Feb 11, 2004 - Recollections of a Canadian Astronomer - Don
Don Morton retired in 2000 as Director General of the Herzberg Institute of
Astrophysics of the NRC. Born in Kapuskasing Ontario in 1933, Don grew up in
Toronto, and joined the RASC in 1952! As a professional astronomer he has
worked in the United States, Australia and Canada making observations from
space and from the ground, developing instrumentation and managing research
organizations. Following his retirement in 2001 from Canada's National
Research Council, he has continued with astronomical research as well as his
long-time hobbies of mountaineering and model building.
Interesting slides on a life
dedicated to astronomy.
