Departmental Status for
Since Dean McCreary would not toe able to toe
present for the full meeting, the President asked that
Senate give consideration at this point to a recommendation
from the Faculty of Medicine that Ophthalmology, which was
now a part of the Department of Surgery, should toe granted
departmental status within the Faculty of Medicine.
The Dean stated that work in Ophthalmology had
progressed very rapidly since Dr. Elliot came to the
University in 1961, and this division of the Faculty was on
its way to becoming the outstanding department of Ophthalmology
in Canada in tooth undergraduate and graduate training.
There were no budgetary implications, since substantial
research grants were received from the Federal Government. Wednesday, May 20, 1964 3361
Dean McCreary)
Dr. Gibson  ) That Senate approve, and recommend
to the Board of Governors, the
granting of departmental status
to Ophthalmology within the
Faculty of Medicine.
Memtoers of Senate Elected
by the Joint Faculties
The Registrar reported, for information of Senate,
that Dr. Argue had replaced Dr. Naegele as a member of
Senate elected by the Joint Faculties, since Dr. Naegele as
Dean of the Faculty of Arts was ex  officio a member of
Senate. A supplementary election, held to toreak the tie in
the 1963 election, had given the following sequence for the
next three replacements:
Dr. J. G. Foulks
Dr. Ross Stewart
Dr. G. W. Marquis.
Dr. Foulks, accordingly, would replace Mr.
Carrothers on Senate in view of the latter's resignation

Mr. Ralph Loffmark, representative of the Faculty
of Commerce and Business Administration, had toeen granted
leave of absence for the term of the current Provincial
Legislature, since he had toeen appointed Minister of
Industrial Development, Trade and Commerce. On the recommendation of the Faculty of Commerce and Business

of course offerings and programmes, imposed for financial
reasons, be lifted.
Mr. Caple)

courses, and expansion of course
offerings and programmes, be removed.
New Courses and other
Curricular Changes for

Recommendations from the
Senate Executive Committee
Department of Economics
and Political Science
The Senate Executive Committee had approved, and
recommended to Senate, a recommendation of the Faculty of
Arts that the division of the Department of Economics and
Political Science toe approved in principle, to become
effective at such time as a Head is appointed for the
Department of Political Science. This proposal had toeen
submitted to Senate in December, 1963, and had at that time
been referred back to the Faculty of Arts "for further Wednesday, May 20, 1964 3364
information on any changes contemplated in programme, and
costs (both short-term and long-term) of establishing the
new Departments."
Dean Naegele stated that the separation was
justified on academic grounds, since Political Science was
a distinct field of study. At present ten Faculty members
in the Department of Economics and Political Science were
working together in Political Science.
The cost of establishing separate Departments
would not toe much greater than the cost of continuing in a
combined Department. A Department of Political Science
would require a Head and a secretary. However, no significant
growth of Political Science was envisaged.
Dr. Friedman suggested that it would be helpful
to Senate if a general University policy for the establishment of new Departments were formulated.
Dr. Kania suggested that, since the establishment
of a new Department involved "fixed" charges such as a
separate office, secretarial staff, etc., one criterion in
establishing a Department should toe the number of students
taking courses in the particular field, and the number of
Faculty members.
Dean McCreary stated that the Faculty of Medicine,
which had discussed departmental status at length, had
approved three criteria: nature of undergraduate teaching,
nature of postgraduate teaching, and development of research.
In the case of Ophthalmology, the postgraduate teaching was Wednesday, May 20, 1964 3365
unique in character, and research was developing faster
than in any other field of Surgery.
Dr. Gibson recommended that each situation should
be considered on its merits, without regard to rigid rules
and regulations. The cost from an academic standpoint of
not separating a combined Department in certain instances
should toe borne in mind.
The Chairman then summarized the major points to
which Senate members had referred:
1. Undergraduate teaching, including numbers of
students and scope of field;
2. Unique character of graduate programme;
3. Unique character of research;
4. Practical consideration of finances;
5. Total scope of the operation, including
consideration of interest as indicated by
6. Need of independence to cultivate and strengthen
an academically important section of an existing
While Senate was making its decision on the
principle of establishing new Departments, the Chairman felt
a decision should be made now on the specific recommendation
from the Senate Executive Committee.
