Canadian Well Logging Society fonds
1.5 m of textual records. -- 31 photographs
Representatives of major oil companies and service companies met in Calgary, Alberta in 1955 to determine the feasibility of forming a society to further the science of well log interpretation. The society was incorporated in 1959, and regular meetings were held to discuss and encourage research and study log interpretation problems. Over the years symposia have been held and a variety of technical speakers invited to meetings. By mid-1970s the membership was over 300. For further information see Bill Corbett's article, "The Canadian Well Logging Society 40th Anniversary" in Canadian Well Logging Society Journal. -- vol. 20 (1995), p. 4-7.
