Dates of existence
Duncan Blewett received his B.A. and M.A. from the University of British Columbia in 1947 and 1950 respectively. He then went to England where he completed his Ph.D. at the University of London under Hans Eysenk in 1953. After gaining clinical experience in Great Britain, Dr. Blewett came to Saskatchewan in 1954 to assume the position of Supervising Psychologist for the Psychiatric Service Branch of the provincial Department of Health. In 1961 he was hired by the University of Saskatchewan Regina Campus to develop the Department of Psychology. His major areas of research and publication were psychedelics and psychotronics, and he was heavily involved in controversial LSD research undertaken in Saskatchewan during the 1950s and 1960s. Dr. Blewett remained with the University of Regina until his retirement in 1986, when he was named Professor Emeritus, and went to live in Mexico. He and his wife, June, now reside on Gabriola Island, British Columbia.
