Basil Stuart-Stubbs, University Librarian, is on leave from the Library until
31 December 1977. He will be on loan to the Ministry of Education where he will
be responsible for planning the operation of a province-wide post-secondary
interlibrary lending network. Funded by the province, the project is based on proposals
from the recent report The Needs of Libraries and Post-Secondary Education in British
Columbia  prepared by Basil and Ross Carter of VCC.
During Basil's absence, Bill Bell is Acting University Librarian.
Elizabeth Morton died Sunday, 10 July 1977, at age 74. She was a national figure
in Canadian librarianship. She oversaw the founding of the Canadian Library Association
in 1946 and served as CLA's executive director for 22 years. Throughout her tenure,
she worked "loyally with good, bad, and indifferent presidents," noting that
"everybody has at least a few good points, and within the family we have to concentrate on
those." She built an important personal network among Canadian librarians, informally
overseeing promotions and appointments throughout Canada as well as holding together
and directing a national association.
Born in Trinidad, she was educated at Dalhousie University, University of Toronto,
and University of Chicago. She started her career as a school teacher and children's
librarian, later working at the Toronto Public Library. She came to Ottawa to manage
first the Canadian Library Council and then the CLA. She was a determined and brillant
director of CLA, initiating both political and bibliographic projects. Even after
her official retirement in 1968, she remained active in the library community as
a consultant.
Many staff members at UBC have vivid memories of Elizabeth Morton. Eleanor Mercer,
Sheila Egoff, and Sam Rothstein all recall her fine sense of humour and her ringing
laugh, her excellent memory, diplomatic presence and foresight. Indeed, Sheila
Egoff tells us, she was foresighted enough to remind a CLA conference speaker who
wanted to know what to tell the ladies that his audience did not consist of "ladies"
but of "professional women!" She provides for us all an example of professionalism
at its best.
The map library graciously awaits your donation of maps and other travel brochures
from places near and far. Check your suitcases and pockets for stray maps that may have
returned from vacation with you; please deliver them to the Map Division, Main Library,

as a collection development trip for the library.
