A Second Degree after 48 years

Two years before obtaining my first degree in Architecture, I began a research career at NRC Canada; this lasted 20 years at NRCC before I moved to the USA to begin a consulting career, mostly as an Independent Consultant in Building Use and Safety. In July 2017, a second degree was conferred, not by UBC, but by the U. of Greenwich, an HonDSc, based on 50 years (beginning before my UBC graduation) of worldwide accomplishments in my field of building use and safety. My work continues at age 74.
