Honorary Degrees
Dean Angus, Chairman, in presenting the recommendations of the Committee on Honorary Degrees for the two-day
1955 annual Congregation ceremonies, pointed out that
honorary degrees are not normally given to recipients
in absentia and that frequently persons from other countries
who are offered degrees are unable to be present at the time
proposed.  For this reason the Committee had suggested
certain alternative names in the hope that one representative
of higher education in the United States and one in the
United Kingdom might receive an honorary degree at the
forthcoming annual Congregation.
The Committee therefore recommended:
That, from the United States, at the Spring Congregation,
1955, the degree of Doctor of Laws, honoris causa, be
conferred upon J. E. Wallace Sterling; that, if he should
be unable to attend, this degree be conferred upon Dr.
Harold Willis Dodds; and, if Dr. Dodds should be unable
to accept, this degree be offered to James Bryant Conant,
AND THAT, from the United Kingdom, at the Spring Congregation,
1955, the degree of Doctor of Laws, honoris causa, be
conferred upon Sir David Keir; that, if he should be unable Wednesday, February 9, 1955   2150
to attend, this degree be conferred upon Sir Hector
Hetherington; and, if Sir Hector should be unable to
accept, this degree be offered to Edgar Douglas Adrian.
It was further recommended:
That the degree of Doctor of Laws, honoris causa, be
conferred upon the Honourable Robert W. Mayhew, Mr.
Harold L. Campbell and upon Mrs. Ethel Wilson.
AND THAT the degree of Doctor of Science, honoris causa,
be conferred upon Dr. Joseph A. Pearce.

students each, and that four other first year courses had

the lecture sections were too large and that smaller sections
would be more efficient.  Dean Angus, Chairman, stated that
an expenditure of $200,000.00 per year would be needed for
additional staff to create what many of those consulted felt
to be the "ideal situation".  The Chairman asked whether the
opinions expressed had been appraised in the light of all the
University's needs. Dean Angus stated that such an appraisal
would be too great a task for the Committee to undertake and
would have to be carried on over a number of years. He
doubted whether such an enquiry would be profitable. Wednesday, February 9, 1955    2151
