William Rowan (1891-1957) was among the best known Canadian scientists during the first half of this century. Although born in Europe and educated in England, he spent his professional life at the University of Alberta where he did pioneering experiments on the causes of bird migration, promoted conservation, popularized science through radio programs, and established a reputation as a nature artist.
