Biographical history

Frederick H. Soward was born in Minden, Ontario and educated at the University of Toronto (B.A., 1921) and Oxford University (B.Litt., 1922). In 1922, he joined Mack Eastman and Walter N. Sage in the Dept. of History at UBCʹs Fairview campus. Sowardʹs career at the university spanned some forty‐two years. Soward developed a keen interest in studying foreign relations and international affairs. This expertise was recognized by the Dept. of External Affairs which called him to Ottawa in 1941 to serve as a special assistant for three years. Upon his return to UBC Soward was appointed as director of the International Studies program. During his career at UBC, Soward served as head of the Dept. of History (1953‐1963) and Associate Dean and later Dean of Graduate Studies (1962‐1964). He retired from the university in 1964 and received honorary degrees from Carleton University (1962) and UBC (1964). Sowardʹs contribution to promoting the understanding of international affairs went beyond the university classrooms through his lectures across the province and particularly his annual review of world events at the Vancouver Institute Lectures.
