Madly putting the finishing touches on a guest lecture tomorrow morning and found a whole new treasure trove of researching fun right here in Edmonton. Back in the early 1970s a group of students at the University of Alberta formed an organization called STOP (Save Tomorrow/Oppose Pollution). They did not have the longevity of other university groups — Pollution Probe — but they did do quite a bit around Edmonton promoting environmental issues and generally opposing pollution. Until tonight I have only found them mentioned in The Gateway. Then I came across this via the digitized photographs the Provincial Archives of Alberta has recently made available on-line. Score!
