Sisters Rhea, left, and Gene Joseph
degree recipients.
Joseph family returns
to cheer Gene, Rhea
When Gene Joseph received her Bachelor
of Arts degree in history from UBC in
1978. her family came down from their
village of Hagwilget in north central B.C.
to attend the Congregation ceremony.
And they are here at UBC again this
week, this time to watch Gene become the
first native Indian to receive a Master of
Library Science degree from UBC.
Gene isn't the only member of the Joseph
family receiving a UBC degree on
Wednesday, the first day of UBC's annual
three-day degree ceremony. Her sister,
Rhea, will have a Bachelor of Home
Economics degree conferred on her the
same day.
Gene and Rhea will have a large
cheering section on hand when they cross
the stage. In addition to parents Walter
and Louise, attending the ceremony are
sisters Shirley, Bertha, Linda, Eileen and
Cindy, brothers Walter, Gary, Patrick and
Richard, brothers-in-law Norman and Bill
and sister-in-law Virginia.
Gene, who with her family belongs to
the Carrier band of Indians, is one of only
three native Indian librarians in Canada.
Her interest in librarianship was sparked
while she was working at the Native Studies
Bibliography Centre at Vancouver
Community College during the summers of .
her undergraduate years at UBC, and in
the Union of B.C. Indian Chiefs' resource
centre for two years after her 1978
graduation.
"I was originally planning to do
historical research when I completed my
history degree, but I enjoyed the type of
work I was doing with library collections so
much I decided to pursue librarianship,"
says Gene. "What I'd like to do now is to
work as a freelance librarian for Indian
organizations in B.C. A lot of native
organizations have collections that need to
be developed, but few can afford a full-
time librarian."
Rhea, who graduated from St. Paul's
Hospital as a registered nurse in 1972,
worked in Prince George until she came to
UBC four years ago. She is now specializing
in the field of dietetics and is leaving in
October to take up a one-year dietetics
internship in Winnipeg.
And it may not be long before the
Joseph family returns to UBC's War
Memorial Gymnasium for yet another
graduation ceremony. Sister Bertha is
taking time out to raise a family, but has
only a few credits to earn before she
completes her Bachelor of Arts degree in
anthropology.
More than 3,500 get
degrees during
Spring Congregation
The University of British Columbia's
annual Spring Congregation takes place
today, tomorrow and Friday, with more
than 3,500 graduating students having
academic degrees conferred upon them by
Chancellor J.V. Clyne.
Largest single graduating group are
those receiving the degree of Bachelor of
Arts, which will go today to 610 students.
There are 414 graduating with Bachelor of
Science degrees, 370 with Bachelor of
Commerce degrees, 331 with Bachelor of
Education degrees and 227 with Bachelor
of Applied Science (Engineering) degrees.
The annual degree-granting ceremony in
the War Memorial Gymnasium follows
traditional lines. The graduating students,
whose degrees were approved officially by
the University Senate on May 19, are
presented individually to Chancellor Clyne
by the deans (or delegates) of the faculties
awarding the degrees.
The student then crosses the platform
and kneels before the chancellor, who taps
the graduant lightly on the head with his
mortar board while saying "I admit you."
At this point the student has officially
graduated and been admitted to the
Convocation of the University, which is
made up of all graduates, the faculty and
Senate of the University, and the
chancellor.
Standing on the chancellor's left during
the ceremony will be UBC's president and
vice-chancellor, Dr. Douglas T. Kenny,
who will present medals and other awards
to outstanding graduates after their degrees
have been conferred.
At today's ceremony, students will
receive doctor's degrees in musical arts..
master's degrees in arts, fine arts, music,
social work, business administration and
library science, bachelor's degrees in arts,
fine arts, home economics, music, social
work and commerce, and licentiates in
accounting.
In addition, honorary degrees will be
conferred upon S. Robert Blair, president
and chief executive officer of NOVA, the
Alberta corporation awarded the right to
construct the Canadian section of the
Alaska Highway gas pipeline project, and
R. Gordon Robertson, president of the
Institute for Research on Public Policy and
a former leading civil servant in the federal
government.
On Thursday, students will receive
Doctor of Education degrees, master's
degrees in science, education and physical
education, and bachelor's degrees in
science, education, physical education and
recreation.
