collection of oral histories.
At our board of management
meeting of January 31, 1983, plans
for the new committee were
approved. A chairman will be
appointed shortly to oversee the
formation of both the main and
sub-committees. Ideas from graduates of 1926-44 would be most
welcome. Those who would enjoy

Chronicle/Summer 1983 7 Many details of how UBC was
included on the royal tour and
how an itinerary was finalized are
forever lost in a haze of officialdom stretching all the way to
Buckingham Palace. Most of the
major administrative decisions,
however, can be attributed to the
Queen's Canadian Secretary,
Lawrence S. Wallace. Reporting to
Wallace on the university's behalf
were President Douglas Kenny,
Ceremonies Director Benjamin
Moyls, and his assistant, Joan
Moyls' and King's involvement
with the royal visit began in early
December when President Kenny
notified them of the tour and
requested their assistance in preparing an itinerary. Moyls defines
their subsequent role primarily as
one of creative suggestion-making: Our role is not to tell people
what to do, but to make suggestions."
The tour itinerary evolved
slowly, through a series of meetings and informal discussions
among university officials and
representatives of the various
agencies involved in the Canadian
leg of the royal visit. According to
Moyls, the principal objective of
these discussions was to devise an
itinerary which would include
some of the university's most
beautiful and significant sites,
while at the same time appealing
to the personal tastes of the royal
couple. An obvious choice, therefore, was the Museum of Anthropology, a university landmark
which was previously visited by
Prince Charles in 1980.
Another proposed stop which it
was felt might be of particular
interest to Queen Elizabeth was
the Nitobe Gardens. However, the
potential difficulty of a visit to the
Gardens during the lion-and-lamb
month of March became abundantly clear to organizers during a
"dry-run" inspection in late January ("A dry run on a very wet
day," remembers Joan King). The
Nitobe Gardens was therefore
scratched from the list.
A second dry run inspection
held in mid-February included full
contingents of provincial and federal representatives, RCMP, campus security staff, and media.
It was eventually decided that
the  royal party would visit the
8 Chronicle!Summer 1983
Museum of Anthropology, the
Asian Centre, and the Health Sciences Centre Hospital. Although a
visit to the Health Sciences Centre
was included largely out of respect
for Prince Philip's interest in medical technology, only Queen Elizabeth was able to complete that
segment of the tour; in order to
fulfill a downtown luncheon
engagement, Prince Philip was
required to leave the university
shortly after touring the Museum.
For the staff at the Ceremonies
Office, preparation for the royal
visit was a progressively more
challenging and exhausting experience. From the New Year
onward, Joan King's working-day
typically continued until 6 or 7
p.m., and came to include an
ever-greater range of tasks.
Of major concern to organizers
of the royal tour was what King
calls "the problem of numbers."
The difficulty, as Moyls describes
it, is that "the more people you
have meeting the Queen, the less
time she has to enjoy herself. On
the other hand, given the nature
of the occasion, it only seems
appropriate that she should meet a
number of people."
However, organizers seem
unanimously to agree that such
concerns were all but nullified by
the Queen's well-developed timekeeping ability. Museum of
Anthropology Director Michael
Ames reports, "There were really
no problems. . . . She has a built-
