About the J.H. Holloway Scholarship Foundation

The foundation was formed in 1975 to commemorate Jack Holloway, our Secretary Treasurer for the years 1941 to 1967.

 During Jack's long, productive and all-encompassing stewardship of the Alberta Land Surveyors' Association, he was the initiator and driving force behind modernizing the Surveys Act, the Land Surveyors Act, the Planning Act, and had considerable input into revisions to the Land Titles Act and the Expropriation Act. He was well known and highly respected in surveying circles across Canada and wrote at least nine articles for The Canadian Surveyor on various topics including "The Discovery of the Longitude," "Northern Alberta Oil Sands and Their Development," and particularly "The Principles of Evidence," which has become a classic in its field and required reading for a proper understanding of the "Surveyor and the Law."  Jack had a lucid polished literary style and a well developed sense of humour. In his younger days he was a regular contributor to Punch in London, England. He wrote a history of the Alberta Land Surveyors' Association and wrote articles and gave lectures on town planning.

Jack Holloway's achievements were many, profound, and lasting.