Honorary degrees will be conferred
Thursday upon Professor Emeritus of
Botany Vladimir Krajina, a pioneer forest
ecologist who was instrumental in the
establishment of ecological reserves in
B.C., and upon Ray G. Williston,
chairman and president of B.C. Cellulose
and a former member of the B.C.
Legislature from 1953 to 1972.
On Friday, May 28, final day of
Congregation, Doctor of Philosophy
degrees will be conferred. Students will also
receive master's degrees in applied science,
engineering, architecture, nursing, forestry
and law. Bachelor's degrees will be
conferred in science (agriculture), applied
science, architecture, nursing, science in
forestry, science (pharmacy), and
landscape architecture. Doctor of

of Law George F. Curtis, the first dean of
law when the UBC law faculty was
organized in 1945. He is known
internationally for his work on the law of
the sea.
The gift of the 1982 graduating class will
be divided among organizations based at
the University to assist them in the
continuation of their activities. The
organizations chosen by the graduating
class are the President's Committee for
Concerns of the Handicapped, to purchase

A visiting professorship to be known as
the Walter S. Owen Chair of Law is being
established at UBC.
The chair is being endowed by family
and friends of the former lieutenant
governor of B.C., who died in 1981.
Dean Kenneth Lysyk said distinguished
lawyers will be appointed as Owen
professors for periods of up to three years
and will work in selected areas, writing and
teaching.
"It is hoped that in this way the training
of lawyers will be enriched, legal writing in
Canada developed, and the name of
Walter Owen appropriately and
permanently remembered," Dean Lysyk
said.
He hoped a first appointment could be
made in the fall of 1983.
Walter Owen, QC, had a long-standing
interest in legal education, which began
prior to the establishment of a Faculty of
Law at UBC following the Second World
War.
His services to the University and to the
legal profession were recognized by UBC
when it conferred upon him the honorary
degree of Doctor of Laws.
'Author' of social
security dies at 75
Professor Emeritus Leonard Marsh, a
25-year member of the UBC faculty who
has been described as the author of "the
most important single document in the
history of the development of the welfare
state in Canada," died on May 10 at the
age of 75.
Funeral services for Prof. Marsh, who
retired in 1972 after a teaching and
research career in UBC's School of Social
Work and Faculty of Education, were held
on May 18 at the Unitarian Church at 49th
and Oak in Vancouver.
It was in 1943, four years before he
joined the UBC faculty, that Prof. Marsh,
then research advisor to the federal
government's Committee on
.Jte<:cMMtfucjtw^;s;ubmitted.his";ft^
Social Security for Canada.
The "Marsh Report" became a pivotal
document in the development of Canadian
social security programs and is considered
this country's equivalent of the 1942 British
report on social security written by Sir
William Beveridge, with whom Prof.
Marsh was associated as a research assistant
in England.
One unique aspect of the Marsh Report
was its advocacy of children's allowances,
which were initiated by the federal
government in 1944 as the Family
Allowance scheme.
Born in England, Prof. Marsh graduated
from the London School of Economics in
1928 with the Gonner Prize "for-,
conspicuous merit in economics, theoretical
and applied."
He joined the faculty of McGill
University in 1930 as director of social
research. He was awarded the degrees of
Master of Arts and Doctor of Philosophy
by McGill in 1934 and 1940, respectively.
For 10 years as a faculty member at
McGill, Prof. Marsh directed a pioneepi\g-v«
program of social research on such topics
as the economic causes of depression and
unemployment, the occupational and
industrial structure of Canada, vocational
and educational problems and social
legislation.
Following his work as research advisor to
the federal Committee on Reconstruction,
Prof. Marsh joined the staff of the first UN
agency, the United Nations Relief and
Rehabilitation Administration, first as a
welfare officer and later as chief editorial
officer for the European region.
Prof. Marsh joined the UBC faculty in
1947, first as a member of the School of
Social Work and, from 1965 until 1972, as
a professor in the Faculty of Education.
One of the continuing themes of Prof.
Marsh's research and writing career was his
advocacy of adequate housing for
Canadians in all socioeconomic groups.
He was also closely associated with the
development of community colleges in B.C.
He wrote a report which led to the
establishment of Malaspina College in
Nanaimo and also undertook an extensive
review of the Lower Mainland community
college system in 1975.
Quite apart from his academic work,
Prof. Marsh was an accomplished amateur
musician who taught himself to play the
A clarification ...
