While going through some old albums we came across a report on Arts 1 from 1975. So, a forty year old report on a new offering at the post-secondary institution that was then called Malaspina College (since it has evolved into its current status as Vancouver Island University).
It’s an interesting read. Partly because of the tone but more importantly what it suggests about the students and their response to this interdisciplinary course of study.
The three instructors involved were Diane Einblau, Sociology; Morris Donaldson, English; and Bob Lane, Philosophy (a picture of young Lane on the left).
