During this time his works would make their way into various notable collections, and can now be seen in not only the SAIT Archives, but also the collections of the National Archives of Canada, the Glenbow Museum, the Art Gallery of Alberta, the Bibliotheque Nationale of Paris, France, as well as those of the Museum Ludwig in Cologne, Germany.

Throughout the next century, the institute would experience continual growth and undergo numerous changes in facilities and internal structure, as well as in population size and programming scope.  Along with these changes, the institute would be renamed in 1960 to the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology, and again in 2004 to Sait Polytechnic.

The Emery Weal: March 18, 1926. The first issue of the Emery Weal newspaper, or magazine as it was called then, showed up as a four-page bulletin highlighting the school's events. One copy was printed and passed around. When this proved impractical, the Weal was printed as a tabloid and sold for five cents. The Weal — the second oldest college newspaper in Alberta — has gone through a series of changes. It was stencilled legal-sized typewritten news-sheet in the '30s and '40s, a smaller typeset newspaper in the '50s and '60s, and returned to tabloid size in the '70s. In 1984, the SAIT Students' Association hired a non-student editor and formed an umbrella department to house all publications produced by SAITSA. In 2000, the newspaper started using an abbreviated moniker; now "the Weal."

Scope and Content: 

The fonds consists of 81 bounded books and approximately 51 volumes (approx. 32 issues each, or 1,600 individual issues) of The Weal, a weekly newspaper published every Monday by SAITSA, from November 1933 to the present date. The Weal aims to serve the SAIT community with a focus on students' interests and needs.

The title of this collection was based on the name of the SAIT school newspaper, the Emery Weal.

Returning to SAIT, he designed and taught various courses in the Aeronautics department, retiring as the program supervisor in 1984. He volunteered for a number of organizations including the Calgary Aero Space Museum and the SAIT Archives where he could indulge in his passion for aviation and teaching. George passed away on October 12, 2012, at the age of 89. He was married to Doreen Crozier and had five sons.

No. 2 Wireless Training School: On September 16th, 1940 the first BCATP School to open in the Calgary area, No. 2 Wireless School, was established by the RCAF in the facilities of the Provincial Institute of Technology and Arts (PITA). This was located on the properties now occupied by SAIT in Calgary.

Before the Second World War there was very little emphasis on the training of Wireless Radio Operators in the RCAF. However, as the War began, there was an urgent need for a great number of specialized, trained Radio Operators to be part of the crew of Bomber Command aircraft. As a result, the establishment of the BCATP in Canada in 1940 included plans for the construction of four dedicated 'Wireless Training Schools'. The four Wireless Schools provided facilities for training Wireless Operators in the operation and maintenance of radio equipment, both for ground-based wireless stations and as crew in aircraft, under actual flight conditions.
