J. he challenges that face the
j\lumni Association today are not
unique in our history. Members
who have been involved in the
Association in any way during
the past ten years know that
change, budget restraints and
organizational analysis have become part of our everyday business.
Our recent successes in
branch development, divisions
and marketing, along with our
initiation of faculty-based programs, are proof that, as an organization, we have responded
well to the challenges facing us.
But those challenges don't stop.
We have a mandate to serve our
members in a creative, cost-effective way, and that means we must
constantly monitor what we do and why we do it.
The change in the structure of transfer payments from the federal government will undoubtedly affect the amount of money the
province can use for post secondary education. Our expenditures
have been stable over the past few years, even though our membership base grows by nearly 6,000 every year. In order to improve our
services, we can't be content merely to sharpen our financial pencils.
We have to consider each of our programs for cost effectiveness, dedicated staff time and, most important, for its benefit to our members.
Early in 1996 the Association will undertake a performance review to assess our services, with your needs in mind. The review will
ensure that the programs we offer are the right ones, and will help us
define new priorities. UBC's administration will undergo profound
changes in the next few years, with a new president in 1997, and with
new deans in many faculties. It is up to us to define how we can serve
that new administration, and how we will serve our members into the
next century.
But we aren't waiting for the performance review to look at new
initiatives. We have struck a student cultivation committee to look
into ways of involving current students in our activities. Part of our
task is to help build life-long loyalty to UBC, and this process must
start early on.
We are also well along in the process of establishing a member
card. For an annual fee, you will have access to many ofthe services
you enjoyed as a student. We hope to introduce the card late this year
or early in 1996.
We have brought back a grand tradition, the Alumni Annual
Achievement Dinner. This year, we will honour our 1995 award winners on October 23 at the Vancouver Hotel with honorary degree recipient Garth Drabinsky as our featured speaker. This event is not to
be missed. Please see page 11 for information on tickets and times.
We can be proud ofthe accomplishments of our university. With
internationally recognized research, first class teaching and innovative programs in virtually every faculty, UBC has become one of the
top universities in North America. UBC's 1995 open house runs from
October 13 - 15, and will give you the chance to see, up close, the
great things going on here. I invite you to visit Cecil Green Park during open house and meet some of the people who work for you at the
Alumni Association. Remember, Tuum Est: It's still your university.

was very successful. Elaine and David Peterson hosted a June BBQ where
we were entertained by some great piano playing. In June Marjorie
Stevens represented Vancouver AOn at the international convention in
Scottsdale, Arizona, where they spent a great deal of time planning
AOITs centennial celebrations in 1997 in New York City! This coming
year Anne Mott is planning an active calendar of events, including
Founders' Day and our 65th anniversary. We are looking forward to a
successful return of an AOfl colony to UBC in the next year. Now is the
time to think  "legacy."
1 here has been a lot in the news
lately about financing post secondary education. The federal
government is cutting transfer
payments to the provinces and
some $300 million dollars earmarked for BC will have to be
made up some other way. The
provincial government says it cannot shoulder yet another Financial
burden imposed upon it by its federal counterpart. As a result, post
secondary institutions are seeking
more innovative ways to deal with
rising costs and higher demand.
Expenditures at UBC now total more than $700 million annually. About half that total is paid
through the businesses we run,
such as housing and food sendees, and through the research grants we
attract.
The other half, or $338 million, represents our operating expenses. Eighty percent ofthis comes from provincial grants and 16%
from tuition. Overall, the province funds less than half of our activities.
The question is, should the users of the post secondary system
shoulder more ofthe financial burden for their own education?
The conditions of our age dictate that all elements of society pay
their share, that all those who use or benefit from our institutions also
support them financially. So the question is not should tuitions increase, but by how much should they increase.
Tuition should only be raised if the public is convinced that we are
using our existing resources efficiently and effectively. Costs at UBC,
compared to 1981/82, are 30% less per student annually. This represents an outstanding improvement in productivity and fiscal management. By comparison, hospitals spend 40% more per patient day, and
the public school system spends 15% more per student than they did
in 1981/82, for a substantial loss in productivity.
The question of tuition has come into particular relief at UBC because, in late May, our Board approved a new tuition policy for the
1996/97 academic year. The policy includes these points:
• Tuition will be adjusted to ensure that total operating expenses are
contained to stay constant with inflation.
• 33% will be added to that increase and deposited to the student aid
fund to ensure that talented but needy students are given a full and
equal chance to attend.
• Full cost tuition will be established for some professional graduate
programs.
• Full-cost tuition will be charged for international undergraduate and
professional graduate students, starting with new students in 1996.
The University of British Columbia has no intention of raising tuition fees to anything like those charged at private universities. But society, the taxpayer and the university must establish the appropriate
balance between government funding on the one hand, and funding
that comes from tuition on the other.
The administrative focus of UBC is to maintain the highest academic standards. We will achieve that by keeping our financial house in
meticulous order, by investigating every conceivable avenue for efficiency and effective service, and by continuing to ensure that ability is
the sole criterion for students choosing to come to the university.

