    Navigation in Canada
    From: George Huxtable
    Date: 2007 Jan 21, 21:44 -0000

    The following message was recently sent to "rete" (mailing-list,
    primarily for curators and other denizens of science-inclined museums)
    and may be of interest to some NavList members. I have copied it
    across without asking for permission.
    I know nothing more about it than what's stated below.
    contact George Huxtable at george@huxtable.u-net.com
    or at +44 1865 820222 (from UK, 01865 820222)
    or at 1 Sandy Lane, Southmoor, Abingdon, Oxon OX13 5HX, UK.
    From: "Randall Brooks" 
    The Canada Sci & Tech Museum recently published Setting Course: A
    History of Marine Navigation in Canada  by one of our staff
    Sharon Babaian.  Although primarily focused on marine navigation in
    Canadian waters, the various types of navigational equipment discussed
    by Sharon were in use elsewhere.  Those of you interested in marine
    navigation may find this work useful for comparison of related issues
    and technologies in American or European waters.
    The abstract may be found at:
    Setting Course: A History of Marine Navigation in Canada is #14 in the
    Museum's Transformation Series.
    A related work is Garth Wilson's History of Shipbuilding and Naval
    Architecture in Canada, 1995. (#4 in the Transformation Series).
