Chronicle/Spn'ng 1983 3 Alumni UBC
debuts
new look
The Alumni Association recently unveiled its new association
signature. The full name, The UBC Alumni Association, has given
way to "Alumni UBC", a shortened version (the full name and
address is still used on all stationery, etc.). And the traditional UBC
crest appears in a more contemporary, simplified design.
This new visual identity concept was chosen for several reasons.
"Alumni UBC" places greater emphasis on the alumni rather than
the association itself. The traditional emblem, while maintaining
historical continuity, has been adapted to modern standards of
graphic reproduction. (The traditional crest may still be used for
appropriate formal occasions.) Both the truncated name and the
modernized crest are distinctive and easy to identify and interpret.
All of the Association's stationery will soon appear bearing the new
logotype and symbol printed in the University colours of royal blue
and yellow.
A special thank-you is extended to each of the volunteer members
of the Communications Advisory Committee, who worked with the
Association in developing the new image: Scott Mclntyre, BA '65,
Nancy Woo, BA '69, Murray McMillan, LLB '81, John Schoutsen,
MFA '82, Betty Sommerville, Bob Partridge, Margaret Davidson, and

4th generation of grads
Calgary, Alberta
5 November, 1982
I am enclosing a cheque for $50.00 as a
contribution to the Alumni Association. At
the same time, I thought it would be of
interest to the Society and to the University
to be aware that my son, Jack Stuart
Fournier will (we hope) graduate this
coming spring in Geology.
I am an Arts '61 grad, as is my brother,
J. S. Lawrence Fournier (BCom '61). My
mother (nee Helen Jean McDiarmid), was
Arts '33, and my father, Frank L. Fournier,
Arts '29. My uncle, Leslie Thomas
Fournier, was Arts '21 (BA '21, MA '23).
The fourth-generation aspect comes in
through my grandfather, Stuart Stanley
McDiarmid, who was not a true
"graduate" of UBC. Rather, when UBC
completed its first year of existence in
1904-1905, it held a convocation, although
it had no graduates to grant degrees to.
Instead, the University rounded up a
number of recent graduates from other
Canadian universities then resident in B.C.
My grandfather was one of these, having
received an Engineering degree the year
before from Queens'. These recent
graduates were granted honourary degrees
by UBC at that first convocation, hence the
"fourth" generation of our family to obtain
a degree from UBC.
Peter L. Fournier, BA '61
Keeping in touch
Bern, Switzerland
8 July, 1982
1 have decided to write and give you my
current address. I believe you try to keep in
contact with UBC graduates and continue
to send the UBC Chronicle and reports to
them.
I have been without a fixed address for
the past one-and-a half years. After leaving
a Home Economics teaching position in
Coquitlam, I took to the "high seas". With
some friends, I sailed a 37' sailboat from
California to New Zealand. It took us 10
months (3 months of 24-hour sailing; the
rest of the time was spent in port). We
called into ports in Mexico, French
Polynesia, the Cook Islands, Tonga, and
Fiji before arriving in New Zealand in
November, 1981.
Afterwards, I travelled to Australia,
climbed the famous Ayres Rock and visited
Alice Springs. On the way, I met, and later
married, a Swiss architect who was on his
way around the world. We finally ended
our travels in mid-May, 1982, when we
returned to his hometown, Bern, the
capital of Switzerland. Now, we are busy
getting back into "real life" — working,
living in one place, saving money again,
etc. I am trying to learn two new
languages, German and the Swiss dialect,
which is used in all social conversations.
I look forward to hearing from UBC at
some time.