NURSING '65 held a most
successful reunion on May
5-7 at Whistler. The two
condominiums at Grey Hawk
easily accommodated the
fourteen nurses. Walking
around the golf course and
Lost Lake provided recreation. Sightseeing in the village and shopping was an
option for others. Class members prepared some gourmet
meals and local restaurants
were the venue for others. It
was a wonderful retreat for
reconnecting with friends and
sharing warm memories.
REHABILITATION MEDICINE '70 celebrated its 25th anniversary reunion over the May long
weekend. Twenty-three out ofthe
twenty-nine combined physiotherapy
and occupational therapy graduates
attended a brunch at the home of
Barbara Eden Stoddard in Richmond and a pot luck dinner at the
home of Elizabeth Colon
MacRitchie's parents in West Vancouver. Faculty who taught the class
joined in and added to the celebrations. Class members came from PEI,
Ontario, Alberta and BC.
GEOLOGICAL ENGINEERING '85 held their 10th year reunion over the
July 1st weekend at the Beaver Lake Resort in Kelowna. Those attending included classmates, spouses, family and friends, totalling 34 adults (of those sixteen were grads) and 12 children. Social activities featured a BBQ, fishing
derby (won by Paul Madsen), treasure hunt, awards ceremony, fireworks and
indulging in a keg of "reunion brew."
MEDICINE '55 experienced a very warm welcome from the Chateau Whistler
at their reunion on the weekend of June 16. Twenty class members and spouses
(including two widows) attended this year's reunion. The luncheon at the Chateau was a worthwhile experience. The balance ofthe weekend was spent relaxing, catching up and taking in some ofthe leisure activities that the resort has
to offer.
Reunions
Fifteen members of the classes of
APPLIED SCIENCE '31-'35 and
their guests gathered at Cecil Green
Park for their annual luncheon. Each
guest shared their memories of UBC
and their latest activities with the
group. Memories included mention
of Professor "Pop Valve" Smith
and tales of Charlotte Whitton.
Sixty-plus years after graduation, the
enthusiasm of these classmates for
their university years has not waned.
A good time was had by all.
MASTER OF SOCIAL WORK
'75 enjoyed a successful reunion on
the weekend of May 5-6. Forty people enjoyed the wine and cheese
party, held at the Reading Room at
the School of Social Work on the Friday evening. Saturday activities included a BBQ at Kits Neighbourhood House.The group intends to
celebrate their 25th anniversary reunion in Victoria in 2000.
NURSING '85 had a small gathering at Cecil Green Park on May 19th.
Some class members and their families met at Jericho Beach the following day for a beach BBQ.The fine
weather contributed to the success
of this event. %'
FORESTRY CLASS OF '50 was
the largest forestry class to ever to
graduate from UBC. In 1946 they
started with over 100 students,
mostly veterans all glad to be back in
Canada, and quickly became a
close-knit group. Approximately 70
students graduated, after having
spent their student years socializing
with each other and their professors
at Wreck Beach, Stanley fvrk and
the Commodore. They come together
every five years at Harrison Hot
Springs. This year there were 35 foresters and their spouses who came
from as far away as Toronto for their
45th reunion. Professors Butch
Griffiths and Tom Wright, as well as
four widows of former class members, were the honoured guests. Everyone enjoyed the gathering. A special thank you to Robin Caesar, who
has been the driving force behind all
ofthe reunions from the very first.

UBC Alumni Chronicle, Fall 1995 NEWS
Au Revoir,
Walter Koerner
I he University of British Columbia
is in mourning. One of its oldest
friends and benefactors passed away
on his 97th birthday. We are speaking, of course, of Walter Koerner.
Dr. Koerner came to Canada as a
young man with his two brothers,
Leon and Theodore, fleeing their
homeland in 1938 before the outbreak of WWII. He was born in 1898 in
what was then part of the Austro-Hungarian empire. He served in the
army during WWI and was decorated for bravery.
The Koerner family had been involved in forestry for two centuries, so
the brothers gravitated towards that industry here as well.They cultivated the hemlock, a tree which was regarded in this part of the world as
useless. Their company, Alaska Pine and Cellulose, thrived, and in 1954
they sold it to Rayonnier.Walter Koerner became the chair of Rayonnier
Canada (BC) and retired in 1972.
Koerner was also known as a philanthropist. He played an important
role in the collection and cultivation of West Coast Native art, and collected European ceramics from childhood. In the Fall 1991 Chronicle,
Robin Laurence wrote,"/n /972, he and his wife Marianne donated their
valuable collection of Northwest Coast native art to the Museum ofAnthropol-
ogy, a donation that was essential in securing federal government financing for
the construction ofthe Museum Hself.When, in 1988, he gave his extensive
European ceramics collection to the MOA (along with the money to display the
work), it was the consolidation of a long and significant association."
Koerner was chair of the UBC Board of Governors from 1968 to 1972,
and he was one of the most generous donors during the World of Opportunity Campaign. In particular, his support of the library has made possible the high-tech expansion currently underway.A new library building,
the Walter C. Koerner Library, is a key element in the library's expansion.
He well be missed.   Dale Fuller
The Alumni Association is pleased to announce that His Honour, The Honourable
Garde B. Gardom,
QC, the Lieutenant-
Governor of British
Columbia, has graciously accepted its
invitation to become
an Honorary Patron
ofthe Association.
The Board of Directors and the staff look
forward to a rewarding relationship. Mr.
Gardom graduated
from UBC in 1949
with two degrees, a
BA and an LLB.

