minutes of Senate recording the contribution to the University of the late Dr. S. J. Willis, the Hon. Denis Murphy,
Dr. P.A. Boving and Dr. E. h. Archibald, as follows:
The Senate regrets to record the death of four men
who have rendered memorable service to the University:
Ebenezer Henry Archibald, professor emeritus of
Chemistry, was a member of Faculty almost rrom its
beginning. His colleagues, his students, and the
members of this Senate are grateful for the memory of
his distinguished achievement in science, his quietly
effectual teaching, and his heroic conquest of
affliction.
Paul Axel Boving, the first professor, and later
professor emeritus, of Agronomy, brought to the University an experience in science that was rare in its
breadth and a rich store of humane culture. His
fellows will thankfully remember him for his wit and
his warmth of personality; and a generation of students
have been impressed by his persuasive skill in class- 1306

room and laboratory.
For well on to thirty years, the Honourable Denis
Murphy served on the governing boards of the University,
giving to that service a profound knowledge of our
community's life and the invaluable benefits of a
judicial mind. This institution will indeed be fortunate if it continues to enlist the support of such
a champion of academic dignity and academic freedom.
Samuel John Willis, late Deputy Minister and
Superintendent of Education, was a member of the University's first staff and for many years an ex-
officio member of this Senate. Few men have ever been
more self-effacing or more cheerfully effectual in
performing the duties of public office whether they
be high or humble.

facilities here, and the lack of supporting fellowships
and scholarships in these fields which meant that those
doing graduate work do so along with or in addition to
regular employment.
