Highlights of the Alumni Association's 1985-86 Annual Report
• Alumni played an active role in the
selection of UBC President David
Strangway, who was installed
November 2, 1985.
• Bernard Ghert, MBA'66, President
and CEO of Cadillac Fairview Corp.,
received the Alumni Award of Distinction at a luncheon jointly sponsored
by the Association and the Vancouver
Board of Trade, April 10, 1986. Mezzo-
soprano Judith Forst, BMus'65, will
also be presented with this award in
the Fall of 1986.
• Programmes: Active year for both
Divisions and Branches. Branch representatives from as far away as Paris
visited the campus during Homecoming for workshops and activities.
Homecoming itself was a great success, with the Alumni Association
helping the Alma Mater Society sponsor several events. Highlights
included the Great Trekker Dinner, at
which Frank Joubin, BA'36, MA'43,
was presented with the Great Trekker
Award, and the Arts '20 Relay race.
More than 1,150 alumni and friends
attended reunions in 1985-86, compared to 700 the previous year.
• Fund: Achieved fund raising goal of
$1.2 million ($911,948 from alumni,
$242,816 from non-alumni and corporate donors). Through phonathons,
251 volunteer alumni and students
raised $105,263 in pledges. The Allocations Committee and the Walter H.
Gage Memorial Fund disbursed over
$70,000 in funds to students and student-related projects. The Alumni
Scholarships and Bursaries Committee
awarded 109 students with scholarships and bursaries. A new club, the
Chancellor's Circle, was created to
honor major donors. Members of this
club, and Wesbrook Society members,
attended several functions. Two special campaigns got underway — a
campaign to raise funds for the David
Lam Management Research Library;
and a campaign to raise money for a
Medical School and Alumni Centre.
• Communications: The Communications Committee commissioned a professional Chronicle readership survey,
the results of which were used to initiate an advertising sales campaign for
the magazine: Survey data revealed
high readership interest in the Chronicle and provided data useful to the
Association's marketing efforts.
The Speakers Bureau, a community
service operated by the Association
for the University, arranged almost
280 speaking engagements for community groups wanting campus
A committee has been established
by the Association and the University
Administration to examine communications needs of the two organizations.
• Alumni and Development Information Systems: Formerly called the
Records Department, the area saw a
change in management and staffing in
the past year. G. A. (Dean) Francey
was appointed Manager, replacing
Ann Marantz, who is now Assistant

Continuing Education
Celebrates 50 Years
This year, UBC's Centre for Continuing Education celebrates its 50th
Anniversary. From its inception in
1936 to the mid-1960s, the department
offered a province-wide program of
non-credit general adult education
courses. After local school boards,
with UBC providing leadership, set
up their own programs, the Continuing Education Department began
offering general non-credit courses in
liberal and scientific studies, public
affairs and community programs.
The department, named the Centre
for Continuing Education in 1970, has
also provided a proving ground on
which programs not yet established as
academic departments could be
tested. Some of these, notably music
and theatre, did lead to the establishment of formal credit programs.
McNulty Sees
Greater Role
for Alumni
By Tim Platts
It's Wednesday afternoon and the
counselling office at Magee Secondary
School is a buzz of activity — students
seeking counselling, begging late
slips, or just wanting someone to talk
to. Right in the middle of it all is Bill
McNulty, BPE'68, MPE'70, MA'83,
counsellor and teacher.
McNulty, who became President of
the UBC Alumni Association in May
after serving as Vice-President to
Elbert S. Reid, likes to keep busy. In
addition to a full slate at Magee and a
substantial volunteer commitment
with the Alumni Association, he is
also active in community organizations and municipal politics.
After attending high school,
McNulty came to UBC where he studied biology and physical education
and was active in volleyball, track and
field and the PEUS yearbook. He was
a coach and assistant track instructor,
UBC intramural director and won two
Varsity pins. After graduation he married, settled in Richmond, and began
teaching at Churchill Secondary
School. He joined the staff at Magee
ten years ago. While working there,
he returned to UBC and earned his
second Master's degree part-time.
