Historical Meteorological Photos - Credits

The sources of the many photos in this collection are mostly the members of the courses themselves, and we have decided for now not to list the individual contributers.  Other photos of events and offices have again been contributed by people who are in the photos.

In the event of a specific request for credit or photo rights ownership, we will add "© plus the name" below the photo.

Contributers of large collections include:


Morley Thomas, Canadian Weather Service Archivist  

Susan Vivian from DND's School of Meteorology in Winnipeg  

Paul Kowal, long-time Commandant of the CF School of Meteorology, Winnipeg  

Anne O'Toole and Joe Shaykewich, formerly from MSC Training Branch

Some photos are copies of those originally published in the MSC employee magazine Zephyr and / or the DOT employee magazine On the DOT.

Most of the scanning and retyping of the names has been done by Bob Jones, CMOS Archivist and former Webmaster.
