Read some classics
Two new publications from the Dept. of Classical, Near Eastern
and Religious Studies offer a glimpse into the study of Greek and
Roman antiquities during UBC's first six decades.
Classical Studies at the University of British Columbia 1915-1975
is a brief history of Classics on campus told with the aid of memoirs
from five generations of alumni.
Homer Armstrong Thompson (1906-2000) and the University of
British Columbia is both a tribute to one of this century's
foremost classical archaeologists and an account of the department
at UBC in the 1920s. Thompson earned two degrees from the university
between 1921 an 1927.
Both publications were authored by longtime Classics Dept. Prof.
Robert B. Todd.
To inquire about obtaining a copy of either publication, contact
the department at 604-822-2515.
