THE DOMINION-PROVINCIAL YOUTH TRAINING
BURSARIES AND PROVINCIAL LOAN FUND
It is the desire of the Dominion and Provincial Governments
that no student of ability shall through lack of funds be denied
the opportunity to continue his or her education beyond the level
of the secondary school.
A sum of money has been set aside to aid University students
who can offer proof of scholastic ability and financial need. This
assistance is available to regular students in any year and any
faculty. Students will receive 60 per cent, of the total assistance
as a bursary and 40 per cent, as a loan. The loan is repayable
commencing one year after the applicant enters gainful employment, and will not bear interest until that time.
Application forms may be obtained from the Department of
Education, Technical Education Branch, Victoria, B. C, and
must be returned by August 15th, 1947. IJje ©ntasttp

HISTORICAL SKETCH
The creation of, a university in British Columbia was first
advocated by" Superintendent Jessop in 1877, but it was not until
1890 that the Provincial Legislature passed an act establishing
a body politic and corporate named "The University of British
Columbia." In 1891 this act was amended to require that a meeting of the Senate be held within one month after the election of
the Senators by Convocation. The Senators were elected, but a
quorum did not assemble on the date fixed by the Chancellor, Dr.
I. W. Powell, of Victoria. Thus the first attempt to establish a
university in British Columbia failed.
However, some of the work normally done in a university was
begun in 1894, when an act was passed which permitted the
affiliation of high schools in the Province with recognized Canadian
universities. In 1899 Vancouver High School was affiliated with
McGill University in order to provide First Year work in Arts,
and took the name of Vancouver College. First Year work in
Arts was offered by Victoria High School when it became Victoria
College by affiliation with McGill University in 1902. In the same
year Vancouver College undertook the Second Year in Arts.
In 1906 an act was passed incorporating the Royal Institution
for the Advancement of Learning of British Columbia, which, in
the same year, established at Vancouver the McGill University
College of British Columbia. The scope of the work undertaken
by this college was gradually increased until at the time it was
taken over by the University of British Columbia it was giving
three years in Arts and Science and two years in Applied Science.
When the University of British Columbia opened in the autumn
of 1915, both the McGill University College of Vancouver and
Victoria College, which since 1907 had been a part of it, ceased
to exist.
Definite steps to establish the University were taken by Dr.
H. B. Young, Minister of Education, in 1907, when he introduced
a "University Endowment Act." This act was followed in 1908
by an act establishing and incorporating the University of British
Columbia and repealing the old act of 1890-1. This act, with its
subsequent amendments, determines the present constitution of the
University.
As authorized by an act passed by the Provincial Legislature
in 1910, the Lieutenant-Governor in Council appointed a Site
Commission to decide upon a site for the proposed University. The
Commission held its first meeting on May 25th, 1910, in Victoria,
and after a thorough examination of the Province recommended
the vicinity of Vancouver.   In the autumn the Executive Council The University or British Columbia
decided to place the University at Point Grey—the site which the
Commission had named as its first choice. In 1911 the Legislature
passed an act authorizing the Lieutenant-Governor in Council to
grant this site to the University. The grant was increased in 1915,
so that it now consists of 548 acres at the extremity of Point Grey.
The waters of the Gulf of Georgia form more than half the
boundary of the University campus. A tract of some 3,000 acres
of Government land immediately adjoining the site, and lying
between it and the City of Vancouver, has been set aside by the
Government in order that University revenue may be provided by
its sale or lease'.
In February, 1912, the Hon. H. E. Young, Minister of Education, called for competitive plans which should include plans in
detail for four buildings to be erected immediately, and a block
plan showing all the proposed buildings on the campus. Messrs.
Sharp and Thompson, of Vancouver, B. C, were the successful
competitors, and were appointed University Architects.
The first Convocation, held on August 21st, 1912, chose Mr.
F. L. Carter-Cotton as first Chancellor of the University. When
he retired at the end of two terms in 1918, Dr. R. E. McKechnie
was elected Chancellor, and served continuously until his death,
May 24th, 1944. On September 18th of that year the Hon. Eric
W. Hamber was elected by acclamation to fill out Dr. McKechnie'»
unexpired term, and on March 7th, 1945, again by acclamation,
for the ensuing regular term.
In March, 1913, the Lieutenant-Governor in Council appointed
as first President of the University F. F. Wesbrook, M.A., M.D.,
C.M, LL.D. On his death, October 20th, 1918, L. S. Klinck, Dean
of the Faculty of Agriculture, was appointed by the Board of
Governors as Acting President, and on June lst, 1919, as President. When he retired, June 30th, 1944, he was succeeded by
Dr. Norman A. M. MacKenzie.
