ROBERT FREDERIC STUPART (1857-1940) joined the permanent staff of the Canadian Meteorological Service as a map-drawer when he was only 15. Who would have thought that he would someday have a bay named for him on Hudson Strait. become a Fellow, and later President of Section III of the RSC, be President of the RCI, an honorary life member of the Royal Meteorological Society of London and be knighted Sir Frederic?

As Carpmael's successor as Director of the Meteorological Service, he graciously agreed to stand as Vice-President of the Society in 1896, becoming President in 1902. He contributed dozens of articles and served the RASC as Associate Editor. Sir Frederic spoke to Toronto (Centre) a number of times in the 1920s and served as their first Honorary President from 1930 to 1934.
