The magnificent Sequoiadendron tree adorning this special 75th anniversary issue of
UBC Reports, was set ablaze with 2,100 Christmas lights on Nov. 27. The lighting
ceremony was a forerunner of next year's Lights of Learning campus project, when students,
faculty and staff will decorate the entire core area ofthe campus during the anniversary year
Christmas season.
This attraction and many more are part of the activities planned to commemorate UBC's
75th anniversary in 1990.
The year-Jong festivities represent a collaborative effort involving faculty, staff, students, alumni, the community at large and
all levels of government, the private sector and campaign donors.
Highlights ofthe year include an Open House from March 9 to
March 11 — which will be the first major event celebrating the
anniversary — Discover Summer at UBC from May 1 to Aug. 31
and a 75th Anniversary/Homecoming Week from Sept. 27 to Oct.
Campus projects, including a legacy program and a sports and
recreation program, will round out the celebrations. Commencing
next month, they will comprise 75th anniversary activities and
events which focus on the social, cultural and economic contributions UBC makes to the campus and to the community.
In keeping with the tradition of student initiative in the
university's development, UBC's Alma Mater Society Student
Projects Committee, chaired by Eric Ommundsen, will launch the
75th anniversary celebrations with a three-day kickoff Jan. 8 to
Jan. 10.
Various events and displays celebrating student life and learning are being planned, including a recreation ofthe 1922 archival
photo ofthe Great Trek. The AMS hopes to attract 7,500 students,
faculty and staff to form the letters UBC for this photo.
Undergraduate and graduate societies, fraternities and sororities, service organizations, clubs and other student groups will be
participating in the kickoff activities.
"UBC's 75th anniversary is an opportunity to highlight and
celebrate the achievements and successes of our students and
faculty, and to remind others of the value of education in our
society," said Ommundsen. "I hope everybody will enjoy participating in the student launch ofthe year and I encourage everyone
to follow the student example and become involved in the 75th
A campus-wide Open House, designed to highlight academic
achievements and student activities for the community, ushers in
the first major event marking UBC's 75th anniversary.
There will be something for everyone — from tots to seniors —
at Open House. Watch great moments in science re-enacted by
members of UBC's science faculty; pan for gold; tour the Botanical
Garden; experience a simulated earthquake; or gaze at the stars
at the UBC Astronomical Observatory.

Open House is featured
at diamond anniversary
Thousands of callers throng to your
doorstep and want to stay for three
days. What do you do with them?
At UBC, we let them star in a
movie, gaze through a telescope, pan
for gold, or explore Kid's World.
Open House 1990 is the centrepiece
of UBC's diamond anniversary and
will take place across campus March
9, 10 and 11. Most regular classes on
March 9 will be cancelled for this first
major event of UBC's year-long 75th
anniversary celebrations.
"This is the perfect opportunity for
the community to see and experience
the many exciting contributions that
UBC makes in teaching and research,"
said Agricultural Sciences Dean Jim
Richards, chair of the Open House
1990 committee.
"More than that, it's an opportunity
for the public to see close-up the facilities that are available here at UBC."
Three years ago, thousands of visitors crowded the campus to take part
in more than 400 events, displays and
In 1990, UBC's friends, neighbors
and alumni will be invited back to
campus to discover what our faculties,
departments and schools have been
working on.
Our visitors can watch the light
bulbs switch on as great moments in
science are re-enacted by the Science
Faculty. Or they can find themselves
on the set with a film crew from the
Theatre Department.
Children can play and leam at Kid's
World, which will feature a lost-child
program.   There will be an imagina-

