W.D. Lowe – 1919

I always find it interesting to uncover photographs of prominent citizens, and it’s always interesting to put a face to the name. Today is a picture of W.D. Lowe, whom the school on Gilles was once named after. This image is from the “Border Cities Era” February 1, 1919 edition.

The issue was devoted to the Windsor Collegiate Institute, later known as Patterson Collegiate Institute. The caption reads as follows:

W.D. Lowe, M.A., who is in charge of classics at the W.C.I. He was graduated from Queen’s University in 1908. His father, the late A.B.Lowe, was president of maintenance of ways of railroad employees.

Have a safe weekend everyone, I’ll see you back here Monday.
