UBC honours sterling silver teachers, scholars

Veteran faculty share a strong sense of community Stories

by Don Wells

A total of 49 faculty will be inducted into UBC's Quarter Century Club tonight at the University Centre in recognition of 25 years of academic service to UBC and its students.

When they arrived on Point Grey in 1976, Paul McCartney and his new band Wings were touring Yugoslavia and Nadia Comaneci had just won three gold medals at the Montreal Olympics. In California, NASA unveiled the space shuttle Enterprise and Viking 2 landed on the planet Mars.