tion market and puppet shows to entertain and teach tomorrow's university
Gold fever will rage at the M. Y.
Williams Geology Museum where
some ofthe world's largest gold specimens from Harvard University will be
on display.
From there, visitors can head over
to Pharmaceutical Sciences to explore
advances in drug research.
At Agricultural Sciences, there will
be free plant seedlings, a landscape design studio, quail hatching, live fish
and animal displays, and nutritional
know-how tests.
Visitors can examine a relief map
of the environmentally sensitive Stein
Valley at the Forestry Faculty. Or they
can explore new cultures at the Mu
seum of Anthropology and the Asian
The Museum of Anthropology will
also open its new ceramics wing, which
will house a world-class ceramics collection.
For athletes, there'll be Sportsfest,
a collection of displays and demonstrations of sports at UBC.
The judicial-minded can test their
legal sense at mock trials staged by the
Law Faculty. Afterwards, visitors can
test their stress levels at the Psychology Department.
For the starry-eyed, there'll be day
and night viewing at the UBC Observatory. And for those with a green —
or not so green — thumb, they can talk
to the experts from the Botanical Garden.
In keeping with the anniversary
theme, the Geography Department
plans to hold guided tours to show
how UBC has changed the landscape
of Point Grey over the past 75 years.
Open House 1990 is being vice-
chaired by UBC law graduate Peig
McTague and co-ordinated by Erin
Redden of the Community Relations
"We funded all 12 faculties, eight
outreach programs, sports and recreation, and School and College Liaison,"
said Redden. "The Open House Committee received many excellent proposals and we endorsed every project
we received. Unfortunately, we were
unable to fund them all."
The exhibits and displays will run
from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily and all
exhibits and parking will be free.

UBC's students will put themselves in the picture as they kick
off the university's 75th anniversary celebrations Jan. 8, 9, and
Students, along with faculty and staff, will re-create the well
known 1922 photograph of students standing on a field in the
shape of the letters UBC.
The re-creation, which takes place Jan. 10 on Maclnnes Field,
will be followed by the uncorking of a giant champagne bottle,
said Eric Ommundsen, chair of the Alma Mater Society's student projects committee.
A reception in the Student Union Building will follow and
offer a preview of other 75th anniversary events planned for the
Leading up to the official kickoff, student groups will present
displays and activities in the Student Union Building on Jan. 8
and Jan. 9.
"The events we have planned for the year are designed to
show what we have done in the past 75 years — how students
have served the university," Ommundsen said.
The anniversary kickoff will involve undergraduate and graduate societies, fraternities and sororities, service organizations,
clubs, and other student groups, he added.
"Students are one of the most important, if not the key element, in the university environment. They should be seen as
taking on the future, because they are the future."
AMS President Mike Lee said the kickoff to the diamond anniversary celebrations promises to be the student event of the
"Throughout UBC's history, students have been important
contributors to the building and enrichment of the university,"
said Lee.
"In this 75th anniversary year, students will join with faculty,
staff, alumni, and other members ofthe university community to
celebrate this important milestone."
Events scheduled throughout year

Open House will also feature Kid's
World. Special children's programming being planned for this event includes face painting and an imagination market.