McNulty, who describes himself as
a "volunteer with a professional
approach", has been president of the
B.C. School Counsellors' Association
and the Canadian Track and Field
Association. He has also been a fund
raiser for B.C. Athletics, and the director of Sports B.C. The holder of three
degrees from UBC and a member of
the Thunderbird and Wesbrook Societies, McNulty was always interested
in the Alumni Association: "I offered
to help... UBC and athletics gave me a
great deal and I wanted to give something back to the University."
His opportunity came when he
served on the Divisions Council and
the Alumni Advisory Committee
where he was able to influence the
direction of the Association. He is
enthusiastic about his presidency.
"I thrive on a challenge. It is my
desire to encourage new ideas and
provide an impetus to people. We
would like to see the Association work
towards having a viable role parallel to
that of the University."
Of the Alumni Association, he says
he would like to encourage an
increase in the number of volunteers.
"The Association needs to get people
involved: alumni, students and even
parents of students. We also "have to
continue to make the University
aware of its role in the community...
to be accessible to all people."
McNulty believes one of the Association's major goals is to build support
for the University. "In a sense, (UBC
President) Dr. Strangway and I are
working towards common goals, only
he's doing it from the perspective of
the university, and I'm approaching it
from the perspective of the alumni."
Bill McNulty's final goal is one of
organization: "I hope that we can
develop an association with the University , to achieve the mission statement of the Alumni Association,
which states that the Association's
role is to 'facilitate the relationship of
graduates with their alma mater and
to support the University in its pursuit
of excellence."  ■

Chronicle! Summer 1986    7 After taking a year off from teaching to try his hand at
business, the President and CEO of Cadillac Fairview
Corporation never looked back.
Bernard Ghert — Doing
What He Does Best
By Andrew Purvis
TWENTY YEARS AGO, when Bernard "Bernie" Ghert, MB A'66, left
his lecturing assistantship at UBC
and travelled to Montreal to take his
first tentative steps in the rough and
tumble world of business and finance, his
future boss greeted him with one not too delicate question, "What in the world do we
want with a professor?"
Since then the winner of this year's UBC
Alumni Award of Distinction has helped
transform a small 40-employee real estate
outfit into one of North America's largest
development empires, served by more than
1,800 employees and with assets exceeding $3
billion. Now the President and Chief Executive Officer of the Cadillac Fairview Corporation of Toronto, Ghert has resoundingly
quashed any doubts about the suitability of a
so-called professor for the job.
"My mathematical and analytical skills
were useful from the start," says Ghert, who
was in Vancouver recently to accept his
award. Ghert took math and physics at
McGill before studying, and later teaching,
real estate economics at UBC. Rigorous academic training seems at the root of his rapid
rise to the top.
"I was in the right place at the right time,"
recounts Ghert. "In the late fifties and early
sixties real estate economics was becoming
much more analytical and less descriptive. I
was lucky enough to have the mathematical
background to cope with the transition."
Ghert the academic is not hard to imagine.
His slight build, modest smile, and quiet,
thoughtful tone of voice still conjure the fastidious prof, tucked away in a dusty, book-
lined office. But beneath the professorial exterior lies the toughness of (his term) "someone
who's been around." Ghert is quick with a
story to illustrate.
Twenty years ago, shortly after being hired
on at Fairview, he was sitting in a Montreal
boardroom with a handful of people, negotiating at length over an issue of which the
8   Chronicle/'Summer 1986
significance, to an outsider at any rate, was
less than apparent. Into the room marched
Leo Kolber, now Senator Kolber and Chairman of Cadillac Fairview, then the president
of the company which had hired the 27-year-
old Ghert a few weeks before. "Why bother
with that?" Kolber wanted to know.
Ghert was merciless. "Leo, I don't think
you know what we're talking about."
