Another cartload of books heads for the stacks in UBC's new Asian Centre,
pushed by diminutive Tung-King Ng, head of the UBC Library's Asian studies
division. Above her is interesting pattern of lights and latticework beneath
centre's skylight. The Asian Centre, which will be officially opened June 5, will
house University's outstanding collection of Asian books, including a collection
on Indie languages, which has been in storage because of lack of shelf space in
the Main Library.
Kenny cites need
for proper funding
Canada faces a critical shortage of
trained professionals and the problem
cannot be solved by educators alone,
UBC President Douglas Kenny told
Kamloops-area alumni May 1.
He spoke at an alumni dinner,
following a regular meeting of the
UBC Board of Governors in
President Kenny called upon the
public and private sectors to work
together to see that Canadian
universities are funded adequately.
He cited shortages of foresters,
engineers, agricultural scientists, and
business professors.
"Canada needs an estimated 8,000
professional foresters over the next
decade, or twice the number now
graduated," he said.
The UBC president said Canada
turns out only 49 Ph.D. graduates a
year in agricultural sciences, with the
country's need to 1986 estimated at
"Canadian universities have about
200 openings for business professors,"
said Dr. Kenny, "and it appears this
faculty shortage will continue." He
said only 15 to 20 doctoral degrees in
commerce and business administration
are being awarded annually.
Engineering schools in Canada, he
said, could lose their ability to
perpetuate themselves, since fewer and
fewer engineering students were
staying on for graduate education.
"We will not be able to turn to the
United States for professors because
the U.S. shortage of engineering
faculty is nearly 2,000."
Dr. Kenny said academic life had
lost much of its luster, partly because
of low salaries and deteriorating
"If our nation and province is to
meet the goal of sufficient professional
Social Work turns to television
UBC's School of Social Work used
the television broadcasting facilities of
the provincial Knowledge Network
yesterday (May 12) to kick off its
second program of distance learning
leading to the degree of Bachelor of
Social Work.
A dozen students in Prince George
are enrolled for the program, which is
carried on in association with New
Caledonia College.
The program, which lasts just over a
year, involves regular lectures and
field work. Two UBC faculty members
are in residence at Prince George and
guest lecturers visit the city from time
to time to speak on special topics.
Yesterday the students heard the
first of three TV lectures to be
transmitted in May on the topics of
social policy and research for social
workers, organized by Mary Russell
and Dennis Guest, both members of
the UBC School of Social Work.
The lectures on May 19 and 26
from 1:30 to 2:45 p.m. can be seen by
anyone who has a television set
capable of receiving the Knowledge
Network signal.
'Campus vacations' popular
The second summer learning
vacation session sponsored by the UBC
Centre for Continuing Education will
continue this year with an increased
number of non-credit programs for all
age groups.
Launched last summer by the
Centre, the session introduced
vacation-type non-credit programming
and also drew on the full resources of
the campus to put together a package
to attract holidaying out-of-towners
and local residents to the campus.
To date, approximately 1,000
advance inquiries about summer
programs have arrived from as far
away as Chile, Nigeria and Germany.
The Centre will sponsor city and sea
tours, and river rafting trips as well as
on-campus programs and there is as
much focus on the light-hearted as on
the academic in 140 course offerings.
manpower, then I believe that our
governments and the business and
professional leaders must together take
a serious look at the needs of our
universities," he said.
"At a time when we desperately
need a reservoir of people with fresh
ideas and up-to-date professional
skills, we should be using every tool at
our disposal to convince young
Canadians that the future of the
province and this nation rests on their
Dr. Kenny said he could not accept
the view that Canada could not afford
to educate the youth of the nation.
"Rather, we cannot afford not to
invest in their higher education," he
said. "When we neglect higher
education, we neglect our future and
the nation."
5 honorary
degrees at
Five honorary degrees and some
3,600 academic degrees will be
conferred during UBC's 1980 spring
Congregation May 27, 28 and 29.
The three-day ceremony will be held
in the War Memorial Gymnasium,
beginning at 2:15 p.m. each day.
On May 27, honorary degrees will
be presented to Elly Ameling, a
soprano who has been internationally
acclaimed as a concert and opera
singer, and Tommy Douglas, leader of
the national New Democratic Party
from 1961 to 1971.
