Abstract
Introduction July 2020 by Don Gaynor: This album began as a collection of all the Lake O'Hara Lodge annual staff photographs since 1987 when Tim Wake asked me to do them for display in the stairwell to the second floor in the Lodge. I added the group photographs taken of the two reunions I attended and recently scanned all the other staff photos displayed on the stairway walls for the last part of this book
