Notice biographique

Henry Duckworth was born in Brandon, Manitoba. He was the only child of a United Church minister. He graduated from Wesley College with a B.A. (1935), and the University of Manitoba with a B.Sc. (1936) and a Teaching Certificate (1937). Following three years of secondary and junior college teaching, he enrolled at the University of Chicago where he earned his Ph.D. in Physics in 1942. He undertook three years of war research with the National Research Council of Canada. He worked at the University of Manitoba (1945-1946), Wesleyan University (1946-1951) and McMaster University (1951-1965). In 1965 he became vice-president of the University of Manitoba, and then president of the University of Winnipeg (1971-1981). He was chancellor of the University of Manitoba (1981-1991). Dr. Duckworth gained international acclaim for his work in atomic energy, especially his work in mass spectroscopy. He was able to accurately predict the energies released in various nuclear transmutations. Dr. Duckworth died December 18, 2008.
