The Role and Viewpoint of the Chemical Industry and Its Institute on Education and Research & Development

CIM Bulletin, 1965

W. G. Forbes Chairman, Chemical Education Div., The Chemical Institute of Canada

Some 20 years ago, upon finishing second year at the University of Manitoba, I was faced with the choice of whether I wanted to be a geologist or a chemist. Accordingly, I sought out Professor Brownell, Head of the Department of Geology, to ask him what a geologist did. His reply contained the statement that following graduation one went out into the field in northern Canada for 5 to 15 years to reduce to practice what had been learned at university.