UBC Alumni Chronicle, Fall 1995 UBC Metes Out
50 Years
of Law
George Curtis, UBC's
first dean of law, came
to the UBC campus
from Nova Scotia in August 1945
with the understanding that he
would have a year to set things
up. As it turned out, he had a
little less than a month. His acceptance of President Norman
Mackenzie's offer to build a law
school in western Canada coincided with the end of the war and
a subsequent flood of veterans to
Point Grey.
"No sooner had I sat down
than they were banging on my
door," said Curtis, 1995 recipient
of The Ramon John Hnatyshyn
Award for Law. "I tried to tell
them to head east because we
had nothing, but they said they'd
prefer to stick it out and take a
chance here."
Justice Lloyd MacKenzie,
former Attorney-General Robert
Bonner and BC Lt.-Gov. Garde
Gardom were among the first
class of 86 students Curtis lectured in Brock Hall North.
Seven years later, Prime Min
ister Louis St. Laurent stood at
the north end of campus and
presided over the official opening of Canada's first building
designed specifically for a faculty
of law.
As it celebrates its 50th anniversary, the faculty is the second
largest common law school in
Canada. It draws 180 students
annually from across the country
into its LLB program and about
50 students into its Master's and
PhD programs.
At the time of Curtis's appointment, time and resources
permitted little more than a
bare-bones selection of course
work and little in the way of faculty research. The faculty was
ahead of its time introducing
taxation and labour law in 1946.
By the late 1960s, first-year
enrolment doubled to 236, and
economic and societal pressures
called for a revamping ofthe 23-
subject curriculum. These
changes resulted in one ofthe
broadest legal curricula in the
country.

Grad Paul Winn (I),
Dean Lynn Smith and
founding dean George
Curtis celebrate half a
century of law at
UBC.
Dean of Law Lynn Smith
points to the national and international character of the student
body, and to the breadth and
depth of faculty research. Among
the 44 full-time faculty members,
research interests run across the
spectrum of legal categories. Research areas today include all
traditional areas of public and
private law as well as new, interdisciplinary fields such as First
Nations legal studies, environmental law, Asian legal studies
and artificial intelligence.
Smith believes that law faculties in the 1990s should provide a
healthy mix of interdisciplinary,
comparative and theoretical legal
study along with conventional
legal scholarship. This requires
not only a knowledge of legal
doctrine, but also an understanding ofthe social context in which
legal concepts and principles are
created, interpreted and applied.
The faculty will host a
number of events throughout the
year to mark the 50th anniversary, including a symposium on
the environment and the law; the
awarding of an honorary Doctor
of Laws on Chief Justice William
Esson ofthe Supreme Court of
BC; the awarding of honorary
LLB degrees to members of the
legal profession of BC who received their legal education before the faculty was established;
and the release of a book on the
history of legal education in BC
The faculty will also host an
informal lunch-hour reception
and archival display at the law
school on Oct. 14, followed by a
gala banquet in the evening. %'

Te first of the new Arts Faculty buildings on the UBC
campus was officially
opened on June 17, 1995. It is the
Fine Arts Gallery, named for its donors and constructed with the generous support of Mrs. Helen Belkin
and the Morris and Helen Belkin
Foundation. The architect, Peter
Cardew, has already received prizes
for its design. Half of the gallery
consists of exhibition space, while
the other half will accommodate the
gallery's support activities, including
storage of the university's art collection.
The new gallery will focus upon
contemporary art, particularly but
not exclusively of this region.The
opening exhibition features the
work of Paul Yuxweluptun, a Salish
artist. Other exhibitions will consist
of the work of various important
artists who appeal to the interests
of a wide audience.
The Belkin Gallery will be integral
to the mission of the university.
Through provocative exhibitions,
publications, visiting speakers, symposia and other activities, it will
challenge visitors and students to
think about our visual culture and
the vital role it plays in our collective lives.
Another complex of buildings
currently under construction is the
Chan Centre for the Performing
Arts, scheduled to open in the
spring of 1997. The 76,000 square
foot centre will be composed of
three auditorial the 1400 seat Chan
Shun Concert Hall, the BC Tel Theatre with a seating capacity of 300
and the Royal Bank Cinema. These
auditoria will serve the departments
of music, theatre and film on campus and will also provide a venue for
the performing arts in Vancouver.i-»

Everyone connected with the Faculty of Law was delighted and
proud to learn that George F. Curtis, founding dean of the
faculty, has been awarded the 1995 Ramon John Hnatyshyn
Award for Law by the Canadian Bar Association. The award, presented at the CBA's annual meeting in August, recognizes outstanding commitment to the law and to legal scholarship in Canada.
Curtis, who served as dean from 1945 until his retirement in 1971,
was cited for his achievements in "bringing Canadian university legal
education to maturity following the Second World War." One of the
founders of the Association of Canadian University Law Teachers
and the Committee of Law Deans of Canada, Dean Curtis also
served as director of the Foundation for Legal Research in Canada
for many years. At age 89, he remains an active and beloved member of the law faculty community.
The faculty itself celebrates the fiftieth anniversary of its founding
this year as well. The celebration will get into full swing with a constellation of special events during the UBC Homecoming/Open
House weekend. See the article on page 13 for details. For more
information about the events and class reunions also taking place
that weekend, please contact Elaine Borthwick at 604-822-6303