Dean Naegele)
Dr. Friedman) That Senate approve in principle,
and recommend to the Board of
Governors, a division of the
Department of Economics and
Political Science into separate
Departments, the separation to
become effective at such time as
a Head is appointed for the
Department of Political Science,
Carried. Wednesday, May 20, 1964 3366
Mr. Bowers)
Mr. Todd ) That the Chairman of Senate appoint
a committee to draw up for approval
of Senate guide lines to toe used toy
the Faculties and toy the Senate
Executive Committee in considering
recommendations for the establishment
of new Departments.
Revised Schedule for
Presentation of New
Courses and Changes
in Courses
In an attempt to consolidate the presentation to
Senate and the Board of Governors of recommendations for
the establishment of new courses and new programmes of
study, the Senate in February, 1963, had agreed that courses
approved toy the Faculties from the academic standpoint
should toe presented for Senate approval at the May meeting
only. Following consideration toy the Deans and the Board
of Governors of the cost of implementing such recommendations,
courses for which financial provision had toeen made would be
included in the Calendar material submitted to Senate in
Decemtoer for the following year.
In order to reduce the time required for approval
and introduction of courses which did not involve additional
funds, the Senate Executive Committee recommended the
following modification of the above procedure:
1. That minutes of Faculty meetings in which new
course offerings are approved by the Faculty for
recommendation to Senate and the Board of
Governors, be sent promptly by the Dean concerned to the President, with an accompanying
letter explaining the financial impact (either
current, or capital, including accommodation), Wednesday, May 20, 1964 3367
if any, on the budget in the present year and in
subsequent years.
2. That course changes which appear likely to involve
a budget request for additional funds be clearly
annotated - e.g., by an asterisk - on the submission
going to the Senate.
3. That Senate at its December meeting be asked to
consider course changes approved by the Faculties
from the academic standpoint, and not involving a
budget request for additional funds (either current
or capital), in order that these changes may toe
included in the Calendar for the next academic year
if they are approved toy the Board of Governors.
The President stated that when course changes and
substitutions of courses had no financial implications, the
responsibility for making this clear to the President and
the Board of Governors lay with the Dean of the Faculty.
Dean Myers pointed out that recommendations for
changes in courses and curricula were sometimes a consequence
of other changes, and could not always be submitted simultaneously for approval. He felt that when there were no
financial implications, the Faculties should be permitted
to present recommendations to Senate at any meeting.
Dean Myers  )
Dean Okulitch) That the first two recommendations
of the Senate Executive Committee
with respect to recommendations for
course changes and new course
offerings be approved, and that the
third recommendation be approved in
the following amended form:
"3. That course changes approved
by the Faculties from the academic
standpoint, and not involving a
budget request for additional funds
(either current or capital), be
eligible for consideration by
Senate at any regular meeting."
Carried. Wednesday, May 20, 1964 3368
Establishment of Religious
Studies as a Department
The Senate Executive Committee had approved, and
recommended to Senate, a recommendation of the Faculty of
Arts that Religious Studies be established as a Department.
An outline prepared toy Rev. W. Nicholls in Decemtoer, 1962,
on proposed development of Religious Studies (at the time
when Senate was asked to approve a major in Religious
Studies) had again toeen circulated to Senate.
Dean Naegele stated that, with the approval of
Senate, an active programme for the systematic study of
religion had toeen developed in the Faculty of Arts, in a
manner consonant with the non-sectarian character of the
University.  The programme was, in effect, functioning as
an independent department, relatively self-sufficient and
answerable to the Dean. He did not foresee any marked
growth, and therefore no appreciable increase in cost beyond
the present budgetary provision.
In answering a query on number of instructors and
students, Mr. Nicholls concurred in the view expressed by
Dean Naegele that Religious Studies would never toe a large
operation in terms of scholars or registration.
Dean Naegele)
Dr. Cowan  ) That Senate approve, and recommend
to the Board of Governors, the
establishment of Religious Studies
as a Department within the Faculty
of Arts.
Carried. Wednesday, May 20, 1964 3369
Proposals from the Faculty
of Graduate Studies
The Senate Executive Committee had recommended
approval of the following proposals of the Faculty of
Graduate Studies:
1. The acceptance in principle of the offering of
the Ph.D. degree in Commerce;
2. The acceptance of the programme proposed by the
Department of German for the offering of a Ph.D.
degree in German.