Harold Wright, chairman of the
Canadian mining and engineering
firm Wright Engineers Ltd., will
receive an honorary degree on May 28,
and on May 29 the honorary Doctor of
Laws will be conferred on Edmund
Desjardins, a quadriplegic who
pioneered the development of
rehabilitation services for physically
handicapped people in Western
Canada, and Bora Laskin, chief
justice of Canada's Supreme Court.
Laskin was prevented from receiving
the honorary degree in 1980 because
of illness.
There will be a reception following
the ceremony each day in the foyer of
the Student Union Building or on the
lawn of the Maclnnes field nearby.
The Vancouver Sun has decided not
to carry the names of students
graduating from UBC this year.
Students will be notified by mail, of
course, but any student still not sure
of his/her status by May 26 should
contact the Registrar's Office. UBC Reports May 13, 1981
Eight of 13 UBC employees who were inducted into the 25 Year Club at a dinner in the Faculty Club Friday (May 8) are:
seated, James Bailie, plumbing inspector in physical plant; and Kay Rumsey of employee relations. Standing, left to right,
are: Bev Twaites, supervising technologist in pathology; fames Middleton, a technician in poultry science; Jack Wallis,
academic assistant to the dean of education; Bob Black, area supervisor for physical plant; Ralph Assina, a technician in
physiology; and Armin Tepper, a senior technologist in zoology. Also inducted into the club, but unable to attend the
dinner, were: William Bourdillon, farm mechanic at UBC's Oyster River farm on Vancouver Island; Margaret Logan, a
clerk in the forestry faculty; Shirley Magnusson, administrative assistant in the awards office; Douglas Urquart, a
maintenance mechanic in physical plant; and Sybil Lewis, a former secretary in physical education. President Douglas Kenny
presented pins to new members and told the gathering of nearly 180 club members and guests that employed staff make a
significant contribution to University activities.
Alex Fraser retires after 49 years
In 1932, at the height of the Great
Depression in North America, Alex
Fraser came to the University of B.C.
at the age of 16 to help his father in
the machine shop that serviced the
Department of Physics.
On May 30 he'll retire as supervisory
technician of the Department of
Physics after 49 years of continuous
employment on the campus. So far as
is known, no other UBC employee has
ever come close to matching his record
for length of service at UBC.
Mr. Fraser's first appointment with
the University, arranged by T.C.
Hebb, was as a lab assistant at the
princely sum of $20 a month. He
worked in a tiny machine shop in what
was then called the Science Building
(now the Chemistry Building).
Helping his father was supposed to
be a temporary job for Mr. Fraser,
who planned to resume his schooling.
But he busied himself setting up
demonstrations in laboratories for
professors and students, which led to
his being put on staff permanently.
He began taking over some of the
mechanical work in the shop and in
1941, when his father left to work for
the government in Ottawa, he stayed
on. By 1946 he was in charge of the
shop and its growing staff.
"The nature of the work has
changed quite a bit over the years," he
said. "In the early years the
instruments we built weren't nearly as
complex as the ones we build today.
There weren't any Ph.D. students
around then so there wasn't a lot of
research going on. Still, we had to be
pretty ingenious sometimes because we
didn't have the equipment required to
make some of the instruments the
faculty needed. We'd do what we
could with our small lathe and drill
press. A lot of the time all we had to
work from was the germ of an idea
with no drawings."
Mr. Fraser remembers with mixed
emotions the two years he was the
technician for the low temperature
lab, set up in the physics department
in 1950.
"We would get to work at eight in
the morning and we'd be lucky to get
out of the lab before midnight.
Usually it was three or four in the
morning before we finished work and I
remember a few occasions when we
put in 24-hour stretches in that lab."
Mr. Fraser said the people he has
met and worked with at UBC have
made the past 49 years very enjoyable.
Besides Prof. Hebb, friends he has
made at the University include the
prominent UBC figures, Gordon
Shrum and A.E. Hennings.
His involvement on campus includes
his term as president of the 25-Year
Club two years ago, and 40 years of
participation in the UBC staff
badminton club.
Beginning June 1, Mr. Fraser
intends to spend a lot of time on the
golf and tennis courts and has planned
a Caribbean cruise with his wife,
Alex Fraser, who retires soon after 49 years of service at UBC, says the small
lathe he's pictured with was already in use when he started work on the campus
in 1932.
