McTaggart-Cowan as Member
of Senate Elected by
Convocation
Dr. I. McTaggart-Cowan, a member of Senate elected
by Convocation, had toeen appointed Dean of the Faculty of

Dean Eagles) That the Chairman of Senate toe
so authorized.
Carried. Tuesday, September 8, 1964       3406
Master*s Degree in Theatre
The Senate Executive Committee had reviewed in
detail the proposed programme of graduate studies in
Theatre leading to the degree of Master of Arts, and the
following proposed new courses. The new courses or areas
of study were to be introduced in stages between 1965-66 and
1967-68, and not all courses would be offered in any one
year.
Theatre 510(3) - Seminar in Comparative Dramatic
Literature
Theatre 515(3) - Seminar: Studies in Theatrical Style
Theatre 525(3) - Seminar in the Study of a Major Dramatist
Theatre 507(3) - Seminar in Advanced Playwriting
Theatre 505(3) - Advanced Scene Design
Theatre 506(3) - History and Design of Theatrical Costume
Theatre 549(3-6) Master*s Thesis - (Research; Production -
Directing or Design; or Playwriting)
The Senate Executive Committee had recommended
that Senate approve the offering of a Master*s degree in
Theatre, and approve the areas of study specified for the
degree, on the understanding that the Dean of Arts would
confer with the representatives of Theatre and other Departments concerned to ensure that there would be no unnecessary
duplication, and to ensure co-operation in the offering of
the courses or the fields of study involved.
Dean Naegele stated that the programme had been
approved toy the Faculty of Arts and Science, and the Faculty
of Graduate Studies, in 1962-63.  It had been presented to
Senate in May, 1963, but consideration had been deferred
pending the lifting of the moratorium on introduction of
new courses and programmes.  If the programme were approved, Tuesday, Septemtoer 8, 1964       3407
the University of British Columtoia would be the only
institution in Canada offering graduate studies in Theatre.
Some aspects of the programme would inevitably
resemble offerings in Fine Arts and Creative Writing.
However, the only issue which Dean Naegele felt required
further consideration was the proposed course Theatre 507
(Seminar in Advanced Playwriting), since Senate at its last
meeting had approved a graduate course in playwriting under
Creative Writing (to include writing for radio, theatre,
television and cinema).
Dean Naegele)
Dean Gage  ) That Senate approve the offering
of a Master's degree in Theatre
and approve the areas of study
specified for the degree; and,
sutoject to approval of the Board
of Governors, that Senate approve
the new courses in Theatre recommended, with the proviso that the
course in Playwriting within the
Theatre offerings shall toe
discussed further by the Dean of
Arts with the representatives of
Theatre and Creative Writing, and
shall then toe referred to the
Senate Executive Committee for
approval on toehalf of Senate.
Carried.
"Supplementary Submissions"
from Faculties and Schools
Changes in curriculum and courses presented to
Senate on May 20, 1964, on which no action had been taken
since they had been approved by the Faculties after the May
meeting of the Senate Executive Committee, had been considered by the Committee during the summer. The Senate Tuesday, September 8, 1964
Executive Committee recommended approval of these
submissions, which are recorded in an appendix to these
minutes.
Quote (see pages 3421 - 3422)

Mr. Todd  )
Dean Scarfe)
That the "supplementary submissions"
from Faculties and Schools which
were presented to Senate on May 20,
1964, were deferred for later
consideration, and are incorporated
as an appendix to these minutes, toe
approved, sutoject to approval toy
the Board of Governors of new courses.
Carried.
Extra-Sessional Credit
Courses
Bulletins of the Department of University
Extension listing course offerings for 1964-65 through that
Department, had toeen circulated. The Senate Executive
Committee was of the opinion that some credit courses had
been listed without prior discussion with the Departments
concerned, particularly in respect to prerequisites and
timetable.
Mr. Justice Nemetz)
Dr. Friedman
) That in future, the list of
credit courses to toe offered
toy this University away from
the campus, or availatole in
extra-sessional classes, toe
submitted to Senate for
approval through the
respective Faculties.