From its opening in 1915 till the Summer of 1925, the University
carried on its work in temporary quarters on part of the site of the
General Hospital in Fairview.
Construction work was commenced on the Science Building at
the permanent site in. Point Grey in 1914, but was interrupted
because of war conditions. Work on this building was resumed in
1923, and in the autumn of the same year the contract was let for
the Library. These two buildings, which are of stone and are
fireproof, conform closely to the original plans as prepared by the
architects in 1914. The initial units of these structures, as well
as nine other buildings which are of a less permanent character,
were completed in 1925, and at the beginning of Session 1925-26
the University commenced work in its new quarters. Historical Sketch 28
The inauguration of the new buildings was held on October 15th
and 16th, 1925, on which occasion honorary degrees were granted
by the University for the first time.
THE CONSTITUTION OF THE UNIVERSITY
The Constitution of.the University is governed by the British
Columbia University Act, B.C.R.S. 1936, c. 299, and Amending
Acts, which provide
That the University shall consist of a Chancellor, Convocation,
Board  of  Governors,   Senate,  Faculty   Council,   and  the
Faculties; that the Convocation shall be composed of the
Chancellor, the Senate, all persons who became members
of the  Convocation  prior  to  the  first  day  of  January,
1919, all persons holding academic appointments within the
University  and  whose  names  are  added  to  the  roll  of
Convocation by the Registrar of the University from time
to  time  upon  instructions  from  the  President,  and  all
persons who have become graduates of the University; that
the Chancellor shall be elected by the members of the
Convocation; that the Board of Governors shall consist of
eleven members—the Chancellor, who shall be the Chairman thereof, the President, three persons elepted by the
Senate from among its members, and six members appointed
by the Lieutenant-Governor in Council; that the Senate shall
consist of: (a) The Chancellor, and the President of the
University, who shall be chairman thereof; (b) the deans
and two professors of each of the  Faculties elected by
members of the Faculty; (c) three members to be appointed
by the Lieutenant-Governor in Council; (d) the principals
of the normal schools; (e) one member elected by the high
school principals and assistants who are actually engaged in
teaching; (f) one member to be elected by the governing
body of every affiliated college or school in this Province;
(g) fifteen members to be elected by Convocation from the
members thereof;  (h) one member elected by the British
Columbia Teachers' Federation.
It is further provided that the University shall be non-sectarian.
The University Act gives the University full powers to grant
such degrees in the several Faculties and different branches of
knowledge as the Senate may from time to time determine.    It
reserves for the University the sole right in this Province to confer
degrees, except in Theology, and it expressly enacts that "No other
university having corporate  powers capable  of being  exercised
within the Province shall be known by the same name, nor shall
any such university have power to grant degrees." LOCATION AND BUILDINGS
Location
The University is situated on the promontory which forms the
western extremity of the Point Grey Peninsula. On three sides it
is bounded by the Gulf of Georgia. The site comprises an area of
548 acres, of which approximately one-half is campus. In all
directions appear snow-capped mountains, strikingly rugged and
impressive.
Buildings
The buildings, planned to meet the requirements of fifteen
hundred students, are of two classes, permanent and semi-permanent. The former were designed by the University architects,
Messrs. Sharp and Thompson, the latter by architects of the
Department of Public Works of the Provincial Government. The
permanent buildings have been erected in the location originally
assigned for them; the others in the quadrangle designated as
"unassigned" in the original plan. By utilizing the "unassigned"
area for the semi-permanent buildings, all the locations intended
for future expansion have been left available.
The entire mechanical equipment of these buildings was
designed after a close study had been made not only of present
requirements, but of the ultimate development of the institution.
This consideration accounts for the fact that only a part of the
present equipment is permanent. After a careful survey of the
whole situation, a forced hot water system was found to present
advantages that made its adoption advisable. Direct radiation with
a system of warmed air supply and extraction for ventilation is
used to take care of the heat losses in the buildings. A separate
system of ventilation is installed for all sanitary conveniences, and
a specially constructed system for fume closets. The various
services throughout these buildings, such as hot and cold water,
distilled water, gas and steam for laboratory purposes,, compressed
air, etc, with the necessary apparatus, are all of a modern type.
An attempt has been made to reduce vibration and noise to a
minimum by installing all moving apparatus on 'floating slabs, with
a further insulation of cork.
Library
The University Library consists of more than 170,000 volumes
It includes representative works in all the courses offered by the
University, and a growing collection of books in other subjects.
