Description:The Montreal Planetarium, previously known as the Dow Planetarium, was inaugurated on April 1, 1966 by Mr. Jean Drapeau, who was Montreal’s mayor at the time. This event marked the culmination of more than three years of planning and hard work by Dr. Pierre Gendron, who was past professor of chemistry and founding Dean of the Faculty of Science at the University of Ottawa, and an avid amateur astronomer. At the time, Dr. Gendron was also president of the board of directors of Dow Breweries, which later became O’Keefe Breweries (now known as Molson-O’Keefe). It was through his impetus that Dow Breweries decided to endow Montreal with a world class planetarium, add to the city’s touristic appeal, and to the 1967 World’s Fair.
