SHAKESPEARE EXHIBIT FEATURES RARE TEXTS

A collection of rare Shakespeare texts is now on display in The Gallery off the Meeting Place. The exhibit is on loan to Scarborough College from the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, D.C., which houses the great- est collection of Shakespearean material in the world.

The exhibition, made possible through a grant from the Victoria and Grey Trust, comes to Toronto after three weeks in Stratford where it was produced by the College as an adjunct to the summer seminars on Shakespeare. This is the first time the exhibition has ever travel- led outside the United States.

University of Toronto

September 10, 1980

The display includes two original quartos: A Midsummer Night’s Dream (1619) and the Merry Wives of Windsor (1616), as well as a collotype fascimile of the First Quarto of Ti- tus Andronicus which dates back to 1594, the earliest of Shakespeare’s plays to be published.

Also on display are the first four folios of Shakespeare’s collected works, all printed in the 17th Century. The First Folio was pub- lished in 1623, seven years after Shakespeare's death. The quartos and folios, along with photographic material and other Shake- spearean memorabilia, are arranged for con- venient viewing in six plexiglas display cases.

Visitors will notice a number of improve- ments which have been made over the sum- mer to The Gallery. Display surface has been nearly doubled by the installation of panels in the former window areas. As well, track lighting has been installed to spotlight exhibi- ted material at the appropriate foot candle power stipulated by the museums and gal- leries across North America. Terry Nicholson, Chairman of the Art Committee, is respon- sible for instigating these much-needed im- provements.

The Shakespeare Exhibition is open to the public and can be viewed until Monday, September 22. Hours are 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Fridays, and Sundays from 2 to 5 p.m.

FACULTY ACTIVITIES

Mathematics Professor J. Steven Halperin was invited to lecture at a Math Colloquium held at the University of IIlinois last April on “Geometric Applications of Minimal Mo- dels’’. He also spoke on ‘Spaces of Type F’’ at the American Mathematics Society Meeting held at the University of Indiana.

From June 17 to July 8, Dr. Y. Felix of the Universite de Louvain la Neuve, Belgique, came to work with Professor Halperin at the Scarborough Campus.

Over the past year, Anthropologist Michael Lambek has given papers on three different occasions. In March, he spoke on ‘‘Life Texts: In Pursuit of the Self in Anthropology and in Mayotte’ at the annual meeting of the Cana- dian Ethnological Society in Montreal, and al- sO gave a paper at McGill University on “Fieldwork on Trance’. Last November, Pro- fessor Lambek attended the annual meeting of the American Anthropological Association in Cincinnati and presented a paper entitled “Rationality and the Mystification of Per-

formativeness’”’.

PHOTO |I.D. CARDS RETURN

Old-timers at the College remember the 1970’s when students, staff, and faculty at the College had colour photo |.D. cards that permitted access to the commuter buses in use at that time. Even earlier the University as a whole issued library cards bearing photo- graphs. These cards disappeared with the de- mise of the commuter buses and changes in library procedures, but are being revived this year for all students enrolling at the College for the first time. The purpose of the cards is simple to provide readily verifiable proof that one is a student at the College. It is hoped that these cards, which will be required for admission to examination rooms in first year courses, will eliminate the increasingly vexing problem of verification of identifica- tion of individuals writing examinations. Other areas where the cards may be useful are in controlling access to the library, recrea- tional facilities, computer centre, and other areas. In future years it is hoped to provide all students with cards, and staff and faculty may

also find them useful. T. T. Tidwell

LIBRARY STAFF CHANGES

Ruth Farrow left her position as Coordinator of Public Services in the College Library at the end of June. She joined us as a reference librarian in October 1971, having worked pre- viously in the Undergraduate library and the Botany library at McGill University.

Over the years she has done much to develop the science collection, organize the map col- lection and arrange orientation programmes for the students. Her friendliness, humour and ability to weather any storm with a smile have been much appreciated. These qualities will no doubt stand her in good stead when she moves to her retirement retreat, an island somewhere West of Vancouver.