Kolber replied, "You're right," and he left
the room. The two have been fast friends ever
"It's more important who you work for
than what you do," says Ghert, summing up
the experience.
BERNIE GHERT WAS born in Lethbridge, Alberta in 1939. He left the prairies at age 17, took his BSc at McGill, and soon
began casting about for a suitable career.
Physics and meteorology were early possibilities.
"But I didn't think I'd make the world's
greatest theoretical physicist," says Ghert,
"and if you can't be the best then why do
something at all. . ."
His decision to go into real estate came
about by chance. After graduating from
McGill in 1960 he was in Vancouver visiting a
sister when one day he decided to drive to
Point Grey, take in the campus, and perhaps
chat with a few professors about the possibilities for graduate study.
"It was UBC recruiting weather," recalls
Ghert of the miraculously sunny August
afternoon. His second stroke of luck was to
run into professor of real estate Philip White.
"White had a sense of vision, a purpose,
which attracted me very much," says Ghert.
Moreover White's Department of Urban Land
Economics at UBC was then considered one
of the best of its kind in North America.
For the next six years Ghert studied,
researched, and lectured under Philip White's
demanding eye.
"Probably the most significant thing he
taught me," Ghert reflects, "was the importance of focusing on principles in order to
ensure that the details are determined by
them, and not vice versa."
Bernard Ghert:
'Who you work for is more
important than what you do.' He now calls this approach a cornerstone of
his business philosophy.
IN AUGUST OF 1966, Ghert arranged to
take a year off from UBC. "I didn't much
like teaching," he says "and just wanted to
make sure business wasn't for me."
Making no commitments, Ghert joined the
Fairview Corporation as Assistant Treasurer.
By Christmas he had determined to stay.
"It was the excitement... I was given a lot
of responsibility quite early; I did the job, and
they gave me more."
He became President and Chief Operating
Officer in 1981, and Chief Executive Officer in
As an executive Ghert is a man of principle.
He has been called a born again capitalist for
his outspoken views on the concentration of
economic power in Canada.
Last September he started efforts to convince the government to curb takeovers of
financial institutions by giant non-financial
"mega-corporations". His tightly-argued
10,000-word presentation to a House of Commons standing committee has since won
widespread support across the country.
As chief executive of one of Canada's largest corporations, Ghert casts himself as an
insider who has the responsibility to "speak
out against the dangers (he) sees."
"You ought to listen to me a little more
closely," he counselled a skeptical MP at September's House of Commons hearing. "I
know how it works."
Ghert married in 1963 and has three children, two teen-age daughters and an 11-year-
old son. The youngest is a computer whiz
who is already called "the boss of the family"
by his grandfather on Ghert's side.
Twenty years ago that same grandfather
tried to dissuade young Bernie from leaving
UBC and going to Fairview. "Anyone can be a
businessman," Ghert Senior said, "but a professor, now that's something special."
True to form Ghert ignored the advice. He
recalls the decision with the qualified toughness now characteristic of the academic-
turned-executive UBC alumnus.
"I guess I just know what I want." ■
Chronicle/Summer 1986    9 Although there is still a long way to go in finding a
cure, UBC cancer research is being watched closely by
the international medical community.
A Good Day For Cancer
Julia Levy:
Exploring unique possibilities
in cancer research.
By John Lekich
ON A RECENT Friday afternoon,
when the bulk of UBC's population is engaged in the timeless
pursuit of staring out classroom
windows and mentally projecting toward the weekend, Dr. Julia Levy covers
the small space between a desktop lined with
exam papers and a nearby filing cabinet with
the frenzied grace of someone who makes a
habit of racing against the clock.
A professor of microbiology, Levy has her
personal philosophy down to an exact science.
"You have good days and bad days," she says
with a bemused grin. "Today is a bad day."
But then, Levy has had her share of good
days, too. With her UBC colleagues, Dr. Neil
Towers, a professor of botany, and Associate
Dean of Science Dr. David Dolphin, Levy is at
the forefront of research in a promising
method of cancer treatment known as pho-
The process — which involves the bonding
of antibodies, the body's natural defence
against foreign invaders, to light-sensitive
molecules called porphyrins — has recently
merited a $280,000 grant from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council to
finance further study.
