Transcript Associate Professor in Civil Engineering, Albert J. Bonar, 59, died August 1,1978. He had been with the university since 1949. Bonar earned his B.S. and M.S. in civil engineering from Texas A&M in 1949, the same year he became assistant professor at UH. He served as Chairman of Civil Engineering from 1963 to 1965. During the time Bonar was at UH, he originated some 25 courses in civil engineering. He was also a consulting engineer in soil mechanics and foundations and had been a faculty advisor to the student chapter of ASCE and Tau Beta Pi. He was a member of ASCE, TSPE, ASEE, BPOE, and AOPA, and had numerous publications to his name. Bonar was a member of the National Honor Society and was listed in the 1954 "Who's Who in Engineering." Charles F. McElhinney, for whom the Graduate Studies Building on the southwest side of campus was named in 1972, died at Park Plaza Hospital on August 16, 1978. McElhinney, former UH Vice President, had been a teacher at UH since 1934 and became the school's first business manager within 11 years. A Canadian-born American, McElhinney joined UH in the same year it changed status from a Junior College to a full- fledged university. He had held teaching positions in Alabama and Mississippi before he joined UH as Instructor and Assistant to the Research Director for the Houston Public School System. Besides being UH Business Manager, he also served as Acting President during 1953-54. Locally, McElhinney was a member of the Houston Club and the Warwick Club. "Mister Mac," as he was fondly known, was also a member of the Central Association of College and University Business Officers, the National Association of Educational Buyers, the Houston Torch Club, and the Golfcrest Country Club, where he hit a 178-yard hole-in-one in 1963. 385
