I am very happy that Al Cameron chose to get the Leonard Medal, the highest award of our society, here in the beautiful city of Prague in this magnificent hall of a most ancient university, serenaded by the lovely young Czech ladies. I hope we will not talk too long so that we may hear them sing again, before fainting from the heat of this unusual summer and from boredom. This occasion is graced by the magnificent Baroque architecture of Prague that is also reminiscent in style of so many of Al Cameron's theories. In inspecting the St. Vitus Cathedral, I note that many symbols have been put up in honor of the Meteoritical Society and its activities-stained glass windows with pictures of comets, Saturn, the formation of the Earth and the creation of the universe. This city has been the home of great astronomers. It is in this same modest field that Al Cameron has worked. There are many artistic renditions concerning creation myths and cosmology or cosmogony (as Al prefers).