The edition of UBC Reports which
appeared on April 14 contained a news
report stating that the UBC Graduate
Student Association (GSA) held its annual
general meeting on March 31 and
approved a new constitution and by-laws
for the Thea Koerner Graduate Student
Centre.
Robert Cameron, the president of the
GSA, has written to the editor of UBC
Reports to point out that the March 31
meeting was the annual meeting of the
Thea Koerner Graduate Student Centre
and it was the members of that
organization, not all of whom are members
of the GSA, who approved the changes in
the constitution and by-laws.
violin, viola and cello. He was the author
in 1972 of a volume entitled At Home
With Music and was founding member of
the Friends of Chamber Music of
Vancouver.
Prof. Marsh was predeceased by his wife,
Betty, well known as a broadcaster and
producer for the Canadian Broadcasting
Corporation in Vancouver. He is survived
by a nephew, John J. Marsh of Windsor,
Ont., and a niece, Betty Scott, of
Vancouver.

Forestry change prompts debate
The long-standing question of how a
university ensures that its students acquire
a liberal education hovered over the May
meeting of UBC's Senate during a debate
which resulted in approval of a new four-
year undergraduate program in the Faculty
of Forestry.
Approval of the new program, which
will take effect in September, 1983, means
that B.C. secondary school graduates with
the necessary Grade 11 and 12 science
courses will be admitted to the forestry
faculty without first completing a
. preparatory year in the Faculty of Science.
Although the new forestry program was
approved by a substantial majority at
Senate and had the imprimatur of that
body's curriculum committee, there had
obviously been much behind-the-scenes
discussion concerning the academic
breadth of the program.
Dr. James Richards, chairman of
Senate's curriculum committee, said that
one of the issues raised in considering the
program "focussed on whether the program
required or allowed sufficient breadth of
experience in intellectual pursuits.''
The issue of breadth in undergraduate
degree programs will be brought even more
sharply into focus when Senate next meets
in September as the result of notice of
motion given at the May meeting by
psychology department head Dr. Peter
Suedfeld, who is also a member of Senate's
curriculum committee.
Dr. Suedfeld's motion asks that the
policy sub-committee of the Senate
curriculum committee "draw up
recommendations as to minimum breadth
requirements in the pre-baccalaureate
The Special Collections Division, located on the top floor, south wing, of the
Main Library, is featuring an exhibit of original letters, manuscripts and
memorabilia of Italian hero   Giuseppi Garibaldi. The exhibit continues until the
end of July.
Display honors Garibaldi
A unique collection of original letters,
manuscripts and memorabilia of Giuseppi
Garibaldi, the Italian liberator and hero, is
on display in the Special Collections
Division of the Main Library. Garibaldi
was not only an Italian patriot, he was
also, according to his biographer D.M.
Smith, a religious freethinker, a champion
of female emancipation, of the equality of
man, and of the rights of Labor.
He approved of cremation	
vegetarianism, racial equality, and the
abolition of capital punishment. It is these
beliefs of Garibaldi which help explain how
the Garibaldi relics came to be in the UBC
Library.
In 1860 a young Englishman named
Hugh Reginald Haweis joined a Garibaldi
excursion to Naples and Sicily. The
"excursionists" were provisioned, outfitted
with appropriate costumes and means of
self-defence. Haweis was therefore present
at the siege of Capua, where he recorded a
speech of Garibaldi's and watched from a
lamp-post the triumphal entry of Garibaldi
and Victor Emmanuel into Naples.
Haweis was later to become an
immensely popular non-conformist
preacher in central London. In 1864, when
Garibaldi was one of the most widely-
known figures in the world, he visited
London and set off demonstrations of
hysterical joy among the English working
classes and also among the liberal, free-
thinking members of English society.
The hero, whose bath water was being
hawked on the streets of London, was feted
by all, and the Reverend Haweis and his
wife, an early advocate of women's rights,
were among the celebrants. Their social
and political views were similar to his, and
in 1870 Haweis, who was the editor of
Cassell's Magazine, persuaded Garibaldi to
write his memoirs for the journal.
When Garibaldi died on June 2, 1882,
all London mourned his death and Haweis
arranged for an exhibition of Garibaldi
and Mazzini relics in the vestry of St.
