Old CM Stud Books Now On-Line

David Smith has uploaded CM "Stud Book" Photos in colour. These particular books were produced while we were in the Pearson Building. Unfortunately, the book containing photos from T to Z has been irretrievably lost in the Department but for those who joined prior to 1971, chances are their photos will be in the CM photo album of black and white photos of this era.

These photos are in colour and add a different dimension to our smiling (and youthful) visages. The individual pages were scanned and as such includes some data and up to four photos. All are sure to bring a smile to many faces and reminders of those CM colleagues who have passed on. Amongst this "field of daisies" is one weed. An EL colleague has somehow been included in our stud book. When you come to this photo, you will probably agree that this person spent more time in the Comcentre than any other EL and as such, I think my CM colleagues will agree that we must bestow honourary CM membership to our one and only Lou Bèrubè. Instead of his having to determine why the OCAMS hard disk drives would jump across the floor, he now turns car mirror's into works of art!

All photos are alphabetized by the LAST name in this album viz the FIRST name in the album of older CM photos. Happy viewing.