Marla Miller has joined us as a reference libra- rian. She is a graduate of the University of Al- berta in Classics and took her MLS at the Uni- versity of Toronto. She has been working for the past two years at the Robarts Library in the Government Publications and Reference Department and has given orientation tours and seminars.

In other organizational changes, Patricia Ya- mamoto becomes Coordinator of Public Ser- vices and Michele Wiederkehr becomes Co- ordinator of Technical Services and Collection Development.

COMMUNITY FUND RAISING CAMPAIGN FOR LIBRARY LAUNCHED

Plans for a capital fund-raising campaign to provide the balance of funds needed to build the new library facilities at Scarborough Col- lege were unveiled at a press conference at Scarborough Civic Centre on Friday, Septem- ber 12.

Acting Principal S. John Colman reviewed the history of the library project and announced that $2.4 million toward a project estimated to cost $2.7 million has already been secured. The campaign goal is thus to raise the final $300,000, primarily from the Scarborough community.

Mayor Gus Harris of Scarborough, speaking at the conference, expressed the pride the muni- Cipality feels in having the College located in the Borough of Scarborough. He pointed out that within the next 10 to 15 years the popu- lation of Scarborough is expected to exceed that of the City of Toronto. Thus the new li- brary facilities are a most necessary invest- ment in the future.

Co-Chairmen of the campaign are Thos. P. Abel, a Scarborough resident and Administra- tive Partner with Clarkson Gordon Company in Scarborough, and St. Clair Balfour, Chair- man of Southam Press. Mr. Abel was intro- duced by the Acting Principal who remarked that Mr. Abel was most aptly named.

In outlining the elements of the campaign, Mr. Abel mentioned the funds being solicited from the community represent 10% of the needed amount, and he hoped the monies al-

University of Toronto

September 17, 1980

ready pledged by the students themselves, a total of $400,000, ‘‘will spur us on.”

The campaign will have three main thrusts: a canvas of the business community to begin in mid-October, a variety of cultural and recrea- tional activities and events, and a project de- signed to attract individual support.

A cheque and pledge to kick off the campaign were presented by M.P. Gordon Gilchrist of Scarborough East, who affirmed his support most dramatically!

Mrs. Florence Cruickshank, formerly Chair- man of the Scarborough Public Library Board and also a member of the Scarborough Col- lege Associates, also spoke of the urgent need for new facilities. ‘‘Nowhere have | seen a li- brary operating under such difficult circum- stances as at Scarborough College,”’ she said.

While the Scarborough College Associates is the main organizing body of the campaign, some of the other groups which are helping with activities and events are the University Women’s Club of Scarborough, the East and West Highland Creek Community Association and the Scarborough College Athletic Asso- ciation.

In seeking the support of the Scarborough community for the new library, the College recognizes that more of its enrolling students come from the Scarborough area than any other single area, that a substantial number of its alumni live and work in Scarborough, and that the College is an institution representing Scarborough to thousands of high school students across the province and elsewhere.

RAPOPORT APPOINTED PROFESSOR EMERITUS

Professor Anatol Rapoport, eminent psycho- logist, mathematician and one-time concert pianist, has recently been appointed Professor Emeritus of the University of Toronto.

Professor Rapoport is well known and remem- bered at Scarborough College. His first intro- duction to the campus was back in 1970 when he came to the college as a professor of Mathematics. His multi-faceted academic career has included teaching Psychology in the Faculty of Arts and Science at the Univer- sity as well as a cross appointment in Socio- logy at the Scarborough Campus. He still re- turns to Scarborough each summer to carry on his teaching in the Social Sciences. His ex- pertise in all fields of Social Science has been internationally acclaimed and in particular his conception of Two Person Game Theory is considered a major contribution to science.

Professor Rapoport was originally a student of music, and spent a number of years as a concert pianist before turning to a career as a scientist. While a member of the Scarborough faculty, he gave concerts at the College which are still memorable.

Following his retirement from the University of Toronto in 1979, he was appointed to the prestigious position of Director, Institute of Advanced Studies in Vienna, Austria. His honorary awards include Doctor of Humane Letters, University of Western Michigan, and Honorary Fellow of New College, University of Toronto.

