Artist Adam Normandin, a featured presenter at Conversations 2017, is the subject of a profile by David C. Lester. We offer a glimpse of the work of Canadian Pacific photographer Joseph William Heckman, who worked for the railway’s engineering department from 1898 to 1915. A new book by Ralph Beaumont covers Heckman’s photography extensively, and won it the Canadian Railway Historical Association’s annual book award last year. Winners of the 2016 John E. Gruber Creative Photography Awards Program are also presented, featuring the top work in two different categories: most evocative images of all-time and recent photographs made with mobile devices. Archives manager Jordan Radke shares highlights of recent collections acquisitions and processing work in his regular “Out of the Archives” column. We also present our 2016 Honor Roll of donors and an interview with Bon French, who chairs our board and has just made an extraordinarily generous and ambitious matching grant. His photograph of a Chicago and North Western empty coal train at Shawnee Junction, Wyoming, under a July 1994 sunset appears on the cover.
