Allan B. Dove.

Allan B. Dove Allan B. Dove, FCIC, died on July 24 of this year. He had been working part-time as a consulting engineer following his retirement in 1974 from the Steel Co. of Canada, Hamilton, Ont. Dove first joined The Chemical Institute of Canada in 1928 when he was a student at Queen's University. He started work at the Steel Co. in 1932 as assistant supervisor of the Canada Works in Hamilton and rose to the position of senior development metallurgist.

Elected as a Fellow in 1940, Dove then enlisted in the Royal Canadian Engineers where he served overseas before mustering out in 1946 as a lieutenant-colonel.

His affiliation with the CIC was only one of Dove's main interests. He was a life member of the EIC, the ASM, the Wire Association and the Wire Reinforcement Institute. Dove was made an honorary member of the latter group in 1978; at that time only the second person to receive that distinction.

His work with the Wire Association included being editor-in-chief of the Steel Wire Handbook as well as a two-year term as president from 1958-60. This was the first time a non-American had held that post. He received a number of medals and awards from the Wire Association, topped off in 1970 by the J. Edward Donnellan Award for "leadership in maintaining the high principles in the wire industry".

Dove was born in Ayr, Scotland and his degree from Queen's was in chemical engineering.
