Minute   of   appreciation  of   the   late   Dr.   W.   L.   Uglow,
Mr.   E.   Howard   Russell   and Mrs.   E.   G.   Matheson
and  Senate's   regret   at   their  passing.
The   passing of  Dr.   W.   L.   U?low,   Professor  of
Mineralogy  In  The   University  of   British   Columbia,
is   a  loss   to   the  personnel  of  the   faculty keenly
felt   by both  teachers and administrators.     Standing
high   in  academic  attainment   and professional   record,
Dr.   Uglow was   perhaps   best  and most   favorably  known
because   of  his   friendly  personality and  high   ideals.
Cut   off   in   the   midst   of  an  active   career  and
under   circumstances  peculiarly  sad,   his   loss   comes
with   unwonted   noignancy.
To   Mrs.   Uglow  and   the   little   daughter,   Elizabeth,
to   his  mother  and  sisters,   the   Senate   of  The   University  of   British    Columbia   extends   its   sincere
The   members   of   the   Senate   of   The   University   of
British   Columbia wish   to  place   on  record   their
feeling  of  loss  and  deep   regret   at   the   passing  of
Professor E.   Howard   Russell   of   Victoria   College,
and   to   convey   to  his   sisters   and   brothers   their
sincere   sympathy.     He   was   one   of   the   pioneers   in
University   work   in   this   Province   and   a  former
professor   in   this   University,   whose   influence   was
both   stimulating  and   inspiring.
Resolved   that   the   member?   of   Senate   of   The
University   of   British    Columbia  place   on   record
their   sincere   regret   at   the    death   of   Mrs.   E.    G.
Matheson,   one   respected  and   loved  by  all  who   knew
her   on   account   of her   sterling  qualities   of  mind
and  heart.
To   Frofessor llatheson  and   his   son   the   Senate
extend  their   deepest   sympathy. 1005
