GeoKnow reblogged this on GeoKnow Blog and commented:

J Tuzo Wilson was a Canadian scientist whom every Canadian should know. I realize not all of us are Geo-Geeks, but the contributions this man made to our understanding of how the world works are immense. I remember first hearing of him in Mr Krummins' Gr 11 Physical Geography course in 1978-79 and was fascinated. I imagine we watched Planet of Man, too.