Outlines of tooth proposals had toeen circulated to memtoers
of Senate.
Dean Soward)
Dean Gage  ) That Senate approve in principle
the offering of the Ph.D. degree
in Commerce.
Dr. Friedman, while he was quite prepared to
commend the action of the Faculty of Commerce and Business
Administration, and its Dean, in proposing to expand its
graduate offerings, expressed the opinion that it was not
logical to approve a programme "in principle" without knowing
details. He felt Senate should not toe asked to consider this
proposal until a firm programme could toe presented.
Dean Perry stated that his Faculty had accepted
the requirements of the Faculty of Graduate Studies in
making a submission to that Faculty with respect to a
proposed doctoral programme. The Faculty of Graduate Studies
had given "approval in principle" to the proposal, pending
the development of a detailed programme in consultation with
departments in related fields. Wednesday, May 20, 1964 3370
He believed his Faculty would be sufficiently
large and diversified to initiate a doctoral programme by
1965, probably restricting its offerings to two fields at
that time, and expanding until by 1970 doctoral work was
offered in most of the major fields.
About twelve to fifteen Commerce graduates each
year continued to graduate study in the United States of
America since the training they sought was not available in
Canada. At present the only Canadian university offering
training in Commerce at the doctoral level was Western
Dean Soward, referring to Dr. Friedman's objections,
stated that approval in principle provided an opportunity
for the Faculty of Commerce and Business Administration to
discuss details of the programme with Economics, Sociology
and other fields of study with similar interests in research.
Dr. Friedman)
Mr. Bowers  ) That consideration of the proposed
Ph.D. degree in Commerce be tabled.
(For: 15; Against: 25).
Mr. Walden inquired what background would toe
expected of the prospective doctoral candidates: he felt a
candidate proceeding from the B.Com. to the M.B.A. to the
Ph.D. without intervening practical experience would be
qualified only for teaching.
Dean Perry replied that he and his colleagues felt
there was not sufficient emphasis in Canada at the present
time on the rigorous theoretical side of Commerce.  In Wednesday, May 20, 1964 3371
addition, the expansion of use of computers, and development
by sister disciplines of new techniques of analysis, would
increase the need for training at the doctoral level. He
agreed that the primary role for holders of the Ph.D. in
this field would be teaching and research.
Several members of Senate again expressed the
opinion that the motion should be withdrawn, and that Senate
should merely note that the Faculty of Commerce and Business
Administration was in process of preparing, in consultation
with related fields, a doctoral programme for submission to
the Faculty of Graduate Studies and, in due course, to Senate.
Formal record of this proposal would permit the Dean to
include financial planning in his budget estimates for
The President stated that the motion "That Senate
approve in principle the offering of the Ph.D. degree in
Commerce" merely affirmed that there was nothing about the
offering of such a degree to which Senate took exception.
No decision about the programme as such was required until
the actual programme was presented through the Faculty of
Graduate Studies.
The motion was then carried.  (For: 43; Against: 11).
Dean Soward)
Dr. Mann  ) That Senate approve the offering
of a Ph.D. degree in German, to be
introduced in the Session 1965-66,
on the toasis of the programme
proposed by the Department of German
and approved by the Faculty of
Graduate Studies.
Carried. Wednesday, May 20, 1964 3372
Recommendations of the Faculties
The Senate Executive Committee had considered a
number of proposals from the Faculties for introduction of
new courses, withdrawals of existing courses, and changes
in courses and curricula. The Committee recommended
approval, effective 1964-65, of the changes in courses and
curricula, and recommendation to the Board of Governors
that the new courses be approved for the Session 1965-66.
The Faculty of Arts had recommended approval of a
programme leading to the degree of Master of Library Science,
without specifying whether this degree should be offered
under the Faculty of Arts or the Faculty of Graduate Studies.
The Senate Executive Committee recommended to Senate that
consideration of the offering of this degree be deferred
until the new Dean of the Faculty of Graduate Studies had
been appointed.
Okulitch )
Dean Scarfe) That the changes in courses and
curricula proposed toy the Faculties
be approved, effective 1964-65; that
the new courses recommended be
approved, subject to approval of
the Board of Governors, effective
1965-66; and that consideration of
the offering of the degree of Master
of Library Science toe deferred until
the new Dean of the Faculty of
Graduate Studies has toeen appointed.