LIBRARY
When the UBC Library
started using computers
to provide online access
to periodical indexes and the library
catalogue, librarians and users immediately wanted more. It was
wonderful to find a list of articles
on a research topic using keyword
searching. But people still had to
track down the journals in the
stacks in order to read the articles.
What we really wanted was the full
text of the articles online.
Now, with reduced computer
storage costs and more published
material available in machine-readable format, libraries can provide
better networked access to schol
arly materials.
In the last year, the Science and
Engineering Division has provided
students and faculty in computer
science and electrical engineering
with online access to the IPO (IEEEI
/EE Publications Ondisc) database. IPO
contains the full text of articles
from the world's two major societies in electrical engineering — the
US-based Institute of Electrical and
Electronic Engineers (IEEE) and the
UK's Institution of Electrical Engineers; including over 100 journals,
225 annual conference proceedings
and all the technical standards produced by both societies.
Users can search these full-text
publications in numerous ways in
cluding author, title and keyword.
Since last October, users have been
able to access the IPO database in
the reading rooms in the Centre for
Integrated Computer Systems Research (CICSR) and the electrical
engineering buildings as well as the
Science and Engineering Division in
the Main Library.
User response to this new service has been enthusiastic.The advantages of providing online access
to full text are clear. As publishers
respond to the growing demand,
users can expect to see more and
more full-text electronic publications available through the Library. ;•*
MEDICINE	
Thanks to students, alumni, professional associations, the BC
government and the Vancouver
Hospital & Health Sciences Centre,
the $1,250,000 needed for the final
phase of the Medical Student and
Alumni Centre has been raised.
The Phase II extensions to the
Centre were recognized at a ceremony on May 11,1995 with a replica of the cairn on UBC's Main Mall.
Construction of the Phase II extensions is scheduled to be completed
in 1996.
The university has always attracted some of the finest researchers in the world. Dr.Victor Ling,
our new assistant dean of cancer
research and VP of research for the
BC Cancer Agency, continues this
tradition. He is renowned throughout the world for his discovery of
the existence and mechanisms of
drug resistance in chemotherapy.
He has received international
awards for cancer research.
Part of the faculty's mission is to
prepare physicians for the future.

COMMERCE
On June 29, Peter Lusztig, former
dean of the Faculty of Commerce and Business Administration, officially retired from UBC.
Lusztig earned a bachelor of commerce degree in 1954. He returned
to teach in 1957, and continued
"with a few interruptions" such as a
PhD at Stanford. Rather than ending
this spring, this connection is going
through a transition. He will have an
office near the David Lam Library,
and between contact with his colleagues, service as a board member
of several private corporations and
as a federal representative to the
British Columbia Treaty Commission, Lusztig will maintain the busy
schedule he's always had.
Reflecting on his tenure, both as
dean and professor of finance,
Lusztig takes the most satisfaction
from having developed a quality PhD
program for the Faculty of Commerce and internationalizing the faculty through exchange programs
with select institutions around the
world. Lusztig's list of other credits
includes: being a prime mover behind the original CIDA exchange
with China; the Programme for Ex
ecutive Development and the Portfolio Management Society, as well as
marshaling funds for the David Lam
Management Research Centre.
As a scholar, he'd like to be remembered for bringing the idea of
no-fault auto insurance into "more
or less general acceptance" in the
late 1960s, when he served on a
Royal Commission. He also enjoyed
coauthoring the first Canadian text-

sion, we are planning extensive
changes to curriculum.The new curriculum, to be introduced in 1996,
will maintain basic science teaching
and incorporate small group sessions, care-based learning, a good
grounding in medical informatics
and technology, as well as early
community clinical experience.
Thanks to support from three
charitable foundations — funding
has been secured to develop a
unique component of this curriculum, the AMIR (Addiction Medicine
and Intercollegial Responsibility)
program.
Funding has also been secured for
the Centre for Molecular Medicine
and Therapeutics. Following the
award of a $ 15 million operating
grant from Merck Frosst, and a $9
million commitment from the BC
government for design and construction, plans are being finalized
for the Centre. To be located at the
BC's Children's Hospital/Women's
Hospital campus, the Centre will
spearhead research into the genetic
causes of disease, and apply its findings to the Canadian health care
system. Scientists at the Centre will
interact with leading members of
academic communities nationally,
through the Canadian Genetic Diseases Network, as well as internationally. <v*
DENTISTRY	
The wealth of talent and enthusiasm for strengthening the
faculty program as we build
for the future has been an encouraging surprise for this new dean.
Alumni contribute in many ways
to the faculty. Many of them donate
their most precious resource: their
time.This is reflected by the many
part-time teachers whose efforts go
far to provide current and practical
book for undergraduates in finance
with Professor Bernie Schwab.
Managerial Finance in a Canadian Setting is now in its fifth printing. "It's
nice to know you've been exposed
to students that way," Lusztig, now
a dean emeritus, chuckled, "hundreds, or thousands of them over
the years. But that doesn't mean
they enjoyed it!" fa-
clinical experience to our students
when treating patients. In addition,
many others serve on faculty committees (particularly admissions,
curriculum and fundraising), while
others serve as liaison with the
Alumni Association's dentistry division.
Needless to say, many others
generously donate funds to ensure
the establishment of programs or
the purchase of equipment that
maintain the excellence of this faculty. With budget cutbacks impacting on the jobs of support and academic staff, these funds are now an
essential ingredient in our success
formula. No longer do we use funds
only for expenditure on immediate
needs. Funds are now directed to
"endowments" which will preserve
alumni donations while only the
earnings are used for the purposes
designated by the donor.This will
ensure continuous benefit for key
programs such as the clinic computer system, student financial assistance, clinical research, forensic dentistry and geriatric outreach dentistry. The opportunities to share
the rewards of your profession with
your alma mater await you.
The faculty is establishing a recognition award for the outstanding
clinical instructor.These individuals
have often been inadequately recognized in a formal sense and now this
can be done as part of the annual
awards luncheon following graduation.
Finally, an open invitation is extended to visit the faculty at Open
House from Friday, October 13 to
Sunday, October 16 to relive the
haunts of the good old days and to
see the efforts that are being made
to make you truly proud of being a
graduate of UBC's Faculty of Dentistry. ;■»■
SCIENCE	
It looks as though the academic
year '95-'96 will see a record
number of students in the Faculty of Science. For example, we anticipate an enrollment of 1300 new
students in first year, even though
the goal had been I 100. The higher
years have similar problems. It has

