Colonel Logan )
Dr. Sage     )  That the following memorial minute
for Professor Emeritus Lemuel
Fergus Robertson be spread on the

to each member of his family.
Carried.
"   The Senate of the University of British
Columbia records the deep sorrow and sense of
loss of its members in the death on May 14th,
1956, of Professor Emeritus Lemuel Robertson,
for many years Head of the Department of Classics.
"    Born in Prince Edward Island, he attended
Prince of Wales College, Charlottetown, and
later pursued his studies in McGill University,
where, under the direction of his teacher and
friend, Principal Sir William Peterson, he
graduated as Gold Medallist in Classics in 1899.
Following graduation, he engaged in High School
Teaching in British Columbia.  In 1901 he was
appointed to the staff of old Vancouver College
which at that time, in addition to its four
years of High School work, offered First Year
Arts, in affiliation with McGill,  In 1906 when,
largely owing to Professor Robertson's initiative,
McGill University College of British Columbia
was established, he became responsible for all
classical teaching in the College,  Then, when
McGill University College merged in the
University of British Columbia in 1915, Professor
Robertson became the first Head of the Classics
Department.  His high attainment as a teacher is
evidenced by the large number of his students
who have achieved distinction in classical
scholarship and in professional life generally.
"   Although his brilliant gifts found their
fullest expression in the class-room and in the
life of the University, his interests and
knowledge extended into every area of human
activity.  Because of his practical wisdom,
his wide acquaintance with persons and his
long and varied educational experience in
British Columbia, his influence made itself
felt throughout the University and the
provincial school system.  He was elected a Friday, August 24th, 1956  2331
Faculty representative of the first University
of British Columbia Senate and was frequently
re-elected to the same body.  He served interim
periods of duty as Registrar and Dean of Arts,
and was several times Director of the Summer
Session. As a member of the Provincial Board
of Examiners he had much to do with establishing
and maintaining good liaison between the University
and the Department of Education in Victoria.
"   A liberal in thought and in politics,
well-read in Canadian and British political
history, with an unusually retentive memory,
he took a keen interest in current events
and in his quiet, unobtrusive way, exercised
no small influence upon them.  While his
University colleagues recognised in him a
prince among scholars, his powers of friendship were unlimited, a fact attested not only
by his students and University associates, but
by men and women in all walks of life.
"   His contribution to the University of
British Columbia is well summed up in the
citation for the Honorary Degree of Doctor
of Laws conferred by the University in 1942,
the year after his retirement: 'Long before
this province had a University, a University
life began to operate in whatever class-room
he entered.  It was his idea and his formula
that shaped the mould from which this body of
ours emerged without jar of transition.  And
ever since the emergence, his teaching and
wealth of experience have continued to help
the University grow.'
"   At the end of a full life of 83 years,
Professor Robertson might have truly said,
in the words of the poet Horace, whom he loved
to quote:  'Exegi monumentum aere perennius' -
I have completed a memorial more enduring
than bronze."