Two 14-year employees plan to
retire early from their University
positions. They are Woodrow W.
"Woody" Coward, senior
administrative assistant in the
Department of Zoology, and Freda P.
Foreman, a secretary in the Child
Study Centre of the Faculty of
Education. Both joined the UBC staff
in 1967.
Retiring at the end of June after 13
years as a secretary in the Faculty of
Education's Research Unit for
Exceptional Children is Grace Wilson.
Dean Kenneth Lysyk, the head of
UBC's Faculty of Law, appeared on
behalf of Saskatchewan at the recent
hearings in the Supreme Court of
Canada on amending the Canadian
Dean Lysyk's April 30 submission to
the nine supreme Court justices was
described as "brilliant" by the
Montreal Gazette and "forceful and
occasionally witty" in the Toronto
Globe and Mail.
Dean Lysyk is a former deputy
minister of justice for Saskatchewan
and was at one time a federal
government staff lawyer on
constitutional matters.
Beverley M. McLachlin, an
associate professor in UBC's Faculty of
Law, has been appointed a judge of
the county court of Vancouver by the
federal government.
A graduate of the University of
Alberta, where she earned degrees in
philosophy and law, Ms. McLachlin
was admitted to the B.C. Bar in 1971
and joined the UBC faculty in 1975,
where she has taught both civil and
criminal law.
She is the second woman to be
appointed to a federal court in B.C.
J. Ross Mackay, the UBC
geographer who is internationally
known for his research in Canada's
Arctic, will receive the honorary
degree of Doctor of Environmental
Studies (DES) at the annual
convocation of the University of
Waterloo on May 29.
Prof. Mackay retires from full-time
teaching and research duties at UBC
on June 30, but plans to continue his
work in the Arctic, which he has
visited every year since 1951.
H. Peter Oberlander, director of
UBC's Centre for Human Settlements,
has been appointed to the Canadian
delegation for the fourth session on the
United Nations Commission on
Human Settlements, which met in
Manila in the Philippines April 27 to
May 6.
The commission, composed of 58
member nations, was established
following the UN Conference on
Human Settlements — Habitat 76 —
which was held in Vancouver. The
commission provides continuity and
co-ordination of all UN activities on
settlement issues. UBC Reports May 13, 1981

Members of Erosion Control Advisory Group toured beach on April 29 to have a
look at the protective berm of rock and gravel designed to stop toe erosion of Point
Grey cliff. Flat top of berm is well above high tide mark and has been covered with
a foot of sand. Dune grass will be planted in the autumn. About 300 metres of
beach between the two searchlight towers now is protected.
Two new gardens dedicated
Three components of the UBC
Botanical Garden were officially
opened and dedicated Tuesday (May
12) — including the 30-acre Asian
Garden that now is open to the public.
Also dedicated were the Physick
Garden, devoted to medicinal and
pharmaceutical plants, and the Frank
Buck Sundial.
The Asian Garden, reached via
pedestrian tunnel under Marine Drive
from the Main Gardens near
Thunderbird Stadium, contains the
principal rhododendron collection of
the University, along with special
collections of magnolias, cotoneaster,
roses, maples, primulas, hostas and
The Asian Garden has been
developed by selectively clearing
openings in a forest of Douglas fir,
Western hemlock and grand fir. Some
of the native evergreens in this garden
are 500 to 600 years old.
The Physick Garden is based on a
16th-Century engraving of a monastery
garden by the Dutch artist van de
Heyde. The 12 beds are edged in brick
and the garden is surrounded by a
closed yew hedge.
Many of the plants in the garden
have their origins in the Chelsea
Physic Garden in London, and the
director of the Chelsea garden, Allen
Paterson, took part in yesterday's
dedication ceremony.
The Frank Buck Sundial, dedicated
by the B.C. Society of Landscape
Architects to the late Prof. Buck for
his many horticultural contributions to
UBC over a period of more than 25
years, was unveiled by the current
president of the society, Prof. John
Horticultural consultant Kenneth
Wilson, who was supervisor of
operations for the initial development
of the Botanical Garden program from
1969 to 1980, officially dedicated the
Asian Garden at a planting ceremony.