As Levy explains, the technique is based on
a theoretical model that may have the potential to greatly enhance cancer therapy in the
future. "One of the great white hopes of cancer therapy is the possibility that specific
monoclonal antibodies will be able to deliver
poisons or killing agents and very specifically
bind to the tumor cell and then destroy it.
"So if you have an antibody that recognizes
a cancer cell ... it's not going to recognize
anything else. It's just going to go to the cancer cell ... If you could tie onto its tail a little
bomb that it will then deliver to the cancer cell,
you could activate the bomb and it blows up
the cancer cell. Then you have a very powerful
way of getting rid of small numbers of cancer
cells in the body."
Levy says that one of the problems with
treating cancer with chemotherapy and radiation is such treatments are only effective
within certain limitations. Although it is possible to eliminate massive tumors, it is very
difficult to get rid of 100 percent of the cancer
"It's very likely that when therapy's instituted, small numbers of cells may already
have spread to other parts of the body," adds
Levy, who explains that the total body irradiation necessary to combat both the major tumor
and the residual cells would prove fatal.
"With chemotherapy, the big problem is
that cancer cells are capable of modifying
themselves," Levy says, noting that the process is similar to the way in which a small
number of bacteria will develop a resistance to
"Cancer cells do the same thing with che-
motherapeutic agents. A small number of
them may mutate and develop a resistance. So
they're not going to be treatable with the same
drug. And that's why modern chemotherapy
involves the use of a combination of drugs,
because the possibility of that happening is
much less."
A major drawback with such traditional
forms of therapy is that they are non-specific,
destroying the cancer cells while minimizing
the destruction of healthy ones.
As Levy points out, current forms of radiation and chemotherapy take an immense
physical toll on the patient while the process
of "mopping up" residual cancer cells "has,
by in large, not been successful."
"One of the problems with most of the
therapeutic measures for cancer now is that
they are pretty heavy duty," she explains,
with a look of genuine concern. "I don't
believe there is ever going to be a single mode
of dealing with the disease. What we're work-

Professional accountants,
— shaping tomorrow. — From
RadSoc to
Big-time Radio
By Sandy Kleinfeld
IT STARTED out as noon-hour musical
diversion. A handful of students were
bored and looking for some way to spice
up their dreary lunchtimes in the cafeteria. One day they decided to play some
records on an old gramophone.
Before long, they cast gramophone aside
and developed their lunchtime amusement
into weekly radio broadcasts. They launched
"Varsity Time", a campus variety program that
aired over CJOR. This was the birth of student
radio at UBC.
That was 49 years ago. Since 1937, its inaugural year, the University Radio Society, or
RadSoc as it was known, has matured through
14   Chronicle/Summer 1986 Student radio at UBC has come a long way in 49
almost five decades into a full-fledged FM
radio station, now known as CITR.
Though the station has no definite plans yet
to celebrate the 50th anniversary, station manager Nancy Smith says they'll probably invite
all CITR and RadSoc alumni to come back and
do on-air shifts. "And of course there will be
cake," she adds.
The station is tucked away on the second
floor of the Student Union Building. Its state-
of-the-art 16-channel mixing console rivals
equipment found in any commercial station,
according to former station manager, Kandace
Kerr. Adjacent to the studio is a separate room
housing the records — all 10,000 of them.
About 160 students are active in the station,
but the total membership is close to 260.
Smith says CITR is planning to expand its
staff to accomodate the large number of people that are showing an interest in CITR. But
an increased membership may cause some
adjustment problems, she feels.
"As the organization grows, we need to
develop a more structured system of dealing
with volunteers and our commercial interests.
We combat chaos by promulgating information. We try to make certain that all volunteers
have a clear idea of what is expected of them.
