Biographical history

Theodore Harding Boggs (1882-1969) became the University of British Columbia's first economics professor and head of the Department of Economics, Sociology and Political Science from 1916 to 1930. He was born in southern India, where his parents served as missionaries. He was educated at Yale (M.A. 1906) and Acadia (Ph.D. 1908) before his UBC appointment. He moved to Stanford University in 1930 and remained there until his retirement in 1947. As a Faculty member, he is recognized as one of the pioneers who helped build the University of British Columbia.