The decision follows several studies
of industry needs in BC and Canada
that identified a strong demand for
a new kind of specialized knowledge
worker, continuing education, extension and R&D for the value-
added wood processing industry.
Graduates will have an in-depth
understanding of value-added wood
manufacturing technology as well as
business skills in such key areas as
marketing, management and financial/skill analysis.
A new bachelor's degree in Wood
Products Processing will offer students two unique opportunities:
they will be able to complete 16
months of industry cooperative
training and will share in an educational process that specifically addresses working in groups, problem
solving and communications skills.
Not only is the content of the
proposed new programs unique, but

their development has been truly
interdisciplinary. The Faculty of Applied Science and the Faculty of Forestry have worked together with an
industry-based advisory board and
advisors from European educational
institutions to develop an undergraduate program proposal that focuses on producing graduates who
can continue to learn after leaving
UBC.
The centre facilities will also offer
a new professional masters's degree
for persons with engineering, science and business degrees wishing
to move to the wood products industry, and continuing education
programs for upgrading skills and
knowledge of existing employees
and managers.
The Centre for Advanced Wood
Products Processing will incorporate Canada-wide input from the
forest products industry, emphasizing a continuing partnership between industry, education and government. Funding is being provided
by all parties. ;*
The Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences is home to a new service for
seniors across the province.The BC SMILE (BC Seniors Medication
Information Line) program is a joint project of the Ministry of Health,
the BC Drug and Poison Information Centre, a number of pharmaceutical
manufacturers, the Science Council of British Columbia and the UBC Faculty
of Pharmaceutical Sciences.
The intent of the BC SMILE program is to improve the health of senior
citizens in the province by assisting them in using their medications in an effective and rational manner through telephone consultation with a pharmacist. The faculty will also use the program as a teaching resource to assist
students in improving their com
munication and research skills
and developing better awareness
of the needs of seniors.

nity, and each year a higher GPA has
been necessary for admission. This
year has been complicated by the
new admission system whereby entry is decided by a calculation which
now includes only four grade 12
marks from high school, whereas
previously five grade I I, as well as
the four grade 12 marks, were used.
The minimum level was set at 82%
this year and will clearly have to be
raised next year.This is a very high
standard and thus many excellent
students cannot be accepted because of the lack of university places
in our province.
The Department of Statistics has
moved into the third floor of the
Old Computer Science Building.
This follows the move two years
ago of the Computer Science Department to the new CICSR/CS
Building at the southern end of
campus. The new location for Statistics was refurbished and the professors are delighted to move out of
their old cramped quarters in
Ponderosa C. In addition, the old
UCS (University Computing Services) Annexe, a beige portable between the Mathematics Annexe and
the Geography Building, has been
taken over by Mathematics and Statistics for undergraduate computing
laboratories. Thus the computing
facilities are improving all over campus. >•
CONTINUING EDUCATION
On June I, 1995, Dr.Tony Bates
joined UBC Continuing Studies as director of Distance
Education and Technology. He will
be responsible for the distance education operations of UBC Access/
Guided Independent Study and will
represent the university on provincial committees and various associations and agencies concerned with
distance education.
Dr. Bates assumed overall responsibility for information technology, institutional research and strategic planning at the Open Learning
Agency, in Burnaby when he came
to Canada in 1990 from England.
There he was one of the founding
staff members and professor of educational media research, at the British Open University.
He has worked as a consultant in
over 20 countries for a large
number of organizations including
UNESCO, the World Bank, the European Commission, the Government of Norway, the Canadian International Development Agency
and External Affairs Canada. He has
also given keynote presentations
and workshops at more than 36 universities.
In June 1995, Dr. Bates was
awarded the honorary degree of
Doctor Honoris Causa in the Sciences of Education by the
Universidade Aberta (the Open University of Portugal) for his scientific
contribution to the field of distance
education.
Technology-based open learning
is one of the fastest growing areas
of education and training, and is
critical for continuing studies. It is
imperative that universities provide
education and training which fits the
life style of adults. Increasingly,
learners and employers will expect
training to be available in the home
or in the workplace. In response to
these emerging needs, UBC intends
to become a world leader in the
provision of flexible multimedia educational services. Dr. Bates is expected to play a major role in helping UBC to achieve this goal. £*■

