A. Richard (Dick) King (1919-x years) [can’t find obit] was an Associate Professor in UVic’s Faculty of Education who worked at UVic from 1969 to his retirement in 1985. He was born in Seattle, Washington and became a Canadian citizen in 1975. He was a member of the Department of Communication & Social Foundation when the Faculty of Education was departmentalized.

King served in World War Two in the US Merchant Marine and Marine Corps.

Moving back to Washington State in the mid-50s, he taught and took graduate courses before undertaking a PhD program at Stanford University in education and cultural anthropology.

His PhD dissertation in Comparative Education was about the school year 1962-1963 he taught grade four at the Carcross Indian Residential School in Carcross, Yukon. “The School at Mopass” is an abridged version of his “A Case study of a Yukon Indian Residential School” dissertation and is available for use in our reading room. The name “Mopass” was intended to anonymize the Carcross Residential School.

Between finishing his dissertation and working at UVic, King was an associate professor of the International Service of the Teachers College, Columbia University, which had a contract with the United States Agency for International Development to assist with the development of a Faculty of Education at Kabul University, Afghanistan.

Upon arrival he was the co-ordinator for the Faculty of Education project and in 1966 was appointed as the associate chief of party until the end of the tour, and was briefly acting chief of party in early 1968. Following his time in Afghanistan, in 1968-1969 he was Director of International Education at Florida State University in Tallahassee.

At UVic, he was appointed as Associate Professor and achieved tenure in 1971. He served as Assistant Dean of Education in 1972-73, and throughout the 1970s and 80s on a number of Faculty of Education committees and Presidential Advisory committees.
