Prime Minister Lester B. Pearson announced the creation of the Order of Canada, effective July 1. The Order has three grades of membership: companion, officer and member. Pearson himself was made a companion the next year, which he added to his Nobel Peace Prize and Order of the British Empire. He received the Order of Merit in 1971. One might say Pearson had a “well-ordered” career.
