At Monaco's National Holiday on November 17th , 2009 Max Gurney was the only American receiving the promotion to Officer of the Saint-Charles Order by HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco at the Prince's Palace in Monaco.
Max Gurney has been a resident of La Jolla since 1993, after having served Pan American World Airways for 45 years.
Max was based in Monaco by Pan Am and lived there for over 10 years and is presently representing the Principality of Monaco as an Honorary Consul. He is also an associate member of the San Diego Consular Corps.
Together with Tony Haymet, Director of Scripps Institute of Oceanography (SIO) in La Jolla, Max Gurney was able to successfully bring about the effective partnership of SIO and the Monaco Institute of Oceanography.
Albert II of Monaco formalized the cooperative agreement between the two Oceanographic Science Research facilities and was awarded the 2nd Revelle Prize on October 23 in La Jolla.
And on June 10th, Max Gurney will be celebrating his birthday at the Monaco Palace with good friends Lee Clark and Dr. Jerry Pikolysky and HSH Prince Albert II.