in clock and is able to judge the
time and move at the necessary
pace." Ames notes that, although
the royal party arrived at the
Museum a quarter-hour behind
schedule and stayed only several
minutes less than the alloted time,
the Queen still managed to move
with seeming leisure through the
crowd outside the Museum.
"She was very good with the
public," recalls Ames. "She
crossed back and forth across the
steps, accepting wildflowers that
the people had picked from the
Museum gardens."
So detailed were the preparations for the visit that most of the
organizers seem to have achieved
a relative calm by the day of the
actual tour. As Ben Moyls says,
"You know you've done everything you can. The rockets are all
set. If it isn't going to go, it isn't
going to go."
For staff and students at the
Museum of Anthropology, the
Queen's tour represented a particularly valuable form of what Ames
terms "front-line training." Preparation for the event began in earnest soon after Christmas and
included a number of walkthroughs, briefing sessions, and
question-and-answer periods with
the fifty or so students and friends
of the Museum who volunteered
their services as ushers, marshalls,
and support workers.
Ames and his staff also spent
considerable time in conference
with representatives of the royal
party, the RCMP, the Secretary of
State, the news media, and
numerous other university and
government agencies. Organizational details were finalized in a
full-scale rehearsal held two days
before the actual ceremony.
Extension Curator Hindy Ratner
describes the royal visit as a major
achievement in the young life of
the Museum. She gives special
praise to the volunteer ushers for
the "courteous but firm" manner
in which they kept guests and
reporters in their places.
Ratner also speaks with obvious
relief of how careful planning
helped the Museum avoid what
she calls the "terrible, terrible
catastrophes" of the Museum's
early days. Ratner refers
specifically to the disasterous
effects — "lights blowing, alarms
going off" — of an electrical system overloaded by television
floodlights. For the royal tour,
camera crews were required to
provide self-generating, portable
lighting systems.
In addition to the signing-in ceremony, the first stage of the royal
tour included a performance by
the Hunt Family Kwakiutl dancers
and the presentation' of gifts. As
well, the royal couple viewed the
massive Bill Reid sculpture, "The
Raven and the First Men", which
was unveiled by Prince Charles in
As the briefest stop on the tour
(10 minutes), the Asian Centre
was faced with a relatively simple
process of organization. Like the
Museum of Anthropology, the
Centre relied heavily upon volunteer   support. Having previously entertained
such dignitaries as Prime Minister
Trudeau, a Japanese Crown
Prince, and a number of Foreign
Ministers, Asian Research Director Terence McGee was undisturbed by the prospect of a royal
visit: "From my point of view, I
thought we did everything we
could, given the restrictions of
time, and so on. I was quite comfortable about it."
As she approached the Asian
Centre, Queen Elizabeth was
entertained by the Katari Taiko
Detwiller  plotted  a  contingency
As in both previous stops, the
Queen was forced to foreshorten
somewhat her stay at Health Sciences. Detwiller points out, however, that the abridgement was
made without significant cost to
the scheduled agenda. In this
regard, Detwiller praises Dr.
Joachim Burhenne and Dr. Brian
Pate for providing the Queen with
condensed, yet highly informative, introductions to the Imaging
Research Centre equipment.
Queen Elizabeth pauses for a brief moment in front of onlookers during her visit to