James's, Marylebone. This proved to be so
well attended that it was later moved to
the Alexandra Palace. It is some of these
relics (including letters, manuscripts and
even a few of Garibaldi's hairs) which are
on exhibit at UBC.
How did they come to the University of
British Columbia?
Reverend Haweis' son, Lionel, joined the
staff of the UBC Library in 1918. A very
literate man, much appreciated by
students, he treasured his family papers
and looked after them lovingly. After his
death his daughter, Mrs. Renee Chipman,
gave the Garibaldi collection to the
University Library. It seems appropriate
that the man for whom Garibaldi
Mountain in B.C. was named in 1860 by
Captain Richards of the Royal Navy,
should be remembered on the Centenerary
of his death by the University of British
Columbia.

programs of the University" for discussion
at Senate.
The same motion asks Senate's
curriculum committee to "suspend
approval of new programs or major
program changes pending the acceptance
of recommendations as to minimal breadth
requirements by Senate."
Speaking at the May meeting, Prof.
Suedfeld said that raising the issue of
breadth requirements in connection with
the proposed forestry program was only
"chronological coincidence."
He said that a number of major changes
in UBC degree programs had occurred
over a period of time in a piecemeal
fashion, "so that Senate, which is charged
with looking ever the entire University
offerings, doesn't really do the integration,
synthesis and comparison that it might."
While emphasizing that faculties and
departments should be left alone to run
their own programs, Prof. Suedfeld added:
"There is a proper role for Senate, and
that is to set general guidelines for UBC
academic programs and one of the areas
that should be clear is breadth."
Prof. Suedfeld then moved that the
proposed four-year forestry program be
tabled until his motion had been disposed
of at the September meeting. The tabling
motion was defeated by a substantial
majority.
Later in the debate. Prof. Suedfeld said
the concept of breadth or freedom of
choice in university education meant that
provision should be made for students to
take courses "not directly related to their
professional preparation, regardless of how
complex that profession may be."
An even finer point was put on the
breadth question by Dr. Neil Sutherland,
another member of the Senate curriculum
committee, who said it should be possible
to take six or nine units in such areas as
music, fine arts, history or English as part
of a professional degree program:
At the conclusion of the debate. Senate's
chairman, President Douglas Kenny,
remarked that Dr. Suedfeld's motion "goes
beyond the issue of Forestry and strikes at
every faculty. If it (the motion) were passed
and a vehicle was found for implementing
changes, then Senate would be saying to
faculties that there should be breadth
requirements.'
None of this convinced Senate that there
was any need to delay approval of the new
four-year forestry program, which leads to
degrees in the areas of forest resource
management, forest harvesting, forest
science or wood science and industry.
Apart from general entrance
requirements for UBC, which include
French or a foreign language, students
from Grade 12 wishing to enter the new
program must have passed Algebra 12 and
at least two Grade 11 and two Grade 12
courses in biology, chemistry or physics.
The question of breadth was not the
only issue raised during the debate on the
program.
Science dean Prof. Cyril Finnegan
characterized the proposed forestry
program as "technical training and not an
education." He said his faculty had data
which showed that secondary school science
was not adequate in preparing students for
first-year scientific studies at the University.
He said he thought Forestry and the
Faculty of Applied Science, which is also
developing a four-year program for
engineering, might have gone in the other
direction and used first-year Arts and
Science as a screening process to reduce
failures.
Dean Daniel Birch, head of the Faculty
of Education, said Senate should be
aware that when the University specifies
entrance requirements in great detail it is
also limiting the breadth of the secondary
school program.
"In Grades 11 and 12," he said,
"students are moving out of arts programs
because certain professional programs are
prescribing the number of science-oriented
courses required and leaving very little
room for experimentation." UBC Reports May 26, 1982

* includes a small proportion of undergraduate teaching assistantships.
Notes: (1) The grand total does not include scholarships (including Medical Research Council Studentships) that are administered
through the associate dean (Research) in the Faculty of Medicine.
(2) The grand total does not include need-based support in the form of loans and bursaries administered through the Office of
Awards and Financial Aid. Support for graduate students from this source is in the order of $500,000.
(3) The figures in the table are estimates based on records available to the Faculty of Graduate Studies. The total represents a
lower limit, in that there are undoubtedly additional awards that are handled directly between student and granting
agency (as for example, with foreign government support).