GOVERNING COUNCIL APPOINTMENTS

Personnel Officer June Hope has been re- appointed to the Campus and Community Af- fairs Committee of the University of Toron- to’s Governing Council for another year.

Other members of the Scarborough Campus staff who are serving on committees of Go- verning Council are Professor Arthur N. Sheps, on Academic Affairs, and Professsor Modris Eksteins, on Planning and Resources. Professor W. John Kirkness, Director of the office of Educational Development, who is on leave from the Division of Humanities at Scarborough, is also on the Academic Affairs Committee.

SOCIOLOGIST WINS TEACHING AWARD Scarborough’s Prof. James ‘has a knack for raising the self-esteem of students’

Robert L. (Bob) James, professor of socio- logy, has been awarded the 1980 Teaching Award at Scarborough College. The award recognizes outstanding teaching and is inten- ded as an encouragement to faculty to strive for excellence. Money for the $1,000 award comes from the Scarborough College Stu- dents’ Council and Alumni Association as well as the college itself.

In nominating Professor James, colleagues wrote of his characteristic style of teaching which is particularly effective in the larger lec- ture courses such as Introductory Sociology, the Sociology of the Family, and Deviant Be- haviour. One nominator referred to Professor James as ‘‘a yardstick in measuring the work of others’. He is praised for speaking to his students, however numerous, as persons, with warmth and humour.

Former students wrote to testify to the im- portance of his support at a critical point in their academic lives. In particular, he seems to have a knack for raising the confidence and self-esteem of students beginning undergra- duate or graduate work. ‘‘He made me feel welcome’, and “‘he was always there when | needed him” are typical of students’ com- ments.

Junior colleagues who have worked with him remark on how important he was, and is, as a role model in their development as teachers.

In presenting Professor James as this year’s recipient Principal Joan Foley described him “as a teacher of sociology and teacher of teachers whose influence is wide and deep and lasting’”’.

Professor James received his PhD from the University of Oregon. In 1956 he joined the faculty of the University of Alberta where he remained until 1964 when he joined the fa- culty of U of T in Scarborough, one of the first professors to be appointed.

HELEN PRESSEY APPOINTED CAREER COUNSELLOR

Ms. Helen Pressey has been appointed to the University of Toronto Career Counselling and Placement Centre as Co-ordinator of Career Counselling and Placement Services at Scarbo- rough College.

Ms. Pressey is a graduate of Hunter College in New York City (B.A.) and of the Ontario In- stitute of Studies in Education (M.Ed.)

Ms. Pressey worked as an elementary school teacher both in New York State and in On- tario, and then decided to change careers. After completing her Master’s degree she be- gan work as a Career counsellor with the Jew- ish Vocational Service, doing individual and group career and educational counselling. For the past four years she has also taught a course in Rehabilitation Counselling at Seneca College. In addition, she has participated in teaching another course at George Brown College, ‘‘Motivation: the Turning Point”.

Ms. Pressey is working in the Student Services Office, room S-302.

INTERNSHIP PROGRAM 1980

During the summer twelve interns from Scar- borough high schools spent six weeks involved with teaching and research projects at Scarbo- rough College. This is the second year of the internship program; there were eight interns in 1979.

Projects areas this year included Anthropo- logy, Biology, Chemistry, Economics, English, French, Mathematics/Computer Science, Me- dieval Studies, Sociology, and Sociology/Lin- guistics. Two disciplines used two interns.

Descriptions of the projects were circulated to the Scarborough Board of Education and Car- dinal Newman High School in April, drawing about 60 applications from very high calibre students. As an aside, | learned that three for- mer interns completed grade 13 with averages placing them among the top three students at their high schools.

The following students were interns in 1980; also shown is their high schools: Jamie Brown, Sir Oliver Mowat Michael Dallman, Sir Wilfred Laurier Salwa Azer, West Hill Andrea Glynwilliams, W. A. Porter Chery! Johnstone, Agincourt Irene Bigall, A.S.E. Martin King, Woburn Alan Rosenthal, Cedar Brae Monique Gignac, Sir John A. MacDonald Douglas Hancock, Woburn

Catherine McEwen, Woburn Nancy Quan, Birchmount Park

The objective of the program is to pro- vide opportunities for bright highly moti- vated students at the grade 12 level with the hope that an early exposure to research will stimulate and encourage further study. Once again this year, the Professors interviewing students for positions reported on how im- pressed they were by the students.

