In 1995, Terry Spurgeon was an Honours student in Archaeology at SFU, and past president of the Archaeological Society of British Columbia. He interviewed Roy Carlson on the occasion of Dr. Carlson's retirement from SFU that year. Dr. Carlson was a charter faculty member in the Department of Political Science, Sociology and Anthropology. He played a pivotal role in establishing a separate Department of Archaeology.