The Deans of the Faculties concerned pointed out
that the following new courses could toe offered in 1964-65
without additional cost: Wednesday, May 20, 1964 3373
Fine Arts 428 - to toe given toy a Faculty member returning
from leave of absence
Philosophy 430 - honours tutorial
Political Science 310 - which could not be presented for
approval earlier since it required consultation between
two Departments
Education 356 - part of the Industrial Arts programme,
cost of which was toorne toy the Department of Education
Zoology 306 - to replace one section of Zoology 401.
Dean Naegele)
Dr. Savery  ) That the motion toe amended to permit
the offering of the five courses
mentioned in 1964-65.
The amended motion was then Carried. The new
courses, and changes in courses and curricula, are listed
in Appendix II.

Prizes. Scholarships
and Bursaries
List No. 1 of awards for the Session 1964-65,
mainly to students in the graduating classes, was circulated
at the meeting. Dean Gage commented that the head of the
graduating class in Arts for the degree of B.A., Patricia
Mary Ellis, was a grand-daughter of Dean Daniel Buchanan.
Dean Gage)
Dr. Cowan) That medals, prizes, scholarships and
fellowships toe awarded as recommended
on List No. 1.
The Senate Executive Committee recommended that
the following new awards and changes in awards be approved,
and that appropriate letters of appreciation be sent to
the donors:
Quote (Appendix III) (see pages 3395 - 3401) Wednesday, May 20, 1964 3374
Dean Gage     )
Mr. J. F. Brown) That new awards and changes in
awards toe accepted as recommended,
sutoject to the approval of the
Board of Governors, and that
appropriate letters of appreciation
toe sent to the donors.
Supplementary Submissions
from Faculties and Schools
A list of submissions from Faculties and Schools
with respect to regulations, curricula and courses, approved
by the Faculties subsequent to the meeting of the Senate
Executive Committee, was circulated to Senate.  Of immediate
concern was a recommendation from the Faculty of Arts:
"That students who have a failure in one course
which is the last one required for their degree
may, where the mark obtained in that one sutoject
is 45$ or toetter and where the student's average
on his Third and Fourth Years is 60$ or toetter,
toe given credit for the course and toe recommended
to Senate for the awarding of the degree.
•^The actual mark obtained would remain on the
student's record card and would toe indicated as
an 'adjudicated pass*.)"
Dean Naegele commented that in the past, the Dean
at his discretion had raised individual marks in the case
of students who had a good overall record except in one
sutoject of the final year. Dean Gage, who had chaired a
committee considering student records in 1963-64, stated
there were nine students of some 300 graduating in Arts to
whom this new recommendation might apply. The committee
toelieved it was toetter for the student to realize that he
was being granted his degree on the toasis of four years' Wednesday, May 20, 1964 3375
work despite weakness in one sutoject. Students who wished
to do so might write a supplemental examination in the course
in question in order to obtain higher standing in that
sutoject, tout their standing at graduation would not toe
Dean Naegele)
Dean Gage  ) That an "adjudicated pass" be
instituted in the Faculty of Arts
on the basis indicated in the
recommendation from the Faculty.
Dr. Kania)
Mr. Todd ) That the remaining supplementary
submissions from Faculties and
Schools, if affecting programmes
and courses for 1964-65, be
approved subject to approval of the
Senate Executive Committee; if not
affecting programmes and courses
for 1964-65, be deferred to the next
regular meeting of Senate.
Any recommendations approved by the Senate
Executive Committee under this authorization would toe
incorporated in the minutes of the next regular meeting of
Candidates for Degrees.
May. 1964
Lists of candidates for degrees to be awarded at
Spring Congregations, 1964, were circulated at the meeting,
along with a summary of the numtoers obtaining First Class,
Second Class, and Pass standing for each degree. The total
number of graduands for 1964 was 1893, compared to 1597 in
1963. Dean Soward commented on the gratifying increase in
the number of students qualifying for the Ph.D. Wednesday, May 20, 1964 3376
Dean Curtis)
Dean Soward) That the candidates for degrees as
approved by the Faculties be granted
the degrees for which they are
recommended, sutoject to any necessary
adjustments in the lists to be made
by the Registrar in consultation
with the Dean concerned and the
Chairman of Senate.