It is notable for its high percentage of the transactions and proceedings of learned societies, and its long runs of scholarly periodicals—the materials essential to research. Location and Buildings 25
The Library possesses a College Art Teaching Set, presented
some years ago by the Carnegie Corporation of New York. This
consists of nearly 200 specially selected works covering the- fine
and applied arts, and of more than 2,000 reproductions, photographed or coloured, illustrating these. Recently it has been, possible to expand the art collection somewhat, and the Library has
sponsored an Art Loan Collection, from which students may borrow
prints and original paintings. The prints are the property of the
Library, but most of the paintings have been made available on
loan through the kind interest and generosity of local artists.
Another notable gift to the University, made by the Carnegie
Corporation of New York, is the College Music Set. The collection
of .recordings, originally numbering 950, has been greatly expanded, and now consists of over 2,000 records. The Music Set
also includes a fine electric gramophone, a collection of books on
musical theory and history, and a large number of scores. The
recordings are used regularly for student recitals and to illustrate
lectures on the appreciation of music. In addition, thousands of
records are loaned annually to individual students for home use.
The Library receives regularly over 900 serial publications.
The book collection is classified throughout on the Congressional
system.
While the Library is primarily for the staff and students of
the University, its resources are available to those of the general
public engaged in research or special study, and who make personal
application to the Librarian .for the privilege of its use. Such
persons are known as "extra-mural readers." By order of the
Board of Governors a fee of $1.00 per calendar year is charged
such readers. In addition, they pay necessary mailing costs, a
deposit being required from those unable to call personally for
books loaned.
The Library also administers the book collection of the University
Extension Department. This consists of about 1,600 volumes, and
is increasing as the Department's work develops.
The Extension Department's collection also includes more than
4,000 plays, for the service of dramatic groups and theatre students
throughout the Province.
The Extension Department's book and play collections are available to those who have registered with the Department.
The University is deeply indebted to all who have made gifts to
the Library. These have been both valuable and numerous. Their
number prevents detailed acknowledgment, but recognition should
be made of a number of sets of transactions, and complete or partial
sets of scientific periodicals, given by societies and friends of the 26 The University of British Columbia
University.   The most interesting and valuable of these gifts are
listed in the annual report of the Library to the Senate.
Museums
These consist of (1) the Burnet Collection of South Seas and
other ethnological specimens, housed on the main floor of the
Library; (2) the Geological and Geographical Museum, in Room
116, Applied Science Building; (3) the Zoological Museum, housed
in various rooms of the Applied Science Building.
The Burnet Collection was made by the late Frank Burnet, who
donated it and arranged it in its present home. It contains groups
of artifacts representative of the ethnology and archaeology of
various parts of the Pacific Basin. The largest unit, 1170 catalogued
items, is from the islands of the South Pacific, but Malaysia and
NJorth and South America are also strongly represented. Doors
are open from 4 to 6 hours five days a week throughout the year.
The Geological and Geographical Museum has been developed as
a medium for the visual instruction of students and visitors. It is
closely coordinated with the Department of Geology and Geography, but is used freely by students of sociology and history, as
well as by art students from city studios. The exhibits include the
Dr. H. M. Ami collection of pre-historical artifacts from Les Eyzies,
France; the Buttimer collection of Indian baskets; the Michell
Pierce collection of Eskimo clothing and utensils; the Peach and
Home geological model of the Assynt Mountains, Scotland; suites
of fossils, minerals, birds, and mammals, relief map-models, and
many other things of interest.
The Zoological Museum, containing material representative of
both the vertebrate and the invertebrate fields, is housed mainly in
the northern wing of the Applied Science Building. Owing to lack
of room in the museum, the collection is distributed in hallways and
rooms wherever space can be found. The collection of marine invertebrates of the northeastern Pacific Ocean is one of the largest
extant. A collection of 12 beautifully mounted heads of B. C.
game, donated by Messrs. G. L. and R. J. Pop, hangs on the walls
of Room 100, Applied Science Building, and a fine suite of African
game horns, donated by Mr. W. F. Byers, hangs in Room 120 of
the same building.
The collections are freely available to students and research
institutions.
Gymnasium
This building was completed in 1929. and presented to the University by the Alma Mater Society. The playing floor has an
area of 6,000 square feet, and is surrounded on all sides by tiers Location and Buildings 27
of seats which will accommodate 1,400 persons. In this building
are located the dressing rooms, locker rooms, showers, a training
and first-aid room, an equipment' room, an apparatus room, a
kitchen, and the offices of the Physical Education staff and graduate
manager of athletics. Equipment for all recreational sports activities is available to the student body free of charge upon presentation
of a Physical Education card.
