Deborah Apps The Editor's Box
When editors and writers get together to talk about the thankless-
ness of their chosen professions,
the subject often comes around to
"how the heck do we know if anyone reads any of this stuff?" Every
one of us, at one time or another,
has the secret fear that we pour
our work out into the world and it
disappears without a trace into a
strange Twilight Zone dimension
where not one person has the ability or the desire to read. I've heard
that a similar thing happens to radio announcers.
But last month, after we published the article The Alumni Association in Transition," there was
no doubt that there were readers
out there and that they had something to say. In spite of all the trouble the article caused, it was good
to know that the magazine was being read. All your letters about the
Association have been copied and
sent on to the university's administration, by the way, where they are
sure to have the greatest influence.
And how did the letters run? About
10 to one in favour of independ
ence. We've published excerpts
from a few letters on the next
page, and a longer, representative
one, below.
Ultimately, of course, writers
and editors do their jobs anyway,
angst be damned. This issue
(short though it is, due to very low
post-Christmas advertising income) is packed as usual with
items of interest, including news
and Class Acts. Our intrepid
Marjorie Simmins has taken a
foray into the Lost and Found and
come up with some surprising
things; a retiring art teacher has
some interesting things to say
about teaching and art in general;
and yours truly has expanded his
waistline in the pursuit of good
university food. We also have a
photo spread of the Botanical Garden on page 16.
This is the Election Issue. You
have an opportunity to vote for
strong volunteer representation on
the Alumni Board. Election information starts on page 20. Please
Dear Editor:
So deconstruction has reached the
MOA, producing partial paralysis (Fall,
1991, p. 14-16). The general public,
most of whom never offended a critical
theorist in their lives, are now to be
deprived of informative labels on the
museum exhibits because "post structural critical theories ... refute the authority of the text," and question the
coherence of language itself. "There's
no truth, no one right answer," says
curator Marjorie Halpin.
I question the wisdom of applying
contemporary critical insights in this
way. Deconstruction is one extreme
shading on the complex spectrum of
modern theories of language and meaning, and has aroused a reasoned resistance almost from its inception.
That we "must be alert to ... ethnocentric bias" no one will, I hope, deny.
But that this alertness should take the
form of eliminating informative texts
because their pretensions to authority
might give offence seems to me at best
ludicrous. The provisionality that
poststructural theory insists on can be
built into the explanatory labels. After
all, if the museum's staff do not know
more about the exhibits than most
visitors, or are afraid to tell us what
they think they know, how do they
justify their positions?

Dear Editor:
I am writing in reference to an
news item in The Chronicle "Calling all
first nations alumni." I am not sure of
the meaning of'first nation,' but if it is
equivalent to the popular term of 'first
world' as opposed to 'second' and 'third
world,' then it seems to me that there
exists some forms of prejudices intended to exclude peoples ofthe 'other
worlds.' To my way of thinking, an
alumni association should not be fragmented into various categories. What
and who are 'first nations' and why
have these alumni been singled out for
special considerations?
Rudolph (Al) Richards, BArch'71
Dear Mr. Richards:
'First nations' is a term used to
describe native peoples. The idea is
that native peoples established the first

UBCAlumni Chronicle, Spring, 1992 Some comments on
"The Alumni Association
in Transition"
I think this new idea is crazy. The
Alumni Association (of which I was
a very early member) exists primarily because it doesn't belong to the
university. It belongs to the graduates, not the same thing at all. It
speaks for the graduates to the
university authorities.
—Alice Hemming O.B.E.
London, England
From time to time we should
indeed be at the same table, but
not in the same bed. Indeed, the
proposed "formal relationship" ...
describes an incestuous relationship, not a happy family one.
—R.M. Bibbs
Past President
I appreciated the feature "The
Alumni Association in Transition."
The section titled "The University"
helped me to see the possible
improvements and benefits that can
continue under "The Directional
Plan." I think it is a good idea.
—Nolan Piper, BASc(MechEng)'88
One of the major strengths of the
Association is that it stands alone,
but sits with the family of organizations and associations which in
total serve the students of UBC.
Let us always remember that the
university belongs to nobody but
its students and alumni.
—C.J. Brangwin, Chairman
London, England Branch
Sadly, the whole situation displays
a lack of respect, trust and cooperative spirit between the administration and the Association. Regardless of any new direction, this
situation will have to be addressed
and resolved.
—Tim Hollick-Kenyon
Assoc. Executive Director, '59 - '66
Our membership sees the Association as an extension of the university itself and not as a separate
—Russell T. Mark
Tokyo Branch
From the
The article in our last issue
("Alumni Association in Transition") generated much
discussion from alumni and
members of the university community.
Almost all the written response we
have received (some comments are
included on this page) supported the
view that our Alumni Association
should be an independent organization
able to deliver services, in cooperation with the university, as it sees
Those who read the Directional Plan in full had many questions concerning how alumni services would be handled by the
university and how alumni volunteers, staff and budgets would fit in
to the new structure. With these questions in hand, I sat down with
administration officials to seek clarification and to negotiate, as best
I could, conditions that would satisfy the needs of the Association,
the university and those we serve. These negotiated points were
packaged in a Memorandum of Agreement and, along with the Directional Plan, presented to the Association's Board of Directors. Neither
of these documents were acceptable to the Board and were rejected.
The Board, in effect, voted to maintain the independence of the
Alumni Association and to present our plan and budget directly to
the university's Board of Governors for their information.
Subsequent to our rejecting the Directional Plan and the
Memorandum of Agreement, the university withdrew discussion of
the Alumni Association from the agenda of the Board of Governors'
meeting scheduled for January 16. In spite of that, we produced a
package of materials for members of the Board of Governors (correspondence between the university and the Association, our annual
plan and our 1992-'93 budget) and sent it to them prior to the meeting. Further developments will depend, to some extent, on their
assessment of the situation.
To say my term as President of the Alumni Association has
been an interesting one would be an understatement. My work with
the university has been challenging and, I think, provides a positive
basis for future discussions with the university and for a strong,
involved Association. I have travelled to many of our branches this
past year and it has been a great pleasure to visit with men and
women who are using their UBC education to make a difference all
over the world .
It has been a privilege to be a part of a vibrant, exciting Association of staff and volunteers. My thanks to all of them for their
I am proud to be a graduate of UBC and proud to have had the
opportunityto serve it and its graduates.