like clockwork.
Japanese drum troupe. Once
inside the building, she watched
Dr. McGee give a "substantial
wallop" to a Japanese bell, viewed
a wood sculpture by Geoff Smed-
ley, listened to a performance of
Indian music, and inspected a collection of photographs by V.P.
Modi. She was also shown a Japanese flower arrangement prepared
by Sam Oyama of the Nitobe Gardens.
Meanwhile, across the campus
at the Health Sciences Centre,
Administrator Lloyd Detwiller
had been notified of the progress
of the tour. Given that the
Queen's party was due to arrive
approximately fifteen minutes
behind schedule, Detwiller
viewed his role primarily as a
"timekeeper." Using a highly
detailed guide prepared by Tour
Secretary      Lawrence      Wallace,
During her visit to the Health
Sciences Research Centre, the
Queen unveiled a plaque commemorating the inauguration of
the Imaging Research Centre. She
was then taken on a tour of both
the positron emission tomography
(PET) and nucleur magnetic resonance (NMR) suites. Finally, she
was escorted to the Extended Care
Unit Patients' Lounge, where a
group of ECU patients presented
her with a bouquet.
Over 100 Health Sciences
employees helped coordinate the
final stage of the royal visit. Following the Queen's departure
from the University, an informal
reception held in the Psychology
Lecture Theatre was attended by
over 600 people.
By all accounts, then, the 1983
royal visit was a highly successful
event which benefitted participat
ing institutions in a number of
ways. Among the most obvious
benefits was the thorough cleaning which Physical Plant employees gave campus buildings and
grounds. "If royalty comes every
two or three years, you get the
place nicely cleaned up," says
Michael Ames.
Beyond such tangible benefits,
however, the royal visit seems to
have made a lasting impression
upon many of the participants. In
describing the immense effort
which Museum of Anthropology
staff and volunteers put into the
preparations for the event, Ames
notes that "It really galvanized
people." Hindy Ratner adds,
"We're a close group, anyway.
This further strengthened the
For Lloyd Detwiller, perhaps
the most satisfying aspect of the
Queen's visit was its beneficial
influence upon the patients of the
Extended Care Unit. He describes
the visit as "a great occasion" and
recalls how ECU patients organized a lottery to determine who
would greet the Queen on her
walk through the ECU Patients'
Not surprisingly, the excitement
of an exhaustive two-month
involvement in preparations for
the royal tour seems, in a number
of cases, finally to have given way
to at least a vague and fleeting
sense of depression. Michael
Ames observes, "In some ways
the preparations are more exciting
than the final events. It's like
Christmas — the wrapping and so
on. All the unwrapping's finished
in five minutes."
For most people on campus,
however, staging the annual UBC
Open House only two days after
the royal tour meant that, as Lloyd
Detwiller suggests, "There was no
chance for a real let-down."
Doubtless as a consequence
of the royal visit, both the
Museum of Anthropology and the
Health Sciences Centre Hospital
were overwhelmed with visitors
throughout the three-day event
(the Asian Centre did not participate in this year's Open House).
Detwiller describes the typical
reaction of visitors headed for the
Imaging Research Centre, "If it's
good enough for the Queen, I'll
have to go see it for myself." 1
Chronicle/Summer 1983 9 B.C. beer marketing study
Beer, the workingman's drink,
is the student's respite.
Under normal circumstances
you'll find the beer outside the
classroom; this past year, though,
it was found inside a UBC classroom, not in the bottled form, but
on paper, as an object of a commerce study.
In February 1982, Michael Goldberg, Associate Dean of the Faculty of Commerce and Business .
Administration, was commissioned by the provincial government to study the effects of regulation and deregulation in the
province's brewing industry.
Goldberg, with a background in
urban land economics, enlisted
the aid of Catherine Eckel, a member of the policy analysis division
of the faculty. Eckel's field of
research is industrial organization
and regulation.
The research and final analysis
yielded some surprising results.
The brewers, they found, are
wrongly fingered as the villains
when it comes to the high price of
beer. Rather, it is the combination
of provincial and federal taxes and
an array of marketing regulations
imposed by the governments that
are responsible.
The federal government hits the
brewers early, at the production
stage, levying an excise tax which
stood at seventy cents per gallon
in September 1982. That's about
six and a half cents for every bottle. Add to that a federal sales tax
of 12 percent, about five cents per
At the provincial level, say
Goldberg and Eckel, beer taxation
methods are diverse. The provincial governments raise considerable revenue through the mark-up
of beer sold by their liquor boards
and through license fees to other
sellers of beer. Provincial sales
taxes are often applied on top of
previously marked-up beer prices.
10 Chronicle/Summer 1983
On regular beer, mark-up is 50
percent in B.C., sales tax is seven
percent. For a dozen beer, they
translate, roughly, to $4.45 and 62
cents respectively.
The net result? Of the $8.85 you
pay for a dozen beer, less than 50
percent goes to the brewery. Take
from that the brewery's operating
costs (including the highest wages

