About

Dr. Peter Loeffler began teaching at UBC in 1972 and for thirty years taught theatre history to undergraduate and graduate students. His Introduction to Theatre course inspired first-year students to appreciate the power of theatre and its importance. He was a dedicated mentor for countless students from all specialties within the Department of Theatre. Peter passed away on January 18, 2002, after a short battle with cancer.

Peter was an inspirational figure and in many ways the heart of the department. A champion of the avant-garde and the unusual, he was notorious for “anonymously” funding small student productions, helping to foster in his students a greater understanding of the little miracles involved in making theatre. Peter was a recipient of the Killam Teaching Prize in 2000.