The visual and performing arts will

recreation opportunities at UBC.
A Pacific coast music festival, theatre for children, concerts in the gardens, an international tennis tournament, summer stock theatre and a croquet tournament are a few of the events
planned for everyone's enjoyment.
Another feature attraction will be the
World's Longest Yard Sale and Recycling Fair.
Traditional Homecoming events
will mingle with new activities in celebration of UBC's 75th anniversary
during the week of Sept. 27 to Oct. 3.
UBC's official birthday party will
take place on Sept. 30 of 75th Anniversary/Homecoming Week. More
than 125,000 UBC alumni will be invited to help celebrate the occasion.
Featured will be a return to 1915 —
the year UBC was chartered as an independent post-secondary institution.
Period costumes, antique car displays
and old-fashioned entertainment stages
will help recreate a time past but not
forgotten in UBC's history.
Also planned for 75th Anniversary/
Homecoming Week are the Great
Trekker Dinner, the Arts 20 Relay Race
and a special Fall ceremony welcoming students to the campus.
The wide range of campus projects
taking place throughout the year, in
addition to Open House, Discover
Summer at UBC and the 75th Anniversary/Homecoming Week, will guarantee many hours of enjoyment and
Highlights include a UBC film and
television festival; an education day
on ethical issues in rehabilitation; an
exhibition of 16th century Rome studies and sketches by Italian masters including Michelangelo, Vasari and
Alberti; and a book about women at
UBC in the early years.
Dr. William Webber, dean of
UBC's Faculty of Medicine and chair
of the Campus Projects Committee,
believes that the 75th anniversary will
give the university and the community
a chance to reflect on UBC's historical
development, and to look ahead to its
"I have been around the university
for nearly 40 years as a student and a
faculty member," said Dr. Webber. "It
will be a year like no other for UBC."
As part of the campus projects initiative, a committee, chaired by Alice
Strangway, has been formed to identify permanent legacies that will be
created during the 75th anniversary
Dr. William Webber
year. The committee has developed
proposals for legacy projects and is
working with sub-committees in developing and implementing plans of
Legacy projects funded include
replanting the north side of Main Mall
to rejuvenate Fairview Grove; commissioning a metal plaque with etchings depicting a mountain panorama;
building a stone monument; and the
publication of a book recounting
UBC's history.
Campus projects celebrating the
history of sports and recreation at UBC
over the past 75 years are also being
planned for 1990. Chaired by Bob
Osborne, founding director of UBC's
School of Physical Education and Recreation, the committee is working
closely with the professional sports and
recreation community in creating, planning and implementing cooperative
programs with UBC.
Various sports events and displays
including a longboat race; a soccer
bowl; storm the wall; and an art series
of paintings depicting Thunderbird
sports, are being coordinated by Intra-
murals, and Athletics and Sports Services.
The appeal for project proposals
was made campus-wide. All projects
were to directly relate to Open House,
Discover Summer at UBC, 75th Anniversary/Homecoming Week or to
campus projects, including the legacy
and sports and recreation programs.
In addition to celebrating UBC's
past, present or future, the projects must
also be accessible to the community
and exemplify an area in which UBC
is unique, a leader or a centre of academic strength.
Each proposal received was forwarded to the committee responsible
for the specific area of activity. After
review by the committees — comprising faculty, staff and students — projects were recommended to the 75th
anniversary executive committee for
A total of 185 proposals were received and 113 were approved for
funding amounting to $340,000. The
university is working closely with the
corporate community to provide finan
cial support for these projects.
"The variety and scope of the project proposals we received was impressive," said project manager Sharon
Rowse. "Every faculty on campus will
be participating in the year's activities."
UBC Chancellor and chairman of
the 75th anniversary year, Leslie Peterson, said 1990 would be a year of
public attention focused on the university.
"It is important that our young
people and the community generally
become aware ofthe extensive educational and research opportunities that
exist on this campus. It is also important for our benefactors to see the return they receive on the best investment they can make influencing the
future of our country," said Peterson.
UBC President David Strangway
said, "We can look forward to a great
year of celebration." said UBC president David Strangway. "We are proud
of the rich and diverse contributions
UBC has made to the quality of life
and education in the province, in the
nation and worldwide."
A colorful array of 75th anniversary souvenirs — hats, mugs, t-shirts,
pens, sweatshirts, jackets, yoyos, fris-
bees, key chains, and glassware to
name a few — are available throughout 1990 at the UBC Bookstore. Prices
range from $1 to $150.

