Notice biographique

Dr. George C. Wootton served as principal of Douglas College from its inception in 1969 until 1979. Born in Saskatchewan and raised in British Columbia, Wootton graduated from North Vancouver High School and received his BSc, MASc, and PhD (in metallurgical engineering) from the University of British Columbia. Before his appointment to Douglas College, he worked for the Department of Mines in Ottawa, Atomic Energy Canada in Chalk River, and Seneca College in Toronto where served as Dean of Engineering.

During Wootton's tenure at Douglas College, satellite campuses were added in Delta, Langley, Maple Ridge, Port Moody, Coquitlam, Pitt meadows, and White Rock. His principalship saw the development of career programs in the area of psychiatric nursing, clinical health, child care, and community service work. Other programs initiated during this time were in the fields of criminal justice, women's studies, graphic arts, theatre, and environmental studies.

Wootton left Douglas College in 1979 to become director of the Vancouver Public Library.

Portée et contenu

Series consists of office files, correspondence, and other materials created, received, or collected by Wootton during his tenure as principal. These records relate to the development of academic programming and the early growth of the College, collaborations with other post-secondary institutions, community partnerships, service provision, and general administrative functions. Also included are reports on the state of post-secondary education in B.C. during the 1970s, environmental projects, and organizations like Council of College Principals, of which Wootton was chairman until 1976.

This series contains a diverse mix of records; it provides not only a record of Wootton's work as principal but also the broader context in which Douglas College took shape.
