The following is the citation read by Leo Enright at the time of the presentation of the award by our Honorary President David Levy to Christine on October 1, 1993:

[1993] This year's winner of the Dr. A. Vibert Douglas Award is a long-time member of the Royal Astronomical Society of Canada, and has been a member of both the Edmonton and Kingston Centres. She has brought a wealth of enthusiasm and new ideas to the office of President of the Kingston Centre. We have had our membership numbers grow to a figure never-before-seen in the thirty-two year history of our Centre. She has arranged for a stunning variety of guest speakers for our meetings, and has seen that our programs have included topics of interest for the veteran and neophyte, for young and old, for the generalist and the specialist, for the enthusiastic deep-sky observer as well as the sedentary armchair astronomer. For the first time in the Centre's history, a committee sparked to action by the President is considering hosting a General Assembly of the Society. Numerous other ideas for promoting astronomy are being seriously worked on. Little wonder then that, on behalf of the Kingston Centre, we are proud to present our Centre's major award, the Dr. A. Vibert Douglas Award, to our President, Christine Kulyk.
