Founder of the Malta Map Society (MMS) in 2009 and still its President, Albert Ganado has been involved in studies on Maltese history and cartography for many years. Several of his books have been reviewed in these columns, and in 2011 he was awarded the prestigious IMCoS-Helen Wallis Award. In November last year he was invested with an honorary degree of Doctor of Literature by the University of Malta in recognition of all his multifarious contributions to society. Following this year’s annual general meeting of the MMS on 8 March 2014 a special party was held to celebrate his 90th birthday. Sincere congratulations to Dr h.c. Albert Ganado, distinguished historian and map personality, and probably the oldest active President of any map society in the world.