Chancellor J. V. Clyne welcomed the
several hundred guests at Tuesday's
ceremonies, and noted that the UBC
Botanical Garden is the oldest
continuous University garden in
University President Douglas Kenny
spoke of the cooperation between the
Botanical Garden and the B.C.
Nursery Trades Association and the
B.C. Society of Landscape Architects.
"This important liaison with
industry by a University department
helps to demonstrate the important
link that University research has to the
economy of the province," Dr. Kenny
Roy Taylor, Director of the
Botanical Garden, said the 'Plants and
Man' theme for the garden program
was initiated in 1971, and he thanked
the many persons who had helped with
the development over the past 10
Basil Stuart-Stubbs, the head of the
University of B.C. library system since
1964, has been appointed director of

New home
for Sports
UBC's Division of Sports Medicine
will move to its permanent home this
week in the John Owen Pavilion in the
midst of Thunderbird Park, the
complex of playing fields south of
Thunderbird Boulevard.
The division, which is part of the
Department of Family Practice in the
UBC medical school, is developing a
teaching and research program in
association with the School of Physical
Education and Recreation to train
medical and recreation students in the
prevention and treatment of athletic
injuries and in the delivery of
community fitness programs.
The Owen Pavilion will also be the
new home of the Sports Medicine
Clinic, where the sports medicine
group provides a public service by
treating injured athletes referred to
them by off-campus doctors or by the
Student Health Service on the UBC
The three full-time members of the
division are Douglas Clement, Jack
Taunton and Donald McKenzie, who
practiced together until recently in the
Vancouver suburb of Richmond,
where they specialized in the treatment
of athletic injuries.
The wooden buildings currently
occupied by the division and the clinic
immediately south of the UBC
extended care unit will be moved to a
site immediately adjacent to the Owen
Pavilion later this month for use as an
office and seminar building.
Members of the clinic will see
patients in the Owen Pavilion
beginning May 19, the day after the
Victoria Day holiday. Parking facilities
for patients will be provided adjacent
to the clinic. An access road from
Wesbrook Mall has been completed.

study, the rate of increase of
information is even faster. The special
task of library schools everywhere will
be to develop highly skilled men and
women who are capable of utilizing
new technology to provide ready access
to information for the general public
and specialized groups in universities
and the professions."
A native of Moncton, N.B., Mr.
Stuart-Stubbs graduated from UBC in
1952 with the degree of Bachelor of
Arts. He did post-graduate work at
McGill University, where he was
awarded the degree of Bachelor of
Library Science in 1954.
He joined the UBC library in 1956
and worked in the cataloguing, serials
and special collections divisions until
1962, when he was named coordinator of collections. He was
appointed University Librarian in
In 17 years as head of UBC's library
system, Mr. Stuart-Stubbs has overseen
a massive expansion of library
materials and buildings. Between 1964
and 1981 the collection of physical
volumes in the UBC library system has
grown from just under 614,000 to
more than 2.1 million and library
expenditures have increased from
$752,000 to more than $11 million.
Major new facilities added to the
UBC library system during this period
include the Woodward Biomedical
Library, the Sedgewick Library and
Law Library. UBC also pioneered the
use of automated systems for various
library operations during Mr. Stuart-
Stubbs' term as University Librarian.
Mr. Stuart-Stubbs has also served on
juries and boards of provincial,
national and international
organizations concerned with public
and research libraries.
In 1977 he was on loan to the B.C.
Ministry of Education to coordinate
establishment of an inter-library
lending network for provincial
universities and colleges. He has also
served as chairman of the union
catalogue task group for the National
Library of Canada.
At UBC, he was one of the prime
movers in the establishment of the
University of B.C. Press in 1971. He
continues to serve as chairman of a
permanent committee that oversees
press operations.
He is also the author of numerous
publications related to libraries and in
his special field of academic interest,
historical cartography. He is widely
known in Canada as an expert on the
subject of copyright.
Dr. Derek Carr, the new head of the
Hispanic and Italian Studies
department, graduated from UBC in
1972 with the degree of Doctor of
Philosophy in Romance studies. The
degree of Bachelor of Arts in Spanish
and Latin American studies was
awarded to him in 1965 by the
University of Newcastle-upon-Tyne, in
Dr. Carr taught as a sessional
lecturer at UBC until 1974, when he
received a full-time appointment as
assistant professor.