It's a sunny summer day and the heavy
wooden door is open to John Gray's
older Kerrisdale home. He doesn't
hear a visitor knocking because he's in
the kitchen doing what you'd never
imagine a successful Canadian playwright
would be doing.
He's vacuuming.
The author oi Billy Bishop Goes to War,
Rock and Roll and 18 Wheels is wearing summer shorts and an untucked t-shirt that says
University of British Columbia across the
front. It's a complete coincidence, he says.
So we sit down in the kitchen — sort of a
sunroom with windows everywhere and lots of
summertime heat beating through — and we
talk about the theatre program at UBC in the
early 1970s, the arts in Canada, South American juntas and the fool in King Lear.
Gray was a theatre student at UBC for
three years from 1969 to 1972, a period that
produced many of today's more famous theatre names in Vancouver. The late Larry Lilio,
a Dora Mavor Moore award-winning director
and artistic director at The Vancouver Playhouse, actor Eric Peterson and Gray met
there and went on to form Tamahmous Theatre in 1972.
"We discovered ways of doing theatre
with no money," Gray quips.
Making the transition from theoretical
to practical and actually doing live theatre
was what Gray says he remembers most about
his time at UBC, especially since there wasn't
a lot of Canadian theatre happening back
then. Even at UBC, theatre students were
learning English accents, but at least they
were getting to do plays, Gray says.
"Eighty per cent of it is just doing the
shows. It's not like becoming a lawyer where
you memorize all this stuff and you go into
the world with a bag of tricks."
Today, theatre students still perform in
five full-length plays presented to the public
from September until March.
After the theatre program, you go into
the world with a certain amount of experience
and an instinct, he says.
"There was nothing like Klaus
Strassman's beginning directing class. It was
great."
Besides the productions at UBC,
Strassman had directed abroad and in the city.
In that class, Gray says, he learned the art
of moving people around properly, perhaps
the most important skill he picked up.
"Other than that, other than just really
good simple principles like that, techniques,
it's all in your bones. You feel it."
^^k        few years earlier, during the
^^^^^        first half ofthe 1960s, the Arts
/^^^^k     Club Theatre's artistic director
^__^^^^^  Bill Millerd was haunting the
/ «HHk halls of the theatre depart
ment inside the Fredric Wood Theatre, enthralled with the place for some ofthe same
reasons.
Sitting in his cluttered office on Granville
Island, Millerd explains he was actually a political science student taking a few electives in
theatre when he found his passion. Like Gray,
he too most remembers the actual plays, especially one particular production of Hamlet, in
which he played the drums.
"I remember sitting in the fly gallery
playing drums and I remember feeling
thrilled to be part of something that I thought
was important," Millerd says.
Because there wasn't a lot of theatre in
Vancouver at the time, the productions at the
Fredric Wood Theatre were equivalent to what
is today put on at the Arts Club, he says.
The building itself wasn't bad either. The
Freddie Wood, as it is affectionately known,
opened in 1963, the same year as the Vancouver Playhouse. It had a stage turntable that
was the envy of many professional theatres.
People still praise the building.
Canadian critic Brian Arnott, writing in
Contemporary Canadian Theatre, says most
educational institutions have built poor theatre buildings. "One ofthe few exceptions is
the Fredric Wood...[which] closely resembles a
professional resident theatre facility in every
respect save its modest 420 seats."

Besides memorable times inside the
Freddie Wood, Millerd says UBC showed him
the egos, the helpful people and all the rest of
the types you meet in the real world of the
theatre. In many ways, it prepared him for
what he's doing today, he says.
ancouver actress and playwright Nicola Cavendish was
the opposite to Millerd's theatre-dabbling political science
student. She was a theatre
student from 1970 to 1975, who took electives
outside theatre, not all of them with great
success.
Take, for example, the course on geophysics.
"I wrote an excellent paper on the Big
Bang Theory, but unfortunately the professor
had no sense of humor," she says recently
while sitting in a Vancouver Wendy's. (It was a
handy location to meet.)
"I finally got a credit in nutrition and
here I am in Wendy's," she says as she
munches on a french fry.
The food theme continues as we talk
about the theatre department at UBC.
"It was rich. It was nutritious and nurturing, like a great big can of chicken soup," she
says.
Like Millerd and Gray, Cavendish was at
UBC when the theatre department was run by
Dr. John Brockington.
"He was a really good teacher and he was
what I believe the theatre should be about:
flamboyant; challenging; colorful. He was
larger than life, he was that embodiment of
character. There was a touch of cynicism
about him. He was sarcastic, a good sarcastic,"
Cavendish says. "He taught me the stuff between the lines."
Brockington has since retired. He served
as department head for 22 years.
According to Gray, there was another
side to the long-serving head ofthe theatre
department. On the one hand, Brockington
could instill in students a passion for the
theatre. On the other hand, he didn't mince
words.
"He could put the fear of God in you and
tell you you had no talent, that you didn't
deserve it, that you'd never do anything in
this business. It's a horrible thing to be told,"
Gray says.
No, Brockington never said that to him,
but he'd said it to others and been wrong.
Millerd said it was true, Brockington
could indeed do that.
"I think he thought a form of put-down
was a way to make sure someone was
really interested in a life in the theatre."
Millerd says he believes »♦
Cheryl McNamara BFA '95
Cheryl McNamara intended to become a journalist. She loved acting but was afraid it would be
unstable financially and career-wise. While studying
at SFU for a BA in communications, she never
even went to theatre performances. One summer
she decided to take an acting course and discovered she wanted to be on stage. It was either journalism school or theatre school for Cheryl, and
her heart said theatre school.
After her BFA from UBC, she has no regrets
about her decision to study acting. She has had
strong teachers and has learned about theatre
history, which is stressed at UBC. Cheryl considers this historical knowledge a vital tool for an
actor.
She is concerned, however, about deficiencies
within the theatre program. "It would be great to
have more concentration on mask or dance. A
greater mix of things to do. But given that this is
an academic situation where academic studies are
stressed—which is also important—there's nothing
much you can do about that."
Cheryl also points out that the physical space
available for theatre is insufficient. Students still use
one of the World War II huts for a rehearsal hall.
She hopes this problem will be addressed when
the Chan Centre for the Performing Arts opens.
As well, Cheryl would like improved advertising to attract more non-theatre students to plays.
The last show she worked on at UBC was
Horatio's Notebook, a Hamlet-meets-generation-
X play, created by directing student Tom Scholte. It
was meant to appeal to young people, who tend to
be absent from UBC theatre audiences. "Theatre
has its own magic, its own power," Cheryl says.
"Kids and people in their twenties should be able
to access that"
The summer production of Horatio's Notebook illustrated one of the best aspects of UBC
theatre: the commitment of the people involved.
Because summer theatre faced funding cutbacks,
people donated their time just to get the show on
the stage. Cheryl is astounded by the amount of
work these volunteers did simply because they
love theatre. »*