the direct route, regulation of the
distribution and retailing of beer,
the indirect route, are responsible
for limiting the selection of beer
and the range of prices available to
the public. Beer selection and
price variety are the benefits of
unfettered competition in a free
market system. If the restrictions
are lifted, Goldberg and Eckel
argue, the public will benefit
Evidence of this was observed
recently in B.C.
In March 1980, Consumer and
Corporate Affairs Minister Peter
Hyndman dropped the regulation
of beer pricing in B.C. His expectation was that competition would
increase and prices would drop as
a result. He didn't anticipate what
happened a year later when the
big three breweries, Molson, Carl-
ing-O'Keefe, and Labatt raised
their prices by near identical
Contrary to popular perception,
Goldberg found no evidence of
collusion or other anti-competitive
behaviour on the part of the
breweries. "What he (Hyndman)
did not understand," says Goldberg, "is that in a competitive
market prices may go up, they
may go down, they reflect costs,
and what you will see is price
dispersion and product differentiation."
The report's statistics show that
significant price dispersion did
indeed take place after deregulation of pricing. In March 1981,
when deregulation was introduced, 20 of the 28 brands on the
market sold at the same $5.90 per B.C. DOMESTIC BEER PRICE HISTORY

Despite the rapid price increases after deregulation of prices by the government,
brewersinB.C. only improved their profits otter costs by about 3% ml982, reaching
3.7%. The national average is 8.4%. Provincial taxes and well-meaning regulations,
which unfortunately backfired, are the culprits, UBC's Michael Goldberg discovered

dozen. By November 1982, no
more than eight brands sold at
any one price. "Open pricing
works and does give the consumer
some choice vis-a-vis price," says
Carling-O'Keefe B.C. President,
Al Branston. "We look more
closely now at how pricing works
in the market and we try to produce price leaders."
While deregulation of pricing
seemed to work in this sense, it
did nothing to encourage product
differentiation; there is a wider
selection of price but not of product. The problem was, that of the
four "P's" in marketing — product, place (distribution), promotion, and price — only price had
seen deregulation, and that only
The brewers are still, today,
faced with three major blockages
to open pricing: they are allowed
to change prices only once per
month; they must announce price
changes with a press release; and
they must sell each of their products at a uniform price across the
The costs of these regulations to
competition, and therefore to the
public, are high, says the Goldberg and Eckel report. Monthly
price changes mean that a discounted brand must remain discounted for the entire month, an
expensive proposition even for the
large breweries, and one which is
nearly impossible for the smaller
Announcing price changes
takes away the competitive
weapon of surprise, they say, and
selling at a province-wide price
eliminates   competition   for  sub-
markets in pockets of the province. Regional variation in price,
say Goldberg and Eckel, will allow
for differences in shipping costs
and create competition for the
sub-markets that are within
affordable shipping distance of
cottage breweries.
Product is constrained, according to the study, by a regulation
which requires that domestic beer
must be produced in the province
in which it is sold. Ultimately it
would be far more efficient for the
big breweries to set up one plant
centrally to supply the west rather
than operating four or five
regional breweries. "We only have
to look south of the border where
there are no boundary restrictions
to see that that will work," says Al
The idea behind the boundary
regulation is local job protection.
The limited selection of beer that
results from this regulation also
results in limited competition. Lift
the restriction, the report says,
and allow out-of-province beers,
like New Brunswick's "Moose-
head", to be sold in B.C., provided that the brewer agrees to
invest in breweries in the province
once a predetermined market
share has been reached.
Place or distribution, is equally
constrained by regulation. Beer
can only be distributed through
LDB stores in B.C. and licensees
which sell draft can only use one
supplier and can only change suppliers twice per year. Removing
these restrictions would encourage greater competition, Goldberg
and Eckel argue. The LDB can
maintain current revenues by selling to supermarkets and other
retailers and could encourage
even greater competition by occasionally selling beer to the other
retailers at discounted prices.
Further public benefit can be
attained by providing cold beer at
stores and improving facilities so
that more than two dozen empties
can be returned at a time. And
draft beer could be distributed in
bulk by tank trucks, avoiding the
costly kegging procedure and providing a fresher product.
The fourth "P", promotion, is
again hard hit. In particular,
point-of-purchase advertising and
promotion in LDB stores are not
allowed. If these restrictions were

