The Scholarship Fund is a memorial to various past leaders of the professions.
Charles Anderson served many years as chief Engineer of the Land Court. He was always particularly helpful to young surveyors just starting out doing land court suveys and plans. He showed foresight in that he would gladly review your work and answer your questions before you finalized your plans quite a good many years before "Pre Filing Review" became a requirement of the Land Court.
Lewellyn Schofield also worked some years ago at the Land Court, but was also a member of the Board of REgistration for over 20 years. During his term on the Board there was good communication with MALSCE. He was instrumental in getting the law passed to require the first Land Surveyor member of the Board. Mr. Schofield was a past President of MALSCE.
Wallace Wyman was a past President of MALSCE and a longtime member of the Board of Directors.
C. Edwin Anderson served as MALSCE treasurer and convention organizer for many years.
Charles Moncreif was a longtime member of the Board of Directors. Known as Mr. Convention, he was a familiar sight at MALSCE conventions and represented MALSCE at most Canadian conventions.
Ken Lucas was instrumental in the development of the first evening classes for surveyors at Wentworth, serving as its first Director. Eventually, this included mail order classes.