Prizes. Scholarships and
Bursaries
The Senate Executive Committee recommended
approval of the following new awards and changes in awards,
subject to approval of the Board of Governors:
Quote  (see pages 3422 - 3424)
In addition, the Senate Executive Committee
recommended approval of the B. C Lions Football Club
Bursary if it were offered on the following basis:
"Two bursaries of §150.00 each will be awarded
to students beginning studies at the University
of British Columbia, in a full programme
leading to the B.P.E. or B.Ed. (P.E. Major)
degree. To toe eligible for consideration a
student must have satisfactory scholastic
standing, have need of financial assistance,
and have demonstrated proficiency in the high
school football programme, or have
contributed through the field of foottoall
coaching. These awards are renewable
provided the individuals concerned maintain
satisfactory overall scholastic standing and
enroll in approved courses, or an approved
programme leading to proficiency in football
coaching. Applicants must be recommended by
the Director of the School of Physical
Education and Recreation. Awards, subject to
confirmation toy Senate, will be made by the
Joint Faculty Committee on Prizes,
Scholarships and Bursaries."
Dean Gage pointed out that this was not an
"athletic scholarship" in the usual sense of the term, since
the requirements for eligibility included satisfactory
scholastic standing in an approved programme leading to a
degree in Physical Education. Tuesday,   September 8,   1964 3410
Dean Gage   )
Dean Matthews) That the new awards and changes
in awards be accepted as recommended, subject to the approval
of the Board of Governors,
including the proposed B. C.
Lions Football Club Bursary if
offered on the basis outlined;
and that appropriate letters of
appreciation be sent to the
donors.
Carried.

terms on which students might obtain loans under the Canada
Student Loans Plan. The President commented on the
efficiency with which Dean Gage had undertaken the
administration for British Columbia of this new loan
programme, at very short notice.
Recommendations from the
Faculties
Faculty of Arts
The Department of History and the Dean of Arts
recommended approval of a new course
History 405(3) - A History of Russia, 1689-1917,
to be offered beginning in 1964-65. The instructor, a
specialist in Russian History, had already toeen appointed
to the Department.
Dean Naegele)
Dr. Norris  ) That the course History 405 toe
approved as recommended, sutoject
to approval of the Board of
Governors.

The Director*s report on the 1964 Summer Session
would not toe available until the next meeting of Senate.
For preliminary information, the Registrar circulated a
report on enrolment, indicating an increase from 5463
students in 1963 to 6220 in 1964 in credit courses. Forty
percent of the students registering for the 1964 Summer
Session had been in attendance in the 1963-64 Winter Session;
sixty-nine percent of the students held teaching
certificates.
Report of the Religious
Council. 1963-64
A report to Senate on the activities of the
Religious Council (a Senate committee) during 1963-64 had
toeen circulated.  In it, the Chairman recommended that the
terms of reference toe expanded by the addition of:
"To advise the Senate and Board of Governors on
questions of University policy in any matter
affecting religion."
Mr. Nicholls explained that this did not refer to
the academic study of religion. However, the Senate
Executive Committee had been of the opinion that the wording
of the proposed addition was too comprehensive.
Dean Gage        )
Mr. Justice Nemetz)  That the terms of reference
of the Religious Council
remain unchanged.
Carried.
The report of the Council was received for
information. Tuesday, Septemtoer 8, 1964       3412
Committee on Honorary Degrees
For information of Senate, Dean Myers reported
that Professor Hugh Trevor-Roper had accepted the invitation
to receive an honorary degree at the Octotoer Congregation.
Professor Trevor-Roper would deliver the Congregation
address.
Academic Board
In 1963, the Senate had appointed Dean S.N.F. Chant
and Dr. I. McT. Cowan as the representatives of the
University of British Columtoia on the Academic Board for
Higher Education in British Columtoia, for the three-year
terms provided in the Universities Act. Dr. H. L. Camptoell,
one of the Government appointees, had resigned from the
Board, and the Lieutenant-Governor in Council had appointed
Dean Chant as his replacement.
