George D.  MacDonald

George joined the CHS on May 23, 1966 immediately after graduating from the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology with a diploma in land Surveying Technology.

 He started his career as a junior field hydrographer and like many of his peers he was employed primarily as a Sextant operator.  His knowledge, abilities and excellent work ethic were recognized at an early stage of his career and in 1970 he was Senior Assistant on a Central Region survey.  By 1972 he was Hydrographer in Charge and he remained in an HIC position until 1979 when he assumed the duties of Central Region Hydrographic Development Officer.

 Early in his career, George developed a keen interest in new technology and his duties as Development Officer was a natural fit.  He contributed in a large way to the “automation” and implementation of new technology to the CHS.  He was recognized, not only in the CHS, but also within the International Hydrographic community as a leader in developing automated survey and data processing techniques.  He presented many papers at Hydrographic and Survey related conferences in many parts of the world.

 During his 30 years with the CHS he contributed in a wide variety of activities and to the collection of hydrography at many areas of Central Canada and the Arctic.

 In addition to his many contributions in the fields of technology, he also contributed to the national and international hydrographic community in other ways.  He taught hydrographers in India, he conducted surveys in Senegal, Africa.  He was President of the Canadian Hydrographic Association in 1973 and 1978 to 1980, and was Editor of Lighthouse for editions 37 through 40.

 George assumed the duties of Assistant Regional Director of Central Region in 1989 and remained in that position until 1995 when he accepted a special assignment for the last year of his career with the CHS.

 He retired from CHS on December 2, 1996.

Stephen B. MacPhee

 Steve MacPhee was born in 1939 at French Road, Cape Breton, where his father was a carpenter and farmer. He was educated at Sydney Academy, St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish and Nova Scotia Technical College. After obtaining a B.Sc. degree in electrical engineering in 1960, Steve was employed by E.M.I. Cossor Electronics on the design and evaluation of underwater acoustics instrumentation for military applications. During this period, he spent a considerable amount of time on Canadian and American naval ships in various areas of operation.

After a period with Sperry Rand Canada Ltd. from 1964 to 1967, engaged in the design and operational aspects of naval sonar, radar, communications and fire control systems, he joined the Bedford Institute of Oceanography in 1967. While there, he was involved in the design and testing of hydrographic and oceanographic sensors and data acquisition and processing systems. He was also engaged in the development and evaluation of echo sounder digitizers, correlation systems for signal enhancement, and narrow beam echo sounders.

In 1975, he joined the Canadian Hydrographic Service in Ottawa as Manager, Planning and Development. In this capacity, he was responsible for cartographic and hydrographic training and standards, hydrographic planning, nautical geodesy and geoscience mapping and GEBCO (General Bathymetric Chart of the Oceans).

Colin H. Martin

1912 - 1999

Colin H. Martin, assistant dominion hydrographer, retired on December 27, 1973, from the Canadian Hydrographic Service at the age of 61.

He was born at Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, in 1912. Shortly after, his parents moved to Stony Mountain, Manitoba, where he received his primary school education. His ancestors on his father's side were among the early settlers of Nova Scotia having come to Annapolis Royal from France in the year 1638. His mother's parents came from Iceland to Selkirk in the late 1800s.

Colin graduated from the University of Manitoba in civil engineering in 1934. During his summer semesters commencing in 1930, he worked on a geological survey, carried out work with a provincial land surveyor at Selkirk, drew the initial copyright plans for the Selkirk chimney, became assistant engineer with Anthes Foundry at Winnipeg, then was assayer at Berens River Mines and from there became engineer for three Newmont Corporation mines in the Geraldton, Ontario, area. He resigned from this position in July 1938 and joined the Canadian Hydrographic Service at Ottawa where he has been continually employed until his retirement.

His hydrographic field assignments have been in many areas of Canada including Great Slave Lake, the Mackenzie River, Lake Winnipeg, the Great Lakes, the Ottawa River and a variety of locations along Canada's eastern seaboard including lake Melville and Battle Harbour in Labrador and the coastal waters of Newfoundland.

In 1944, he conducted the initial bathymetric, temperature and water current investigation, on a high priority and secret basis, that culminated in the building of the atomic plant Chalk River.

He charted many strategic areas on Canada's eastern seaboard, and the important junction and dangerous area of Hardisty Island on Great Slave Lake known then as the graveyard for Great Slave Lake shipping. From 1950 until 1955, he was officer-in-charge of three east coast ships, but primarily the famous CSS Acadia, now decommissioned and part of the Museum of the Atlantic, in Halifax.

