60 years after their graduation from UBC’s Department of Mechanical Engineering, a group of former classmates came back to UBC. The class of 1950 went on a tour of the mechanical engineering buildings and had lunch at the Sage Bistro.
There were lots of stories to tell and news to catch up on; Arthur Whistler reminisced:
“At one time, when I was at Shellburn Refinery in Burnaby , Dave Frances was at Shell Refinery in Montreal and Lawrence Hughes was at the Shell Office in Vancouver . We did not know that we were working at Shell. I always remember a Christmas party that was held at the Refinery for the families and model Oil Tank Trucks were given to the children. They were soon recalled when it was noticed that they were marked.
