Professor William “Bill” Graham was UTSC's first full-time Philosopher, joining what was then Scarborough College just after its early years in 1966. Teaching at the Scarborough Campus while a doctorate student at the University of Toronto, Prof. Graham was offered a position on the faculty once he successfully completed his degree in 1969. Prof. Graham was active in several campus committees regarding the development and future of the Scarborough campus. He highlights the early vision of Scarborough College as an interdisciplinary and democratic institution that was distinct from the St. George campus that was present in these committees. He also speaks of evolving academic and social climate of the campus, such as his involvement in the beginnings of a humanities program. Prof. Graham retired in 2000 (now Emeritus status), but continues to research and publish.