28 classes plan reunions
for Homecoming Week
UBC graduates from across Canada and the U.S. and even overseas
will be coming back to Vancouver to
meet old friends and reminisce during
the university's Homecoming Week,
Sept. 27 to Oct. 3, 1990.
To date, 28 graduating classes from
all years are planning reunions in 1990
including two classes celebrating their
40th—the Electrical Engineering and
Geological Engineering classes of
A special party is planned for the
10th annual, 25th annual and 50th
annual reunions, said Deborah Apps,
executive director of UBC's Alumni
Association. Graduates from the
classes of 1916 through 1930 will be
able to relive the Great Trek—the historic walk from the old Fairview campus (now Vancouver General Hospital) to UBC staged in 1922 to gain
support to move the university to its
present location.
A bus will be provided for next
year's trek re-enactment, Apps said.
Following the bus tour, a reception will
be held on campus for graduates with
UBC President David Strangway and
Chancellor Leslie Peterson as hosts.
In addition, a special 75th anniversary edition of UBC's alumni magazine, The Chronicle, will be produced
next year describing UBC's beginnings
in 1915 and featuring graduates who
have influenced its growth and development into a world-class university.
Overall, Homecoming Week
events will be bigger and better in
1990 in keeping with the magnitude
of the occasion, said alumnus Don
Holubitsky, chair of the organizing
committee. "The fact that it's UBC's
75th anniversary is more reason to
celebrate, more reason for alumni to
come back to campus, and more reason for the community to become involved," he said.
Students are consolidating their efforts with alumni and the university to
showcase next year's events, said Mike
Lee, AMS President, and committee
The community is invited to participate in many events, especially
UBC's official birthday party celebrations on Sunday, Sept. 30. Festivities
for that day include an official cake-
cutting ceremony and old-fashioned
entertainment. Antique cars and period costumes will add a historic touch
to the day.
Homecoming Week kicks off
Thursday, Sept. 27 with an anniversary parade and the university's annual fall ceremony which welcomes
new and returning students to campus
and to which their families and friends
and the general public are invited.
The 1990 gala Great Trekker Dinner, an annual event, will be held at the
Hotel Vancouver, and celebrate 75
years of students' involvement at UBC.
Great Trekker awards honor graduates
who not only achieved recognition in
their field, but who have also made a
special contribution to the community
and been of particular service to undergraduate students.
Traditional Homecoming events
such as Just Desserts, a student-sponsored celebration honoring people who
have provided special service to students, and Meet The Brass, an opportunity to meet UBC's president and
administration, will also take place
during the week.
Other scheduled Homecoming
events include an alumni hockey weekend, the Homecoming Blue and Gold
Classic football game to be held at the
5,000-seat Thunderbird Stadium, and
a student homecoming dance on Friday, Sept. 28.
One of the university's most popular annual sporting events, the Arts '20
relay race, will be held Sept. 30. This
year more than 2,000 community, corporate and university competitors took
part in the race which retraces the 10.3-
kilometre route of the original Great
UBC Reports deadlines

Look for a full range of
75th Anniversary souvenirs
on sale at the Bookstore —

shopping. Don Donovan,
Merchandise Manager for
the Bookstore, says "We've

use? Not only do they make
great gifts and thank-you
items, but there's a 10 per
cent discount for departments purchasing souvenirs
with an Internal Requisition
form. There's a special 30

January 8, 9 and 10 will
see a whole slate of events
in the student launch of the
anniversary year, co-ordinated by the 75th Anniversary AMS Student Projects
Committee. Chair Eric Ommundsen reports January 8
and 9 will feature student
activities and displays in SUB
commemorating the contributions clubs have made
to campus life over the last
75 years. Wednesday,
January 10 the celebrations
will culminate in the re-creation of the famous UBC
photo, with students, staff,
faculty and alumni forming
the letters during the noon
hour on Mclnnes Field, just
east of SUB.
Following that, President
Strangway will speak and officially open the anniversary
year. And to top it all off
they'll pop the cork on a
giant bottle of champagne.
The event not to be
missed is the re-creation of
the UBC photo. Students,
staff, faculty, alumni — it's
your chance to guarantee
yourself immortality (or at
the very least your 15 minutes of fame) by being one
of the people forming the
letters. Further details
about participation will be
posted on campus.
Open House will be bigger and better than ever
for UBC's 75th anniversary
year. Attendance for the
three-day event (Friday,
March 9 to Sunday, March
11) is expected to exceed
the tens of thousands who
visited the last Open House
in 1987. Congratulations to
all of the project groups
that received funding or
endorsement from the
Open House committee,
chaired by Dean Jim
Richards of Agricultural Sciences and vice-chaired by
UBC Law grad Peig
Highlights include backstage tours of Freddy Wood
Theatre with Bob Eberle
and his crew — but be
warned, the theatre students just may talk you into
being in a film they'll be
shooting during Open
House, Or why not try your
hand at learning another
language — with a user-
friendly computer for a
tutor? Karl Zaenker and
the Department of Germanic Studies will have this
on display. For more dramatic fare, Gerald Sandy
and the Classics Department will be staging performances and setting up
archaeological displays.
And if all of this proves too
much to handle, just check
yourself in at the Psychology Department's stress-
testing display.
The corporate sponsorship committee informs us
that our first corporate
partner. Air Canada, has
come on board for the
75th anniversary. Lilian
Ray son, Director of Community Affairs for the airline,
confirmed the company's
involvement in November.
Thanks, Air Canada.

