W. Hossack

This is Wiliam (Bill) Hossack. Bill got a Ph.D. at DDO designing and building an oscilloscopic spectrophotometer for analysing the spectral plates taken with the 74-inch. He went on to take a position with the Department of Defence in Ottawa. One day in the early 50's he and his wife and small son were returning from Montréal on the infamous old highway between Montreal and Ottawa. Their car collided head on with another and both Bill and his wife were killed, though the boy survived. A real tragedy. Both were accomplished musicians.
