Orienteering Canada Hall of Fame

Malcolm Adams (posthumous)

Inducted in 2020 | Officials Leadership

Malcolm started orienteering in the early 1970’s as a leading member of the Viking Club. Malcolm developed into one of the best mappers in North America. He was a member of the Canadian Orienteering Federation (COF) Map Committee that developed the COF ‘Orienteering Mapping Manual’ and served as Map Committee chairperson. He started in the early days of colour maps, but was one of the early adopters of OCAD and taught many others how to use mapping software to produce better maps. His maps were for Canadian Champs and World Cups. He was a controller for numerous major events as well. “No one had a better feel for mapping vegetation than Malcolm.”
