High latitude electron cutoffs are determined from electron flux data collected by the magnetic spectrometer aboard the polar orbiting OV3-3 satellite 1966-70A. The cutoffs are examined as a function of nine energies from 300 keV to 2.3 MeV and are found to be a function of energy for all local times and to exhibit an energy dependent diurnal variation. This phenomenon is explained with the use of the models of Taylor and Hones and of Williams and Mead.
