request made by Senate at its meeting on May 13th, 1953 J
"The Senate records its deep sense of deprivation and
loss in the death of Richard Claxton Palmer, whose
career was on March 26th brought to an abrupt and
untimely end. His connection with the University had
been a long one; he was a member of the first class
graduating in Agriculture and his academic record as
an undergraduate gave promise of the achievement that
was to come. As an alumnus he worked hard to promote
the highest interests of the University and his love
of learning was genuine and profound. He became, as
Superintendent of the Experimental Station at
Summerland, not only an authority on Horticulture but
a friend and benefactor of all who sought him out
with their own problems in the study and practice of
that science. His public appearances were many; the
practical wisdom mingled with sallies of wit in his
addresses made him much sought after. The University,
in recognition of his abilities and achievement, granted
him in 1946 the first honorary doctorate to be bestowed
on a graduate from its Faculty of Agriculture. Since
his death, the University has received at the hands of
a group of his friends and associates, the Palmer
Memorial Scholarship, established to assist university
graduates to continue studies in Horticulture and
related fields.
In the Senate his presence will be greatly missed; but
there, as elsewhere, — to quote from an address given
in the final months of his life — he "leaves the path
a little straighter, a little smoother, and a little
more clearly marked for those who come after." Friday, August 28th, 1953
Mr. Justice Clyne)
Dr. Daniells    )  That this memorial be inscribed on
the minutes of Senate and that a
copy be sent to Mrs. Palmer.

meeting of Senate of two friends of the University, Mr. J. A.
Campbell, a member of the University Senate from 1927-31, and
Mr. Chris Spencer, LL.D., a member of the Board of Governors