In 1956, he was promoted to superintendent of charts and additionally was designated as assistant dominion hydrographer in 1960. From 1956 to 1968, he directed the expansion of Canada's chart coverage from 600 to 1000 charts and has overseen the increase in annual distribution services of some 100,000 charts to the present [1974] 500,000. He also established a distribution agency system, national and international, of 300 dealers including an annual inspection system.

He successfully defended the Canadian Hydrographic Service charts and surveys in Canada's most major marine litigation in history, involving two days of grueling cross examination by Canada's leading marine lawyers. The case involved a ship collision between the German freighter Transatlantic and the Dutch freighter Hermes in April 1965 in Lake St. Peter area of the St. Lawrence River. The damages involved are between five and thirteen million dollars. The case went to the Supreme Court of Canada.

He has played a leading role in international aspect of hydrography, in modernizing Canada's navigational charts, and developing small craft, fishery, bathymetric, metric and other charts. He also laid the foundation for the present cartographic development program.

He has always been active in athletics, and in fact was one of Ottawa most outstanding curlers in the 1960s, a sport he started playing at the age of 12.

Colin H. Martin died August 20, 1999 in Ottawa, predeceased by his wife, Dorothy, and survived by his daughter Jo-Ann Mitchell of Chester, N.S., and grandchildren, and his sister, Eileen, who also worked for CHS for many years.

Joe F. McCarthy

Central Region [CHS] regrets to announce the untimely death by cancer of former Central Region hydrographer, Joe McCarthy.  Joe died at age 57, at McMaster Hospital, Hamilton, Ontario, September 11, 1996.  Many hydrographers, especially of the boom time 1960 to 1970 era, will remember Joe for his aggressive personality, dynamic drive and colourful social agenda both off and on the playing surface of many surveys.  Joe served on surveys on the Lower St. Lawrence River with Adam Kerr or Bruce Wright (Tadoussac, Rivière-du-Loup, St. Jean Port Joli), on the Georgian Bay survey of 1966 with Earl Brown, on the Lake of the Woods survey 1967, and on several Arctic surveys including James Bay, Hudson Bay and Chesterfield Inlet.  He was also on a noteworthy CSS Hudson Greenland oceanographic program, and on the CSS Baffin Caribbean training cruise of 1967.  Joe remained with the CHS hydrographic until the latter part of the seventies, when he married and broke ranks to become a very successful operator/owner of three Dairy Queen stores.

Autobiography

I was born and educated in Ontario and trained as a cartographer by the CHS.

From 1957 to 1964, I compiled several new charts in the New Charts section.

From 1964 to 1972, I was promoted to assistant Quality Control Officer

In 1972, I was promoted to a unit supervisor in the chart revision section where new editions were compiled and a maintenance program conducted for charts within the Atlantic Region. In 1977 I was appointed to interim production chief for the first marine cartographic presence in the Bedford Institute of Oceanography, Dartmouth NS, the start of a three- year decentralization program,1977-79. I also was the acting chief of production during 1980-81. During this period the first regional cartographic contracts were awarded to private firms.

1981-90, I was a Chart Production Unit Supervisor and a Contract Monitor on several cartographic contracts.

I was assigned as a data validation officer from 1990-1994

Throughout my career I participated on survey duties as listed next.

• 1960-Moose River, Moosonee Ont.
• 1973- revisory survey of 69 charts on the northeast coast of Newfoundland.
• 1989-90 after completion of Basic Hydrography course in 1989,assisted on sweep vessel, FCG Smith, surveys in PEI and NS; and ship based navigational surveys, Lauzier and Baffin, in Bonavista Bay, Newfoundland

During my career I was admitted to the Ontario Institute of Chartered Cartographers(CC) in 1967 and was active in the Ontario Institute of Chartered Cartographers organization both as a member of the Board of Directors, and as Secretary for the Institute in mid 1970s.

I retired from CHS in 1994 and I am presently employed as a bus operator for the Halifax Regional Municipality, Transit Services.

Thomas Duncan Wyness McCulloch

1925-

Tom McCulloch was the director general (Ocean Science and Surveys) of the Central Region, CHS, situated at the Bayfield Laboratories for Marine Science& Surveys in Burlington, Ontario.

He was born in Greenock, Scotland and obtained his elementary and high school education in Greenock. He served in the Merchant Navy from 1941 to 1945 during World War II, serving in the North Atlantic, the Mediterranean and the Indian Ocean. He remained with the Merchant Navy on the conclusion of hostilities, and served as navigating and chief officer on merchant ships until 1952. He joined the Canadian Hydrographic Service in 1953 as a hydrographer in Victoria, B.C. From then until 1967, he was a hydrographer and ships master on the Pacific coast and Western Arctic. During this period, he became hydrographer-in-charge, running survey parties in B.C. and Western Arctic waters, including work on the USCA Storis in support of the resupply of the Western DEW Line stations.