Stadium and Playing Fields
In accordance with the original landscape plan prepared by
Mawson in 1913, the main playing field area, consisting of about
16 acres, is situated east of the East Mall and north of the
University Boulevard. Development work was started early in
January 1931, as an aid in alleviating the acute unemployment
situation, and was made possible by funds provided chiefly by
subscriptions from the Faculty, students, and friends of the University. Much of the labour was obtained through the courtesy
of the Relief Department of the City of Vancouver. Twenty
thousand cubic yards of soil and gravel were used to bring the
track and field to grade.
In addition to the main playing field of the stadium, there are
four other full-size fields and a number of smaller areas set aside
for outdoor games.
The first section of the grandstand for the stadium was erected in
the summer of 1937 on the west side of the main playing field. It
is a covered, reinforced concrete structure, 126 feet long, and
provides seating accommodation for 1,600 spectators. On either
side are two wooden bleacher sections of 500 seats each. In 1946
a wooden grandstand section providing 1,000 covered seats was
added. The plan provides for the ultimate continuance of the
main section around the field, and for this reason the present
bleachers are so constructed as to be movable. Underneath the
present main stand there are locker rooms, dressing rooms, showers,
ticket booths, drying rooms, and a room for special activities such
as boxing, handball, weight lifting, basketball, and fencing. This
special activities room in the stadium was completed and equipped
early in 1946. Funds for the construction of the grandstand were
provided through a $40,000 bond issue sponsored by the Alma
Mater Society. The Provincial Government has undertaken to
assume the annual charges for interest on the bonds.
There is also some additional temporary accommodation used
by the Department of Physical Education. An army hut, located
north of the Brock Memorial Building, was supplied in 1946 to
relieve the congestion in the gymnasium. This hut is used primarily 28 The University of British Columbia
for dance classes and recreational activities. An airforce hangar
brought to the campus in the fall of 1946 is expected to be ready
for use by September. This building, which will be called the
Field Hbuse, is 160 feet long and 110 feet wide. It will be used
for archery, tennis, golf, and various team practices.
The Brock Memorial Building
In connection with the celebration of the twenty-first anniversary of the opening of the University in 1936, it was decided
that a memorial be established by general appeal to students,
graduates, and friends of the University throughout Canada. A
committee representing all branches of the University decided
that the memorial should take the form of a student union building,
dedicated to the memory of the late Dean of Applied Science,
Reginald W. Brock, and Mrs. Brock, by whose tragic deaths as a
result of an aeroplane accident the University suffered a great loss.
The original fund for the construction of the building was
subscribed by relatives of Dean and Mrs. Brock, friends of the
University throughout Canada and the United States, alumni
and students of the University, and former colleagues of Dean
Brock. The balance of the amount required to complete construction was provided by the students and the Board of Governors
in cash and through a bond issue of the Alma Mater Society.
Furnishings for the building were provided from a fund raised
over a period of years by the Women's Union Building Committee
of the University.
The building is situated adjacent to the playing fields and
gymnasium. In it are located the offices of the Alma Mater Society,
the Alumni Association, and various clubs and student activities.
The building also contains common rooms, lunch and tea rooms,
and accommodation for social groups.
The Brock Memorial Building was dedicated in January, 1940.
Forest Products Laboratories
The Forest Products Laboratories of Canada, Vancouver Laboratories, which are maintained by the Forest Service of the Department of Mines and Resources, Canada, occupy five buildings, three
of which are provided and kept up through a cooperative agreement
between the University and the Dominion Government.
Plan of Campus
The plan at the back of the Calendar shows the buildings which
have been erected and indicates the nature of their construction. General Information 29
GENERAL INFORMATION

The University Student Health Service
The University Student Health Service is under the direction
of the Metropolitan Health Committee, which provides health
services for the Greater Vancouver Area including the University
Endowment Area.
The Health Service is at present housed in Hut No. 2A directly
south of the Armouries.
Requirements of The University Student Health Service
Medical Examinations
1. On admission to the University each new student must report
to the Health Service office for a medical examination. He is
advised to make his appointment at the time of registration.
2. Students registered in the Second Year (ex-service excepted)
must report for a re-check medical examination to determine their
capacity for physical exercise. They are advised to make their
appointment at the time of registration. 1
3. Students registering for the Physical Education degree course
must have a yearly medical examination completed within the
first two weeks of the session. They are advised to make their
appointment at the time of registration.
4. Students who are members of athletic teams must have a
yearly medical examination preceding active participation.
