GA 1969 #3

The 1969 GA in Toronto, possibly in the Physics Department Lounge on the ground floor of the McLennan Physics building. Jack Heard is seated in the middle, smoking his pipe. The man facing the camera in the foreground may be R.M. Petrie who succeeded Heard as RASC President in 1955. The man with the beard may be Len Chester. The white-haired man behind Len may be Alf Scott, and he may be in conversation with A. Falk (with camera sling) and Paul Moffat. Rosalind Sundell is at lower left in the gold outfit (her back to the camera).
