Name of creator
Allan Bishop VanCleave was born August 19, 1910 in Medicine Hat, Alberta. He began his post-secondary education at the University of Saskatchewan, receiving a B.Sc. in 1931 and an M.Sc. in 1933. His post-graduate work was done at McGill, where he earned a Ph.D. in 1935, and at Cambridge, where a second Ph.D. was conferred in 1937. He joined the University of Saskatchewan as assistant professor of chemistry in 1937 and achieved full professor status in 1952. In 1962 Dr. VanCleave was appointed Chair of the Division of Natural Sciences at Regina Campus, where he became Dean of Graduate Studies in 1969. Following his retirement from the University of Regina in 1977, he was named Professor Emeritus. Dr. VanCleave authored nearly fifty scientific papers in physical and surface chemistry. He was also instrumental in introducing a new CHEM Study program into Saskatchewan high schools and training teachers to use this approach, work that was recognized by the Chemical Institute of Canada in 1968 when it presented him with a Chemistry Education Award. Dr. VanCleave was president of the University of Saskatchewan Alumni Association (1949-1951). He was named a Member of the Order of Canada in 1976, and received an honorary doctor of laws from the University of Regina in 1980. Dr. VanCleave and his wife, Dorothy, had two sons and two daughters. He died in April 1992.