Members Receive
Order of Canada
Opera singer Judith Forst and
Arthur Hara and Asa Johal, both
members of UBC's Board of Governors,
were named Officers of the Order of
Canada by Governor-General Roy
Hnatyshyn on January 6.
Judith Forst, BMus'65, is an
internationally known opera star and
has performed with major opera
companies and symphonies in North
America and around the world. Ms.
Forst was named Canadian Woman of
the Year in 1978, and was awarded an
honorary degree at UBC this past fall.
Arthur Hara is chairman of
Mitsubishi Canada Ltd., past chair of
the Vancouver Board of Trade,
president of the Asia Pacific Foundation
of Canada and is a past director ofthe
Council on Canadian Unity. He was
awarded an honorary degree from UBC
in 1990.
Asa Johal is president of Terminal
Sawmills and Terminal Planner Mills,
and president of the International
Punjab Society. He has funded fellowships in Asian Studies and Forestry,
and a graduate teaching assistantship
in Punjabi and Sikh Studies.

university today are children, grandchildren or great-grandchildren of the men

Some children, in fact, come from families with parents, grandparents and
great-grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces nephews and in-laws who are
all UBC grads!

family who sport UBC degrees? Let us know. We want to profile some of these
UBC families in our 75th Anniversary issue in the Fall. Contact the editor, UBC

Those chosen for profile will receive a new UBC Alumni T-shirt for each grad.
UBCAlumni Chronicle. Spring, 1992 Governor General's
Awards to Grads
UBC writers continue to make
waves in the literary community. Sarah
Ellis, BA'73, MLS'75and sessional UBC
library instructor won the 1991
Governor General's Award for children's
literature. Pick-Up-Sticks is her third
Winner in the drama category was
Joan MacLeod, MFA'81. Her play,
Amigo's Blue Guitar was performed at
the Arts Club in the fall of '91, directed
by Dennis Foon MFA'74. Daniel David
Moses, MFA'77, was a finalist in the
drama category for his play, Coyote
City. Don Dickinson, MFA'79, first
student editor of Prism International
was also a finalist in the fiction category.
English 100 Cut       Barry Jones is not Art Cowie, and vice versa
The bane or blessing of every UBC
student since 1915, English 100, is
closing its books forever starting Fall
'92. Replacing the venerable course
(worth 6 credits) will be a series of 5
three credit courses of which students
will be required to take two.
The new courses will isolate fiction,
poetry and drama from courses focused
on composition and non-fiction prose.
Two other courses will offer an enriched
diet of literature and criticism for
students who plan further studies in
literature and the humanities.
English department officials site
the different needs of a demographically
changing student body as the reasons
for the change.
In our article about the new B.C. government in the last issue, we inadvertently
called Barry Jones Art Cowie. Neither man, we're sure, wants to be mixed up with
the other, so here they are again, properly named. That's the NDP's Barry Jones
on the left and Liberal Art Cowie on the right.

UBC Alumni Chronicle, Spring, 1992 Athletics Ranked
The same magazine that ranked
UBC #4 overall academically in Canada
has ranked us #1 for our athletic
programs. In a survey that measured
the results of 16 national finals in men
and women's competitions, Maclean's
magazine put UBC first ahead ofthe U
of T, Manitoba and Western Ontario.
UBC's men's soccer team under
coach Dick Moser has won three
Canadian Inter-University Athletic
Union (CIAU) championships in the
last four seasons, and Gail Wilson,
coach ofthe women's field hockey team,
has guided the team to five
championships since 1977. Most
recently, the field hockey team won the
CIAU title in 1990-91 and the silver
medal this year.
Women's soccer, men's basketball
and women's cross-country all took
Canada West honours at this year's
CIAU events. UBC also hosted and
won the first World Invitational
University Team Golf Championship,
which featured teams from the U.S.,
Scotland and Japan.
According to athletics director Bob
Hindmarch, coaching is the key to
UBC's success. "UBC is one of a handful
of universities that looks at coaching
as a profession. All our coaches are
professionals and first-rate teachers.
To be a good coach, you've got to be a
good teacher."

