Author funds expeditions
The Royal Canadian Geographical Society's expeditions program is US$10,000 richer thanks to a donation in January from acclaimed travel writer Leila Hadley Luce. Author of Give Me the World and A Journey with Elsa Cloud, Hadley Luce was married to the late Henry Luce III, the son of the founder of Time magazine.
Gisèle Jacob, president of The Royal Canadian Geographical Society, travelled to New York City in March to thank Hadley Luce and attend the Wings Women of Discovery Awards gala, which recognizes women in geographic exploration. Hadley Luce is co-founder of Wings WorldQuest, the non-profit organization that presents the awards.