lifted, Goldberg and Eckel argue,
competition would be enhanced
because smaller breweries which
cannot afford slick television and
radio ads as the large breweries
can, will have a cheap and effective marketing tool at their disposal.
They also suggest that the LDB
consider bulk bottling of beer as it
has done with spirits, and that
they market a generic beer to provide the consumer with added
choice at the lower price levels.
Goldberg and Eckel's recommendations are aimed either at
making beer buying more convenient for the public or at encouraging competition by lifting those
restrictions which tend to keep
entrepreneurs out of the industry.
Entrepreneurial input could
take the form of cottage breweries
which, in combination, can supply
a greater selection of specialized
beers, from $5 per dozen generic
beers to $30 per dozen super
premiums. They are able to do
this, Goldberg says, because they
can cater to specialized markets
alone and survive well, once the
cheaper forms of advertising and
greater pricing flexibility are
allowed. It is not in the interest of
the large breweries to cater to the
Students study suds
It was to the students in UBC's
Commerce 494 class, Government
and Business, that a working academic paper based on the beer
pricing study was first presented.
In the course, Catherine Eckel and
her students look at how government and business interact, and
how regulations in business filter
down to affect our daily lives.
But there have been difficulties
with the classroom approach in
past years. "The complaint with
the course in the past," says
Eckel, "has been that the students
don't get any first-hand feeling for
what we discuss here, that the
information is not up-to-date, that
it's not relevant.
"This year we didn't get those
complaints. The beer pricing
report really brought it home for
them; it was something they could
see was real. And they could follow it in the papers."
Similar studies are being undertaken by other faculty members,
to the benefit of the students.
Such studies include: electricity
pricing and regulation; changing
the Crow's Nest Pass rate; establishing a free trade zone with the
United States.
The study of beer fully supported four students during the
summer of 1982. Eckel and Goldberg hired the four (two from
accounting, one an MBA student,
and one from marketing) to assist
in compiling background information and statistics for the study.
The students were paid by the client, the government, through Dr.
Goldberg, who also reimbursed
the University for, the use of any
services. This included his own
and Eckel's, because, he said, "in
doing the study we were no
longer fully available to the University."
The use of students in a work/
study capacity is not unusual.
Eckel estimates that 60 to 70 per
cent of all research carried out by
the faculty uses students as hired
assistants. Usually, assistants are
paid through a University-administered government grant supplied for research carried out by
the faculty. The beer study, as a
commissioned work, is an exception.
Eckel and Goldberg assigned
each student a very specific task
so that they would have something to show potential employers
once the study was completed.
The accounting students, for
example, were able to work with
the financial data and reveal much
about the poor profitability of the
brewing industry in B.C.
Analyzing a study like this
forces the students to take a
broader perspective, says Eckel,
"broader than the balance sheet"
which they usually encounter in
their courses, and teaches them
how to think about policy.
12 Chronicle/Summer 1983 numerous small markets because
of the small return. "We do cater
to some smaller markets now with
various brands," says Al Brans-
ton, "but not in such a narrow
way as Mike Goldberg suggested.
If it came down to such small
markets, no, it wouldn't be
worthwhile to cater to them."
Cottage breweries won't pose a
significant threat to the large
breweries because their output
will be small. Trollers in Horseshoe Bay, for example, produces
1,000 hectolitres of draft in a year
while, across the harbour, Molson
produces one million hectolitres.
In force, though, the smaller
breweries could exert some competitive pressure.
For all the denouncement of
regulations, Goldberg and Eckel
still point out that there really are
no villains in the beer pricing situation. The government may look
bad but their regulations were
imposed out of a sincere concern
for the public.
"There's no conspiracy here,"
Goldberg told the press when his
paper was released, "the laws just
It was in the early 1920's, when
the U.S. public was faced with
prohibition, that regulation of
alcoholic beverages in B.C. began.
Rather than following the U.S.
example, the province took a
slightly more liberal attitude,
intending to promote temperance.
This was done by centralizing all
sales of liquor through the government. This prevailed through to
the early 1950's when the two
functions of liquor control were
separated and the Liquor Distribution Branch, the retail arm, and
the Liquor Control and Licensing
Branch, the licensing arm, were
The first significant change to
the system took place after the
Morrow Commission was set up
in 1970 to look at regulation of all
alcoholic beverages. Noting that
the public had developed more
mature attitudes towards alcohol,
they recommended considerable
relaxation of the regulations. This
resulted in more self-service
stores, neighbourhood pubs, and
magazine advertising which the
government had banned.
"The government historically
has felt that alcohol has to be regu
lated, that if we encourage consumption through these promotions it will be a bad thing," says
But the government's well-
intentioned protection of the public has more often than not wound
up adversely affecting us, observes Goldberg.
The trend is changing though.
Says Eckel: "Previously, economists looked at the best way of
getting things done. Now, there
are more monitors of policy who
understand the effects of regulations before they are imposed
rather than after." i

Chronicle/Summer 1983 13 Commerce endowed chairs
by Karen Loeder
During times of drought, the Chinese turned to the Dragon-kings
for rainfall. In the "drought" of the present recession, the
Commerce faculty attracts the much needed "rainfall" of
endowed chairs and research funds.

that seven Commerce faculty members took to
China last year made the front

Associate Dean Michael Goldberg
were pleased with the coverage,
they were perturbed to find that
Sun reporter Douglas Sagi labelled
them "chief dragons" in his
Perhaps they shouldn't have