Committee on Honorary Degrees
Dean Soward reported that Mr. McGeorge Bundy
would be unable to be present at a Congregation ceremony in
1964. Dr. Rocke Robertson had asked if his honorary degree
might be conferred in October since he would be officiating
at the McGill University Convocation on May 29th.
The Committee on Honorary Degrees recommended
that a second award be made at the October Congregation, its
recipient to be one of the following, in order of priority:
Professor Hugh Trevor-Roper, Regius Professor of
Modern History at Oxford University - LL.D.
Professor John Kenneth Galbraith, Paul M. Warburg
Professor of Economics at Harvard University - LL.D.
Mr. Gerard Piel, Editor and Publisher of the
Scientific American - D.Sc.
Dean Soward)
Dean Scarfe) That the honorary degree indicated
be conferred on one of the candidates
recommended, at the October Congregation, 1964, the individuals to be
approached in the order given to
ascertain whether they could be
present to receive the degree.
Dr. Turnbull inquired on what toasis the degrees
to toe awarded at each Congregation in the Spring were Wednesday, May 20, 1964 3377
determined. He felt it would have toeen more appropriate
for Dr. Arthur Dill Kelly, General Secretary of the Canadian
Medical Association, to receive his honorary degree on the
same day as the graduands in Medicine, or to have his degree
deferred to Octotoer along with that for Dr. Rocke Rotoertson.
Dean Soward stated that Dr. Kelly had expressed a preference
for May 28th, since he was to receive an honorary degree
from the University of Western Ontario on May 30th.
Committee on Memorial Minutes
Dr. Rototoins as Chairman of the Committee on
Memorial Minutes read the following tribute to Dr. M. M.
The death occurred on April 8, 1964, of
Malcolm Murray Maclntyre, Professor of Law at
the University of British Columtoia since 1948.
He was a memtoer of the Senate from 1951 to
1957, and for the period from Septemtoer, 1962
to June, 1963.
Born in Sussex, New Brunswick, in 1904,
Dr. Maclntyre took his B.A. degree at Mount
Allison University in 1925, and his LL.B.
degree at Harvard in 1928. He continued at
the Harvard Law School as holder of a Faculty
Scholarship, taking his Master of Laws degree
in 1930. Appointed Assistant Professor of
Law at the University of Alberta, he returned,
after his promotion to Associate Professor, to
the Harvard Law School as Fairchild Research
Fellow, and took the degree of Doctor of
Juridical Science in 1940. He was full Professor,
and later Dean of Law, at Alberta until 1945,
practised law in Sackville until 1948, and
joined the staff of the University of British
Columbia in that year. He was a memtoer of the
New Brunswick Bar from 1944, and of the British
Columtoia Bar from 1960. Wednesday, May 20, 1964 3378
Dr. Maclntyre's contribution to scholarship
in his field was notable. He was the founder,
and for ten years the Faculty Editor, of the
Alberta Law Quarterly, and created a new department in the pages of The Advocate, the journal
of the Vancouver Bar Association.  Over the
span of his active career, he wrote ten articles,
seven critiques of cases, and twenty book
reviews, for the Altoerta Law Quarterly, the
Canadian Bar Review, and the University of
Toronto Law Journal. Though his special interest
in the Law of Torts is evident in a number of
titles, the toent of his mind, described by a
colleague as "authoritative and scholarly but
never narrowly legalistic", is suggested in such
a title as "The Rationale of Separate National
Sovereignty". That this breadth did not
sacrifice depth is indicated by his appointment
as Chairman to the Canadian Bar Association'-
Committee on Noteworthy Changes in Statute of
Law of Canada.
The warm tributes to Professor Maclntyre as
a teacher and as a man suggest further that to the
terms scholar and humanist we may add the term
humanitarian. Known to us all as "Mao", he was a
most genial colleague on committees, and to his
students a kindly man as well as an inspiring
teacher. He gave of his toest, and he expected
their toest; he was litoeral of his time, and
generous in allowing another chance. Yet the
supreme tritoute we must pay is to that stoical
courage that carried him through these last
years of wasting and painful illness, working
and lecturing until his collapse a few days
before his death at the end of the term just
past. Such fortitude shows an element of
greatness in mind and character. That quality
in Professor Maclntyre his fellow memtoers of
the Senate, sharing with his colleagues and
students their sense of loss of the man and the
teacher, are proud to recognize and to honour.