President's Branch Tour
Since our last edition President
David Strangway has attended events
in Tokyo, Hong Kong, Montreal, San
Francisco, Los Angeles and San Diego.
Hong Kong
The Alumni reception was held at
the Hong Kong Hilton on November 25.
MC Kelvin Lee introduced special
guests Dickson Hall, Senior representative for the B.C. Government and John
Higgenbotham, Commissioner for
Canada. Several ofthe UBC entourage
had continued on from Tokyo and were
joined in Hong Kong by Dave Coulson,
Alumni Association President. Joining
Dr. Strangway on the programme was
Mark Fruin, who will take up his new
post as Director of the Institute of
Asian Research this summer.
No sooner home from the Orient,
and Dr. Strangway was off again to
Montreal to meet with UBC Alumni on
December 5. Deborah Apps, Association Executive Director also attended.
Montreal was in the midst of a winter
storm, but the hardy souls who did
attend enjoyed the video "Building
UBC's Future" and the opportunity to
hear Dr. Strangway's report on the
latest campus activities.
Victoria Geography
On January 23, Geography alumni
living in Victoria gathered at the home
of Garry and Doreen Mullins for a
social afternoon. Garry is the Deputy
Minister of Advanced Education (BC).
So persuasive is this group that they
were even able to lure Dr. Strangway
away from his busy schedule. Lew
Robinson of the Geography Division
can be commended for pulling these
alumni together and many thanks to
Garry and Doreen for their hospitality.
San Francisco
Rob Botman has very ably taken
over the reigns from Peter Lawson who
continues to be very busy with business and numerous personal pursuits.
On January 27, Rob, Peter and several
of the faithful gathered at the
Cinquterra restaurant to meet with Dr.
and Mrs. Strangway, Vice President
(External Affairs) Peter Ufford and Mrs.
Ufford. It has been reported that the
attendees lingered late into the evening,
beyond the normal closing hours, a
certain indicator of the conviviality of
those attending.
Los Angeles
Dr. Hartley Turpin and Judy
Turpin once again pitched in to put
together another first-class alumni
event, this time at the Balboa Bay Club
in Newport Beach. Brian Mackenzie
also assisted in the arrangements to
welcome Dr. Strangway's entourage.
This Branch covers the wide geographic
area of Los Angeles, and suggestions
have been made to divide the area into
two smaller units, so that alumni can
more easily access events, especially
during the week.
Nanaimo Branch
At press time, Dr. Jim Slater and
Hans Buys, our Nanaimo Branch reps,
were busy getting ready for a dinner
party February 17, at the Coast Bastion Hotel. Dr. Nancy Sheehan, Dean of
Education, will be the keynote speaker
and will address the group on current
educational issues.