Many of us who grew up with
1
television have a love/hate relationship with it. TV provides a
comfortable escape from our dailv
concerns but, at the same time, we
scorn the hours wasted in front of
the '.boob tube".
-..im its earliest beginnings,
television has been used as intellectual food for the masses, serving up programs of popular
appeal and a relatively small portion of news. Widespread consumption of this fare attracted
advertisers and the television
industry has reached a point
where the interests of commercial
enterprise and entertainment live
in lucrative co-existence.
Many educators in B.C. have
found this relationship to be a
negative one, claiming that it generates television programing
designed for the lowest common
denominator. With a TV set occupying space in 85 percent of the
province's homes, thev lament the
sheer waste of such ar powerful
communication tool delivering
hovjpafter hour of saccharine programing to passive viewers.
Visionary educational leaders
saw the potential of television for
providing knowledge rather than
simply entertainment to that 85
percent of the population, not
onlv  in   the  lower  mainland  but "Some of us have suffered for decades while the supposed 'masses' got
their supposedly preferred fare, but I've never met among this group
anyone who was satisfied with the programs which are supposedly geared to
the (lack of) taste of us 'masses'. So, God bless the Knowledge Network."
—Knowledge Network viewer
throughout the province. An
interactive television service could
be the answer to providing equal
educational opportunities to all
members of a dispersed population in a large province.
British Columbia's educational
television channel, Knowledge
Network, turned that vision into
reality. Establishing a provincial
public educational channel was
the prime focus of the Network
during its first year and a half of
operation. For such an ambitious
project, the Network blossomed
quickly, spreading from the 35
centres capable of receiving it
when it first began to 135 communities in B.C. to date. That total
pushes 150 when you add receiving centres in Alberta and the
Northwest Territories.
Knowledge Network's Public
Affairs Manager Glen Mitchell
recalls those hectic early days. "In
October 1980, the provincial government advised us that we could
have 77 hours per week programing beginning in January 1981.
Not much time to prepare ourselves! But the following January
12 at 9 a.m. 'Home Gardener', our
first program, ran and we went
with the full 77 hours from the
beginning."
Mitchell was first hired as a Network Field Worker, responsible
for installing cable networks and
transmitters throughout the province. He jokes that he is perhaps
the major individual supporter of
CP Air because of the countless
trips he took all over B.C., often
visiting two or three towns every
week, in the year after the Network was established. Along with
his public relations functions, he
still coordinates some installations
(he was in Sooke the previous
weekend, the latest town to
receive the Network). Thirty more
communities are on a waiting list
for funds to install receivers.
Knowledge Network evolved
through a number of experiments
initiated by the Ministry of Educa
tion between October 1977 and
May 1980. These communications
experiments were intended to
demonstrate the value of interactive instructional television via satellite. The first used the Hermes
Communications Technology Satellite and broadcast programs to
four community colleges and a
logging camp at Pitt Lake.
local college). It was only with the
creation of the Knowledge Network that the signal received via
Anik-B was fed into cable network
in a systematic way, thus providing the first province-wide educational channel in British Columbia.
The Knowledge Network as we
know it today was created by cabi-
Knowledge Network production staff observe monitors in control room of UBC
network studio.
A variety of programs were
broadcast, including family law,
forest industry training, psychology and medicine, and involved
the three public universities,
BCIT, the Vancouver General
Hospital and the Greater Vancouver Library Foundation. The
Hermes experiment demonstrated
that it was both technologically
and educationally feasible to
broadcast via satellite to a number
of receiving dishes throughout the
province and distribute the signal
over cable.
Subsequent Anik-B experiments
increased the number of broadcasting and receiving sites, but
they were only available for viewing within a centre (generally the
net order in May 1980 "to assist
and collaborate with the universities, colleges, provincial institutes,
school districts, ministries and
agencies of the province in the
development and delivery of educational programs and materials,"
and "to establish and maintain
and operate a telecommunication
network."
It is a relatively small (by television standards) government
funded non-profit organization,
which presently employs 35 people, 22 of whom are production
staff. Mitchell reports that the
budget for the current fiscal year is
$2.3 million for operating and capital costs. The Network's operations centre is located on the UBC
6 Chronicle/Spring 1983 campus, while its administrative
office is housed at the University
of Victoria. As well, BCIT, UVic,
SFU and UBC each has a production studio tapped into the Network cable link.
The educational channel's air-
time has increased to 14 hours a
day, seven days a week, from 9
a.m. to 11 p.m. The Network buys
many of its programs from
Ontario and Alberta's educational
TV networks, Open University in
Britian, the National Film Board
and American sources. About
two-thirds of the Network's
airtime offers "telecourses", educational programs that may be
taken for credit, depending on the
institution offering them.
Asked if any difficulties were
faced in convincing local institutions of the value of offering credit
telecourses, Mitchell explained
that tact and diplomacy are a
major part of the job in dealing
with certain academic environments. Academic people in a small
community can become quite
comfortable in their role of being
the local 'experts'. Suddenly, people have an opportunity to learn
via their television and these academics are no longer the only
experts in town.
"Telecourses are so new," says
Mitchell, "there is some uncertainty as to whether or not they fit
into a particular institution or if
they can be offered for credit.
However, about 25 percent of the
Network's telecourses are for
credit."
Approximately 20 hours of tel-
courses per week are live programs, many of which are produced at the Knowledge
Network's studio on the UBC
campus. These live programs
often allow students to phone in
questions and receive answers
from the show's teacher/host.
Other telecourses are fully produced by and purchased from an
outside source.
Enrolling in a telecourse is as
easy as phoning your nearest provincial educational institution.
Once students sign up for a
telecourse, they can receive additional support services from their
local college or school including
text books, study guides, tutors,
examinations and credentials.
"You haven't lost any advantage no matter where you live,"
says Mitchell, describing the
benefits of the telecourse method
of education. "A student in Inuvik
watches the same telecourse at the
same time as a student in Vancouver."
Although establishing an educational channel was the initial
emphasis of the Network's services, two other services are now
underway: The Universities Communities System and the Inter-
institutional Instructional Network. These services are based on
"You haven't lost
any advantage no
matter where you
live."
a broadband ('broadband' means
the cable is able to carry a large
number of television channels)
cable system installed in the lower
mainland in 1982, linking UBC,
the teaching hospitals, law courts,
SFU, and a number of other locations.
The UBC Hospital, Vancouver
General Hospital, St. Paul's and
Shaughnessy/Children's Hospital
will each be able to originate a
medical diagnostic channel and a
teaching    channel,    and    receive
these channels from other institutions. This means that medical
people in one hospital will be able
to teach or perform a diagnosis in
another institution via television.
Another television channel in
the law courts could allow law students to watch actual court cases
from campus. As well, each educational institution could originate
an educational channel, allowing
seminars and lectures from one
school to be received by another.
As a teaching tool, the Knowledge Network's inter-institutional
system will save hundreds of
hours in travel time and perhaps
even in duplication of effort for
students and teachers alike. It also
promises to be an up-to-the-minute link between the ideas/
research side and the clinical/practical side of the professions.
British Columbia's educational
channel is still very new but
already the technology behind it
has been upgraded three times.
This past February, the Network
transferred to the new Anik-C satellite which was launched for
Telestat Canada by the space shuttle Columbia last November. This
new generation of satellites provides more powerful output and
promises to give better service to
viewers.
If burgeoning growth and technological innovations are any indication of its potential, then Knowledge Network may be the shape
of education to come. 8
Thinking smart
Being in the developmental stage and working on a tight budget
does tend to bring out the ingenuity in an organization's employees.
The Knowledge Network's recent Free Telecourse Contest is a good
example of the "think smart" attitude of its staff.
The problem faced was a limited marketing budget of $10,000 to
promote the Knowledge Network educational channel, not nearly
enough to do an effective job on a province-wide basis. The solution
involved working with Canada Safeway to promote both the
Knowledge Network and the good corporate citizenship of Safeway.
The con is on. The advertisements read "Win a free telecourse —
$10,000 worth to be awarded by Canada Safeway". The contest was
promoted in one of every four Safeway radio ads and weekly in
Safeway flyers, which were circulated all over the province. The
contest was successful in that Knowledge Network received 1,500
entries. Although Canada Safeway "awarded" over 220 scholarships
for telecourses, these scholarships were actually funded by the
Network's marketing budget.
What's the sting? Nobody got stung! The Network received
thousands of dollars worth of advertising free; Safeway received
positive community PR; and lucky Network viewers received $10,000
worth of free telecourses. All in all, one clever bit of marketing!

