Biographical history

Joseph Badenoch Clearihue was born in Victoria and attended Boys' Central School and Victoria High School before enrolling at Victoria College (graduated in 1903), McGill University and Oxford University. He enjoyed a long career as a student, a soldier in the Fifth Canadian Field Artillery Unit in World War I, a Liberal MLA and Victoria alderman, and as a lawyer before being appointed a county court judge in 1952. He was Chair of the Victoria College Council (1947-63), and guided the College to university status. In January 1962, Clearihue turned the first sod at the construction site of the Clearihue Building, which was the first building on the Gordon head campus. Clearihue was also the first Chancellor of the University of Victoria, and Chair of the Board of Governors (1963-66).
