Name of creator
An ad hoc Steering Committe was set up in November of 1977 to advise on the University of Calgary's future role in the area of aging and gerontology and, under its auspices, a one-day in-house workshop was held in February of 1978. This was to enable faculty members with an interest in this area to exchange information and identify activities and problems which could be pursued within the research, teaching, and service roles of the university. Arising out of the recommendations of the workshop, the former President, Dr. Cochrane, established a President's Committee on Aging and Gerontology in July 1978. The Committee had explicit terms of reference and the following membership: Dr. D. B. Black (Educational Psychology - Chairman; Ms. P. Allen (Executive Director, Kerby Centre); Dr. C. Emes (Physical Education); Mrs. H. McDonald (Past President, Alberta Council on Aging); Dr. G. Rosenberg (Faculty of Medicine); Professor A. E. D. Schonfield (Psychology); Ms. R. Troyer (Student representative); Mr. D. Yule (Faculty of Continuing Education); Dr. W. Zwerman (Sociology). The committee met on four occasions and, on its recommendation, a coordinator was appointed in November 1978 for a ten-month term to: compile a list of all university research, teaching and service programs in the area of aging and geriatrics; to liaise with local committees and groups on behalf of the committee; to act as an information source for the community; and to publish an in-house newsletter. Chairmen of the committee were: Donald B. Black (Educational Psychology) 1979-1980; Lawrence A. Fisher (Faculty of Medicine) 1980-1983; A. E. David Schonfield (Department of Psychology) 1983-1986. No information is available for the President's Committee on Aging and Gerontology after 1986.
