  • Notes 
    • From a newspaper clipping: Former Montrealer and McGill graduate, Douglas Argyle Campbell was here to attend the dinner given by Mr. and Mrs. Barber Tuesday night at the Mount Royal Club to celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary. 

      Douglas, who received his MBA from Harvard University, pursued further studies at Columbia University and lives in Holmsby Hills, Bel Air, Calif., is in the investment banking business. "I've many Montreal clients," he said.  He was filled with current news of his sister who will be remembered by many during the years she lived in Montreal. 

      Helen, who married Prof. Nicholas Polunin, at the time a McGill professor, lives with him in Geneva, Switzerland. Dr. Polunin, who receeived an OBE last year for his work in Environment Conservation, sponsored the first international environmental conference which was held in 1971 in Helsinki, Finland, and the 1974 one in Reyjavik, Iceland. 

      "One of their sons won a scholarship to Eton and then to Christ Church, Oxford. The other boy, and Etonian and Oxford graduate, is doing post-graduate work at Cambridge.  Their daughter, April, who attended Heathfield School at Ascot, became a Buddhist and now lives in Madras, India," Douglas said.