UBC Alumni Chronicle. Spring, 1992
11 Of
Cigarette smoke drifts and curls around his
face. A thin cloud, opening and closing.
Revelation and obscurity. Roy Kiyooka sits
at his kitchen table, reviewing the long
career—including nearly two decades spent
teaching at UBC — that has brought him to
this moment. He responds graciously —
though not necessarily consistently—to questions he's heard far too often. "I've told the story
many, many times," he says, then spins out another answer. "Perhaps it would go something like this..."
Rain blows against the window, the room dims and darkens.
The only colour here is in a bowl of tangerines, an artless
arrangement of light, hue and texture, sitting on the table
between us.
Kiyooka's words are carefully shaped, his sentences
meticulously constructed. But the whole elegant edifice of
his conversation can be blown to pieces at any moment by
an explosion of his own irreverent laughter. However serious this interview becomes —What did this mean? What did
that signify? — his laughter is always there to knock it all
down. It matters. It doesn't matter a bit...
Right now he's musing about the persistence of an
abandoned persona, that of painter. In 1969, before he
began teaching at UBC, Kiyooka gave up painting in order
to pursue art practices which he felt were more relevant to
his own life. His own vision. Poetry and photography became his chief forms of expression — with significant
excursions into sculpture, video,
film, collage, music and performance. And yet he feels that an- [-,V 1^obik\
cient, disclaimed activity keeps *-
asserting itself. 'The odd thing is to have such a reputation
as a painter," he says. "I abandoned that part of myself more
than 20 years ago, but there's this ghost of me walking
around saying, 'Oh yah, I'm a painter!'" Burst of laughter.
Despite what Kiyooka says about the persistence ofthis
"ghost," many people believe that Kiyooka's early abstract
paintings have been unjustly consigned to obscurity. One of
those people is John O'Brian, associate professor of art
history in UBC's Fine Arts Department. He is particularly
interested in reviving the "Hoarfrost" series, some dozen
paintings which Kiyooka produced in Regina between November 1959 and December 1960. Why? 'There's a comprehension of the constraints and possibilities of abstract
modernist painting that is given form in the Hoarfrost
series, that is as rigorous and as intelligent as in any
grouping of abstract paintings produced in this country
since the Second World War," O'Brian says.
O'Brian's enthusiasm for the Hoarfrost paintings has
led him to organize a May exhibition of them at UBC. "I
thought it would be a wonderful show for the Fine Arts
Gallery, just about right for that particular space. And it
would also function as an homage to Roy, who has just
recently retired from UBC as a professor," O'Brian explains.
As well, he adds, it would assemble a group of remarkable
paintings "which have never been exhibited together before."
The inspiration for the Hoarfrost paintings was both
actual and theoretical. Kiyooka was teaching at the School
of Art at Regina College at the
time, searching, he says, "for
J—CiU^e^ACe. some kind of an abstract lan
guage" in paint. In his catalogue
UBC Alumni Chronicle, Spring, 1992 essay, O'Brian records that Kiyooka had been charged up
by a summer workshop with Barnett Newman, one of the
most influential artists ofthe New York School, an advocate
of the spiritual element in abstraction, and progenitor of
colour field and minimalist painting. Kiyooka, it seems, was
ripe to express Newman's theories in his own work. In the
fall of'59, looking from his studio window at the flat, snowy
landscape, then walking among trees and telephone wires
covered in a thick "fur" of hoarfrost, Kiyooka was inspired
to employ white crystalline elements which he could repeat
across the entire surface of his painting. Built upon a
patchy ground of blue, green, burgundy, ochre and buff,
with overlapping networks of slender off-white and white
brush strokes, the Hoarfrost paintings are lyrical fields of
muted colour and tempered gesture. New York abstraction
meets the prairie winter.
Wonderful as they are,
though, these paintings represent only one small aspect
of an immensely varied, prolific and peripatetic career.
Born in Moose Jaw in 1926,
Kiyooka grew up in Calgary,
attended art school there in
the late 1940s, moved to Toronto in 1950 "to see what the
big wide world was about,"
then travelled to Mexico in
1955 to further his art studies. After a "great" year at the
Instituto Allende in San Miguel
de Allende, Kiyooka returned
to Canada and has since lived
and taught in Regina, Vancouver, Montreal, Calgary,
Halifax, Victoria, Charlottetown and Vancouver again.
Wherever he has been, fye has
always seemed to align himself with the radical element
in art, whether abstract or photo-textual.
In Regina in the late 1950s he was associated with an
innovative group of painters that included Ken Lochhead,
Ron Bloor and Art McKay. In Vancouver in the early 1960s,
he forged a new way of thinking about abstract art. Scott
Watson, curator of the UBC Fine Arts Gallery, credits
Kiyooka with introducing "a counterview of modern painting practice" to the romantic, landscape-based abstraction
which had previously settled on the city. Kiyooka's prairie-
bred, New York-influenced abstraction was "more formal,
more rigorous," Watson says, than anything else being
produced on the west coast at the time.
From 1965 to 1969, Kiyooka was in Montreal, where he
produced hard-edge, geometrical abstractions and taught
at Sir George Williams University. "My great years of teaching," Kiyooka recalls. He links his thumbs and forefingers
into interlocking loops: "What I was about and what the
culture as a whole was about just came
together like this." The rise of separatism; the student unrest; the influence of
the American civil rights movement, Vietnam war protests and mind-altering
drugs; the coincidental ascendancy of
Kiyooka's minimalist painting style — all
contributed to an exciting engagement
with his time and place. The right zap of
Zeitgeist. "You can't, of your own will,
create that sort of situation," Kiyooka
says. He was at the zenith of his painting
But then, as he has told "many,
ABBA 72/3-1653
Part of Roy Kiyooka's Hoarfrost series
many times," he gave it up and moved back to Vancouver.
Why? 'The most art historically interesting notion would go
something like this: I walked away from painting at precisely the time that painting itself was faltering." The
ultimate relevance of abstract painting had been thrown
into question. Conceptualism was making a sweep through
the art world. In terms of his own career, Kiyooka says, "I
had come to a minimalist end, an absolutely reductive form
of painting. No colour but blue — nuances of blue — and a
virtually invisible ellipsoid form." He didn't see how he could
continue, creating endless variations on "the sublime notion ofthe abstract." And, he also admits, "painting didn't
wholly satisfy the range of my ambitions."
As early as 1955, Kiyooka had begun exploring poetry
as a means of expression. "I started writing in San Miguel,
in part because I couldn't account to the act of painting all
that was happening to me."
The work he produced there,
and later, back in Canada,
"was largely anecdotal," and
reflected on his
"Japaneseness" by incorporating haiku forms and images. With the 1964 publication of his first book of poetry,
Kyoto Airs, Kiyooka says, "my
interest in the visual arts —
the big ambitions of art —
gradually receded." Yet the
visual element of his expression survived — in the medium of photography.
Kiyooka saw photography
as a way of integrating his art
into his everyday life, saw the
camera as "in essence, a collective instrument." Years
earlier, a vision of what he
might achieve in art occurred
»•'. » '." /ri'
"Kiyooka's art manifests
a Zen-like commentary
about living in the absolute
present, about paying
attention to tKe
to Kiyooka in a peyote-induced high. 'That was an extraordinary experience and a changing point in my life in terms
of the inseparableness of the artist's unique work from the
larger effort, which is communal. That interplay was what
I've wanted from that point." Scott Watson says of Kiyooka,
"He wanted to break down the barrier between high art and
the ethic of living — what it was to lead a life in the late 20th
Since 1970, Kiyooka has used his camera to explore
themes of social connection, of gathering, of family, friends,
neighbours, travel, ancestors. His interest is in the ordinary
rather than the extraordinary, what he calls "exemplary
mundane moments." Kiyooka's photographs aspire to be
part of "the collective process," part of a continuum. Of
course, the communal concept has led to some
incompatibilities with the pressures of the marketplace.
"My instinct has always been to give my photographs away.
Always. The thought of selling them is
difficult for me. How can you sell that
person's face? Do you own it?" He pauses.
The cloud of smoke opens and closes. "A
photographer owes to the world the fact
that he has an image at all."
Kiyooka's interweaving of photographic
image and text anticipated the conceptual
art practices which now dominate the
Vancouver art scene. Of his impact at
UBC (he began teaching in Fine Arts in
1973 and retired in 1991), Watson says,
'There is something of the guru about
Roy. His practice and his knowledge have
UBC Alumni Chronicle, Spring, 1992
13 been very influential." In his preoccupation with the conditions of his own
identity (originating, not surprisingly,
in Canada's treatment of its Japanese-
Canadian population during WWII),
Kiyooka also pioneered a movement
towards cultural redress in art. "I feel
like the grandfather of the current
generation of Oriental-Canadian artists," he says. 'The whole renaissance
in the Chinese community is amazing.
Half of those artists were my students
at UBC." He sees his own work and
that of his former students as arising
naturally out of the intersection of
Western conceptual practice and Eastern historical sensibility. 'The image-
text thing is a very deep Oriental tradition. A great deal of Chinese and Japanese visual art is inscribed with poetry."
Watson says Kiyooka's art manifests a kind of Zen philosophy, a Zenlike commentary "about living in the
absolute present, about paying attention to the everyday." And somehow
you can see that sense of location as he
peers, through the smoke, through the
deepening gloom of this rainy afternoon, at his bowl of luminous tangerines. Roy Kiyooka has disposed of
vain enterprise, has constructed an
art and a life around what Watson calls
"an attentiveness to the world's beauty."

