A 54mm, 58.4 gram Sterling Silver Duggan Prize Medal awarded by the Engineering Institute of Canada in 1963 to G.G. Meyerhof and C.L. Fisher. Rev: Institute emblem at center (Beaver gnawing at tree), raised text above, "EMBLEM OF AWARD / DUGGAN PRIZE", and below, "METALLIC / STRUCTURES AND MACHINERY"; Obv: engraved at center, "G.G. MEYERHOFF / C.L. FISHER / 1963", further engraved text around upper and lower rims, "COMPOSITE DESIGN OF UNDERGROUND / STEEL STRUCTURES". Georg Gottfried Meyerhof (1916-2003) had a distinguished engineering academic career at both Technical University of Nova Scotia in Halifax and Dalhousie University, and was the son of the late Professor Otto Meyerhof, Nobel Laureate in Physiology for 1922. The Duggan Medal is listed as "Rare" in volume II of the Charlton Medal Catalogue, page 194. Most interestingly, the Charlton plate image for the issue depicts an undated medal to the same pair of recipients, although with names reversed. An important piece of Canadian Engineering heritage, housed in red plush C. Lamond presentation case.
