The History of the NumbersThe Canadian Caver started with Julian Coward, who was a graduate student at McMaster University in 1969. Editorship and production stayed at McMaster for some years, filled mostly with tales of the exploits of the McMaster University Caving and Climbing Club (MUCCC) in both the Canadian Rockies in summers (mostly) and Mexico in the winters. During this time, editorship was shared amongst the caving grad students. As the students dispersed to follow various and sundry careers, so did production of the magazine.A good number of the McMaster students headed west to karst in the Rockies, and so did the Canadian Caver. For many years, the magazine was "run" from Calgary, where the mailing address and bank accounts for subscriptions and printing costs were located. Variously, the production flourished and floundered, which has always been a consequence of it's reliance on volunteer production. It was during this time that Dennis Weeks, a Calgary Alberta Speleological Society member, took on the task of properly reviving the magazine. The efforts were a great success, but a combination of burn-out and other priorities led Dennis to surrender.It was in mid-1997 that a cardboard box of articles, a partly completed issue with associated electronic files, and bank accounts were adopted by a production team consisting of Pat Shaw, Martin Davis and Rick Coles and the Canadian Caver moved to the West Coast. A renewed interest in re-vitalizing the production, increasing access to digital production capability, a fresh web presence (on the "CanCaver" domain donated by Theo de Raadt from Calgary) and we've continued to limp along ever since.The Past EditorsListed below are the editors who contributed their time and energy into producing the past issues. As described in the index page, the issue numbering has changed quite a bit over the years. We are always looking for capable Canadian cavers, inside Canada or elsewhere (a few issues were produced by Chris Lloyd from Mexico) willing to produce an issue.
