What Do the Technical Archives Include?

Dr. H. Q. Golder (1911 – 1990) – A Pioneer and Authority in Geotechnical Engineering

Dr. Victor Milligan (1929 – 2009) – An Acknowledged Expert in Dams, Embankments and Soft Ground Tunnels

The Archives also currently contain collections of materials from other senior Golder Associates professionals, as well as one summary of outstanding technical work:

Norman McCammon (1934 – 2009)

Larry Soderman (1927 – 1969)

Emeritus Professor E. T. (Ted) Brown, AC (1938 – ) 

Max Ervin (1949 – )

John L. Seychuk (1931 – Present)

Don Welch (1938-Present)

How Can I Access the Actual Archives?

Researchers, academics, and other interested parties are welcome to access materials through the Foundation.
In most cases, separate collections will be kept at the local Golder Associates office where the donor worked.
Onsite viewing may be arranged, as well as copying or scanning within the limits of copyright laws. Loans of actual materials will be restricted in most cases. Some materials are anticipated to be available for external accessibility, barring copyright prohibitions, in the coming years.
