On this day (Nov 10, 1910) my father, Chin Bow Chun, arrived on the SS INABA MARU which landed at Victoria; he was 10 years old. The General Register shows that he paid the Head Tax in the amount of $500.00.
Hi, I am Eric, a retired librarian. I was born in St. Michael's Hospital, Toronto and raised in the downtown area north of the Art Gallery, south of the University of Toronto. I went to Orde Street Public School, Harbord C.I., University College at the UofT and the UofT's Faculty of Library and Information Science. I meet my wife Patricia at FLIS; our first date was on November 15, 1968. We were engaged February 14, 1969 and married on June 21, 1969. Our family includes son, James; daughter-in-law, Erin; (both writers), grand-daughters, Vivian and Eleanor; and Sonic, a very friendly ginger tabby. My beloved wife died January 7, 2017 and our 19 year old cat Pooka died January 8, 2017.
I would like to hear from any other class of '63 alumni of Harbord C.I. and class of '67 alumni of UofT's University College.
