The Julian Szeicz Memorial Prize

Established in memory of my husband, Julian Michael Szeicz, who was killed in an avalanche on April 16, 1998 while carrying out field work with two of his graduate students. He was only 33 years at the time of his death.

Julian was an assistant professor in physical Geography at Queen's at the time of his death. He loved his work and was very passionate about his research in dendrochronology.

Prior to being an assistant professor at Queen's he completed his PhD at McMaster University and a post-doc at University of Cambridge, England.

This fund was established to carry on his name and encourage students to follow in his footsteps.