When everyone does the minimum of what is
expected — all is well. When everyone does
more than required, we're laughing," Smith
"Students get involved here because they're
interested in music or news, or they just want
to meet people," says Kerr. "It's also a good
way to learn about broadcasting, and to see if
you want to do it for a living."
That may have been the motivation for at
least one RadSoc member of the early days. In
1940, the radio society's chief announcer was
Pierre Berton, BA'41.
RadSoc was just an infant then, and during
its first ten years operated out of a small room
in the agriculture building. It relied on several
local stations to air its programs.
By the late 1940s, the society had outgrown
its cramped quarters, and moved into a brand
new studio in the south basement of Brock
Hall. Dr. Gordon Shrum, DSc'61, officially
opened the studio, and was named honorary
president of the society. By this time, programs were becoming more polished, more
professional and more varied.
Recalls Jim Banham, BA'51, of the UBC
Community Relations Office and former Ubyssey staffer, "The end of the 1940s and beginning of the 1950s were watershed years for
RadSoc. There was a higher level of interest in
radio, and in what the UBC Radio Society was
doing. It was a quantum leap period for
And intimately tied to the society's progress, says Banham, were the Perrault brothers,
Ernie and Ray. Senator Ray Perrault, BA'47,
was president of RadSoc for a term in 1946.
Under him, students produced programs on
music, sports, and drama.
"Drama was the biggest thing in terms of
audience," he says. "We were a very active
Ray Perrault attended to administrative
duties as president, produced plays, and even
acted in them once in a while. "I played Winston Churchill a few times in my checkered
Ernie Perrault, BA'48, had been submitting
plays to the CBC before he even came to UBC.
In fact, many of the plays he wrote for the
CBC were re-worked and produced by RadSoc. He also produced several documentaries,
ranging in topic from fascism to mining technology. He was the society's president in
"It was fun. We were very popular; we had
a line-up to join on club day like you wouldn't
believe. We had to turn people away. RadSoc
had a status comparable to the Ubyssey."
In fact, RadSoc and the Ubyssey shared the
basement of Brock Hall and Ubyssey staffers
would occasionally write newscasts for RadSoc.
By the mid-1950s, RadSoc was broadcasting
to residences via a closed-circuit system. It
also had teamed up with the B.C. Association
of Broadcasters to operate a 22-week course in
commercial broadcasting. Members of RadSoc
learned script writing, voice control, and
microphone work.
In 1969, RadSoc became CYVR, and moved
out of Brock Hall into the newly-built Student
Union Building. The days of radio drama were
long gone.
In the mid-1970s, CYVR's music director
was Tom Harrison, BEd'75, who later became
music critic for The Province newspaper. He
says CYVR tried to be innovative with its
selection of music. But the station was fraught
with disorganization, Harrison recalls. Students wouldn't show up for their shifts,
records would disappear, and broadcasts into
the cafeteria were at the mercy of the staff
"The cafeteria staff had the power to control
the volume. So if they didn't like what we
were playing, they would just turn us off."
Still, the student radio station was a survivor. In 1975, CYVR had become CITR, and
went on air for the first time in Vancouver,
over cable frequencies. It wasn't until 1981
that it received its licence from the CRTC. On
April 1, 1982, it went to air on 102 FM and the
days of gramophones in the cafeteria were
long gone ... in July of 1984 CITR went
After four years on the FM network, CITR is
"still just an infant" according to station manager Nancy Smith. "We still have a lot of learning to do, but we think that we have a clear
direction and that we are on the road to success". ■

Fitness: More Than a Matter of Health
For Barbara Crompton
By Lynne Melcombe
Some of school's most valuable lessons
are learned after the bell, as successful
Vancouver fitness entrepreneur Barbara
Crompton, BEd'72, has learned. Crompton
was honored with the Maxwell A.