fri/ Ian McLatchie
Whether the proliferation of computers is for better or for worse is an open question. . . . for it is
people who create, shape and apply the potential of micro-electronics. . . .
--Richard 11. Hill, quoted in Science Council of Canada quarterly, Agenda
We are presently in the first
stage of what is potentially the
most revolutionary phase of
human history. Within the next
two decades, micro-electronic
technologies shall extend their
influence over virtually every
aspect of our public and private
lives.
The growth of the new technologies has been truly astonishing.
It is estimated, for example, that
the silicon chip industry is currently expanding at a rate of
between seven and ten times the
growth-rate of anv previous technology. Even more remarkable is
the speed with which the specialized technologies of science and
industry have been adapted to a
vast    range    of    more    exoteric
devices, from electronic games
and laser-disc video players lo
automatic banking machines and
computerized cash-registers.
Whole new industries have
arisen to create products whose
very functions were inconceivable
a decade ago. At the same time,
many traditional skills, services
and systems have been rendered
obsolete (the mechanical timepiece, for instance, is rapidly
becoming a museum-piece).
Within the context of a free-market economy where "progress" is
conceived primarily in terms ot
reduced cost and increased
efficiency, these trends seem certain to continue. Simply stated, no
industry — indeed, no nation —
can afford nol to invest heavily in
the research, development and
application of the new technologies.
Technological growth has
become inexorable, irresistible.
Thus, in the years to come, it will
be progressively more difficult to
mold technology to serve predetermined social policy objectives. Instead, social policy must
be tailored to the structural
demands of technology.
In their scale and their vast
range of projected applications,
computers and related technologies seem to suggest a heaven-or-
hell potential for the future of
mankind. On one hand, by opening untold avenues of communication and providing the individual
with direct and immediate access
dv/Spnii^ 1983 9 to immense storehouses of information, the new technologies
promise to liberate mankind from
the traditional restrictions of space
and time.
Within a generation, theoretical
problems which presently tax the
abilities of the most advanced
hypercomputers will be solvable
on a normal pocket calculator.
Eventually, it is predicted that
micro-electronic implants may
facilitate such "miracles" as the
restoration of damaged sight,
speech and hearing.
And yet, it is indeed an "open
question" whether modern technology shall ultimately serve mankind or force most of humanity
into a perpetual state of physical
and mental servitude. The material benefits of the technology are
obvious. What is not yet clear is
what role we as individuals will
play in a fully-automated society.
The so-called information explosion is still in its infancy; yet a
number of disturbing trends have
already emerged. Some of these
problems may be resolved automatically by the continued expansion of the computer culture. Even
so, the ever-accelerating pace of
social and economic change
demands that we begin planning
today for the society of the future.
Micro-electronics is the cornerstone of a new economic structure
dominated by information-related
occupations. The gradual shift
from traditional industrial
employment to information-control occupations has come about
over a number of years. Increased
mechanization, sophisticated communication systems, and highspeed transportation have allowed
primary resource industries to
achieve greater productivity from
a smaller work-force, while also
supporting the growth of secondary and service industries. In the
past thirty years, the number of
information-related jobs has
grown at a rate nearly twice the
overall growth-rate of the Canadian work-force. Today, approximately 40% of the country's labour
force is involved in information-
related occupations.
The advent of micro-electronic
circuitry, however, does not represent a mere acceleration of
established trends. It provides the
impetus for a fundamental trans-
10 Chronicle/Spring 1983
". . . The issues are cultural, rather than technological, as we
have untold technological possibilities, yet know not what to
do with them."
formation of human thought and
action.
In other words, social and economic functions, planning strategies, even modes of abstract
thought nurtured by an industrial
society centred on mechanical technology may prove inappropriate
to the management of the computer culture. As computer theorist Richard H. Hill points out,
"computerization dissolves boundaries, changes relationships and
integrates functions."
What distinguishes micro-electronic circuitry from any previous
technology is its enormous and
continuing reduction in both size
and cost (significant improvements have also occured in component speed, reliability, and
energy efficiency). The magnitude
of these changes in many cases
almost exceeds credibility. Any
summary of industry achievements and predictions seems to
assume a breathless "Believe-It-or-
Not" quality. A few examples
cited from Science Council of Canada research:
Electronic "id"?
"The idea is to provide the
computer with a complete ethnic,
social, physical and psychological
picture of yourself. This way the
computer can think like you do,
even before you do. It can select
the TV program it knows will
most interest you, then
recommend a couple of martinis
before dinner. (A dinner which, of
course, it is preparing for you, on
the basis of your calorie, protein,
nutrient arid vitamin
requirements.) After dinner it will
play a video game against you,
letting you win if it thinks your
ego needs that tonight."
Stephen Weissman, quoted
in VideoPrint newsletter.
Weissman says that software,
designed to be an electronic
"id" would be able to predict a
personal computer user's
immediate information needs
and wants and would satisfy
them even before requested.
Reprinted from the January 1983
issue of Canadian Office.
The power of computers has
increased 10,000 times in the
past 15 years. The cost of computers has decreased 100,000
times in the same period. ... By
the year 2000, a single silicon
chip will contain 10 million
transistors, giving it more computing power than the present
installed computer capacity of
most corporations. . . . We are
moving into an era when it will
cost less to buy a microprocessor than to fill a car with
gasoline. . . .
And so on, it seems, ad infinitum.
Consumers have already
benefitted greatly from the exponential growth of the new technologies. Electronic calculators,
microprocessors, and communications devices, which until recently
were the exclusive preserve of
major corporations and institutions, are now common household items. As well, the application of solid state technology has
helped keep the price of many
items such as cameras and home-
entertainment systems at a more
or less stable level for nearly a decade.
Yet, while the micro-electronics
revolution has made a significant
impact on our lives, we are only
beginning to realize how far-
reaching that impact may be.
Within a decade, technology
promises to alter significantly our
roles as workers and consumers,
our system of education, even our
personal relationships. For better
or for worse, mankind has entered
into a womb-to-tomb partnership
with the computer, a partnership
likely to be dissolved only by war,
revolution, or world economic collapse.
The transformative power of the
new technologies has been most
evident in the manufacturing sector, while full-scale automation
has led to improved productivity
in both products and processes.
Already, so-called CAD/CAM
technology (computer-aided design and computer-aided manufacture) has wholly reshaped the
production processes of many
industries.   In Japan,   where  the use of these technologies is most
advanced, an automobile factory
may typically achieve over twice
the efficiency of a comparable
North American operation. Japan
has also pioneered the use of
robotics in all phases of industrial
production, from initial design
through final manufacture, testing, and shipment. At present,
perhaps 20,000 robots are in operation in Japanese factories; corporations such as Yamazaki and Mitsubishi already have a number of
fully-robotic factories.
Although robotics is not yet as
widespread in North America,
many corporations have instituted
long-range planning strategies
centered on the use of reprogrammable industrial robots. General Motors, for example, expects
to have 14,000 robots in service by
1990.
Of particular importance to
Canada is the applicability of
micro-electronics technology to
the needs of primary-resource
industries. In mining, micro-electronics has streamlined the entire
extraction process, simplifying
cutting control, general materials
handling, and environmental control. As well, satellites and remote
sensing instruments have helped
locate mineral deposits in remote
and otherwise inaccessible areas.
Satellite communication has
also helped the forestry industry
to locate and measure usable
reserves. Sawmill automation,
with its extensive use of laser techniques and computer control, has
resulted in a 10% increase in the
lumber produced from each log.
Fisheries and agriculture have
also achieved gains in efficiency as
traditional products and processes
have been redesigned to incorporate microprocessors. Agricultural
applications include crop spraying, irrigation and drainage control, animal feeding, and greenhouse regulation. In fisheries, the
use of microprocessors has produced more sophisticated navigational aids, communications
instruments, and location systems.
Within the present decade,
computers will fundamentally
transform the process of education. As learning aids, computers
permit the development of a personalized and individualized cur
riculum which allows each student to progress at his or her own
pace. One educator has suggested
that classroom computers are
transforming the teacher's role
from "information transmitter" to
"curriculum designer."
Computer-assisted products are
also helping handicapped students to enter the academic mainstream. Reading computers such
as the Kurzweil Reading Machine
recently installed in UBC's Crane
Memorial Library actually "read"
aloud virtually any printed-word
material. Handicapped students
will also benefit from the voice-
activated typewriters and business
machines which are expected on
the market within the next few
years.
. . . Middle-
management
personnel are
particularly
vulnerable.
Micro-electronics will similarly
affect other sectors of society. In
the intermediate future, most
homes may be equipped with
videotex modules similar to the
Telidon terminals currently
installed in libraries, businesses,
and shopping areas. The merging
of data and communication systems into advanced digital networks promises in time to provide
each home and business with a
full range of relatively inexpensive
interactive audio and video communication systems.
Yet, many of these technological
advances may carry a heavy social
cost. Industrial automation has
already led to widespread structural unemployment. It is projected that by the year 2000, 50
percent of all manufactured goods
will be produced by robots and
automated systems, and that over
25 percent of the factory workforce will be dislodged. Proponents of automation argue that by
increasing productivity and
encouraging the development of
service industry, micro-electronics
will eventually create more jobs
than it takes away. In many
instances, however, this is impossible to substantiate.
A distinctive feature of the
micro-electronics revolution is that
large-scale structural unemployment is not exclusively or even
primarily confined to the working-
class. Indeed, middle-management personnel are particularly
vulnerable, as computerization
subsumes many supervisory and
intermediary functions. Even as
vital a profession as computer programming may in time become an
employment wasteland as applications generator systems allow
computers to design and program
other computers. It is estimated
that within 20 years, as much as
five   percent   of   Canada's   gross