Her program at UBC has excited her about
different styles of acting . Cheryl feels her mind is
now open to a range of choices for her future.
Many things interest her, from movement and
mask to clowning and children's theatre. She may
even return to school for an MFA in directing.
Sometimes she has doubts about her acting
career. "I waver sometimes. I mean, what the hell
am I doing this for? You get up, you get ready for a
show. Sometimes you don't feel like doing it.You're
just exhausted. But then there's some nights
where it's just all worthwhile."
Nelson Gray (MFA directing program)
Nelson Gray is returning to university after
years working in the performing arts. He received
a BA in English from SFU, specializing in poetry. In
the mid-1980s, he and a choreographer founded
JumpStart Performance Society.They created a
new kind of performing art that combined dance,
theatre and opera. The company toured North
America and Europe to enthusiastic reviews.
Because Nelson worked with little formal
training, particularly in theatre, he decided to
study directing. "It's a quantum leap forward for
me. I came in contact with a lot of theatre traditions working with different people at UBC." Most
important, he learned the particular vocabulary of
actors. "If I speak their language then I can engage
them in the wonderful process of taking a script or
concept, enlivening it, and making it come to life
on the stage."
Nelson finds that one of the better aspects of
UBC's program is the chance to work with designers, wardrobe people, set builders and lighting
technicians. Because these people are inspired,
imaginative and excited about working, Nelson
thinks they should be able to initiate shows. A designer with a visual and logistic concept would
work with a director to clarify the action and
work with the actors.
As well, Nelson feels more people would
enjoy the theatre if they tried it. "People are a bit
lazy, but once they get the experience, they love it
and they want it. It's very basic to come together
as an audience. We're always told to do things for
ourselves. There aren't enough opportunities for
people to get together, but that's the only time it
gets exciting."
Nelson hopes the new theatre under construction at the Chan Centre for the Performing
Arts will motivate people to attend shows.
Nelson likes UBC: faculty in the theatre department welcome his ideas, are passionate about
theatre and love teaching.They have been supportive of his current projects: the Canada Council
gave him a commission to write a libretto for a
new Canadian opera, and he is the artistic director
of the Savage Media Society, which has done live
performance, radio drama and video for public
television.
Savage Media's projects emphasize BC artists
and focus on local subjects. Nelson wants to explore issues of BC's cultural identity. "I feel committed to this place. I want to help produce and
direct works that are stories about this particular
region. Because there's not enough stories told
about here, about right here."
PearlBellesenBFA*8l
The roots of Pearl Bellesen's theatre career
reach back to when she was five years old. At that
age, Pearl was a set designer, costume maker, actor and director: she recruited her neighbours to
put on plays in the front yard.
As an adult, Pearl went to Langara College's
Studio 58 acting program. "I always thought that I
was born an actress, and that I would just experiment with design, and not really stop acting. It was
just a way of branching out and remaining in thea-
tre.And then I realized that designing was something I could do really well. So I stopped the acting
side and concentrated on design."
Since getting her BFA in theatre design from
UBC, Pearl has worked as a professional set and
costume designer. A few years ago, the Canada
Council gave her a grant so she could be an assistant to opera set designers in London, England.
That experience transformed the way she creates
theatre sets.
Audiences have seen Pearl's designs at almost
every theatre house in Vancouver, including the
Arts Club Theatre and the Vancouver Playhouse.
She has worked throughout western Canada, and
has noticed that across the country there are many
UBC alumni involved in theatre. "It's nice to know
when you go somewhere that there are other
graduates all over the place from the same program."
Designers tend to be free to decide on the
visual concept of a show, yet their designs must
serve the needs of the play, the director, the actors
and the performance space. It is important, therefore, that designers are good at collaborating with
others who are involved in a production. Pearl says
one of the most important things she learned at
UBC is how to work with people.
Pearl does think, however, that UBC provides
inadequate work spaces: the graduate design area
and the costume shop are in a cramped basement
with little light and air.As for performance spaces,
she says new ones would be welcome, but students
are lucky to have the high-quality spaces currently
available. According to Pearl, the Dorothy Somerset
Theatre is a black box in which one can do anything, and the Frederic Wood Theatre is one of the
nicest theatres in the city - large yet intimate.
Pearl liked UBC so much that she returned
when she decided to get an MFA to improve her
career opportunities. She would like to teach design, perhaps at a university. As well, she would like
to be taken seriously by those artistic directors
who doubt the capabilities of people with only a
bachelor degree.
Unlike some other institutions, UBC provides
its undergraduate designers with everything they
need to know about theatre. Pearl believes that the
design instructors have a great deal to offer students. "[UBC] is a really good learning environment
If the students want to learn ... and they're willing
to work, then I think they can learn just about anything they want"
Tom Scholte BFA '92
As long as he can remember,Tom Scholte has
wanted to be an actor. Having already received a
BFA in acting from UBC, he is now working on an
MFA in directing. Because Tom has varied academic
interests, he knew acting school would be too limiting for him. He wanted to have a university experience but specialize in acting.
At UBC Tom learned more than the trade of
acting: theatre history and dramatic theory were an
important part of his curriculum at UBC. Due to
his education in the theoretical background of theatre, Tom wants to create work instead of merely
getting hired to do work. "I don't think I'm ever
going to want to give up the performance side [of
theatre]. But I've become more and more selective
about when and where I want to be a performer.
And I think that having some creative control is
part of the circumstances I want to be acting under."
Currently Tom is putting to practice what he
learned at UBC. He presently runs his own    »•

