Dalhousie University Class of 1913

I found this rather large, lovely photograph on eBay.  It wasn’t cheap, but I couldn’t overlook its historical significance.  Not to mention the fact that the man in the top center of the photograph with the large portrait is my great-great-grandfather John Forrest (1842-1920), former president of Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia.  The portrait was prepared by the Climo studio in Halifax.  The photo of my grandfather is similar to ones we already have, but not identical, so it is a new bit of information about him.

About cthomas1967

Seeking to bring my ancestors out of the shadows of history and into the light. I have always been interested in history, and at a few different times I tried to do a family tree, but wasn't able to do it with the technology that was available then. On a business trip I visited the World War I Museum in Kansas City, MO and it was a very impressive establishment. While I was there I remember thinking, "Didn't my great-grandfather father fight in World War I? And wasn't his brother killed alongside him in some famous battle? I wonder if I can find out where he died." That's what started it all. View all posts by cthomas1967
