Civil Engineering Prof. Emeritus Roy Hooley died
Sept. 3 at University Hospital.

Born in Vancouver, Prof. Hooley graduated from UBC in 1947 and received his PhD
from Stanford University. Returning to UBC in 1952 to teach he helped educate a
large number of the structural engineers currently practising in the province
until his retirement in 1989.

Among the landmark engineering projects in which he was involved are the Port
Mann Bridge and the Mica Creek Dam. In 1987 his contributions to the
development of computer-aided design in Canada were honoured by the Canadian
Society for Civil Engineering.

A scholarship in his name has been established at UBC. Those interested in
contributing are asked to contact the UBC Development Office, 6253 Northwest