A New Art
Gallery for UBC
JL/ook for Roy Kiyooka's "Hoarfrost" paintings at the UBC Fine
Arts Gallery in May. but don't fall
over yourself looking for the new
gallery. Not for another couple of
years, anyway. Much anticipated,
but still in the planning stage, the
Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery (named after the donors who
have made its construction possible) is not scheduled for completion until the end of 1993.
Designed by Vancouver architect Peter Cardew, the $3 million building
will be built on the parking lot in front ofthe Freddie Wood Theatre. Curator
Scott Watson describes the design as "dynamic." with 5200 square feet of
exhibition space. 1500 square feet of storage space (there is none in the
existing facility) and a separate tower for offices and reading and seminar
rooms. "We'll have a much higher profile when we move," Watson says.
Unlike the present incommodious and climatically unsound gallery,
which has been located in the basement ofthe Library since 1948, the new
building will meet exacting standards of light, heat and humidity control.
Watson says the larger space and improved facilities will allow for the
hosting of important travelling exhibitions, which is impossible now. They
will also, he believes, encourage donations to the university's art collection.
"With the knowledge that we will be better able to care for the collection, we
should attract much more significant donations."
Sounds great. Given approval of Cardew's plans by UBC's Board of
Governors, construction should be underway by the fall of this year.

Thefts occurring at UBC
should be reported to the RCMP

as to the Lost and Found. The
most popular object to thieves
is the wallet: one hundred and
ninety-six taken in 1991 and
two hundred and twenty-four in
1990. Few of these are returned
"intact." They are taken from
offices, lockers, libraries, the
Bookstore — or simply pinched
from unguarded purses and
pockets. Operation Wallet,
instituted by the RCMP in
1990, helped students and staff
members at UBC become more
aware of crime on campus.
Forty-six fewer wallets were
stolen in 1990 than in 1989
and the numbers dropped
another twenty-eight for 1991.

15 UBC's Botanical Garden
il/ven for a campus with more than its share of
vista and spectacle, UBC is privileged and blessed
to possess one of the finest botanical gardens in
North America.
The Botanical Garden was started in 1916
on five acres of land on the Point Grey site, and by
the early '50s, gardens were spread out over the
entire campus. In 1970 a program was established
to formalize the garden and redefine its objectives.
In addition to display and public information, the
garden would provide greenhouse facilities and
plant collections for research use, facilities for
teaching and plant propagation for courses.
The Main Garden is located at 16th and SW
Marine Drive and includes a number of
The Asian Garden is set in a forest of mature firs,
cedars and hemlocks. Its 40 acres offer choice
species of wild Asian plants including magnolia,
sorbus and over 400 different rhododendrons. It is
a rich source of rare plant species.
The B.C. Native Garden contains over 3,500
classifications of plants found all over B.C. The
Garden simulates the many
different habitats, such as
meadows, dunes, bogs, and desert
that exist in the province.
The Alpine Garden replicates
alpine regions of geographic areas
around the world. Growing high
elevation plants at sea-level is a
challenge, especially when many of
these plants thrive in dry areas.
Tons of special soil had to be
imported to support this
magnificent garden.
The Physick Garden, opened in
1981, was patterned after a 16th
century cloistered monastic garden
and includes a variety of medicinal
plants. Chamomile, heartsease,
belladonna and foxglove thrive here,
and are used largely for display and
courses on herbs. Some of these
plants may be used in future
courses in biomedicine.
Nitobe Garden, an authentic
Japanese garden, is perhaps the
best known of all. It uses native
plants and a wealth of flowering
cherries and azaleas to show
magnificent beauty all year long.
Among the Garden's other
attractions are a Food Garden that
tests many varieties of vegetables to
be grown in this area; an Arbor
Garden to support various vining and climbing
plants; and a 13 acre natural forest that will be
left undeveloped.
The Alumni Association Diamond Jubilee
Plant, 'Purple Haze,' is part ofthe Garden's Plant
Introductory Scheme.  The goals of the scheme
are to introduce new plants to the nursery
industry and the public, to receive new plants
from international introduction schemes, to build
the relationship between the university and
landscape architects, the nursery trades and
other end users and to publish research
information on new plant introductions. The
scheme is operated in cooperation with the B.C.
Nursery Trades Association and the B.C. Society
of Landscape Architects.
In 1990, the Garden signed a five-year
cooperative agreement with the Nanjing Botanical
Garden in China. The agreement allows the
exchange of seeds, research, plants and ideas
from Canada to China and represents the first
such agreement between Canadian and Chinese

