"In collaboration with his colleague Patterson Hume, Ivey helped to steer the direction of physics teaching in a new direction through the use of educational television programs and movies. Their movie Frames of Reference and the tv show The Nature of Things made physics accessible to a wider range of students". Ivey was Principal of New College and Vice-President of the University of Toronto.[1] Ivey remains an important part of his family and is especially revered by his grand daughter.
