to 1989 the undergraduate scholarships and medals were funded annually
by APEGGA following selection of winners by the universities. In
1989, APEGGA provided endowment funds for the University of Alberta
and the University of Calgary for the scholarships and medals as
a result of 2 for 1 matching of funds by the Government of Alberta.
The Universities manage the funds and provide scholarships from
the proceeds, the value of which varied depending upon the earnings
of the endowed funds. In 2004 it was agreed to top up these scholarships
to a value of $3,000.
Association, as recommended by the 1987-88 committee, commenced
a program of naming the APEGGA scholarships that at that time did
not have names assigned. This would be done on a progressive basis.
1944, the H.R. Webb Memorial Scholarship was established for University
of Alberta engineering students.

Webb, a graduate of Alberta, obtained his Bachelor of Science in
Civil Engineering in 1921, and the following year took his M.S.C.
He returned to the University immediately after graduation, and
remained on the Civil Engineering staff until his death. During
his life he strove to broaden his wide experience by following his
professional training on various projects during the inter-session
months, and by carrying on a consulting practice.
the "Undergraduate Society in Applied Science" was formed
in 1920 he was its president, and as the years passed did all in
his power to promote and assist in the development of the organization
- renamed "The Engineering Students' Society." In recognition
of his interest he was on two occasions its honorary president.
His interest in Engineers was so great that he made it his unique
business to know personally every Engineer to graduate from the
University of Alberta.
Webb contributed to the building of the various dams required for
the generation of much needed energy for Calgary Power, in the Southwestern
part of the Province of Alberta. He was an avid mountain climber
and a member of the Alpine Club. He made many climbs in the Rocky
Mountains, some of which may be recorded in the early day Alpine
Journals, (1930-1940) available at the local library.
passed away suddenly in September 1942, as a result of a mountain

John Allan was a professor in the Department of Geology and Mineralogy
at the University of Alberta. Registered under the Mining Engineering
Discipline, he saw the need for geoscientists to be officially recognized
and registered by the Association. Professor Allan was instrumental
in lobbying Alberta to be the first licensing body to register geoscientists
in Canada. Mr. Allan is deceased.
1988 the University of Calgary Undergraduate Engineering Scholarship
was named in honour of A. Clayton Milroy, P.Eng.
Clayton Milroy, P. Eng.
Registrar, 1978 - 1987
in Calgary, Clayton Milroy lived in Redvers, Saskatchewan and Edmonton.
He received his civil engineering degree from the University of
Alberta in 1950. His career began as the first graduate engineer
plan checker for the City of Calgary, and later as a design engineer
in both architectural and consulting engineering offices. He started
his own consulting engineering business in 1955, practicing structural
design and business development.
Milroy joined the staff of APEGGA in 1969, serving in various capacities
until he was appointed Executive Director and Registrar in 1978.
As well as his professional career, he also served the military,
where he commanded both signals and engineering units and served
as the National President of the Military Engineers Association
of Canada. Mr. Milroy died of cancer in 1987.
1991 the University of Calgary Undergraduate Geophysics Scholarship
was named in honour of Roy O. Lindseth, P.Geoph.
O. Lindseth, P.Geoph.
President, 1978 - 1979
Lindseth was born in Calgary and began his career in 1944 with the
United Geophysical Company. The University of Calgary bestowed an
Honorary Doctor of Laws degree upon him in 1978. As a geophysicist,
he pioneered work in digital signal processing. He is the inventor
of seismic techniques to aid in the interpretation of subsurface
lithology for delineation of hydrocarbon reservoirs. His book on
Digital Signal Processing was the basic text for many years. For
this, he was made a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada in 1978.
Lindseth served on numerous boards and professional organizations
and has been honoured with many awards for his outstanding service.
He served on APEGGA Council, was First Vice President (1978-79),
