For millennia, we have looked skyward, longing to break the bonds of the earth to soar among the clouds. Canada has had its share of pioneers who bravely reached for the skies when flight was in its infancy or who used their gifts and vision to create new and better ways to fly. This stamp issue, designed by Ivan Novotny of Taylor|Sprules Corporation, celebrates three individuals and two aircraft that took Canadian aviation to new heights. Elsie MacGill Vancouver-born Elizabeth Muriel Gregory (Elsie) MacGill was an aviation engineering pioneer in an era when women faced significant hurdles pursuing careers in science and technology. MacGill accomplished an astonishing number of firsts. She was the first woman in Canada to earn a degree in electrical engineering and is thought to be the first woman in the world to hold a master’s degree in aeronautical engineering. She was recognized as the first female aeronautical engineer and professional aircraft designer in the world, the first woman elected to corporate membership in the Engineering Institute of Canada, and the first woman to chair a United Nations technical committee. In 1938, MacGill was hired as chief aeronautical engineer at the Canadian Car and Foundry plant in Fort William, now Thunder Bay, Ontario. She designed all major components of the firm’s Maple Leaf Trainer II aircraft. During the Second World War, the manufacturer was contracted to supply the Royal Air Force with Hawker Hurricanes. MacGill guided their production and oversaw design refinements for a modular system that simplified construction, repair and parts replacement. MacGill, who was celebrated in a wartime comic book as β€œQueen of the Hurricanes,” later advocated for equal rights and served as an influential member of the Royal Commission on the Status of Women.
