I was saddened to hear that Ed had passed away. He had been Officer in Charge at the Ionosphere Station at the South Camp, Resolute Bay and, of course, was one of those people featured in the famous 1955 National Geographic article. Ed was well known in the Monitoring Service and at Radio Regulations Headquarters in the years prior to his retirement around 1980. In more recent years he had joined us on occasion at the coffee sessions of meteorological and radio people who had been associated with the Joint Arctic Weather Stations, of which Resolute was one. Our condolences on your loss.