Another worrisome aspect of
the computer revolution is the
general trend towards a centralization of power, the placing of
potentially sensitive material in
the hands of an increasingly small
circle of industrial conglomerates
and government agencies.
The accumulation of huge databanks means that data, which
alone is considered non-sensitive,
can become sensitive when correlated with other information to
produce a detailed profile of an
individual. As data can be transferred easily between systems,
security and legal control are at
best complex and difficult processes.
Similarly, Canada's sovereignty
may be threatened as more and
more sensitive information passes
out of the country and into the
files of multi-national corporations
and foreign governments.
Even more troubling, however,
is the apparent tendency of much
of this technology to serve as a

home in a normal week.
Satellite television and other
passive, non-social entertainments, man-against-machine
video games, an education system
which places computer interfacing
before inter-personal skills —
these and other trends suggest a
composite picture of a hopeless,
fragmented society. The problems
of de-culturization would become
even more severe, were large-
scale job dislocation to create a
semi-nomadic class of highly-
trained but unemployable workers.
The issues then are cultural,
rather than technological. The
transformative power of microelectronics demands that all levels
of government develop comprehensive long-term social and economic planning strategies. Universities and colleges, too, must
tailor programs to satisfy the
needs of a new economic order.
And yet, change is taking place so
rapidly and on such a large scale
that it is difficult even to conceive
the form of future society, much
less to devise planning strategies
intended to maximize future
opportunities.
The near-incomprehensibility of
this tremendous change is
reflected in the increasing use of
such Orwellian double-speak as
"job loss growth" (i.e. structural
unemployment) and "de-skilling"
(i.e. the supplanting of skilled
human labour by computers).
The challenge facing humanity,
therefore, is to keep pace with our
own inventions. In future, computers can be expected not merely
to spur mankind on to the acquisition of knowledge but to begin
generating knowledge of their
own.
As quintessential symbols of a
culture and a society, the products
of the micro-electronics age may
represent either the liberation or
the enslavement of humanity. As
Science Council member Ray Jackson suggests, "Working tirelessly
night and day they may outstrip
us, and their products, their new
syntheses and new theories, may
be complex, abstruse, beyond our
comprehension. What then, my
human friends? ..." ^

12 Chronicle/Sprm£ 2983 The Commerce Alumni Division
was constituted about ten years
ago. The division began primarily
for the purpose of establishing a
business luncheon program
involving Commerce students and
downtown business people. Over
the years, regular contact has been
maintained between the students,
the Dean and the Commerce
alumni through this program, as
well as through other endeavours.
The alumni business luncheon
co-ordinator works together with
the student luncheon co-ordinator
(with varying levels of administrative assistance from the Faculty of
Commerce) to set up a program of
approximately 50 luncheons each
academic year. The alumni coordinator is responsible for contacting the companies each year
and arranging time, place, date,
number of students, etc., while
the student co-ordinator is responsible for selecting students to
attend the luncheons. The business luncheon program is now in
its ninth successful year. Fortunately, current economic conditions have not had too negative an
impact on company participation.
Each of the past two years, the
Commerce Alumni Division, the
Commerce Undergraduate Society, and the Faculty of Commerce
have had the privilege of working
together with the Vancouver
Board of Trade in the organization
of a major luncheon with a well-

known guest speaker (John Cros-
bie in 1981 and Premier Bill Bennett in 1982), which has been
attended by over 1,000 business
people and Commerce students.
A regular feature of this annual
event is the presentation of the
Distinguished Alumnus Award to
a Commerce graduate who has an
outstanding record of business
and community involvement since
graduation.
The Commerce Division has
held three successful phonathons
in the past two years. This is an
ideal way to get alumni and students out to raise money for special projects for the faculty. This
year, Dean Peter Lusztig and

were there to give the volunteers
moral support.
Special thanks and congratulations to the Commerce Phonathon
volunteers, who raised $13,515
in pledges for four valuable Commerce programs: the alumni chair
in management, Viewpoints magazine, the alumni talking stick
award and the dean's emergency
loan fund.
As a means of maintaining regular contact between Commerce
alumni, students and faculty, the
division has established a number
of general policies:
— the President of the Commerce Undergraduate Society is a
member of the Commerce Alumni
Division executive committee,
which meets on a bi-monthly
basis;
— the Commerce Division
Chairman has regular lunch meetings with the Dean of Commerce
to discuss goals, problems, ideas,
etc.;
— the Dean of Commerce
attends the final Commerce Division meeting of each year, which
is generally a business meeting
followed by dinner;
— two members of the Commerce Division executive regularly
attend (and have full voting privileges) the Faculty Caucus meetings of the Faculty of Commerce.
Chronicle/Spring _983 13 Commerce Division Chairwoman Anne Wicks suggests key
ways to keep a Division going and
keep a high interest level among
the members of your committee.
— It is very important to have
specific projects, tasks or goals
which you are trying to meet each
year.
— It is essential to have people
on your committee who want to
be there. If you have to drag
someone out to a meeting, you
really aren't going to get much
enthusiasm and thus you won't
achieve much.
— Delegate tasks. One person
cannot do everything. If you have
a number of people who each
have a small task to do, and if you
can coordinate them, you will get
much more accomplished.
— Hold regular meetings (say bimonthly) to discuss progress with
your projects or events, and keep
minutes of these meetings for
future reference. The boardroom
format (with wine, coffee and
munchies provided) is quite effective. It is essential to have a
specific agenda and try to keep the
meeting brief (say one to one and
a half hours).

FOCUS
ON THE
FACULTY
OF ARTS
There are no doubts in the mind of
Dean Robert Will about the value to
the University of the faculty he
heads.
"I think it's safe to say," he says,
"that if there were no Faculty of
Arts, it would be difficult to envisage
there being a University of British
Columbia.
"The liberal arts . . . the humanities and social sciences, call them
what you will, are absolutely essential to the basic purpose of the
University. The institution that ignores or downgrades them is not
worthy of the name university."
The dean has been heartened recently by the fact that the Vancouver
Foundation, without direct representations from the University, decided
to divide $1 million between B.C.'s
three public universities for support
of the humanities. (UBC got $500,000
and SFU and UVic each received
$250,000.)
"The foundation's decision was
far-thinking and enlightened," he
said. "They realize that the humanities are at the heart of university-
level studies and have sought to
redress some of the difficulties we've
encountered in recent years in terms
of retrenchment and inflation.
"I'm enormously encouraged by
this kind of unsolicited support and 1
regard it as a vote of confidence in
the quality of the programs we
offer. '
Dean Will believes there are a good
many myths circulating about the
Faculty of Arts and what it does.
One of these is that students are
turning away from liberal arts studies
in favor of degrees offered in career-
oriented faculties.
First, Dean Will points out that
enrolment in Arts continues to increase annually. "Our overall enrolment is up 5.16 per cent in the current year to 6,069 students. We're
still far and away the largest faculty
at UBC."
Last year, the dean adds, 4,925
enrolled in Bachelor of Arts programs. This year, B.A. students total
uchanan Building and Toivcr are home of Faculty of Arts at UBC
5,265. "That's an increase of 340
students, or 6.9 per cent over last
year."
The dean likes to think that such
increases are another vote of confidence in the quality and range of
liberal arts studies at UBC. "We offer
a wide range of programs spanning
the humanities, the social sciences
and the fine arts," he said, "and I'm
prepared to defend the quality of any
of them to anyone."
Dean Will admits there is a trend to
place more emphasis on science and
technology   at   the  expense  of  the
liberal arts. "Universities," he says,
"are increasingly being asked to
dance to the tune of manpower studies and their dire predictions of a
shortage of this or that type of professional or trained operative.
"But I'm not aware of any recent
study that Sv>unds the alarm over a
possible shortage of educated people. Maybe there's a need for one.
I'm confident that this university is
too strong, too sure of its responsibilities,    to   reflect   baldly   all   the

