Renowned for his vision and generosity, Stewart Blusson has been a leader in the fields of mineral exploration and geological research. Following a path carved by ancient glaciers over hundreds of kilometres, he and a partner discovered a diamond deposit in the Northwest Territories. This led to the establishment of the first diamond mine in Canada and has given birth to an industry that is quickly gaining global importance. He has since created a prize for earth and environmental sciences research and made significant gifts to the University of British Columbia and the Sea to Sky University, which will be the country's first private, secular, not-for-profit liberal arts and science institution.
