May 21, 2006 - Ed Majden receives the Chant Medal at the RASC General Assembly

On the Victoria Day weekend in May, Ed Majden was awarded the Chant Medal of the RASC, the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada, for his contributions to astronomy.

Ed, please accept heartfelt congratulations from all the members of RASC. The Chant Medal is the big one, and you richly deserve it for all your work on meteor spectra. You have led the way with innovation and perseverance to advance the field, and to show us all that professional-amateur collaboration can contribute to scientific research.

The Chant Medal was established in 1940 by the Society "in appreciation of the great work of the late Prof. C.A. Chant in furthering the interests of astronomy in Canada". This medal is awarded to an amateur astronomer resident in Canada "on the basis of the value of the work carried out in astronomy and closely allied fields of the original investigation."