Chronicle/Spring 1983 19 UBC reports
UBC's 1982-83 Winter Session enrolment stands at an all-time high of 27,309 students, a 2.46
per cent increase over last year, when 26,651 students were registered. The Winter Session total
includes 24,671 daytime students and 1,478 students registered for correspondence courses. The
enrolment total is made up of 75 per cent full-time and 25 per cent part-time students.
pressures of the market place and
society that now bear down on it."
At the same time, Dean Will agrees
that it's understandable, considering
current economic conditions, that
people should want knowledge and
know-how that can help improve the
economy. "But," he adds, "I think
people are mistaken in underestimating the importance and relevance
of the liberal arts and a liberal education in resolving society's immediate
problems.
"Most critics of arts faculties fail to
recognize the centrality of the liberal
arts to the well-being and development of professional faculties. No
university can achieve excellence if it
does not have strong core faculties of
arts and science."
Which brings Dean Will to another
prevalent myth about arts faculties —
the one that characterizes them as
ivory towers isolated from other UBC
faculties and from the public generally.
'In addition to the degree programs we offer through 20 departments and three schools," he said,
"we are a service organization for
every other faculty on campus, except Law. Some 40 per cent of the
students who are taught annually in
the Faculty of Arts are registered in
other UBC faculties."
And as for the criticism that Arts is
isolated from the public generally,
Dean Will points out that his faculty
offers significant services to the
public through museum and art exhibits, theatrical and musical performances and a wide range of free public lectures.
Last year, 140,000 visitors paid to
see the UBC Museum of Anthropology's magnificent collection of
Northwest Coast Indian artifacts, as
well as displays from other world cultures.
Another 20,500 persons, many of
them school children and their
teachers, visited the museum for
special events such as lectures,
demonstrations and performances.
The Department of Music staged 46
faculty concerts and 90 student
recitals in the last academic year and
student ensembles gave 36 off-campus performances in areas ranging
from the Kootenays to Vancouver
Island.
In addition, some 21,000 persons
attended    a    winter   and    summer
season of plays in the Frederic Wood
Theatre and many hundreds viewed
eight exhibits in the cramped facilities of the Fine Arts Gallery in the
basement of the Library. It's difficult
to put a fine point on the number
who attended lectures because most
are free.
Another myth that Dean Will
wants dispelled about his faculty is
the one to the effect that it provides
no training for careers in the professions. "The arts faculty at UBC trains
librarians, home economists, musicians, social workers and archivists,
as well as experts in the translation of
French and German," he said. "And
if we get the funding, we'll be offering a postgraduate program in journalism next year."
Many people, the dean said,
believe that arts graduates are not
trained for careers and that each
year's graduating class is largely
unemployable.
"The fact is that only about 50 per
cent of arts faculty graduates in any
one year are available for employment," he said. Some 40 per cent
continue in some form of training —
in graduate or professional schools as
architects, teachers, lawyers, dental
hygienists and doctors. The residual
ten per cent are not available for
employment, for one reason or
another.
"And the last time the Universitv
did a survey of graduates in 1981, '
the dean adds, "it showed that the
unemployment rate for 1980 arts
graduates was only 5.4 per cent,
which is a signficant decline from the
9.9 rate that obtained in 1977.
"I'm not trying to duck the fact
that the unemployment rate for arts
graduates mav have deteriorated
again in the light of current economic
conditions," he said, "but I'm
prepared to bet that there has been a
significant deterioration in every
field, including the professions."
Despite the fact of retrenchment,
Dean Will doesn't feel his faculty has
been treated badly. "We're feeling
the effects like every other faculty,"
he says, "but 1 think each faculty has
to guard against the assumption that
it has a rignt to be funded.
"I feel very strongly that the work
we do is basic and critical, not just to
the goal achievement of other faculties, but also to the preservation of
our culture and civilization. We must
strive to get that point across. If we
don't receive as much money as we
need, we must work that much
harder to maintain the quality of
what we do."
The frightening thing about retrenchment, Dean Will says, is that a slip
in the quality of education often goes
unnoticed or is less dramatic than a
cut in programs.
"The result is that one may soon
become accustomed to doing things
less well, and perhaps even lose the
resolve to put things right at a later
date. This year, we have larger class
sizes and a smaller number of sections offered, which restricts course
options open to students because of
timetabling constraints.
"Inevitably, all these factors affect
the quality of education. We are also
not able to replace many key faculty
members in important areas of
study. If that continues, we may well
lose our reputation for excellence in
areas which took decades to build
up."
Looking to the future and possible
academic expansion, Dean Will again
mentions the proposed journalism
program, as well as a program in atmospheric science, which would be
offered jointly by the Arts and
Science faculties.
"I think most future expansion in
Arts is likely to take place within
existing programs rather than as
completely new ventures," he said.
"We also have a responsibility to expand continuing education programs
in areas such as social work and
librarianship.
The diversity of programs which
characterizes the Faculty of Arts is
really one of its strengths, Dean Will
said. "Initiative for change resides in
the faculty's departments and
schools and my involvement in programming is either reactive or persuasive.
"My main task is to obtain the
funds needed to do the faculty's
work and seeing to it that the human
and financial resources of the faculty
are allocated and deployed to the
best advantage. I also have a major
responsibility in the maintenance of
academic standards and the excellence of our programs," he said.
"And one other thing," he adds
quickly. "I take great pleasure, from
time to time, in waving the faculty's
flag."

Few universities in North America can equal UBC in terms of the range of programs it offers
in the field of continuing education, President Douglas Kenny commented recently. He was
commenting on an annual report which showed that more than 91,000 persons in all parts of
the province registered for continuing education programs in the last academic year.