Chinese mythology reveals the
more accurate term to be "dragon-

divinities the Chinese turned to
when drought hit the land. They
were thought to bring rain. In the
"drought" of the present worldwide recession, the success that
Lusztig and Goldberg have had in
attracting gifts to the faculty in the
form of fully endowed chairs,
endowed chairs and endowed
research funds resemble the
much-needed "rainfall".
Seated comfortably in Dean
Lusztig's office the other day, I
watched him as he quietly
recounted the story of the development of the chairs and research
funds that have helped to put the
faculty of Commerce among the
top ten in the world. The words of
a faculty member returned to me.
"Don't be misled by his very quiet
manner. The man is straight-forward. He's very shrewd, very
observant and very reticent."
When Lusztig became dean in
1977, the faculty already had a
strong history of community
involvement through the work of
the previous dean, Earle McPhee.
The timing was just right for the
steps he was to take. Impressed
by the high calibre of American
business schools, he made visiting
them his first priority. He was
already familiar wifh Stanford
because he had completed his
PhD there after a BCom at UBC
and his MBA at the University of
Western Ontario.
By talking with American deans
and professors he identified the
areas of change he thought would
make a difference in the UBC faculty. The chairs and research
accounts particularly impressed
him for it was the combination of
the two which enabled the schools
to attract and retain top professors. Stanford University, with a
school of business roughly the
same size as UiSC's, had 18 chairs
at that time. "They're a private
school and there's a tradition of
giving. But I thought, why not try
it in Canada?," recalls Lusztig.
Towards the end of the '70s,
American colleges were getting
considerable money from business
corporations. Total corporate support of colleges in 1979 was $800
million, about 35% of the $2.3 billion earmarked for tax-deductible
gifts. Corporate support in 1950
was not much over $40 million,
about 1/20 of what it is today.
Six years ago the faculty of
Commerce had no endowed
research funds and only one
endowed chair, the United Parcel
Service chair in transportation.
This chair happened almost accidentally when Professor Karl Rup-
penthal came to the faculty from
Stanford to head the centre for
transportation studies in 1970. As
he had been instrumental in securing it, UPS agreed to move the
chair to UBC. It was UBC's first
chair and probably the first one in
Western Canada.
The   UPS   chair   is   now  fully endowed. In other words, the capital base is over $1 million and it
pays Professor Ruppenthal's salary and research support from the
interest on the capital base. "Part
of the endowment for the UPS
chair provides for the current and
future salary of the professor holding it so that the university is off
the hook completely," says
Lusztig. He adds that the UPS
donation started out with "something like $500,000 of their common stock." Recently UPS bought
back their shares for cash and
gave additional sums.
As well as the two fully
endowed chairs, there are six
endowed chairs and two more in
the advanced planning stages.
The endowed chairs require an
investment of $120,000 or more.
Interest on the capital base pays
for the chairholder's research support and travel perks, but not his/
her salary.
The Commerce faculty now has
four endowed research funds.
Instead of providing faculty members with individual research
funds, a unit is provided so that
the whole division has access to it
rather than just one very distinguished professor they are trying
to hold at UBC. The chairs are
funded in three years, the
research funds in four. Some companies like to spread their tax
deductible gifts over three or four
Lusztig also initiated summer
workshops. "We want an active
research program in the summer
where faculty members and doctoral students present papers. To
stimulate this we have brought in
distinguished people from other
universities to participate in workshops, as well as major names
from American businesses and
schools," he says. The workshops
were funded by gifts from the
alumni and other sources.
When he went after corporate
donations, Lusztig used the UPS
chair as an example. He found the
attitude of the corporations surprisingly positive. "People understood that this would make a difference. It could move a school
from being a very good school to,
potentially, an excellent school.
They couldn't simply argue, 'well,
we pay our taxes', because in certain fields at universities, the com
petition    for    good    faculty    is
extremely tough."
One of Lusztig's earliest steps
was to set up an advisory council
drawn from the business community. All forty members are either
executive vice-presidents or chief
executive officers, drawn from
labor, government and business.
He relies on their contacts to introduce him to potential donors. The
council also holds luncheons to
get potential donors together for
informal discussion.
"Stanford is a private
school and there's a
tradition of giving.
But I thought, why
not try it in Canada? "
The calibre of the advisory
council is impressive. Members
serve a two-year term. About a
third are from outside B.C.
Among the eastern members: Bernie Ghert, president of Cadillac-
Fairview; Paul Paine, vice-president of Power Corporation and
former chairman and president of
Montreal Trust. Among the western members: Ian Grey, chairman
of the board of CP Air; Peter Bentley, president and chief executive
officer of Canadian Forest Products; Trevor Pilley, chairman of
the Bank of B.C.; and Marie Taylor, chairman of the B.C. Utilities
If the enthusiasm of Bev Harrison, managing partner of Arthur
Andersen & Co., and Bill Levine,
executive vice-president of Daon
Development are typical, advisory
council members are very enthusiastic about their involvement with
the faculty of Commerce.
Arthur Andersen & Co. established an endowed chair in
accounting. Funding came from
local partners and UBC commerce
grads working there. Harrison
suggests that the benefits the company reaps from sponsoring the
UBC chair are mostly indirect.
"It's beneficial for us to share in
the association with a prestigious
school as a supporter. The publications that Professor Richard
Mattesich, the present chair-
holder,  does professorally mean