19 15-1990
The University of British Columbia is currently entering a period
of unprecedented physical renewal and expansion, which will
accelerate the maturation of the
campus, and provide numerous
opportunities for positive development.
In order to identify the critical
planning issues the Department
of Campus Planning & Development is reassessing the status of
the campus and is developing
comprehensive guidelines for future development.
The process of campus planning at the University is intended
to be transparent and accessible
to all based on the philosophy that
the U.B.C. campus is an invaluable public resource as well as a
symbol of public commitment to
higher education.
The Campus Plan Project is di-
^    rected by a Control Committee
- which includes members of the
Campus Planning & Development Department.
This Committee is directing the
- work of a consulting team which
--   has been assembled to assess
previous planning work and to
develop the Campus Plan.    In
addition, an Advisory Committee
.    composed of members of the
- campus community will be assisting the Control Committee in the
identification of key issues and
The Campus Plan Project is expected to be completed in detail
by the end of 1990, with general
planning concepts developed by
mid 1990.
In order to assess the perception of the existing campus, its
Request for participation
strengths and weaknesses, and
in order to set priorities and define
a vision for the future, this project
requires widespread participation.
This participation is being initiated
by the questionnaire described
below. Succeeding phases of the
project will overlay the issues and
concepts which emerge and will
involve detailed development guidelines for each part of the campus.
It is important to note that
there are many existing conditions and building plans which will
require assimilation into future
thinking. Nevertheless, the ambitious program of renewal initiated
by the University for the period
1989 -1999 presents an opportunity to address a wide variety of
planning issues.
In the early stages of this project we need to learn about the
general perception of the U.B.C.
campus and we need to explore
concepts of future development.
Thoughtful and imaginative input
is welcomed from as many people
as possible. Responses to our
questions will be analyzed by the
planning team in order to explore
the major issues in depth.
The following list is intended to
provoke ideas and observations
about the current and future University campus. Respondents are
welcome to add others as required.

Our questionnaire involves
three simple, open-ended questions:
A. What are the strengths of the
existing campus?
B. What are the weaknesses of
the existing campus?
C. What is your vision of the optimal development of the Campus?
Please address these questions as broadly or as specifically
as seems appropriate to you. In
order that we may clarify comments as necessary, please include your name, address and

