Rate this:
The story of Walter Gage's five decades as a professor, dean, and president of the University of British Columbia. Walter Gage helped thousands of students achieve their goals, through counselling them on their education, assisting them with bursaries and scholarships, or by emptying his pockets for a student in need. He was known for his wit and sense of humour, his remarkable memory for names, and for his bombastic classroom style that often left him standing at the blackboard in a cloud of chalk dust. The biography includes stories from Walter Gage's former students and colleagues, and is illustrated with more than one hundred photographs, letters, and documents.
