He spoke to the RASC Kingston Centre in November of 2001 on SNO.
I suspect it will be pretty non-technical given the background below:
> The John Austin Society for the history of medicine and related sciences welcomes all members of the Queen's and Kingston community. Named after Lorimer John "Blimey" Austin, who was Professor of Surgery at Queen's from 1926-1945, the purpose of the Society is to promote an interest in the history of medicine, medical science and allied professions by providing opportunities for fellowship and continuing education, and by encouraging and fostering research by its members. To this end, we meet several times a year for presentations by members or guests on topics of medical or scientific interest - broadly interpreted. We hope you will find our slate of speakers and topics interesting and enlightening, and will join us as often as you wish. You may bring guests along as well.
> 2.      Regular Meetings
> a)      Regular meetings shall take place at least four times a year.
> b)      The Society’s tradition has established a format for these meetings. There is a dinner to which the speaker and his/her partner are invited as guests of the Society. The presentation then takes place followed by a question period. This tradition does not preclude other formats.
> c)      Meetings are open to both members and non-members.