Open House feature
Astronaut to lecture
Meet an astronaut and witness scientific experiments in space without
leaving Vancouver, at UBC's Open
House, March 9 to March 11,1990.
Canadian astronaut Steve MacLean
will present two public lectures, the
first on how to become an astronaut. In
the second lecture, MacLean will discuss the kinds of science Canadians
are doing in space now and in the future, including Canada's role in the
space station.
MacLean will be aboard the NASA
space shuttle mission set for April,
1991. He has been training at the lab of
UBC Chemistry and Pathology Professor Donald Brooks, analysing the
kind of experiment he will be performing aboard the shuttle for Brooks' research group.
The experiment involves study of
the behavior in space of liquids which
do not easily mix, such as oil and water. On the ground, when such liquids
are shaken together and left to separate, the heavier liquid sinks and the
lighter liquid floats up. In space, since
neither liquid has any weight, a very
different behavior is observed.
Brooks and his colleagues are interested in this behavior because it
holds promise as a method for separating closely related types of biological
cells, such as tumor cells and the normal cells with which they are often
found. If such cell mixtures are placed
in the liquid systems, it may be possible to separate the cell types by separating the liquids in space.
Dramatic footage of NASA astronauts performing the liquid demixing
experiment on the space shuttle last
year, and another UBC experiment
examining back pain in weightlessness
will also be shown throughout Open

will showcase a wide range of research during the first major event
of UBC's year-long 75th anniversary celebrations.
"Psychology is very pleased to
be able to show its scientific side
and show how different real psychology is from the psychology presented in Hollywood movies,"
said Professor Stanley Coren, co-ordinator of the department's Open
House committee.
"We are going to have several of our labs open to the public and a
number of interactive displays," he said.
The hall of illusion, a popular attraction at 1987's Open House, has
been expanded and will provide visual and auditory illusions and distortions.
A computerized therapist, dubbed Eliza, will be available to counsel visitors who will plug information in to a computer terminal and
await its response.
If they don't like what they're hearing, people can hike over to the
stress and lifestyle testing unit and see what its computer tests can tell
Coren said laboratories where research is conducted into restricted
environmental stimulation — including flotation tanks and the Alpha
chair — will be open to the public for viewing.
"There will also be lie detectors set up so people can test themselves," Coren said.
An audio-visual display on UBC's Arctic psychology station —
the first of its type in the world — will also be on view.

"A lot to enjoy"
Discover Summer offers varied activities
It used to be that summer was a time people
fled campus. Not any more.
This year the invitation is out to Discover
Summer at UBC and enjoy picnics, concerts,
theatre, sidewalk cafes, a recycling fair and
many other events and activities.
Discover Summer at UBC is one of three
major events scheduled as part of the
university's 75th anniversary celebrations. Its
aim is to entice people to campus in May,
June, July and August — those normally quiet
months between the end of exams and the first
day of classes.
"Summer has always been my favorite time
of year on campus," said David Vogt, chairman of the event's organizing committee.
"Discover Summer at UBC is a wonderful
way of showing people that there is a lot to
enjoy at the university during these months."
Discover Summer at UBC will highlight
the visual and performing arts and sports and
recreational opportunities while taking advantage of the beautiful gardens and scenery surrounding the campus.
One of the highlights will be the World's
Longest Yard Sale and Recycling Fair, to be
held July 28.
A fascinating range of equipment from the
university's Surplus Equipment Recycling Fa
cility will be sold and auctioned. Departments,
alumni, student groups and other campus groups
will be encouraged to set up stalls and sell surplus
"We'll have a whole spectrum of things including computer, office, medical and lab equipment - even vehicles," said surplus coordinator
Vincent Grant.
Student clubs and groups will also be asked to
create the world's most unique grass court game
using only recyclable materials, preferably from
their own department. Several teams will be selected to set up their games and the public will be
invited to play.
The most whimsical event ofthe summer will
be the Alice in Wonderland Corporate Croquet
Festival. The weekend-long tournament not only
honors UBC's anniversary but recognizes the
125th anniversary ofthe Lewis Carroll book which
contains literature's most famous croquet game.
Players and spectators alike will be encouraged to dress in costumes based on characters
from Alice in Wonderland. Corporations will be
asked to enter teams in the tournament, to be
played on Maclnnes Field Aug. 11 and Aug. 12.
This summer, UBC will also host the Pacific
Coast Music Festival, an event that will bring
more than 3,000 outstanding high school musi
cians from throughout B.C. to perform on campus.
This multifaceted festival, to be held May 11
and May 12, showcases student concert and jazz
bands, concert choirs, vocal jazz artists and jazz
The festival is an annual event that has been
held in various locations around the province,
bringing together the best performers from several regional festivals.
Another way to discover UBC this year is the
Summer Campus Tour Program which will be
enlarged and improved for 1990. Added to the
twice-daily walking tours that escort thousands of
visitors around campus each year will be specialized tours for the disabled, seniors, tourists, families and children.
Summer stock student theatre will once again
liven up the arts scene on campus with two productions at Frederic Wood Theatre and, for the
first time at UBC, dinner theatre at the Faculty
Theatre students will get funding grants, hire
directors, decide which plays to perform and then
stage the productions themselves. Faculty and
staff will step in with advice when required.
"It's an opportunity for them to do all the
things they've been learning about in class," said
Freddy Wood production manager Bob
In another first for UBC, summer
stock players will perform children's
theatre in conjunction with campus walking tours.
Done in the Italian comedia delfarte
style — which Eberle describes as "animated, fun and often done with masks,"
student actors will pose as a travelling
company of players and perform the traditional fable Androcles and the Lion in
an informal outdoor setting.
The public is also invited to enjoy
UBC's great outdoors by having a picnic on campus and combining it with
visits to attractions such as the pool,
Astronomical Observatory or Museum
of Anthropology.
Also planned for Discover Summer
at UBC are an Asian art exhibition, an
historical fashion show, a series of noon
hour and evening concerts called Summer Sounds, driving tours of the Malcolm Knapp Research Forest and a contest to name the dinosaur skeleton on
display at the M.Y. Williams Geological Museum. UBC REPORTS Dec. 14.1989       7