The Chairman of Senate suggested that it would be
useful and appropriate to nominate the Director of Academic
Planning as one of this University*s members on the
Academic Board.
Dr. Norris)
Dr. Savery) That Dr. J. D. Chapman be appointed
to the Academic Board for Higher
Education, to complete Dean Chant's
term as one of the memtoers of that
Board appointed toy the University
of British Columtoia.
Carried. Tuesday, Septemtoer 8, 1964       3413
Committee on Memorial Minutes
Dr. Robbins, as Chairman of the Committee on
Memorial Minutes, read the following tributes:
WILLIAM ALISTAIR BRYCE
In the death of William Al1stair Bryce at
the age of 42, on May 15, 1964, the University
lost one of its most promising younger men.
Outstanding as teacher and scholar, he was also
an unusually atole administrator. At the time
of his death he was Acting Chairman of the
Department of Chemistry at the University of
British Columtoia, and had recently toeen
appointed Dean of the Faculty of Arts and
Science at the University of Victoria. He
collaborated in the publication of over thirty
scientific articles, and was from 1958 to 1961
a director of the Chemical Institute of
Canada. His other activities included
assisting the Department of Education in
Victoria in the revision of Chemistry courses
for school curricula, and twice serving on
the Board of the Central Y.M.C.A.
Born in Kelliher, Saskatchewan, Alistair
Bryce received his B. A. degree in 1943 and
his M. A. in 1944 from the University of
Saskatchewan, and took his Ph.D. degree at
McGill University in 1947. He proceeded to
further graduate study at Oxford, where he
took a second doctorate in 1949, and in the
same year joined the teaching staff of the
University of British Columbia.  In 1958-59
he had the distinction of toeing visiting
research fellow at Cambridge on the Nuffield
Foundation.
Those of his colleagues who worked with
Dr. Bryce on committees can testify to his
genial and co-operative manner, his intelligent
and informed judgments with respect to the
larger affairs of the university, and his
sympathetic interest in the problems of
disciplines other than his own. His period
of service as a member of Senate was brief,
from the time of his election as a
representative of the new Faculty of Science
in September, 1963, to his tragically sudden
death nine months later. Yet short as was
the period of his memtoership, it sufficed Tuesday, Septemtoer 8, 1964       3414
to give other memtoers of Senate a glimpse of
his intellectual quality, and to underline
their sense of grievous loss in the untimely
ending of a life notatole in achievement and
rich in potential.
Dr. Rototoins  )
Dean Okulitch)  That this memorial toe spread on
the minutes of Senate, and that
a copy toe sent to the memtoers
of the family.
Carried.
THE HONOURABLE CHIEF JUSTICE SHERWOOD LETT
On July 24, 1964, in the death of Chief
Justice Sherwood Lett at the age of 68, the
University of British Columtoia lost its most
distinguished graduate. The honours accorded
him toy the University, and the offices to
which he was appointed or elected, in themselves testify to the admiration for his
achievements, and the affectionate respect
for his rare qualities of mind and character.
He was a memtoer of the Senate from 1924 to
1957; a memtoer of the Board of Governors
from 1935 to 1940, and from 1951 to 1957;
the recipient of an honorary LL.D. degree
in 1945; and Chancellor of the University
from 1951 to 1957.
Born in Iroquois, Ontario, Sherwood Lett
came to British Columtoia in his early years.