One of the most interesting gifts
to the faculty didn't involve cash.
It came from Daon Development.
Two years ago last November,
Associate Dean Goldberg and
Daon's Executive Vice-President
Bill Levine, BA '63 (MBA Harvard), went for lunch. "It was just
the right time," says Levine.
"Daon was interested in doing
something that didn't involve
cash." Shortly after, Daon presented the faculty with one unit,
worth $125,000, in a limited partnership which owns three shopping centres in Edmonton, Red
Deer and Calgary. Partners were
entitled to the rental income from
the shopping centres which were
guaranteed an 8V2 percent return
in the first year. The real estate
underlying the gift will grow in
value with inflation.
Levine stresses that Daon's gift
was "not a selfish motivation but a
realization that we have hired and
had the benefit of a lot of very
good UBC Commerce students."
He was surprised to find that their
gift, worth $125,000, was "pretty
sizeable" in comparison to what
other businesses had given.
"We believe it's the top faculty
of commerce in Canada," he says.
And that's no boast, although it's
difficult to measure a school in
terms of excellence. However, in
terms of the excellence of its professors' published papers, the
UBC faculty is undeniably the best
in Canada and has been cited by
American selection committees in
the management science and
finance areas as one of the top ten
in the world. Its accounting
department, in a survey done last
spring by the Alberta Chartered
Accountants Association, was
rated tops in Canada. Its finance
department, in terms of size, is
one of the top five in North America. The faculty had the largest
class of doctoral ^candidates in
Canada last year, producing 50%
16 Chronicle/Summer 1983
of the doctoral candidates in English-speaking Canada.
The other "dragon-king", Associate Dean Goldberg, is a nice foil
for Lusztig. He holds the fully
endowed Herbert R. Fullerton
chair in urban land policy. Money
for this chair was drawn from real
estate boards throughout B.C. and
Goldberg worked closely with
Dick Richards of the B.C. Real
Estate Board in raising it.
The same insider who did the
word sketch of Lusztig also
described Goldberg. "He's a super
administrator, trouble shooter,
digs up ideas, makes contacts and
he likes to initiate things."
Goldberg says that the $12,000
honorarium that comes with his
chair gives him monies for
research assistance, travel and
equipment, thus enabling him
"not to worry about going out and
getting a lot of little grants for
research assistants." Perks from
his chair enable him to go to more
than one scholarly meeting a year
and to have his manuscripts
A few weeks ago, his book The
Housing Problem: A Prices Crisis
was published by the UBC Press.
"If I hadn't had a research assistant to update my references, that
book might not have been published," says Goldberg.
For him the most significant
thing about the chairs is the institutional exposure they give the
university. For example, after
attending one conference in
Guelph, he was invited to appear
on Canada A.M., CTV's morning
news show. Such exposure, says
Goldberg, could have long-term
ramifications for the faculty. It
might induce a student to come to
UBC. It could motivate government people who often grace the
show themselves to decide to use
UBC Commerce professors to
advise them on some aspect of
policy, and it could help in getting
The faculty's newest chair and
one that Dean Lusztig is justifiably
proud of is the Bank of Montreal's
chair in International Finance,
approved by the senate last year
in January. It's the first time the
Bank of Montreal has invested
such a large amount in a western
Canadian university and it
appeals to Lusztig that a bank
headquartered in the East recognizes the quality of UBC's Commerce faculty.
Lusztig headed the finance division before he became dean. At
that time, the division did not
have an international reputation.
Several professors said the presence of Professor Michael Bren-
nan, an internationally renowned
scholar in the field, had considerably advanced the division in this
regard. Brennan holds the Albert
E. Hall professor of finance chair,
which was a gift from members of
the financial community to
honour its namesake, the former
chief elective officer of the Bank of
B.C. For the past three years, he
has edited the prestigious Journal
of the American Finance Association from UBC — the first time
that the journal has left the United
States since its inception.
Brennan and Eduardo Schwarz,
another professor in the division,
won the Q Prize in 1981, awarded
each year by the Institute for
Quantitative Research in Finance.
The selection committee at Columbia University said their paper,
Bond Pricing and Market Efficiency,
was the work which represented
the highest level of scientific

