1966 - Delayed Retirement Finally Arrives
When A. J. Dawson, superintendent radio engineering, reached retirement age last March, D.O.T. asked him to stay for a special job.
He was asked to represent Canada, as he already had on a number of occasions, on the council of the International Telecommunications Union, an agency of the United Nations with headquarters at Geneva.
Last fall, after finishing his assignment, Mr. Dawson finally retired to live in Ottawa.
He first came to Ottawa in 1947, prior to which he worked for the department as a radio range operator in western Canada. Earlier radio experience was in the British wireless marine service as a sea-going Operator.