He began his university studies at the old
McGill University College and continued at
the new University of British Columbia, where
he was elected the first President of the
Alma Mater Society in 1915. Together with
his wife to be, Evelyn Story, he drew up the
first constitution of that Society.  In the
same year he enlisted in the Canadian
Expeditionary Force of the First World War,
and, while serving in France, was awarded
the Military Cross. He received his B.A.
degree in 1916 while on active service, and
returned to Canada in 1919 with the rank of
captain. Winning the Rhodes Scholarship in
that year, he took a B.A. in jurisprudence
at Oxford, and returned to practise law in
Vancouver, becoming over the years an expert
in corporation and income tax law. He was
three times President of the University
Alumni Association. Tuesday, September 8, 1964       3415
During the period between the wars he kept
his memtoership in the reserve army, and in 1940
he went overseas again, as Brigade Major of the
6th Canadian Infantry Brigade. After attending
Camtoerley Staff College, he became Colonel of the
South Saskatchewan (46th) Regiment, and in March,
1942, was given command of the 4th Canadian
Infantry Brigade.  In that same year, he was
seriously wounded in the Dieppe raid, and was awarded
the D.S.O. for conspicuous bravery. After convalescence, he became Deputy Chief of the General
Staff in Ottawa in charge of all army training
in Canada for one year.  In February, 1944, he
returned to his active command and in Normandy,
late in July, was wounded again.  He received the
C.B.E. for his outstanding record, was several
times mentioned in despatches, and, three years
after the end of the war, was appointed honorary
colonel commandant of the Royal Canadian Corps
of Infantry.
Civilian life brought steadily increasing
recognition. He visited Japan on a mission for
the Canadian government, was named president of
the Vancouver Bar Association, and in 1954 was
called to act as Commissioner in Viet Nam,
heading the Canadian delegation on the International Supervisory Commission. He returned
to toecome Chief Justice of the Supreme Court
of British Columbia in 1955, and in 1963
became Chief Justice of the Court of Appeal,
with the title of Chief Justice of British
Columbia. An honour that came to him in 1957
may seem of small consequence in the list of
these achievements, but it meant something to
Sherwood Lett. He was named Great Trekker for
the year toy the U.B.C. Alma Mater Society, an
honour reserved for an alumnus who maintains a
notable interest in the University and makes the
most outstanding contribution to the community.
Sherwood Lett's career, even in so brief
a summary, speaks eloquently for itself.
Comment seems impertinent, as we view the rise
of the soldier from private to brigadier, of
the citizen from lawyer to the position of
Chief Jurist and to the distinction of toeing
his country*s representative on the international scene. Yet something further must toe
said of the scholar and gentleman who never
sacrificed modesty to reputation, and never
lost compassion in success. His life was compact
of those virtues that lend dignity to human
existence, even while their quiet simplicity
encourages human emulation.  Of many tributes,
three will serve to show the range and nature
of his impact on his fellow-men. Tuesday, September 8, 1964       3416
In the words of the Prime Minister of Canada,
"I know of no Canadian who has served his
country in war and peace with greater distinction
and more unselfishly." The president of the
Canadian Bar Association said, "I do not think
there was ever a judge who was more highly
respected toy the toar than Chief Justice Lett."
Finally, the voice of the ordinary citizen is
heard in a letter to a local newspaper.
"It is 49 years since I stood side toy side in
the ranks with Chief Justice Sherwood Lett -
he as a corporal and I as a private.  I
followed his remarkatole careers with pride and
keen interest - pride in Canada, a land that
can still offer great opportunities for men
and women of notole character and outstanding
ability. Also I was keenly interested in
Mr. Sherwood Lett*s military successes, and
his great interest in the field of education
and later in his great success in the legal
profession, all of which I know was brought
about by sheer effort, with no favours and
with a firm adherence to great principles."
To these tributes the Senate of the
University of British Columtoia adds its sense
of privilege in having known and worked with
Sherwood Lett, its feeling of sorrow at the
loss of one who still had much to give, and
its grateful respect to the memory of a man
who was so unsparing of himself in the
service of his university, his community,
and his country.

"Education in the Health Sciences"
The Chairman had asked Deans McCreary, Leung and
Matthews to speak "briefly on the programme of education in
the health sciences, and to indicate the possible effect
which the report of the Royal Commission on Health Services
might have on this programme. r
Tuesday, September 8, 1964      3417
In respect to the training of medical doctors,
Dean McCreary deferred to two problems: the supply of
physicians, and the development of new fields of study in
health services. The Royal Commission had recommended
rapid expansion of the existing medical schools in Canada,
and creation of seven new schools to train an increased
number of physicians.  Not only population increases, tout
also anticipated decrease in foreign-trained physicians
immigrating to Canada, would require more Canadian trained
medical practitioners.  One of the major obstacles was the
shortage of qualified teachers.