Penstemon fruticosus,
'Purple Haze,' named by the

lovely variety of shrubby
penstemon. In late Spring, this
evergreen sub-shrub, 20 cm tall

purple flowers 3-4 cm long. It
forms a solid mound of colour
for several weeks and is excellent for cascading over rock
walls, on well drained sunny
banks and in alpine gardens.

one of those, UBC, as a worker as well),

the morning Father Aquinas

SFU, Burnaby's Acropolis. The
atmosphere was breathlessly exciting
(I was there in 1970) and the times,
filled as they were with unhampered
youthful excess, could not have been
more satisfying. Professors were
electrifying (not to mention
psychedelic), courses were open and
democratic and I was overwhelmed
with a sense of endless horizons. But
the food (French Dip Au Jus
notwithstanding) was execrable.
The best of a series of horrible
eateries at the time was the Faculty

it was before it was liberated in 1969.
Remember "liberating" places?) Plastic
wrapped muffins, baked macaroni and
cheese with sawdust topping and
sandwiches soaked for hours in their

The coffee was boiled vitriol, the tea
was barrel scrapings and even the

Soup is just one) are exceptional every
day. Try the Won-Ton on Thursday or
the Northern Noodles on Friday.
Everything doesn't score in the top
ten percentile, though. I once ordered
a side of Brussels sprouts at SUB that
had the consistency of boiled compost,
and no amount of fresh onion, bottled
relish or mustard can disguise the
taste of a greasy hamburger patty. And
honestly, is there anything on earth
more disgusting than a deep-fried,
batter coated wiener on a stick? The
very thought makes me long for Notre
Dame's shepherd's pie.
There are other complaints. Why
has the omelette bar been closed? For
less than five bucks you could watch
someone cook up an eggy delight from
standard omelette ingredients (I kept
asking for anchovies) like bacon, green
onions, cheese and mushrooms, then rush to a table
to savour true freshness.
Alas, it's gone.
That other favourite, The
Bus Stop, has also passed.
The 'S' shaped counter and
few tables of The Bus Stop
Cafe probably contained
more fond memories per
square inch than any other
eatery in the western world.
That the food was greasy-
spoon sublime was a bonus
feature. The new David Lam
Management Research
Centre, built on the old Bus
Stop site, will open in March
with a new cafe, Trekkers,
on the bottom floor. We keep
our fingers crossed that it
has even a modicum of the
charm ofthe old place.
But, all in all, UBC food
The late, much lamented
Bus Stop. The new David
Lam Management
Research Centre will
sport a new eatery,
Trekkers, which veterans
hope will be even half as
good as the old one.
is pretty good, especially since there is
virtually no competition for miles. The
Village still thrives, but restaurants
there serve relatively few people. Neither
ofthe two Chinese restaurants holds a
candle to Yum Yum's and Fellini's, an
early '80s trendy sandwich bar popular
with Adult Ed and Counselling Psych
types, has declined disastrously.
Yum Yum's (for me. anyway) is
mass produced food as it should be: no
pretensions of grandeur or gustatory
magnificence, no disguising gristle as
good meat, and no attempts to cook for
a million what can only be cooked for
one. Just simple, straightforward food
that's hearty, tasty, honest and cheap.
For poor, struggling students (and staff)
what could be better?
Food, like music, has power to
sooth the savage breast. Especially
during the dark days of Winter. Back
at Notre Dame, those days brought the
wind howling snow into drifts along the
back field, forcing us indoors for hot
cups of coffee and bowls of bread
pudding. At SFU, when the fog swung
down and enveloped Burnaby
Mountain in a scene from Brigadoon.
the divine Beef Dip Au Jus made us
warm and cosy.
And here at UBC, when the dark
Wednesdays of February are as
distasteful as they can possibly get, 1
wake up in the morning, wink at myself
in the mirror and say "Buck up, laddie.
it's Beef Noodle in Soup day," and the
day becomes much more palatable.

of the Great Trek, 1922-1992."
For two or three years I have had a
growing sense that those who run UBC
have lost touch with its past, have been
increasingly blinded by the unceasing
and difficult quest for funds to feed its
growth, and have forgotten to keep the
porch light burning and the hearth
warm. Institutional memory may not
be of much practical use to those who
think like dispassionate MBAs, but
without it, universities, like nations,
frequently lose their way. The alumni
represent UBC's institutional memory,
and UBC needs their input today and
tomorrow just as it did yesterday. Accountants may not understand the
wisdom of investing in an independent
alumni association, but history should
have taught UBC that no investment
pays greater dividends.

