Chief Justice Sherwood Lett in appreciation of his term of
office as Chancellor of the University.  It was agreed that
this letter should be received, that a letter of acknowledgment and appreciation should be sent to Chief Justice Lett
for his service to the University, and that he should be
invited to attend meetings of Senate at any time in the
future when he wished to do so.
Minutes of the Previous Meeting
Dean Gage   )
Dean MacPhee)  That the minutes of the fourth regular
meeting of Senate for the Session
1956-57, having been circulated, be
taken as read and adopted.
Carried.
Statement of Appreciation
re Mr. C B. Wood
The Secretary read the following statement
prepared on instructions of Senate at its previous meeting:
Charles Bruce Wood. B.A.(Toronto). A.M.(Columbia)
After more than twenty-three years of service
to the University of British Columbia, Charles
Bruce Wood retired at his own request on June 30th,
1957. Friday, August 23rd, 1957     2437
A graduate of the University of Toronto,
Mr. Wood came to British Columbia in 1915. He
taught in secondary schools in the Okanagan Valley
and in the Cariboo. After a period of service in
the Canadian Army he was appointed Principal of
Cumberland High School in 1919.  In 1923 he resigned
from this position in order to pursue further studies
in Education at Columbia University and there
obtained the Master of Arts degree.
In 1924 he was appointed to the staff of the
Normal School in Victoria, a position which he
occupied until he joined the staff of the University
in 1934 as Lecturer in the Department of Education.
On July 1st, 1939, he was appointed Assistant
Registrar and two years later, on the retirement
of Mr. Stanley W. Mathews, he became Registrar of
the University and Secretary of this Senate.
With his training in Education and his background
of experience in the schools of British Columbia,
the Normal School and the University, Mr. Wood
brought to his duties a wealth of information and
wise judgment regarding academic matters.  His
unusual facility in languages, which he had demonstrated
even in his undergraduate years, enabled him to
decipher and appraise the many curious educational
documents that came from foreign lands.  He was ever
ready to take under his wing any student who was
strange to our campus or to Canadian ways. Although
he was firm regarding academic requirements, he was
invariably willing to give the benefit of the doubt
to students whose academic intentions were serious.
Mr. Wood was not one to promote his own interests
or to seek public acclaim.  He was wholly devoted
to the University and served it long and well.  In
spite of unusual pressures and long hours of work,
he retained an equanimity of outlook and an inner
composure which showed clearly his competence to
perform the many and exacting duties of his office.
Any University is indeed fortunate to command
the devoted services of modest men. Of such
Mr. Wood stands among the best.
It was agreed that this tribute should be spread
on the minutes of Senate, and a copy sent to Mr. Wood. Friday, August 23rd, 1957     2438
