meeting of Senate for the Session 1956-57,
having been circulated, be taken as read
and adopted.
Memorial to Dr. J. G. Brown
In accordance with instructions of Senate at the
previous meeting, the Committee on Memorial Minutes had
prepared a memorial statement to Dr. J. G. Brown, as follows:
Reverend J. G. Brown. M.A.. P.P.
1880 - 1956
Dr. J. G. Brown was born in Lakefield, Ontario
in 1880. He received his University and Theological
Education at Toronto. After a few years in pastoral
work in Ontario, he came to British Columbia where
he ministered in several congregations, including
his last charge of Ryerson Church in Kerrisdale,
From here he was appointed to the Principalship
of Ryerson Theological College and when, in 1927,
Ryerson College and Westminster Hall were merged,
he became the first Principal of Union College of
British Columbia on the University Campus.
Under his administration were erected the main
buildings of the College, viz., the West Wing in
1927 and the Tower Section in 1934.  His was the
difficult task of guiding the College successfully,
first through the period of the depression and
then through World War II.
After his retirement in 1948, he lived for
three years in Oxford, England, until his return
to British Columbia, when he assumed the pastorate
of The Church of our Lord in Victoria.
He remained on active duty to the end, having
conducted divine service twice on Sunday, October 14,
the day before his death.
The Union College Building will remain a visible
memorial to Dr. Brown. More enduring is the deep Wednesday, December 12th, 1956  2356
impression which he made on the minds and hearts
of his associates in all walks of life, and on the
many students whom he assisted in their perplexities.
These will remember him best for his unfailing
spirit of kindliness and Christian charity.
Dr. Brown's three children are graduates of
the University of British Columbia, viz.. Professor
James B. Brown, B.A. '40, D.Phil. (Oxon.), Ellen
Lillian, B.A. '42, and Professor Donald G. Brown,
B.A. '47, D.Phil. (Oxon.).
To his widow, and to the other members of his
family, the Senate extends its deepest sympathy.
Dr. Taylor)
Col. Logan)  That this statement be approved and
spread on the minutes of Senate, and
that copies be sent to the members of
the family of Dr. Brown.
