Before taking up the agenda, the President referred
to the death of Dr. Henry Ashton, a former member of Senate
and very distinguished member of the teaching staff of The
University of British Columbia. It was agreed that the Wednesday, August 27th, 1952.   1854.
Committee on Memorial Minutes be asked to prepare a suitable
memorial to Dr. Ashton, to be spread upon the minutes of
Senate and a copy to be sent to Mrs. Ashton.
Memorial to the late Dr. J. M. Ewing
The following memorial, which was prepared by the
Committee on Memorial Minutes, was read by the Secretary.
It was agreed that copies should be sent to Mrs. Ewing and
to the Principal of Victoria College, for the records of
that Institution.
The Senate records its deep sense of loss in the
sudden and untimely death of John Morton Ewing,
Principal of Victoria College since 1944-. His long
connection with education began when he was trained as
a teacher in this province. Born in Nazareth, Palestine,
where his father was a missionary, he had spent his
student days in Edinburgh and come to Canada at the age
of twenty-one. After teaching in the schools of North
Vancouver for several years, he joined the staff of
the Normal School and, in the fifteen years of his
service there, acquired a wide reputation as a public
speaker.  He wrote, with marked critical insight, on
educational and psychological subjects; under the
pseudonym "Paedagogos" he contributed for many years
a monthly essay to The B. C. Teacher. He was perhaps
best known to the public by his radio addresses and
his participation in panel discussions on the national
network. He held degrees from Queen's University and
the University of Toronto. His devotion to the welfare
of Victoria College and to the problems of individual
Students was unremitting. His energy and disinterestedness
made a place for him on many or Victoria's cultural and
artistic organizations. He lived to see the institution
he served emerge i'rom the difficulties of the war years
with an enhanced reputation in the community. No
recitation of his qualities and achievements can convey
what those who knew him best will always remember: his
transparent honesty, his unflagging zeal, his personal
modesty and charm. His influence was greater than he
ever knew; his example and memory will be a continuing
presence to those with and for whom he laboured. Wednesday, August 27th, 1952.   1855.
