October 25, 1933 – November 15, 1984
Peter was a transfer student at Yale, nearly ten years older than his classmates. He was born in Trondheim, Norway, and schooled both there and in Rouen, France. He served in the Norwegian Army before entering the Univ. of British Columbia. From there he transferred to Yale, originally to '65, then to '64 in which he majored in French literature. He was active in Alliance Francaise, and a member of Scroll and Key.
Upon graduating, Peter married Mary Jane Pinney and returned to the Univ. of British Columbia. After earning an M. Ed., he taught and became a school principal in Prince Rupert. By 1973, he quit his education work and returned to UBC as a law student. His last years are lost to us, although it is believed he died in a car accident.