Cameron Award for top marks and proven
practical ability at UBC, but in retrospect
she says her most indispensible skills were
acquired by juggling extracurricular
activities with a challenging academic
"I was busy all the time," says
Crompton. "I had a 25 hour a week job, a
relationship, and membership in a sorority
that demanded commitment to a full roster
of volunteer and social activities and
maintenance of a high scholastic standard.
I learned a lot of self-discipline and
invaluable organizational skills."
Crompton's move from primary
education to fitness instruction was no
accident. "I wanted to teach people who
were really motivated to learn."
But classrooms could not fulfill her
expectations as well as she could theirs, so
she set out to capitalize on the expanding
potential of the fitness movement.
Initially, Crompton held a full time job,
taught six classes a week and took courses
in fitness instruction and business
management. In rapid succession, she
began offering more classes, hiring
additional instructors, quit her full time job
and finally, in the fall of 1982, opened the
Fitness Group's permanent location on the
west side of Vancouver. Today the
company offers 100 classes a week, aimed
at everyone from the chronically unfit to
the habitually athletic. It also sponsors
fund raising events, socials and workshops
on everything from massage techniques to
parenting skills.
Crompton characterizes her university
years as "positive and enriching.
University laid the foundation for me to
appreciate the talents of diverse types of
Her corporate philosophy, with its
emphasis on decision by consensus of "the
extremely competent individuals who
make up the Fitness Group", reflects this
Asked if she predicted her business
would ever be so big, she laughs loudly,
"Big! I thought it would be way bigger than
this by now!"
Far from complacent, Crompton has
grand plans for the future of her business:
fitness classes will one day be an integral
part of a healthy lifestyle complex which
will emphasize counselling in sports
medicine, stress management amd
nutrition. ■

Twice in a Lifetime
(Editor's note: When the Chronicle learned
through Dr. Bill Gibson, BA'33, that Great
Trekker Award winner Cecil Green, DSc'64,
ivitnessed both passages of Halley's Comet in
this century, we asked Dr. Green for his
impressions of the comet.)
I appreciate your interest in my having
experienced Halley's Comet twice in my
lifetime, even though its visitations to
planet Earth are 76 years apart. The first
time was when I was a ten year old boy in
Vancouver and the second time as I am
now approaching the ripe old age of 86.
The episode in 1910 was ever so much
more spectacular than in April 1986. In
fact, I easily recall watching the Comet in
1910 in the late evening — standing in the
garden of my grandparents' residence in
Fairview, near the corner of Heather and
17th Avenue West. It was not low on the
horizon as in Texas and California in 1986,
but practically directly overhead and with a
brilliant 'tail' of dramatic length. Thus in
1910 this exciting spectacle in the sky over
Vancouver was just as visible to the naked
eye as the moon — quite in contrast to
having to see it very low on the horizon
with the help of binoculars here in
Southern California and Texas in 1986.

Why wait?
The new Polaroid
35mm Autoprocess System
gives you slides in 5 minutes.
No experience needed.
No darkroom needed, either. And there's no mixing of messy chemicals.
Best of all, you can use any 35mm camera (or scientific instrument equipped with a standard 35mm back).
Plus, you have a choice of three
transparency films: Polachrome CS
for brilliant color. Polapan CT for
continuous-tone black and
white. Polagraph HC for high-
contrast black and white.
The small, lightweight
AutoProcessor can go
just about anywhere, too.
To save you hours -
maybe days - of wondering
and waiting.

22   Chronicle/Summer 1986 Woodland Indian Artist
Benjamin Chee Chee
Alumni Media is pleased to present 9 reproductions of works by the late Benjamin Chee Chee.
These are the only reproductions authorized by the artist's estate.
A mainly self-taught artist, Chee Chee was a prominent member of the second
generation of woodland Indian painters.
Unlike many of his contemporaries who employed direct and "primitive"
means, Chee Chee's work was influenced by modern abstraction. His style
reduced line and image in keeping with international modern art.
At the age of 32, at the height of his success, Chee Chee died tragically by suicide.
These reproductions are printed on high quality, textured stock and measure