Two former interns have enrolled in the Col- lege. While this is very pleasing, it must be seen as a bonus. Most importantly, the pro- gram seems to give prospective university stu- denis a tremendous boost in self-confidence. Comments such as “‘l have a much better idea of what to expect when | attend university.” are typical. From the students’ evaluation and

comments |! also note that all the projects were thought to have provided a much richer experience than the intern had anticipated.

While no decisions have been made regarding 1981, | hope that members of faculty will be able to offer the excellent range of projects that were provided this summer. With this in mind, | should like to thank the 1980 Super- visors, Professors Latta, Boonstra, Parker, R. Brown, Mignault, Keast, Gervers, Lee, Isajiw and Whalen and Ann Verner, Tutor.

FACULTY DINING ROOM AND LOUNGE

It is general knowledge that all College staff who have taken out membership in the Joint Membership Plans are eligible to use the facili- ties of the Faculty Club. What is perhaps not as widely known is that the College’s overall beverage licence has been extended to cover the fourth floor dining room. (The Faculty Lounge is already covered.)

Commencing on September 22, it is proposed to introduce a bar service to provide beer and wine before/with luncheon in the Faculty dining room from 12 noon to 2 p.m. Monday to Friday.

A decision to continue the service beyond a trial period will depend upon the volume of use and, accordingly, the ability of the service to be self-supporting financially.

Official opening of the exhibit takes place at 5 p.m. today when the student artists them- selves will be present to discuss their work. A prize will be presented by the Art Committee to the student whose work is considered to be the most outstanding.

The calibre of work produced during the summer session has been described by one of the fine arts staff members as excellent, with painting being particularly strong. Much of the art is abstract rather than figuratively orien- ted. With the increased wall space available in The Gallery, the Art Committee has been able to choose a good number for showing.

Most of the art on display will be available for sale. Call Janis Hoogstraten or Don Holman if you would like to become the owner of any of these fine etchings or paintings.

MARG WOOD RECIPIENT OF D. R. CAMPBELL AWARD

On a festive evening last May, Marg Wood at- tended her retirement party and discovered she was the recipient of the D. R. Campbell Merit Award for 1980.

Mrs. Wood began her employment with the College in 1966 as a secretary in the Humani- ties wing. She swiftly moved to secretary to Acting Divisional Chairman John Warden and, subsequently, to Divisional Chairman Peter Salus. From there she moved to the Associate Dean and Registrar’s Office as Administrative Assistant. In that capacity, she served Profes- sors Jim King, Peter Salus, and John Warden.

Letters in support of Mrs. Wood’s nomination for the award were received from faculty, staff, students and alumni. Typical of their comments were that she is ‘’one of those col- leagues who characteristically sees her rights as privileges, and who includes in her duties not merely what is recorded in the job de- scription, but anything else that needs to be done.”

One aspect of the job in the Associate Dean’s Office which Mrs. Wood handled with exemp- lary tact related to petitions and appeals re- sulting from academic offenses. Students were well served by her knowledge of and respect for the procedures.

Since her retirement, Mrs. Wood has spent a month travelling in Europe with her husband who will retire from his job at Christmas. An avid traveller, Mrs. Wood looks forward to many unexplored roads and craft shops en route to a possible future home in Victoria, B.C.

Assistant Registrar Marie Gerrard has com- posed an epic poem covering the highlights of Mrs. Wood’s years at the College. Space limitations permit publishing only the fol- lowing brief excerpt:

“It would seem that, around Marg, was

thrown a cordon:

Warden, Salus, King, Salus,Warden.

Fourteen years and she can take no more. So across the Atlantic, she’s about to soar. She better remember her brolly and Mac. And to give my regards to Dot and Jack .”

FACULTY ACTIVITIES

Professor A. J. Kresge recently gave the open- ing plenary lecture at the Fifth Conference on Physical Organic Chemistry sponsored by the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry, which was held at the University of California at Santa Cruz.

Nemo me impune lacessit.