Up to thirty or forty years ago, the physician
had been the sole purveyor of health services. Now new
groups of health personnel and new training programmes had
developed.  One objective of the Health Sciences Centre
was to bring together all members of the team providing
health services.
Dean McCreary anticipated that future hospitals
would contain extensive diagnostic services, and relatively
few beds for in-patients. This modification of facilities
would require changes in the training of medical
undergraduates.
In a brief historical sketch of dental education
in North America, Dean Leung stated that the first dental
school on this continent was founded in Baltimore in 1840;
the first affiliated with a university was the Harvard — '1
Tuesday, Septemtoer 8, 1964       3418
School of Dental Medicine, estatolished in 1867. The
"mechanical era of dental education", 1870-1900, followed
the passage of legislation restricting the practice of
dentistry to persons with specified qualifications in
education and experience.  Criticism of the medical and
dental professions by Dr. John Hunter in 1910 for their
disregard of oral health led to the introduction of more
academic courses (notably biological and basic medical
sciences) into the curriculum.  In 1921, the Carnegie
Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching provided a fund
for a detailed study of dental education in North America.
The ensuing report by Dr. William Gies recommended that
dental students have the same basic scientific foundation
as medical students. A report by the Council on Dental
Education of the American Dental Association established
minimum standards for the accreditation of dental schools.
The "scientific era of dental education" since
the 1930*s has been accompanied by advances in graduate
education for dentists, and advances in research. The
phenomenal growth in funds provided for dental research in
->        the past 20-25 years indicates the availability of
researchers and of facilities for their work.
Dean Leung stated that concepts of dental care
must be reconsidered, and the broader responsibilities of
the dentist to the community recognized. Auxiliary personnel
could toe used more effectively, and a new auxiliary group
trained to provide some professional services under the Tuesday, Septemtoer 8, 1964       3419
supervision of a dentist. The Royal Commission recommended
the training of dental nurses who could treat children up
to the age of eighteen.
The objective of the University of British Columbia
Faculty of Dentistry was to produce dentists who were
technically competent, biologically oriented, and socially
conscious of their responsibility to the community.
Dean Matthews stated tla t education in Pharmacy
had developed similarly to that in Dentistry, from
proprietary schools to schools affiliated with universities
or under university administration.  In 1921, the University
of Altoerta toecame the first university in the British
Empire to offer a degree (Bachelor of Science) in Pharmacy.
Since 1960, the four-year curriculum following Senior
Matriculation had become the minimum standard across Canada,
and the minimum requirement for licensing in eight
provinces.  In Decemtoer, 1963, the Government of Canada had
granted a charter establishing a national examining hoard
for Pharmacy in Canada, and nine provinces participate in
these examinations.
Education in Pharmacy would toe affected toy the
Royal Commission study of drug distribution. However, the
recommendations of the Commission on education were
anticipated in the second volume of the report, which was
not yet published. Tuesday, September 8, 1964      3420
The curriculum in Pharmacy was affected also by
increasing absorption of personnel with Pharmacy training
into fields other than community practice. There was a
general feeling on the continent that university training
in Pharmacy should no longer toe linked to the requirements
for licensing.  One result of this at the University of
British Columbia would be an increased content of toiological
sciences in the undergraduate programme in Pharmacy.
Education in Pharmacy would fit into the "team"
approach to the Health Sciences Centre through: (l) training
of specialists in hospital pharmacy, and training of
personnel who could provide authentic information on drugs
to the medical and nursing staff; (2) developing a Drug
Information Centre for at least some of the major hospitals,
including the University Teaching Hospital; (3) expanding
the field of continuing education for Pharmacy; and (4)
developing graduate study and research, especially in
bio-pharmaceutics.
