Douglas Award 2002

[2002] The A. Vibert Douglas Award is the centre's highest honour and is bestowed upon members who have made a significant contribution to the Kingston Centre or to Astronomy and its sister sciences. This year's recipient has made several very important contributions to our centre ever since joining the centre several years ago. From providing guidance, wisdom and elbow grease for several of our telescope making projects, to making major contributions to our education efforts, this person has been on the front lines of some of our most ambitious adventures. This person has also played a role in centre politics, serving as President and also spending several years as the head of the Amateur Telescope Makers group. Most recently he has shepherded the construction of the Robert Venor Telescope project. From beginner to expert, we have all learned something from this knowledgeable, humble and generous man. It gives me great pleasure to announce the winner of this year's A.V. Douglas Award, and greater pleasure still to claim him as a member of Kingston Centre. He is none other than Douglas Angle.