Dr. Rototoins)
Dean Curtis) That this memorial toe spread on
the minutes of Senate, and that
a copy be sent to members of the
Carried. Wednesday, May 20, 1964 3379
The President referred to the recent tragic death
of Dr. W. A. Bryce, representative on Senate of the Faculty
of Science. A memorial minute would be prepared for the
next regular meeting of Senate.
Committee on Professors Emeriti
Acting-Dean Okulitch presented the recommendations
of the Committee on Professors Emeriti for the granting of
emeritus status as follows, effective July 1, 1964:
Dr. S.N.F. Chant - Dean Emeritus of Arts and Science
Dean F. H. Soward - Dean Emeritus of Graduate Studies
Mr. J. F. Muir - Professor Emeritus of Civil Engineering
Mr. Watson Thomson - Associate Professor Emeritus of
Okulitch )
Dr. Renney ) That emeritus status be granted as
Brief on Bilingualism
and Biculturalism
A revised brief on bilingualism and toiculturalism,
incorporating many of the suggestions made toy Senate at its
previous meeting, had toeen circulated. The President stated
that the Royal Commission on Bilingualism and Biculturalism
had indicated that it would appreciate receiving any submission to be made by the University of British Columbia in
July, 1964.
The ensuing discussion of the brief indicated
that it was extremely unlikely that a report could be prepared in a form acceptable to the Senate as a whole and to 1

Retirement of Dean Soward
as Dean of Graduate Studies
The Chairman asked Dr. Ormsby to read a tribute
to Dean Soward, who would be retiring as Dean of Graduate
Studies as of June 20, 1964, although he would continue to
lecture after his retirement:
The Senate wishes to record its deep
appreciation of the unique service performed at
the University of British Columbia by Dean
Frederic H. Soward.
For forty-two years Dean Soward has toeen
attached to the History Department, and for ten
of those forty-two years he acted as its Head.
Concurrently he was Director of International
Studies for eighteen years, Director of Asian
Studies for five years, Associate Dean of the
Faculty of Graduate Studies for five years and
Dean of Graduate Studies for three years. All
the while he maintained his reputation as a
productive scholar.- Wednesday, May 20, 1964 3381
When he joined the Department of History in
1922, Frederic Soward was only twenty-three
years of age. His studies at the University of
Toronto, the University of Edinburgh and Oxford
University had been completed, and in addition,
he had served for two years with the Canadian
Army in England, France, Belgium and Germany.
As an undergraduate his interest in History had
been whetted toy George Wrong at the University
of Toronto; his experiences in the trenches and
his participation in the Occupation Army's march
into Germany turned what might have toeen an
avocation into a vocation. As a Canadian student-
veteran at two great British universities, he
became enthusiastic about recognition of Canada's
"autonomy". Thus his early scholarship toore the
stamp of the Canadian nationalist of the 'twenties.
His later scholarship was that of a Canadian
nationalist who had turned internationalist as
the political scene first in the European, and
then in the non-European, world became more
From his first days in the Fairview Shacks
as an Instructor in History, the intellectual
vigour of the History Department's "boy-wonder"
was apparent. He was known to toe a voracious
reader, to have an encyclopaedic knowledge and
a photographic memory, and to have interests
so toroad that they encompassed all the arts.
In the "Old Arts" Building on the Point Grey
campus, he had a reputation for not suffering
fools gladly and for toeing completely objective
in assessing worth and scrupulously honest in
stating his evaluation. His students benefitted
from the standard which he used as his measure;
in the toest graduate schools of the continent
and of Europe they earned for the History
Department an enviatole record.
