As it happens, Norman Bowen was my great uncle. You mention that his wife, Mary Lamont, was a medical student in Boston. She studied there, but was actually a Canadian as well, from Prince Edward Island.

This is a great site which I will use more often but right now I trying to see if you have any scientists listed that are of African Descent for African Heritage month. [Editor: we do. Constantine Campbell]

Excellent way to classify information about the people you research about. I like how you put the important things down the side. It was really easy to find things I needed to find. Especially the acomplishments! KEEP UP THE GREAT WORK!

I discovered your site this morning and congratulate you on the effort put into bringing all this information together, especially the info on Canadian scientists.

I would like to see Dr Gail Anderson included as a profiled Canadian scientist. She was recently featured in TIME magazine and is the top forensic entomologist in North America. She is the favorite example for an innovative women in science that we use to inspire girls (and boys) at our science camps.

Dr. Calvin B. Harley is a Canadian, was educated in Canada, and was a Professor of Biochemistry in Canada when he developed his exciting hypothesis of the telomere "clock" that is involved in the aging process. He is now the Chief Scientific Officer at Geron Corp. (Menlo Park, CA) that is the "legal guardian" of Dolly the sheep.

I think this sight is cool. It has lots of information. I can't believe Sid altman won the nobel prize.

Thank you and your organization for honoring the memory of Dr. Fry. The link you provided worked perfectly. And, I found your website most impressive. Bookmarked it, and will explore it more thoroughly when I have

I wanted to say what a great job I think you have done. My wonderful grandfather is Dr. William Ricker, and I think that it is great that he has gotten such recognition. Even though he is not a computer person himself I know that he would be honoured to know that so many people appreciate his work. Many thanks!
Roberta Cross, Canadian Consul and Trade Commissioner, Barcelona, Spain on June 21, 2001
Thank you so much for this. I should tell you that I am from Saskatoon, and Dr. Spinks was one of the reasons why my father left Ontario in 1976 to work in a research facility associated to the U of S. He and his wife Mary were wonderful people who cared for our "transplanted" family and made sure that we felt at home in a new place where my father could dedicate himself to good science. I am pleased to hear that Dr. Spink's part in Dr. Hertzberg becoming Canadian and continuing his work in North America will be recognized on your website.

Thankyou for your answer on the question I asked you on chemical changes and tea. I showed it to my teacher and fellow classmates and they thought it was very imformative. My teacher won the argument for I said that it was a chemical change. I liked the way you explained the reason for the tea because it helped me fully understand why. Thank you again for the help.

I just want to thank you on all the help you gave me. I really appreciate you taking the time to fill this out. It means alot to me. This is more than what I could have asked for.

Thank you for your quick response. The answer to my question told me
why Einstein was such a genius and why I am not. Keep up your excellent work.
Kostas Ioannou on September 12, 1998
You're doing a wonderful job for representing Canadian participation in important science breakthroughs. I would like to thank you for providing information on canadian scientists because I am currently doing a project based on canadian scientists.

Congratulations!!! Your book and Web site are wonderful.

Josh LOVES the Great Canadian Scientists CD, and was thrilled when he got to "University Level" (I don't know if he was on the easy or medium difficulty). Thank you again for it - both Michael and Josh are both enjoying it and it is the only "game" Josh wants to play now.

I am a Grade 9 Career and Personal Planning teacher. I plan to refer my students to this site when they are doing Career Searches, especially the girls. Great stuff. I found your Great Canadian Scientists website through Big Six, a concept which is designed to help teachers and students access information. People (mostly Americans) write into the site and ask for ideas. One of the people requested information about science sites. I followed some of them and came across your site and a Canadian one at that!
