been its benevolent household spirit.  For thirty
years, he endowed this place with his ripened and
practical wisdom, his vast public influence, his
hopefulness in time of trouble, his quiet but unresting guardianship of the University's integrity.
More valuable even than these has been the gift of
a personal affection which, it is not too much to
say, became a ruling motive of his life.

benefactions. '
'The members of the Senate of the University of
British Columbia record their deep regret at the
untimely passing of Dr. V. L. Denton.  They remember
with respect and affection his cheerful personality,
his willing co-operation, and his generous tolerance

in all phases of education will long be remembered.'"
