Professor Edward I. Leith
1906-1999

Ed Leith is remembered for his life-long love of teaching geology, and particularly for his dedication to introducing the wonders of paleontology, Earth history, and Earth processes to school children. Outreach was a mission close to his heart, and represents a legacy that the University of Manitoba, the Department of Geological Sciences, and Edís colleagues, alumni, friends, and family wish to perpetuate through The Ed Leith Cretaceous Menagerie.

Ed Leith was a member of the faculty of the Department of Geological Sciences from 1935 to 1971. He was appointed Professor Emeritus in 1972 and continued to be involved in departmental affairs until the year of his death.

The Ed Leith Cretaceous Menagerie was formally dedicated in a ceremony on the 19th of September 2003.