Engineers prepare their vehicle for the Great Trek of 1922. Students marched from the old university site near what is now Vancouver General Hospital to Point Grey to raise support to
move the university to its present location.
Book planned on Forestry history
When Forestry Professor Harry Smith was
a UBC student in the late 1940s, there were
still skid trails in gullies where logs had been
dragged by oxen down to the Fraser River
from the West Point Grey forest.
"There are many, many interesting things
that people don't know about," said Smith,
now six months away from retirement. For
example, the gully down to what is now
Wreck Beach was once a log chute and a
walk through the trees would sometimes turn
up an iron shoe from the teams of oxen.
As part of the university's 75th anniversary celebration, he's gathering material for
the first book on the history of UBC's Fac
ulty of Forestry and its influential role in the
growth and development of B.C.'s forest industry.
Established in 1921 as a department in the
Faculty of Applied Science, Forestry's first
two graduates in 1923 were nicknamed "the
sawdust twins." In the early days there
weren't many forestry students, Smith said.
"Few people were interested in managing
resources, most were only interested in exploiting them," he explained. The
department's entire budget in 1944 was
Curious visitors still come to campus to
see one of B.C.'s first Douglas-fir planta
tions planted in 1934, Smith said.
In 1949, the department acquired the
5,157-hectare UBC/Malcolm Knapp Research Forest in Maple Ridge. It is still one
ofthe best university research facilities of its
kind in North America, containing some of
the oldest genetic, tree-spacing and plantation projects in the Northwest.
By 1951,UBC'sForestryDepartmenthad
become a faculty. From the 1960s on, there
was a growing emphasis on forest uses other
than for timber, and on research.
The faculty added a second research forest in 1987, the Alex Fraser Research Forest
near Williams Lake. With a growing num
ber of students doing graduate work, external research funding now amounts to about
$2.3-million annually with a small, but increasing proportion coming from trade associations and business. From one professor in
1921, the faculty now boasts more than 60
specialists in a variety of areas and more
than 2,900 alumni.
The growth of UBC's Faculty of Forestry
and of B.C.'s forest industry are closely
linked chapters of the same story, a fact that
will make this chronicle interesting reading
for anyone interested in B.C.'s logging and
forestry past. Plans call for the volume to be
published at the end of next year.
