Arthur Erickson portrait
In his first year of university, he enlisted in the Canadian Army University Course, UBC, equivalent to the first year in Applied Science. Three weeks before its completion, he transferred to a course of intensive training in the Japanese language, which led to the Canadian Intelligence Corps, and a posting to India, where he was an interpreter and obtained the rank of Captain. After service in Malaysia and the end of the war, he returned to Vancouver and entered the UBC summer session in second year Arts and Science.
