Grant Deachman


Mr. Deachman:

Since he came to Canada from Czechoslovakia in 1938, Mr. Koerner has been collecting master-works to illustrate the achievements of tribal art. These collections altogether will make this museum which is to be constructed on the university campus one of the most outstanding archaeological museums in Canada.
Sir, if time permitted I would describe the impact on the University of British Columbia of a number of national health grants, of grants made by the Fitness and Amateur Sports Council, of grants in the field of architecture made by Central Housing and Mortgage Corporation, and of aid extended by agencies such as the Canada Council which has contributed much to the development of scholars, teachers and people from all walks of life at my university.
