Time Piece

In the August edition of UBC Reports we ran this 1957 photo, which was taken to promote the campus bowling alley. We asked if any one knew what ever happened to this young pinsetter. One of our readers directed us to Gerry Foran and he told us what he’s been up to since 1957.

“You have found the little pinsetter. I’m sorry that I don’t know what happened to Jan. I met her the day the picture was taken. She chose me to be in the picture, but never explained how I was chosen over the other pinsetters. I attended University Hill High School and graduated in 1961. My father was Chief of the University Fire Department and we lived at the second alarm Fire Hall at 1550 Acadia Road.

My dad was the Chief until he passed away in 1963. I went on to take my CGA diploma and 22 years later became a Trustee in Bankruptcy. Thank you for the information and the reminder that there was a time when I was a ‘little guy’ Gerry Foran.”

Now that we’ve solved that mystery, we have another Time Piece puzzle for you. The headline tells us that Gail and Keith Sandercock were surveying fish in East Pakistan in 1964. Whatever happened to these UBC fisheries experts?
