Dr. Richard Stace-Smith Lecture Presents Michael Clague (Zoom ONLY)

This year’s Dr Richard Stace-Smith Lecture is about the personal and work story of Vancouver-born Michael Clague, a community work practitioner almost from birth 82 years ago. His story is set amidst the optimism of the mid-twentieth century following World War Two which gave us the opportunity to say “Never again. We can make the world a better place.” Have we progressed? We will hear what the author has learned during his journey, personally, and in his work and invites you to do the same. His last position was as Director of the Carnegie Community Centre in the Downtown Eastside. Michael’s talk is based on his new book “So, How Have I Been Doing at Being Who I Am? At 82, A Life In Progress.”


This annual series is dedicated to the late Dr. Richard Stace-Smith (1924-2017) who served as president for Brock House Society between 1995-1997. A UBC alumnus—he worked at Agriculture Canada and was honoured with the Order of British Columbia. The series began in May 2015, featuring speakers in his field. The series continues to feature relevant topics for our society as a whole.
