Elected president

I am always fascinated by pictures of people being honoured for some achievement or other. Here’s one from the October 25 1938 edition of the Toronto Daily Star, of a man who had just been appointed president of the Dufferin Old Boys’ association.

I think this refers to people who went to Lord Dufferin Public School in Toronto, but I’m not sure.

Because I was curious, I looked up George A. Keates in the Toronto city directories. The 1938 directory lists him as working as the assistant treasurer at Terminal Warehouses Limited. By 1944, he had become the division manager there, but he is not listed in the 1945 directory. This directory doesn’t list his widow, so I have no idea whether he passed away or moved elsewhere.
