December 26 Ida Green, the widow of Dr. Cecil Green, died in Vancouver. She met Cecil Green in 1923, while he was working on his master's thesis at the General Electric Research Center in Schenectady, New York. They were married 60 years until Ida's death. (Cecil Green would die in 2003, aged 102.) Mrs. Green bequeathed nearly $3 million to UBC for the maintenance and upgrading of Cecil Green Park and for academic purposes such as the Cecil and Ida Green lecture series.
