Dates of existence



The 1965 Conference of Learned Societies was held at UBC. The UBC Committee of Arrangements was responsible arranging conference facilities, accommodation, publicity, etc.
From <cite>The Canadian Encyclopedia</cite>: "The Learned Societies are the large group of Canadian scholarly organizations that hold conferences annually from late May to mid-June at a different university location each year. Society members come not only to hear and discuss scholarly papers on the latest work in their fields, but also to renew contacts and share common concerns. The gathering of these associations in one place over one period is distinctively Canadian and owes more to practical evolution than to planning power. Selecting one site with suitable university accommodation was an answer to Canadian distance that allowed scholars more economical joint arrangements, let them attend meetings of societies besides their own, and encouraged them to visit varied geographical areas".