PEOPLE
Dr. Robert Flores of UBC's Department of Hispanic and Italian Studies
is one of only seven Canadian university researchers who have been
awarded prestigious Guggenheim
Fellowships for 1982-83.
The fellowships, awarded annually
by the John Simon Guggenheim
Memorial Foundation of New York,
are awarded on the basis of demonstrated past accomplishments and
strong promise for the future.
The award to Dr. Flores, which will
allow him to take a year's leave of
absence to devote full-time to
research, is the only 1982-83 fellowship awarded in Western Canada.
Dr. Flores, who has been a UBC
faculty member for eight years, is
widely known for his research on the
work of Miguel de Cervantes (1547-
1616), the Spanish author who is best
known for one of the masterpieces of
literature, Don Quixote, widely
regarded as the predecessor of the
modern novel.
Although best known for Don
Quixote, Cervantes was also the
author of at least six other works
covering a wide range of literary
genre, including poetry, plays and
short stories as well as three novels.
Because the original manuscripts of
Cervantes' works have been lost, Dr.
Flores has visited a number of North
American and European centres to
work on rare first editions of Cervantes' works.
His aim is to recover Cervantes' orthography, the vocabulary, spelling
and punctuation of the original
manuscripts in order to prepare the
first "old-spelling" edition of the
Spanish author's works.
This isn't as easy a task as might
appear on the surface. Cervantes had
no control over his works after selling
them to a publisher and some 18 different compositors imposed their
own orthography on the first editions.
Born in Mexico, Dr. Flores is a
graduate of the Universities of Mexico and Oregon and Cambridge University in England, where he was
awarded the degree of Doctor of
Philosophy in 1972. He has published a number of books and articles
based on his research, including important material on the first printers
and compositors of Cervantes'
works.
He has been honored by the Canadian Association of Hispanists for
two books judged to be the best
works on Hispanic studies published
in the years 1974-77 by a faculty
member teaching at a Canadian university.
Political Science professor Mike
Wallace has been selected as the first
winner of the Karl W. Deutsch
Award in Peace Research by the
World Academy of Art and Science
and the Peace Science Society.
The award commemorates the life
work of Karl Deutsch, Stanfield Professor of International Peace at Harvard University.
The award citation described Prof.
Wallace of UBC as "an outstanding
young scholar whose work is especially notable for its contributions to
peace science and international relations."
Dr. David Solkin, an assistant professor in UBC's fine arts department,
was responsible for organizing an exhibit this fall at the Tate Gallery, one
of England's most distinguished galleries. Dr. Solkin has also written the
250-page catalogue that accompanies
the exhibit.
The exhibit is entitled "Richard
Wilson, R.A." (Richard Wilson was a
British artist who lived from 1714 to
1782.)
Prof. A.D. "Tony" Scott of UBC's
Department of Economics and Dr.
William Armstrong, a former deputy
president of the University, were
among 63 Canadians recently appointed to the Order of Canada for
distinctive contributions to Canadian
society.
Prof. Scott, who has been a faculty
member since 1953 and who headed
the economics department from 1965
to 1969, is a key figure in an on-going
study of the economics of resource
management, which began in 1976
with a grant of nearly $1 million from
the Canada Council.
Prof.   J.   Lewis   Robinson  of  the
Department of Geography was one
of nine recipients of the Distinguished Teaching Award at University
level awarded by the National Council for Geographic Education, an international organization of
geography teachers at primary,
secondary and university levels.
Prof. Robinson was the only Canadian to receive the award in 1982.
Prof. June Gow of the history
department was named presidentelect of the Canadian Research Institute for the Advancement of
Women when it met in Ottawa last
November. She takes office in
November, 1983.
CRIAW is a national organization

UBC TEAM
FINDS
GOLD
IN TOMB
Few things in history have fired the
human imagination more than gold.
The ancients attributed magical
properties to it, medieval alchemists
attempted to create gold out of baser
metals, it was a major spur in the first
European explorations of the Western Hemisphere and the gold rushes
of the 19th century gave rise to incredible tales of human endurance
and hardship.
A little of the excitement that a gold
discovery can engender was experienced this past summer by a UBC
team of excavators, who for more
than a decade have been working at a
site on the south coast of Turkey with
the aim of recreating the history and
dailv life of the town of Anemurium,
which flourished in the third and
fourth centuries AD.
The gold discovery took place in
June during the excavation of the last
of the four churches being investigated on the site. Prof. James Russell
of UBC's Department of Classics and
director of the project says there's
good reason to believe that the
building was the cathedral church of
the town and was destroyed in an
earthquake about the end of the sixth
century.
When much of the rubble that had
fallen in on the main part of the
church was removed, the excavators
found in one corner of the building a
tomb about one metre high resting
on the church floor. Workmen began
the laborious job of sifting the contents of the tomb for artifacts and
skeletal remains.
On the lowest level of the tomb,
gold objects started to appear. In less
than a day, a total of 34 items had
been found — a pair of earrings and
32 beads, crosses and plaques which
had originally been attached to fabric
of gold thread to form a collar or
necklace which decorated the first
person buried in the tomb.
"It really is exciting to see gold
objects appear during the sifting process," Prof. Russell said. "Most
metal objects found on ancient sites
are corroded or encrusted with rust,

BAROQUE
MUSIC
REVIVED
Music that hadn't been heard for
more than 200 years was revived at
UBC early in January when the Vancouver Baroque Ensemble played five
18th-century chamber works for
flute.
Leading the ensemble at the concert in UBC's Music Building was
Prof. Paul Douglas of UBC's music
department, who found the works in
three major European musical archives while on study leave in 1979-80.
The works performed by the ensemble were selected by Prof.
Douglas from about 50 compositions
which he found in musical libraries in
France, Germany and Austria.
Prof. Douglas, who teaches the
flute and chamber music generally to
music department students, said he
went to Europe for the express purpose of seeking out the manuscripts
22 ChxomcldSpring 1983 UBC reports
A major bibliographic project is under way in UBC's Main Library to honor Vancouver's
100th birthday in 1986. The two-year project, funded with a grant of $72,000 from a national
agency, will result in an on-line data base of information about the city, utilizing material
from a variety of sources, including UBC, the Vancouver City Archives and the B.C. Provincial Archives.
but gold comes up gleaming. All
that's needed is a light brushing to
restore its original brilliance."
One of the mysteries attached to
the tomb in which the gold was
found is the fact that the excavators
found the remains of as many as 12
other bodies in it. There were at least
four bodies on the lowest level of the
tomb, including the one which was
decorated with the gold necklace,
and some eight other bodies on top
of the original burial.
"Multiple burials are not at all common in this period in this part of the
world," said Prof. Russell, "and I
can't even hazard a guess as to why
there were successive burials in the
same tomb.
"I have no doubt that the person
who wore the collar with the gold objects attached was a Christian
because of the grave's location in the
church and from the decoration of
the jewellery with crosses and other
Christian motifs."
Paradoxically, the gold objects will
be of little value in furthering the
main objective of the archeological
team, which is to recreate the history
of Anemurium from the first through
the seven centuries AD.
"There's a popular misconception
that modern arcneologists set out to
find gold and other valuable
objects," Prof. Russell said. "The
reality is that if one wants to
reconstruct the history of a town like
Anemurium, it's the humble objects
like lamps, pots, copper coins and
belt buckles that are used for accurate
dating, first because there is an adequate number of samples of each of
these artifacts and, second, because
changes in style and decoration permit us to assign each to a specific
period of time.
"On the other hand, valuables like
the gold objects we found are unique. They were made for a specific
individual at a specific point in time.
We'll never be able to pinpoint when
the gold objects were made because
we are unlikely to find other closely
similar examples for purposes of
comparison."
After more than a decade of work
on the site, the team has excavated a
representative selection of buildings
and tombs and is in a position to
begin recreating the history of the
city, which at its height housed some
10,000 people in the fourth century.
The one remaining major task on
the site is the consolidation and
preservation of floor mosaics and
tomb paintings, for which Prof.
Russell  said  he  hopes  for  the  col
laboration of the Turkish Department
of Antiquities.
About a dozen Canadian and European scholars will contribute material
on the history of the city in the form
of monographs that will appear over
the next few years. Prof. Russell feels
the final product will be a major contribution to the archeology and history of the period.
"A lot of scholarly effort has been
put into the archeology of the classical Greek period on the one hand
and the high Roman empire period
on the other," he said. "The later
period we are working in has been
rather neglected; so our work should
fill a major gap in the archeology of
this period and this region."
Already the outlines of the citv's
history are forming in Prof. Russell's
mind. From a thriving commercial
and cultural centre in the third and
fourth centuries, the city gradually
deteriorated over a period of some
200 years until by about 600 AD the
aqueducts which had supplied the city and its baths with water were no
longer operating and the few remaining inhabitants were again drawing
water from wells.

