Biographical history

The records within the collection were received as a donation from the family of Donald S. Lawson, former President, CANDU Operations, Atomic Energy of Canada Limited. Donald Lawson was born January 18, 1935 in Liverpool, England, and passed away December 19, 2012. Some records were integrated into F-16000, the collection of the Canadian Society of
Senior Engineers. The remaining records were more appropriately organized within a specialized collection, F-20000, the Nuclear Industry. F-20000 is not affiliated with the Canadian Nuclear Society. The three series identified provide a brief historical perspective to the Canadian and international nuclear industry.