From beside Charles River’s waters,

Cross the river from Old Harvard, f

Rises now a screech of anguish, Echoes far a shriek of terror.

“Who is grappling with my verses? Who is treading on my metrics?”’ From the creekbed comes no answer. From the College no confession. Only in the Northern twilight, Lingers none to hear my query;

Yet | seem to hear a whisper

“Not to worry,” that’s the answer.

WORD OF WARNING

Two staff members have had their purses stolen within the past few days.

As prevention seems to be the only cure for this recurring problem, everyone is advised to keep handbags and other valuables well out of sight and the reach of nimble fingered thieves who unfortunately always seem to be in our midst.

PROMOTIONS TO PROFESSOR IN THE DIVISION OF HUMANITIES

Modris Eksteins, History, received his B.A. from Toronto in 1965 and went to Oxford as a Rhodes Scholar. In 1967 he received the. B.Phil., and in 1970 the D. Phil., from Oxford. He joined the Divi- sion of Humanities in 1970.

Modris is at work on a book about the relationship of culture and © barbarism in the twentieth century. His previous publications in- clude Theodor Heuss und die Weimarer Republik (1969), and The s Limits of Reason: The German Democratic Press and the Collapse of the Weimar Democracy (1975). (A reviewer of the latter called it a “judicious and careful study . .. presented with precision and often with eloquence’’; and such ascriptions will be no surprise to students and colleagues who know the man apart from his writings.)

Professor Eksteins is Senior Fellow in International Relations at Trinity College, and the chairman of the European Studies Com- mittee of the Centre for International Studies. He is a member of the Planning and Resources Committee of the Governing Council and Discipline Representative for History in the Division of Hu- manities. It is not known whether these activities contribute more to his understanding of culture or of barbarism.

John N. Grant, Classics, received the Ph.D. from the University of St. Andrews in 1971 after undergraduate degrees at the University of Edinburgh and Emmanuel College, Cambridge. He taught at the University of Manitoba before coming to Scarborough College in 1967.

Professor Grant works in Latin literature, especially Roman Co- medy. His many publications, in most of the leading classical jour- nals, include work on Vergil, Propertius, Horace and Plautus as well ason Terence, the author to which he has devoted much of his research. In recent years he has been examining many of the hun- dreds of manuscripts of Terence which have survived, and he is currently completing a monograph on the history of the transmis- sion of the text in late antiquity and the Carolingian period. Also, (when he is not playing bridge or arranging for bridge to be ~ played) he is working on a new critical edition of Terence’s plays.

John has served on many committees in the College, and was As- sociate Chairman of the Division of Humanities from 1978 to 1980. He is also Associate Editor of Phoenix, the Journal of the Classical Association of Canada.

Readers of the Bu//etin will be interested in the promotion to Pro- fessor of Peter Richardson. The Chairman of the Division of Hu- manities from 1974 to 1978, and now Principal of University Col- lege, Peter retains a cross-appointment to the Division of Humani- ties. He has taught Humanities courses in the area of Christian ori- gins, and shared HUMB20Y, Primitive Christian Literature and Myth, with Eleanor Irwin.

Peter Richardson is the author of /srae/ in the Apostolic Church (Cambridge, 1969), and Paul’s Ethic of Freedom (Westminster, 1979). His scholarly work centres on Paul’s thought, especially in relation to its Jewish and Greco-Roman environment. This year he is on research leave, writing among other things a commentary on | Corinthians.

“SHOW-ME” LEARNING: THE 1980 STRATFORD SEMINARS

D iatistics are interesting, but inanimate: some ninety students from across the conti- nent Los Angeles, Chicago, Washington, Vic- toria, Edmonton, et cetera, and many from Ontario; a half dozen of the University of Toronto’s best Shakespeare scholars Frye, Hoeniger, Patrick, Zitner, Leggatt and Hamel; some excellent Shakespeare productions; and twelve senior members of the Festival Hutt, Kareda, Conolly, Tandy, Pennell, Phillips and so forth.

For myself the result was an enthralling three week feast for mind and imagination.

Each winter I teach Twelfth Night. I know the text, I read the critics, I try to animate the