or published first editions of 18th-
century chamber music for flute by a
number of obscure 18th-century
composers.
"I knew the compositions existed," Prof. Douglas said, "because
there are references to them in the
literature of the day. There's no problem gaining access to the works
because each of the archives has a
card catalogue of its holdings, much
like the card catalogue in our own
UBC library.
"Once you've identified what you
want to see, the archive librarians
bring the manuscripts to you and will
arrange to have copies made of those
you want to take away for study or
editing."
Musical archives contain a vast
store of works by lesser-known composers, Prof. Douglas said, and it's
been his experience that much of it
deserves to remain unknown. "I've
simply rejected many works for
which we have references," he said,
"because it's apparent, once you see
the manuscript, that it's not of a sufficiently high standard to be considered for revival."
The 50 or so works he brought back
from Europe are of a sufficiently high
standard to warrant study, editing
and,   possibly,   publication,   Prof
Douglas said. "Listeners will find
they are charming and graceful
works by composers who were either
in the Baroque tradition or who were
flirting with the new musical forms
that were to become part of the
classical music tradition."
The compositions also have value
for teaching and research purposes,
Prof. Douglas said. Students of the
flute have to learn a standard repertoire of works by such great names as
Bach and Mozart, he said, and it
stimulates their imaginations and
gives them a sense of accomplishment if they occasionally get an opportunity to play a composition that
hasn't been performed for some 200
years.
"And pieces by obscure composers
can sometimes provide clues about
where the great composers got their
ideas and training," he said.
"Mozart, for instance, had to study
with someone and it's important that
scholars see and hear the sources
from which he sprang."
The January concert opened with a
trio sonata for two flutes and con-
tinuo by Jacob Kleinknecht, whose
music falls into the same category as
Carl Phillip Emmanuel Bach, one of
the leading figures in the transition
period from the baroque to the clas
sical.
This was followed by a sonata for
flute and continue) by French composer Michel Blavet, one of the
leading flautists of his day, who was
invited to the court of Frederick the
Great to compose and teach his patron the flute. Blavet declined the appointment and remained in Paris as
the chief flautist for the Paris opera.
After intermission, the ensemble
played the major work of the concert,
a seven-movement nocture for flute,
viola and horn by Franz Hoffmeister,
who was a friend and collaborator of
Mozart's.
Prof. Douglas is also editing a
number of works by Blavet, Molter,
Ivansciz and Hoffmeister, among
others, for publication by firms in
Ottawa and London.
"Editing is a very specialized task
that aims at making a composition
useful for modern performance purposes," Prof. Douglas said. "I found
that the unpublished manuscripts I
brought back contained many, many
musical errors, missing bars, and inconsistencies in articulation and
dynamics. It takes a good deal of
musical detective work to put the
piece together in a consistent way so
that it can be performed."
Chronicle'S/;ri//tf 7.W3 23 UBC reports
UBC now has two University Professors, an honor conferred only rarely on faculty members
who have achieved special distinction in their discipline. Dr. Charles McDowell, former head
of the chemistry department, had the honor conferred on him in 1981, and in February, 1983,
Dr. Michael Shaw, who steps down as UBC's academic vice-president in June, became the
third University Professor. The first was the late Prof. Roy Daniells.
Home Economics moves into new building
A brand-new building for UBC's
School of Home Economics was officially opened on March 10, sandwiched between the campus visit of
Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip
on March 9 and UBC's 1983 Open
House on March 11, 12 and 13.
The move by the school from its
old building at the corner of University Boulevard and the East Mall to a
site a stone's throw south on the East
Mall means a long-awaited modernization of facilities for faculty and
students, according to the school's
director, Dr. Roy Rodgers.
"There has been a substantial
upgrading of labs and teaching
areas," says Dr. Rodgers. "The biggest improvement has been in research facilities for faculty and
graduate students. For instance, we
now have seven individual nutrition
research labs, in comparision to two
in the old building."
The new building also has a radioisotope lab for various kinds of radiation investigation, a cold laboratory
GOLD - Continued from previous page
"It's quite clear that when the
Arabs expanded on the perimeter of
the Mediterannean basin in the
seventh century, they were not taking over a prosperous or vigorous
society," Prof. Russell said. "By that
time, Anemurium was on the skids,
partly, I suspect, as the result of
plague and partly as the result of an
economic decline."
The discovery of gold at Anemurium led to a flurry of local and national interest in Turkey during the
summer. Local authorities placed a
24-hour armed guard on the site after
the discovery, and members of the
team found themselves being interviewed by reporters from national
newspapers and radio stations.
And the discovery had one other
immediate and positive benefit.
Shortly after the gold was found, the
site was visited by a three-star
general from the Turkish air force,
who was conducting an inspection
nearby.
After Prof. Russell had given him a
tour of the ancient city and shown
him the gold objects, the general
remarked that the three kilometres of
road leading to the site were in very
bad shape.
The next day, Prof. Russell said, an
army of workmen, trucks, bulldozers
and other machinery appeared and
in quick time paved the bumpy road
leading to the excavation site.
with a freezer attached for work on
frozen sections, a trace elements lab
and two general labs.
"In the family science area of the
school, we now also have a double
observation lab with closed circuit
television and sound capabilities
which will allow faculty to carry out a
wide range of studies involving the
observation of human behavior,"
says Dr. Rodgers.
He adds that one area of the school
that has been expanded in the new
building is textiles and design.
"Expansion in this area was long
overdue," he says. "Joanna Staniszkis (an internationally-known tapestry artist who teaches design in the
school) was functioning in an incredibly inadequate working area.
She now has facilities appropriate for
someone of her standing."
UBC's School of Home Economics
is divided into two general areas:
Human Nutrition (foods and dietetics) and Family Science (human
development, family science and
clothing, textiles and design). There
are about 270 undergraduates and 15
graduate students enrolled in the
school this year.
"In terms of teaching laboratory
space, we have about the same as we
did in the old building," says Dr.
Rodgers. "But again, there's been a
marked upgrading of facilities.
"In addition to the regular classroom space, there are six smaller
rooms which seat four or five people
that are geared for teaching or project
work in small groups.
' 'There is also an audio-visual centre with a preview room and a darkroom. This is a particularly good addition for the school, since we tend to
use a lot of audio-visual equipment in
teaching and the reporting of research. '
Dr. Rodgers says that many people
may have misconceptions about the
kind of study done in Home Economics.
"Home Economics involves the
study of a number of life science and
behavioral science areas. The field of
human nutrition, for example, is
chiefly an application of biochemistry. Our students must have a
strong background in biology, chemistry and physiology. Many students
in human nutrition also take elective
courses in health sciences, such as
pathology, epidemiology and anatomy.
"Family science and human development involve the application of
sociology, anthropology, psychology
and economics in a highly multidis-
ciplinary way.
"This building is an excellent representation of this mix of the life and
behavioral sciences."
Foundation aids Arts
A $500,000 grant to UBC from the
Vancouver Foundation for the support of the humanities will be used to
purchase library materials, fund
short-term teaching appointments at
the graduate and undergraduate
levels and provide support for pre-
and post-doctoral students.
UBC has received half of a $1
million humanities grant from the
Vancouver Foundation, the private
charitable organization established in
1943 which now has assets of approximately $110 million. Simon Fraser
University and the University of Victoria will each receive $250,000 from
the foundation.
UBC's President, Dr. Douglas Kenny, said the University was deeply
grateful to the foundation for its
grant, which he described as "both
timely and significant."
"In a period of financial retrenchment and increasing emphasis on
career-oriented university programs,
the trustees of the Vancouver Foundation have had the wisdom and
foresight to provide support for academic studies which are essential to
the mission of this University."
In announcing the grants, Vancouver Foundation executive director
Dr. J. David McGann said the foundation's board, at its final 1982
meeting, "looked at available funds
in the light of major concerns we've
had about the economic problems
facing universities, especially as they
affect studies in languages, history,
philosophy and the other courses in
the humanities, which are not only at
the traditional core of university
learning but which are also the basis
for all other higher education.
"The importance to the community over the long pull of maintaining
these programs of study, backed by
strong library resources, is something our board did not want to see
overlooked at this time."