Throughout those early years when the
University was struggling for its existence —
and how severe that struggle was is reflected
in the fact that Professor Soward spent
twenty-five years as a faculty memtoer before
his salary reached the figure of $5,000 — he
conceived it his duty to bring the University
to the community. Making use of the public
platform, he shared his knowledge of
contemporary affairs with colleague and
student, journalist and Rotarian, and on his
frequent lecture tours into the Interior,
with fruit-farmer and small-town business man. Wednesday, May 20, 1964 3382
On Saturday nights, preceding and long after the
Second World War, beams of light pierced the
forest darkness of West Point Grey as automobiles
carried the citizens of Vancouver to the University
to hear his famous annual survey of international
In the University and in the community, his
contribution as teacher and scholar had made him
a marked man. His scholarly reputation had, in
fact, spread beyond these limits. His toook
Moulders of National Destinies, first published
in 1938, went into three editions, and a further
toook, Twenty-five Troubled Years, appeared in
1943.  In 1941, along with N. A. M. MacKenzie
and others, he prepared the important volume on
the Pre-War Years for the series Canada in World
Affairs. His specialized knowledge was put to
the service of the nation in 1943 when the
Under-Secretary of State for External Affairs
called him to Ottawa as special assistant.  There
he remained for three years, and subsequently he
returned for three summers to complete a special
After his return to the University in 1946,
Dean Soward produced a long list of articles,
pamphlets and chapters for compendia relating to
international affairs and foreign policy.  In
short order, his stature as historian was
reflected in honours which were accorded to him:
he was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society of
Canada, president of the Canadian Historical
Association and, some years later, president of
the Pacific Coast Branch of the American
Historical Association.
During those busy years, the Canadian
Institute of International Affairs, like the
United Nations Association of Canada, made use
of his prestige andnis services. Similarly,
the National Defence College, like the Royal
Military College and Air Force College, called
upon him.
In the summer of 1955, he was asked to toe
Co-Director of the World University Service
Seminar in Japan. Later that year he went to
Germany to participate in a study tour as guest
of the Federal Republic. During the summer of
1957, he was Guest Lecturer at Duke University
Commonwealth Studies Centre, and some months
later, he went to New York to be Rapporteur of Wednesday, May 20, 1964 3383
the Fourth Committee (Trusteeship) of the
Eleventh Assembly of the United Nations. By
1959, his reputation had become established
throughout the Commonwealth, and that year he
was invited to be Visiting Professor of Commonwealth History at the Indian School of
International Studies at New Delhi.
Under these circumstances, it was well that
Dean Soward had long ago learned that by the
device of split-second timing, more than one
feat could be performed simultaneously. As his
days became more crowded, the boundless energy
with which he had been endowed and the hatoits
of a lifetime stood him in good stead. The
mounting burden of administrative minutiae which
he faced as Department Head and as Dean, he
handled with meticulous attention. He also bent
his efforts to assembling the scholars who, with
the exception of the three "old-timers", make up
the History Department as it is today.
When, in August, 1962, Dean Soward presented
his presidential paper to the Pacific Coast
Branch of the American Historical Association, in
session at Los Angeles, the American historians
assembled there applauded him both for his
extensive knowledge and for the evidence he
presented of his respect for the most rigid
standards of scholarship.  It would protoatoly toe
an exaggeration to say that it was for these
same reasons that the Freshmen students in our
now-mammoth Freshman history course, emulating
the example of their predecessors in Freshmen
history, tendered him an ovation last winter.
But undoubtedly these were the same reasons
which led Carleton University to confer on him
an LL.D. degree, honoris causa. in 1962.
It would be impossible to enumerate all the
reasons why his own institution, at the conclusion of his forty-two years of teaching
experience, would like to honour Dean Soward in
similar fashion.  If it were left to the memtoers
of the History Department to single out the
main ones, they would protoatoly choose the
exceptional qualities which led him to hold a
light rein on memtoers of his own staff, the
generous appreciation he expressed for success
in teaching and in contribution to knowledge,
the opportunities which he permitted for
experimentation in curriculum, and by no means Wednesday, May 20, 1964 3384
least, his hatoit of relaxing tension at Department
meetings by his bright quips.
Apart from all these, they would want
recognition for a fine scholar, a gifted teacher
and an able administrator.  "A gude beginning
deserves a gude end" states the old Scottish
proverb, and any honour accorded to Dean Soward
by this body will in itself add lustre to the
Senate of this university.
Senate indicated its concurrence by enthusiastic
applause, which was fittingly acknowledged by Dean Soward.
Objectives of the Faculty
of Forestry
The Chairman had asked Dean Wright to address the
Senate on the objectives of the Faculty of Forestry.
However, he and Dean Wright suggested that, in view of the
late hour, this presentation should be deferred to a later
date, although Dean Wright's formal connection with the
University would terminate on June 30th.
On behalf of Senate, the Chairman expressed good
wishes to Dean Wright for his career in industry.
The meeting adjourned at 11:00 p.m.
