Esteemed volunteers
Geography professors Stuart Semple and Brian Osborne, who have dedicated decades to The Royal Canadian Geographical Society, received the Camsell Medal in November for outstanding service.

Semple of Malagash, N.S., teaches at Mount Allison University. In 1993, he helped found the Canadian Council for Geographic Education to promote and improve the teaching of geography in Canada. He was also instrumental in creating the Geography Challenge in 1994. Since then, about 2.5 million students have participated in the competition.

Historical geographer Brian Osborne, an adjunct professor emeritus at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ont., served the RCGS for 20 years, on the Board of Governors and most RCGS committees, including Research & Grants, Awards and Canadian Geographic’s Editorial Advisory Committee.