Keith Robertson, BSF '58,
November, 1982 in
Revelstoke. A resident of
Nakusp and Castlegar for the
28 Chronicle/Spring 1983 A tribute
I should like to write a
small tribute to my classmate
in Arts '23, Dorothy Walsh,
who died this past summer in
Cummin gton,
Massachusetts, where she
had lived since her retirement
from teaching at Smith
College. Arts '23 had many
members who later had
distinguished careers, but Kip
(as we called her) had one of
the best in university
teaching.
Dorothy was small,
intelligent, and puckish. She
majored in philosophy, and
her poems in the 1922
Chapbook — the first little
collection of verse by UBC
undergraduates, who wrote
and published it by
themselves — perhaps
indicate the path she would
tread. I quote her poem
"There's Music in the Valley":
There's music in the valley
Broken with laughter and
tears —
Lovable human music,
Shaken with fears.
He cannot go down to the
valley
Where the linnet thrills,
He wanders enslaved and
embittered
On the lonesome hills;
For he heard in a fairy
moment,
When the moon had
waned,
The cruelty of a music
Perfect and unattained.
After she received her BA,
she went to the University of
Toronto, and in 1925 received
an MA. In 1935 she received a
PhD from Bryn Mawr. She
spent a year and a half in pre-
doctoral research at the
Psychological Institute of the
University of Berlin, and
travelled widely in Europe.
She taught at Hood, Wells,
Bryn Mawr, and Smith
Colleges.
Her book, Literature and
Knowledge (Wesleyan, 1969),
may be best summarized by
quoting from the fly-leaf:
Miss Walsh arrives at an
understanding of the
relationship between. . . .
Dorothy "Kip" Walsh
literature and. . . .
knowledge. Her arguments
are forceful; her
observations, incisive and
fresh; her approach and
style, wonderfully
civilized.
I am informed that friends
of Dorothy in the United
States have collected all her
published articles, which will,
they hope, enable them to get
these out as a book. I hope
they can do so. As a friend of
hers in those distant years,
1919-1923, I have prepared
this brief memorial with
affection and deference. In
conclusion I quote from a
letter to me, with his
permission, Geoffrey Bruun
(BA '24), now of Ithaca, N.Y.
In many ways Kip seems to
me the most truly original
of our group. She is the
only one, certainly, who
made philosophy her
major, and she must have
impressed her teachers.
"How the death of an old
friend diminishes us" Kip
wrote in the last letter I had
from her. You and I have
watched the Chapbook
group dwindle — Lionel
Stevenson, Alfred Rive,
now Sally Creighton, and
Kip. And Phyllis Mackay,
whom I always think of as a
part of our little group. We
two remain, to wage on
their behalf, a lost battle
with oblivion.

Chronicle/Spring 1983 29 President's Residence
to become
town-gown' centre
One of the offices of UBC Botanical Garden situated in the President's house.
The University of B.C.'s Board
of Governors has established a
committee to raise funds in the
private sector to renovate the President's Residence on the UBC
campus.
Chairing the committee will be
Vancouver lawyer David McLean,
chairman of the Board's property
committee, who said he would
inaugurate the fund drive by making a personal gift of $10,000
to the residence fund through
a family organization, the McLean
McCuaig Foundation.
The renovated house will be
occupied by UBC's president-designate, Dr. George Pedersen, and
his family when he becomes
UBC's chief executive officer on
Julyl.
Mr. McLean said that the Board
of Governors, when it invited Dr.
Pedersen to become president of
UBC, had asked him to consider
living in the house, which was
built for UBC presidents in the
early 1950s.
"Dr. Pedersen has agreed to live
in the house," Mr. McLean said,
"on the understanding that the
amount of money spent on renovations   will   be   the   minimum

required to make it habitable and
that it will be used as a 'town-
gown' centre for ensuring that the
University has close contacts and a
good relationship with a wide
range of individuals and community organizations."
The Board has authorized an
appropriation of $200,000 to provide for two projects — the relocation of the offices of the UBC
Botanical Garden, which has used
the house as its headquarters since
1975, and minimal rehabilitation
of the residence to restore it to residential condition from its present
institutional use.
The presidential residence was
built in 1950-51 at a cost of
$61,219. It was first occupied by
UBC's then president, Dr. Norman MacKenzie, until his retirement in 1962. Successive UBC
presidents lived in the house until
1969, when the late Dr. Walter
Gage was appointed president. A
bachelor, President Gage elected
to continue to live in an off-campus apartment.
Mr. McLean said he was
confident that the funds required
to restore the President's Residence could be raised privately in
a relatively short period of time.
He said he had been assured by
the UBC Alumni Association that
it would assist in the fund-raising
effort.
He said he intended to recommend to the Board at its next
meeting that the residence be
named Norman MacKenzie
House, in honor of its first occupant.
"Everyone I've spoken to about
this project has expressed enthusiasm for it and for the fund-raising
effort,"   Mr.   McLean   said.
Those wishing to donate to the fund
to restore the President's Residence can
do so through the Alumni UBC Fund.