Dean Peter Lusztig recognizes
that all faculties do not have the
fund-raising machinery at their
disposal that his faculty does. "In
fairness," says Lusztig, "we have
an easier time raising funds
because we have a group out there
that ties in with us. It's a lot easier
for professional schools to find
people that we can make a pitch
to. They hire our students. Having
said that, I think we have to also
convince them that this is the
place to come because we're good.
That's critical."

growing. About 10,000 to 12,000

In the past, many Canadian academics have held the attitude that
they shouldn't dirty their hands
by fundraising. American faculties
have felt differently because a
large proportion of their universities have always been private.
Dean Lusztig sides with the
American viewpoint. If academics
don't take an active role in fund-
raising for the university, warns
Lusztig, "we deprive our students, we deprive our faculty, and
we deprive our province of the
kinds of things which could be
done that we aren't doing." f

Jennie Gillespie Drennan Memorial Scholarships winners who attended a special
reception held in their honour: (I to r) Elizabeth Drance, Zdenka Sperling, Gloria
Dubeski, Stan Arkley, Vice-President of Friends of UBC, Heidi Oetter, Suzanne
Voetmann, UBC President Douglas Kenny, and Gerald Marra, President of
Friends of UBC.
For a number of years, the
Friends of the University of British
Columbia have administered the
endowment funding of the Jennie
Gillespie Drennan Memorial
scholarships, awarded annually to
outstanding female students in
the UBC Faculty of Medicine.
The Jennie Gillespie Drennan
Memorial scholarships are
awarded on the basis of recommendations presented by the
Dean of the Faculty of Medicine.
This year's award winners are
Heidi Oetter, Jana McLeod, Gloria
Dubeski, Elizabeth Drance, Sandra MacKiegan, Susanne Voetmann, and Zdenka Sperling.
The Jennie Drennan scholarship
fund was established by UBC
graduate Albert Alexander Drennan (BA '23), in honour of his aunt
and guardian, pioneer medical
practitioner Jennie Drennan. Born
in Gaspe, Quebec, in 1870, Jennie
Drennan began her medical studies at Queens University (Kingston). She did extensive post-graduate work in pathology and
bacteriology at a number of institutions, including the University
of Edinburgh and John Hopkins
University. She taught at both the
University of Chicago and Louisville University, and was for sev
eral years a resident physician at
the Mayo Clinic in Rochester,
Minnesota. She later worked as
superintendent of the New York
Department of Health laboratory,
in which position she remained
until her retirement in 1940. She
retired to Toronto, where she
passed away in 1946, at age 76.
For years a prominent California
advertising and public relations
figure, Albert Alexander Drennan
was killed in a traffic accident in
London in 1973. Following Mr.
Drennan's death, the Friends of
UBC assumed full responsibility
for the administration and maintenance of the various UBC assistance projects for which Mr. Drennan's estate provides support.
Based in Seattle, the Friends of
UBC is an organization which
allows American citizens to make
tax-deductible donations to the
University of British Columbia.
During the February 25 ceremony,
Friends of UBC President Gerald
Marra presented Douglas Kenny
with a cheque for over $95,000
U.S. This money is to be used to
establish a trust fund, the income
from which will be used to endow
the Jennie Gillespie Drennan
Memorial scholarships. 8
