“Leslie Pidgeon is of Scottish pioneer extraction and a graduate of Morrin College (Quebec) Presbyterian College, (Montreal) and Queen’s (Kingston), having followed a grandfather and his own eldest brother into the ministry. He knows the Dominion thoroughly, his first charge having been St. Andrew’s Church. Markham, Ont., in 1901, followed by Knox Church, St. Thomas, Ont., in 1905, St. John’s. Vancouver, in 1911 and Augustine Church, Winnipeg, in 1915 and Erskine, Montreal, in 1925. (In their student days (1893) Mrs. Pidgeon and he had each been members of Erskine Church.)

Dr. Pidgeon is a clear and logical thinker and preacher with a modern outlook. He keeps well abreast of current thought and possesses the confidence of his people and asso-ciates. Is a strong advocate of home and foreign missions. (His grandmother, Mrs. Edward Pidgeon, was prominent in the founding of the first Women’s Missionary Organization in Canada, at Princetown (Malpecque), P.E.I., in 1825). A tower of strength on the side of Church Union, his services are in frequent demand on Committees, especially those dealing with law and legislation or some unusual problem.

An ardent golfer and a lover of the out-of-doors, Dr. Pidgeon was elected President of Rotary International in June, 1917, and enjoys a very wide acquaintance.”

Pidgeon process, Wikipedia article, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pidgeon_process:

“This process was invented in the early 1940s by Dr. Lloyd Montgomery Pidgeon of the Canadian National Research Council (NRC). The first plant was built in 1941 and operated by Dominion Magnesium in Haley, Ontario, Canada. This plant operated for 63 years, most recently by Timminco Metals. In the last 10 years, the Pidgeon process has come to dominate world magnesium production. China is the dominant magnesium metal supplier, relying almost exclusively on this method.

The silicothermic reduction of dolomite was first developed by Dr. Amati in 1938 at the University of Padua, where his thesis is archived. Immediately afterward, an industrial production was established in Bolzano. The process used externally heated retorts identical in concept to those used by Dr. Pidgeon two years later.”