Vancouver actor Nicola Cavendish
Brockington got nervous about teenagers who
came into his department and decided at such
a young age that theatre was their life.
Dorothy Somerset was different. She encouraged people.
Somerset began teaching at UBC in the
mid-1930s when she ran the summer school
of theatre and gave extension courses around
B.C. spreading her enthusiasm for drama to
amateur acting groups around the province.
In 1946, she offered UBC's first theatre
credit courses in the department of English.
By 1958, she'd become the head ofthe newly
formed theatre department. She retired in
1965 and died in 1991 at the age of 91.
One time, Millerd says he went to talk to
Somerset about his possibilities as an actor.
"She said she didn't want to discourage
anyone who really wanted to be an actor, but
she said she thought I had limited potential
because I had a funny voice," Millerd recalls.
So he took a directing course instead and
decided this theatre thing was certainly for
him. After graduation, he took a year off to
travel, came home and went to the National
Theatre School in Montreal.
et and costume designer Kate
King went through the theatre
design component ofthe department much later on, from 1987 to
1989 when she got her master's
degree at UBC.
"It was pretty intense. We practically
lived out there," King says, sitting on a couch
in her east Vancouver home.
They attended classes in the day, studied
at night and then they'd stay up until 4 p.m.
painting sets.
"That's when we'd have some of our best
talks about design with Bob (department
head and set designer Robert Gardiner).
"I think it's that gnarly artist thing.
You're so into that and you forget about getting sleep," she says.
It's probably not something she'd do today, she says with a laugh, but she learned a
lot about the business that way.
King has been working steadily since she
graduated, first with the National Theatre in
London and for the past four years in B.C.,
primarily Vancouver. She credits UBC for
teaching her how to make herself employable.
"Bob always encouraged us to have two
jobs because you can't always make your living
with your art."
So after she graduated, she went to England and got a job as a scenic artist at the National Theatre, where she wasn't designing
sets, but she was working with top designers
and absorbing great ideas.
All the hard work at UBC helped, King
says.
"It sets you up so well for what theatre is
really like."
Rosetta Cannata is a Vancouver writer.
Set and costume designer Kate King
theatre company, Theatreshop, and has joined
Tamahnous Theatre.This well-established Vancouver theatre company has restructured to form a
core group of four actors who plan to work together consistently over several years, creating
new pieces of work and performing them.
Tom hopes Tamahnous will provide Vancouver
with genres of alternative theatre that are rare in
this city.The concept for his most recent produc
tion at UBC was influenced by avant-garde shows
he saw outside ofVancouver.Tom would like UBC
to teach about the theoretical backgrounds behind
these new forms of theatre. He realizes, however,
that instruction hours are limited, and he is
pleased that UBC uses the available time for classical actor training, which teaches students the fundamentals of acting.
Though Tom is pleased with the excellent
teaching in the theatre department he believes
that instructors are confused whether the BFA
training gives students the skills necessary to be
professional actors, or whether it simply makes
them better actors than when they started the
program. Ultimately, this issue is a philosophical
query of Tom's, and has not hampered his education.
Differing views within the department can in
fact help students.Tom points out Instructors
often have different perspectives on acting tech-
nique.This allows students to take what they want
from each teacher to form a personal philosophy
of acting.Tom feels fortunate he studied under a
number of people with divergent viewpoints, and
he is concerned cutbacks prevent hiring even
more, much-needed instructors.
On the whole Tom thinks highly ofthe education UBC has given him. "The amount I've learned
in the four years of my undergraduate degree and
these two years of my graduate degree is just immense. So there's always room for improvement
but I think I owe a tremendous amount to the
teachers here. I think they've done a fantastic job.
And continue to do so." ^
