 McMaster Alumni Association - Sloane
At that time McMaster had no full-fledged engineering program of its own but did have a "treaty" with Queen's whereby its qualifying students would be admitted to the second year of the latter's Faculty of Applied Science.
McMaster was his first stop after high school just as it had been his sister Jeannette's the year before.
He satisfactorily finished the year with a mixture of seconds and thirds and in September 1939 was duly admitted to the Queen's program.

 Globalization:
Gary Madison's paper, "Globalization: Challenges and Opportunities" is the first in a series of working papers to be circulated by McMaster University's new Institute on Globalization and the Human Condition, directed by Dr. William Coleman of McMaster's Department of Political Science.
The working papers series will circulate papers by members of the Institute as well as other faculty members and invited graduate students at McMaster University working on the theme of globalization.
Globalization may have as its effect a certain leveling of cultural differences and, owing to the consumerism it promotes, may make for increasing similarity in lifestyles around the world, but it is difficult to see how this consequence of globalization may not actually have decidedly beneficial effects.

 Overview of the Faculty
The development of health professional education at McMaster University began in 1946 when the School of Nursing was established in the University's Faculty of Science.
Further development occurred in the mid-1960s when, persuaded by then University President Harry Thode's long-standing vision that McMaster should start a new kind of medical school and by the enthusiastic support of the Hamilton community, the Ontario Government awarded a medical education program to McMaster.
Under the leadership of founding Dean John Evans, a group of reform-minded educators began developing an undergraduate medical program and a philosophy of health sciences education that departed radically from the prevailing North American norm.

 Spotlight on Science
After Dr. Brockhouse joined McMaster in 1962, his presence attracted promising young scientists to the faculty and to the classroom, including Dr. Gaulin, who completed his doctoral degree at McMaster in 1986.
Half a century ago, he used the triple-axis spectrometer and invented a definitive method for observing the forces that govern the atomic and magnetic structure of matter, developments that pervade all modern textbooks on the solid-state physics.
The namesake chair, substantially funded by Atomic Energy Canada Limited and the Ontario Research and Development Challenge Fund, pays tribute to Dr. Brockhouse's pioneering work in neutron-scattering.

Ehrenberg, a former Cornell vice president, said, "The evidence is that universities are increasingly paying for science research out of their own pockets." While the federal government, which benefits from science research, once fully supported the administrative and infrastructure costs of research on campuses across the country, that's no longer the case, he noted.
At a lunch for participants May 21 in 217 Ives Hall, Charlotte Kuh of the National Research Council will talk about the NRC's assessment of doctoral programs.

 SAFETY OF BISMUTH BULLETS QUESTIONED MAY NOT BE NON-TOXIC
Originally a constituent college of the Faculty of Arts and Science, the University of Toronto at Scarborough is situated on a park-like campus at the eastern edge of the city.
Gough, along with graduate student Ruwan Jayasinghe and colleagues from McMaster and Queen's universities and the University of Waterloo, examined the background levels of bismuth and lead in the muscle and liver tissues of mallard ducks, northern pintails, green-winged teals, Canada geese and snow geese.
Bismuth bullets, which became the primary form of bullets sold in Canada after lead shot was incrementally banned for environmental reasons between 1991 and 1999, may not be as non-toxic as originally thought, according to a new study.
