Dennis O’Grady takes retirement easy—almost


numbers of photographs and slides, many of them «one-of-a-kind», of significant, and in some cases, unique events that have taken place in the South Nation River wa- tershed region.They include on-site photos and film footage from the Lemieux slide, irreplaceable pictures of the various dam construction projects that gave birth to the SNC flood control andmonitoring program, and images of ordinary people living their lives in the South Nation region. «We’ve got about 10,000 35mm slides, photos, negatives and such,» said O’Grady, adding that one of his goals is to winnow that down to about 2000 key photographic examples from SNC history. The end result will be invaluable to SNC staff, present and future, for better unders- tanding of their own purpose, and both future historians and researchers for their own projects. O’Grady himself might even be tempted to create a coffee-table type SNC photo history out of his archival efforts. «It would make a good book,» he said.» Dennis O’Grady et son épouse, Donna Kraft, passent plus de temps ensemble depuis qu’il a pris sa retraite de la Conservation de la Nation sud (CNS), à l’exception du temps qu’il passe au bureau de la CNS. En effet, il effectue des travaux de recherche d’archives sur l’histoire de l’agence régionale de conservation. —photo Gregg Chamberlain

Dennis O’Grady has an interesting defi- nition of the word, “retirement”.

Still, some might wonder why O’Grady would choose to spend part of his retirement years sorting through old files and photos at the SNC office. His answer is simple. It needs doing. «This is the history of the conservation agency,» he said. «I think it’s important to protect the history of the SNC.» Besides the early documents dealing with the founding of the SNC, and some of the day-to-day activities when the agency first began, O’Grady noted there are countless
