Berry Medal

The Leonard G. Berry Medal is awarded annually for distinguished service to the association. The award recognizes significant service to the Association in one or more areas that may include leadership or long-term service in an elected or appointed office or an important contribution(s) that enhances the mineral sciences in Canada or broadens the Canadian mineralogical perspective.

The medal is named after Leonard G. Berry (1914-1982), a founding member of the MAC, editor of The Canadian Mineralogist and its predecessor for 25 years and first winner of the MAC Past-Presidents’ medal. The medalist is chosen by a committee consisting of the two immediate past recipients of the medal and one member-at-large and is chaired by the Vice-President (ex officio).

Nominations are encouraged from the membership at large and should be sent to
