Pat Morrow is a renowned photographer, mountaineer, author and filmmaker. In recognition of these achievements, he received the Order of Canada in 1988 and the Summit of Excellence at the 1990 Banff Mountain Film Festival. Pat was instrumental in the formation of The Conrad Kain Centennial Society (CKCS), which was created in 2007 to celebrate the legacy of mountain guide Conrad Kain, whose life burned like a "splendid fire" as he quietly set new standards during the Golden Age of Canadian mountaineering.
