Bill Tamblyn believed that university buildings were important, but they tended
to obscure the more important, and often intangible, human values a university
brings to an area. These and other reflections by Lakehead’s first president,
were delivered by his son David Tamblyn (BA’84, HBA’86) when the University
community gathered last June to rename and rededicate the Centennial Building.
Bill Tamblyn served as President from 1965 to 1972.
