R. W. "Bob" McQueen Economics Award

Bob McQueen joined Victoria College as its chief accountant in 1962, and in 1963 became UVic's first Bursar. He was appointed UVic's vice president of finance and chief financial officer in the early 1980s and served there until his retirement in 1992. Mr. McQueen also served as instructor to UVic's Commerce 151 course for 17 years, understanding first-hand the pressures facing Canadian post-secondary institutions, both from an administrative perspective and a scholastic one. In 1997 he was recognized with a lecture theatre in the then newly constructed Business and Economics Building on campus which was named in honour of himself and his good friend Trevor Matthews.