5. Students who have been away from the University for a year
or more are also required to report.
At the time of the examination the student is informed of any
physical defect, given advice, and urged to have the remediable
conditions corrected.
Evidence, satisfactory to the Medical Officer, of successful immunization against smallpox is required.
The Medical Officer is available at specified hours for consultation
with students on health problems.
Control of Communicable Diseases
Preventive tests and inoculations are given by the Health Service.
Much valuable time can be saved by prompt and immediate application of preventive measures in checking the spread of communicable disease. ,
1. Tuberculosis.
Tuberculosis is a major cause of death in people of University,
age.   Therefore a Chest X-ray examination is provided by the
University Student Health Service, in cooperation with the Provincial  Board  of  Health,   Tuberculosis Division,  and  the  B. C.
Tuberculosis Society through its Christmas Seal fund. General Information 81
The Chest X-ray is part of the medical examination and all
other students are urged to have a yearly X-ray while the Unit
is on the campus. There is no charge for this service.
This project is of a very great value; for when early tuberculosis
is diagnosed and treatment instituted before physical breakdown
occurs, the patient is saved from years of invalidism and perhaps
death, and student contacts are protected from infection.
2. Other Communicable Diseases.
The development of any communicable disease in a University
student or any person living in the same house must be reported by
the student to the University Student Health Service without delay. Students exposed to communicable disease may be permitted,
by special order of the Medical Health Officer, to attend the
University for a prescribed period, despite the exposure.
Such students shall report daily (or oftener, at the discretion
of the Medical Health Officer) to the University Student Health
Service for such prescribed period. Failure to report will result
in immediate exclusion from the University.
Reporting of Other Illnesses or Absence
Students developing any illness or suffering from any injury
while on the campus should apply for first aid to the University
Student Health Service.
Students developing any illness or suffering any injury while
at home, boarding house, fraternity house, etc., are required to
report this to the University Student Health Service.
Students absent on account of illness must notify the Health
Service Office by telephone and report before attending lectures.
If a doctor has been in attendance the student is to bring a medical
certificate from him. If the student is absent from an examination
he must present a medical certificate, which is to be in the Health
Service Office within one day after the termination of the examination period. A medical certificate must show the nature and
period of disability. Medical report forms may be obtained from
the Health Service Office. The dean of the faculty is notified of
absence from classes or examinations because of illness.
Summer Session
The University Student Health Service provides a health service
for students attending the Summer Sessions. Details of this service
may be found in the Announcement of the Summer Session.
Ex-service students attending the University for the first time
must report and fill in the University medical history card. 32 The University of British Columbia
Dean of Women
During the session.the Dean of Women may be consulted by
parents and students on matters pertaining to living conditions,
vocational guidance, and other .questions that directly affect the
social and intellectual life of the women students.
Board and Residence
Women
The Office of the Dean of Women undertakes the inspection
of all accommodation offered for women students. Any vacancies of
which information is obtained will be listed and made available
to students on demand. Since under present housing conditions
very few listings are received until just before the opening of
First Term, students planning to attend the University should also
attempt to secure accommodation either through their own efforts
or with the aid of friends. W
Men and women students are not permitted to lodge in the same
house, unless they are members of the same family or receive
special permission from the Senate. Women students under twenty-
five years of age are permitted to occupy suites in apartment
houses only when accompanied by some older person. Any residence accommodation arranged by women students for themselves
must also meet with the approval of the Dean of Women.
The cost of board and lodging is about $40 a month. Room and
breakfast can be secured for $20 to $25 a month. Other meals may
be obtained at several places on the campus.
For the Session 1947-48 accommodation will be reserved, for
returned women only, at Acadia Camp near the University. The
dining room at the Camp is under the supervision of a trained
dietitian. Accommodation is in single, double, or triple rooms,
and the rates charged are $40 a month. Request for reservations
should be made to the Dean of Women's office.
Men
Information concerning accommodation available for men may
be obtained by applying to the Department of Extension. Charges
for board and room vary from $40 to $45 a month, for room and
breakfast from $20 to $25 a month, and for room alone from $15
to $20 a month. Meals may be obtained in the Cafeteria and the
Brock Memorial Building; light refreshments are available at
different points on the campus.
Students wishing accommodation in either Acadia or the Fort
Camp should apply to the Department of Extension at the University.  During 1946-47 the charge for room and board was $120 General Information 88
for the First Term and $160 for the Second Term. About ?00
students can be accommodated. Preference will be given to returned service men.
General Conduct
The University authorities do not assume responsibilities which