Carl Tolman BA'24. now 94, is enjoying the
companionship of Irene, his wife of 64 years.
They are both in "remarkably good health for
our ages." writes Dr. Tolman. After a career
in geology, academic instruction and
administration and foreign affairs, he now
devotes his interest and time to international
affairs through membership in the St. Louis
Council on World Affairs, the UN Association
and the International Rotary. It sounds like
a very active and fulfilling retirement.

llenry Forbes Angus, distinguished
scholar and dean emeritus of UBC. died in
September 1991 at the age of one hundred
Dr. Angus was educated in France,
Canada and England. He received a BA
from McGill (1911) and from Oxford (1913),
a BCL from Oxford (1914) and an MA from
Oxford (1919). He was made a barrister at
law at the Inner Temple in England. After
returning to Canada, he earned his LLB
from McGill University. He was called to
the BC Bar in 1920.
He began his teaching career at UBC
soon after and was made full professor of
economics, political science and sociology
in 1929, and head in 1930. In 1949 the
Faculty of Graduate Studies was created,
and he was made its first dean. He served
on the UBC Senate from 1928 to 1938, and

Dr. Angus also had an active life as a public servant. He served on the Royal
Commission on Dominion-Provincial Relations (1937-40) and on the Royal Commission
of Transportation (1949-51). During WWII he served as special assistant to the Secretary
of State for External Affairs. After his retirement from the university, he became chairman
of the Public Utilities Commission of BC and served in that capacity until 1965. He then

Henry Angus published extensively, especially about international relations and
trade, and was a specialist in Panpacific concerns. He wrote many articles on race
relations, particularly concerning the Asian population of BC before, during and after
In October 1935 an article he wrote about international relations appeared in the
Dalhousie Review, entitled Beating Weapons into Ploughshares, in which he stated, "...
uncollectible debts should be forgiven conditionally on using the money for approved
purposes, so as to reduce the resources available for armament, without making taxation
unbearable." With the advantage of hindsight of what came soon after that time, perhaps
it would behoove us to implement his advice today.
Dr. Angus led a long and productive life. The country, the province and certainly the
university are richer for his contributions.

Mr. Carey's lectures were featured in an
article in the Winter 1985 Chronicle ... The
Right Reverend Douglas Ford BA'39 has

UBC, especially the Music Society's
performances ... J. Norton Wilson BA'34,
MA'36 writes that he moved with his wife
Donna L. McGavin to Courtyard Gardens, in

he has ever seen, with a gracious milieu,
excellent food and many interesting and
pleasant companions and enough
diuertismentto keep one amused. "You should
all be so lucky," he exclaims.

were especially generous to UBC.
They fled to Canada from Czechoslovakia in 1938. Walter and his two brothers began
work in the forest industry and discovered an industrial use for hemlock, a tree
considered useless by Canadian foresters. They turned their hard work and considerable
talents into a large fortune.
The family had a strong sense of duty to the community and felt a responsibility to
give back some of the wealth with which they had been blessed.
In 1972 Marianne and Walter donated their valuable collection of Northwest Coast
native art to the Museum of Anthropology. This donation was essential in securing federal
government financing for the construction ofthe Museum. They also donated $375,000
for a new wing at the university library and were instrumental in the development of the
University Hospital.
Mrs. Koerner had an active life as a volunteer, contributing her time to the YWCA,
Children's Hospital and the Red Cross. Her life-long association with Vancouver's
hospitals began during WWII, when she worked at Shaugnessy Hospital. She also opened
up her home to British wartime foster children.

PaulS. Plant—1927-91
raul Plant died on December 9, 1991 after a
courageous battle with cancer. He devoted many
years to the service of his community and to UBC.
As a student he was active in the Alma Mater
Society, serving as treasurer from 1948 to 1949.
The people who were on that council continue to
meet every five years and Paul will be missed at
the next gathering in 1994. As the manager ofthe
basketball team, he was inducted into the Big
Block Society.
Paul had dreams of entering medical school,
but fate Intervened and sent him in a different
direction. One week before he graduated from
UBC, his father, Ralph S. Plant, died. As a
consequence of that, he went directly into his
dad's lumber brokerage firm. One year later, his
half-uncle. Jack Hetheringotn, joined the firm,
and they became business partners, a partnership
that lasted until 1983, when Jack died. At that
time, the firm was renamed Plant Forest Products,
and Paul became the president. Up until shortly
before his death he was the owner of Columbia Distributors.
Paul never severed his ties with UBC. He became reunion chairman of the Alumni
Association in 1959, and eventually became president in 1963. Later he was appointed
to the UBC Board of Governors and served from 1969-75. He also served on Senate (1969-
As busy as he was, Paul was also very active in his community. He held offices or
served on the boards of Family Services of Greater Vancouver, the Canadian Broadcasting
Corporation (1973-1979) and the Vancouver Port Corporation (1982-84).
Many people will remember Paul for his involvement in politics. He was active In the
Liberal Party for 20 years, and in 1968 co-chaired John Turner's bid for the Liberal
leadership. His exceptional organizing skills had been noticed, and the new leader Pierre
Trudeau picked him to be national campaign chairman for BC in the 1979 and 1980
federal elections. The list of his accomplishments and contributions to the Liberal Party
are too numerous to list, but his good friend Dave Brousson, at his memorial service,
summed up his love of politics, "From the influence of his father and mother and of Prime
Minister Lester B. Pearson, Paul became a passionate Canadian with a vision of our
country he tried to communicate to his family and friends, and this led him into politics."
Paul Plant accomplished many things in his adult life, but he loved to tell his children
about being a yo-yo champion at the age of twelve and would give some amazing
demonstrations of his skills at their birthday parties. He also would brag about being the
youngest Canadian King's Scout ever, at the age of 14. A Boy Scout must earn all ofthe
badges available to attain that honour, a rare accomplishment at any age.
He will be missed by his wife Polly Sams; children Brenda Plant BA'89, Geoffrey
Plant BComm'77 (Janet [Graham] BHE'74), Mamie (Bob); his brothers and sisters Elva
BA'52, MEd'70, Albert BComm'55, Keith BASc (ElecEng)'61 and Sandra BA'64; his
grandchildren Caroline and Graham and his stepchildren Siobhan (John) and Samantha.
His children and widow have established the Paul S. Plant Scholarship in Canadian
Studies at UBC.

