Biographical history

William Gaddes joined the faculty at Victoria College in 1946 to teach psychology. He was head of the department at Victoria College from 1958-1963, and head of the department at the University of Victoria from 1963-1967; he specialized in neuropsychology. Because of Gaddes work with neurologically impaired children, he was invited to be a founding member of the Board of the Cedar Lodge Society. The Society, established in 1969, managed the Cedar Lodge School, a small residential school in Cobble Hill , designed to help children with behaviour and learning problems. For the first several years of the school, Gaddes visited each week to do tests and confer with teachers and child care workers. For many years, classes in psychology and special education made field trips to the school from UVic and UBC. In 1978, Skeleem Village was built on the south side of the property and the Society operated the school for children with neurological problems, and Skeeleem Village for adults. The school was closed by the provincial government in 1985 and the Village in 1986. Gaddes retired from UVic in 1978.