From 1960 to 1965, he became increasingly responsible for all hydrographic surveys in the Western Arctic, but at the same time managed to obtain first-class diploma in administrative management from the University of British Columbia.

He attended the senior survey officers course in Ottawa during the winter of 1964-65. During his years at Victoria, he initiated the formation of a Hydrographic Development Section in the Pacific Region. In 1967, he developed a brief on the education and training of hydrographers, which became an essential part of the framework of the CHS policy. He served as acting regional hydrographer during the absences of Mr. Young on matters of national importance and took over the duties of regional hydrographer of the Central Region in Ottawa in 1968, moving to Burlington when the region was relocated there in 1970.

Russel Cameron Melanson

Russ Melanson, Regional Hydrographer, Atlantic Region, retired on Dec. 28, 1978 after a long and colourful career with the Canadian Hydrographic Service.

Russ joined the CHS in April 1948 taking part in surveys of the Atlantic Provinces, Sub-Arctic, High Arctic, and the west coast for 16 consecutive seasons. Many of the establishments with which he served are long gone - either retired, sold or sunk. Some of these were CSS Kapuskasing, Acadia, Henry Hudson, Cartier, M.V. Terra Nova and Theron.

His first assignment as HIC was on the CHL Anderson in 1953. Following this assignment, he was given charge of the Cartier, M.V. Arctic Sealer, CSS Baffin and William J. Stewart.

In 1963, Russ transferred from Ottawa to the Atlantic Region. He was appointed Regional Hydrographer, Atlantic Region in 1964. He held this position until his retirement.

Russel Cameron Melanson, 79, Broad Cove, passed away peacefully July, 4 2002, in South Shore Regional Hospital.  Born in Mill Village, he was retired from the Bedford Institute of Oceanography, where he was Atlantic Regional Hydrographer for the Canadian Hydrographic Service.  He served in the Second World War as a member of the First Canadian Parachute Battalion, and was a past vice president of the First Canadian Parachute Battalion Association.  Russel was a son of the late Alexander and Cassie (Boland) Melanson.  He is survived by daughter, Laurie (David ) Ewer, Sackville; sons, Russel Jr. (Sandra), Charlottetown, PEI; Garron (Gay), Bible Hill; Ronald (Tina Newcombe), Upper Tantallon; brothers, Rod (Estelle), Mill Village; Rex (Muriel), Bridgewater; Royce (Shirley), Liverpool; seven grandchildren.  Russel was predeceased by his wife, Shirley (Hall), to whom he was happily married for 53 years; infant son, Stanley Alexander; sisters, Sandra, Muriel, Madge, Merlene; brother, Robert.

 Upon retirement, Rus and Shirley moved to Broad Cove, where they could enjoy a beautiful panoramic view of the Atlantic and the adjacent landscape.  Ironically, their home overlooked a large rock formation where the Baffin had run aground year earlier.  After years of spending more time away than at home, Rus was quite content to spend his time in and around Broad Cove.  And probably his favorite pass time was travelling over the back roads of his youth along the Medway river, reminiscing about a time which many of us were never privileged to experience.

Commander I.B. Miles retired from the Royal Navy and joined the Canadian Hydrographic Service about 1907, to conduct surveys in the Lower St. Lawrence.  In 1910 he was temporarily released from there to take the first survey parties north with the icebreaker Stanley to Churchill and Port Nelson.  He was one of a group in the British Navy known as the “Hungry Hundred”.  In a brief description of that Hudson Bay voyage, it is written:

“A former group of navy navigators, half a century ago, had been lightly dubbed by the seagoing fraternity as the ‘Hungry Hundred’.  In 1895, at a time of international crises, arms race, the Spanish-American and Russo-Japanese wars, the British Navy was rapidly expanding.  The strength in ships and men doubled in a ten-year period.  As naval schools were not turning out officers equal to the demand, the Admiralty provided for the entrance into commissioned ranks of one hundred young qualified Mercantile Marine navigators.  Three years later they welcomed fifty more.  Commander Miles retired from the navy about 1906, to join the Canadian Hydrographic branch for six years and then returned to England.” 