Del Nemetz, a great friend of UBC, died in December, 1991. She graduated from
UBC in 1935 with first class standing in philosophy, political science and economics.
That same year she married Nathan Nemetz. She received many awards during her
lifetime, including the Queen Elizabeth II Silver Jubilee Medal and two Canadian
awards from the International Association of Family and Conciliation Courts. In May
1988 she received a Doctor of Laws degree from UBC.
She once wrote that she "was raised with a passion for justice, learning and beauty."
She was a founding member of the BC Civil Liberties Union, was instrumental in
the setting up of Rape Relief Centres and was an early activist against pollution.
When she was an undergraduate she had an abiding interest in labour law and
economics. She worked as an unpaid economic assistant to her husband in his major
labour negotiations for many years.
She pursued a professional career with her family's business, Dominion Furniture
Stores, where she was involved in buying, advertising, finance, factory management and
furniture design.
She was an avid reader and attended all the lectures she could. In 1955, a university
student approached her to ask for help, and she spent many subsequent years tutoring
students. While her husband was serving on the school board, she helped behind the
She was offered positions on the Human Rights Commission, the Justice Institute
and on the Board of Governors and Senate of UBC. She felt obliged to decline these offers,
however, because of her husband's position as Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of
British Columbia. On this subject she wrote, "Of course, I deeply regretted having to lobby
for my goals rather that working directly for them but, in my position, I had no choice.
I know I have had a beneficial input into some legislation dealing with women in British
Columbia and Canada as a whole, and in many cases, dealing with education in British
In 1956 she began an informal affiliation with The Vancouver Institute. In 1971 the
relationship was formalized when she became a member of the executive. It was an
association which lasted the rest of her life. When she was unable to continue many of
her other pursuits, this was the one she continued. She was responsible for bringing
many interesting and prominent speakers to Vancouver, among them the Dalai Lama,
Dr. Paul Samuelson and Margaret Atwood. She considered this to be her most
conspicuous public work.
The Alumni Association is especially grateful to Bel Nemetz for her work on the
editorial committee of the Chronicle (1972-87) and as a member of the Board of
Management (1972-74).
Bel Nemetz was also a painter and produced many oil paintings during her life. Most
of these were portraits which were given to friends or sold to donate the money to a
charitable cause.
Bel Nemetz lived out her ideals of "justice, learning and beauty."

An Overdue Obituary
Flight Sergeant (Pilot) Gillmor Innis Morrison
xiccording to official records, Gil Morrison,
pilot of a Beaufort torpedo bomber, crashed
into the Bay of Suez on January 3, 1943, as his
plane, a port engine on fire, approached its
target. He was still alive when he was pulled
from the water by an RAF launch, but he died
the next day, badly battered and comatose. The
two other crew members also died.
Gil was 25 years of age when he died, and
his service record appropriately listed his trade
as pilot. To kill would have been repugnant to
Gil. So much for the glory of war. He also
wanted to live. So much for the justice of war,
especially for its uneven burden on youth.
Gil and I entered UBC together in September of 1934, and after a false
start in premed, we graduated together in agriculture in 1939. We were close
friends throughout this period. On my part, I loved him without reservation,
enough for my wife and I to name our only son Gerald Gillmor.
Gil's career as a pilot started on Saturday night in the spring of 1941 in
the pub at the Hotel Georgia, where the brothers ofthe skull and crossbones
met every Saturday night at "our" table. When Gil made his announcement
about going to the RCAF, I made my decision to go with him on the spot, as
if we were going to the movies. Gil was accepted, but I was rejected. I later
joined the Navy.
The Navy made it possible for me to see Gil once more before his death.
I was based in Halifax in 1942, when Gil arrived to board a transport for the
UK. We had a brief and emotional reunion on the dock. Paraphrased roughly,
his last words to me were: "I wish I weren't going, because I have a feeling that
I'm not coming back. I guess I'm not a very good hero."
Now for a fast forward. The year is 1990, and my wife and I are planning
a trip to Edinburgh for the wedding of our son Gerald Gillmor. Since we would
be half-way to Egypt, why not continue the trip and visit Gil's grave there?
It was a beautiful day in early October of 1990, and we were in a well-
trimmed Commonwealth cemetery in Suez
City. To complete the idyllic but sad circumstances, three little girls came out of the
slum next to the cemetery to look at the crazy
foreigners. We took their pictures at the
headstone of Gil's grave and gave them gifts.
Death is succeeded by life, even at this
historical crossroad of death.
And we also thought about Gil, and the
meaning of life, and love, and death, and
especially about war. We concluded that we
should work unremittingly for peace, so that
people like Gil would not have to cram all of
a life into a third of a lifetime. He had no wife,
no children, no old age and no memories. He
had a lot of nothing and that is asking too
much in the name of patriotism.
