Proof of the ability of Alfred Powis is to be found in his rapid rise within Noranda Mines, from his entry into the company in 1955 to assumption of its presidency in 1968. Paralleling this has been his participation in public debate on national issues, the multiplying of his philanthropic efforts and his support of Ontario universities and the Stratford Festival.
