...And this from the "About the Authors" section of CETNA:
Eugene Critoph joined AECL in 1953 and worked in the field of reactor physics until 1967. Subsequently he held a number of increasingly responsible scientific and management portfolios within the laboratories. His senior positions included director of Fuels and Materials, director of Advanced Projects and Reactor Physics, and vice-president and general manager of the Chalk River Laboratories. In 1986 he was appointed vice-president of Strategic Technology Management for AECL Research. Also in 1986, in recognition of his significant contributions to nuclear research, he was awarded the Canadian Nuclear Association's W.B. Lewis Medal. It was under Mr. Critoph's leadership that this volume was developed.
