the late Jack Shadbolt, attended Victoria College starting in 1925.
DID YOU NOW THAT THE WOMAN WHO WARNED THE WORLD about the dangers of the drug thalidomide attended Victoria College when it was in Craigdarroch Castle? Or that UVic’s predecessor also had among its students two young men who would become known worldwide for their unique artistic visions? Dr. Frances Kelsey, Bill Reid and Jack Shadbolt all share that distinction and they are among many of the VC alumni featured in a new Web site at www.alumni.uvic.ca/vcccaa. It’s a project of the members of the Victoria College Craigdarroch Castle Alumni Association, who also share the college’s rich history at a permanent display that you can visit at Craigdarroch Castle.