For the record, it might be noted that “Admiralty Orders in Council No. 19, dated 9th August 1898, SUPPLEMENTARY LIST – ADDITION OF FIFTY OFFICERS TO .” containing the following:

“Whereas Your Majesty was graciously pleased by Your Order in Council of the 29th June 1895, to sanction the entry of One Hundred Officers of the Mercantile Marine as Sub-Lieutenants and Lieutenants, on a Supplementary List of the Royal Navym to meet the requirements of Your Majesty’s Fleet … it has again become necessary to obtain additional Officers who have some experience, and are capable of at once learning the work of Executive Officers, etc, etc.”

Requirements, qualifications, remuneration, etc, were generally, “as Sub-Lieutenants, of or over 22, and under 25 years of age … as Lieutenants, of or over 25, and under 35 years of age … Candidates who have not served in the Royal Naval Reserve will be required to produce a Board of Trade Certificate for Master … serve a year on probation, service in the Navy as Royal Naval Reserve Officer counting as such … Sub-Lieutenants to be eligible for promotion after two years’ service.”

Rates of Pay, Hal-Pay, Retired Pay, as in Tables.  “Pensions for Hurts and Wounds, Widow’s Pensions, Compassionate Allowance to Children, to be at the same rate and nd under the same conditions as those granted to Officers of the Royal Navy or corresponding rank."

“Full Equipment Grant of 30 Pounds to Sub-Lieutenants and 40 Pounds to Lieutenants.”

(This recalls the acceptance of Canadian Hydrographic surveyors into the war-time RNVR by the Admiralty, for hydrographic duties.  Pay and allowances were as for Royal Navy officers, plus the regular hydrographic pay according to grade and classification.  Some were taken on the strength of a ship as Navigation Officer.  Had they had a Canadian master’s or mate’s ticket they could have been paid additional Navigating Officer’s pay.) [R.J. Fraser ought to know; he was one who went this route.]

In the time of Mr. W.J. Stewart and Captain Fred Anderson, we assistants were always signed on the Ship’s Articles along with the crew, in order to accumulate sea-going time, in case anyone later wished to go up for a certificate by examination.

Major William Campbell Murdie, M.C. B.A.Sc., M.A.Sc., F.R.G.S., DLS

1891-1965

Born in McKillop Township, Ontario, 1 July 1891, William Campbell Murdie received his elementary and high school education in that area before graduating from the University of Toronto in civil Engineering about 1913. He then went on for his Master's degree specializing in astronomy, geodesy and stereo-photogrammetry. He was articled as a Dominion Lands Surveyor in 1913, and was commissioned March 1916. In June 1914, Mr. Murdie was appointed to the Geodetic Survey of Canada, and in 1916 went overseas with the Canadian Artillery where he served with distinction in France and Belgium until 1919. For his gallantry in World War 1, he was awarded the Military Cross, and when the war ended he returned to the Geodetic Survey.

With the aid of the Tidal and Current Survey steamer Gulnare, he carried out reconnaissance geodetic surveys along the north shore of the Gulf of St. Lawrence, east of Seven Islands, from 1920-23. With the outbreak of World War 2, Mr. Murdie re-enlisted in 1941 in the military service of Canada, and was appointed a Staff Major at Canadian Engineers Training Centre at Petawawa. When World War 2 ended, he as a staff member of the Directorate of Engineer Development in Ottawa.

Upon his return to civilian life in June 1945, Mr. Murdie was re-assigned to the staff of the Legal Surveys and Map Service where he supervised higher mathematical work in this Division, and in the Division of Map Compilation and Reproduction. In December 1951 he was transferred to the Canadian Hydrographic Service to organize and take charge of its Nautical Geodesy Section. Here he remained until his retirement from active duty in July 1957. In addition to be a Dominion Land Surveyor and a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, Mr. Murdie was a Life Member of the Engineering Institute of Canada. He died after a prolonged illness in an Ottawa Hospital April 15th 1965, aged 74 years.

During his years there, Larry served as Hydrographer in Charge of the shore party at Sheet Harbour, N.S. for several years as well as HIC on the Cartier, Kapuskasing, Acadia and Anderson. Larry's 1962 survey on the Anderson, from Yarmouth to Cape Sable Island, was the first ship survey to use Hi-Fix. Larry also served as Acting Assistant Regional Hydrographer in Atlantic Region for an extended period. In the mid-sixties, Larry returned to Ottawa to head the newly formed GEBCO (General Bathymetric Chart of the Oceans) unit at CHS Headquarters. Larry then became the Head of the Hydrographic Information Unit. Shortly after his retirement in 1981, Larry moved to Brockville to be closer to his cottage on one of the Thousand Islands. He died on July, 14, 1995.
