John Patrick Dunn: A biography

By Angela Dunn 

John Patrick Dunn was a local historian, councillor and storyteller who immortalized the people and places of the Ottawa Valley and especially his hometown of Almonte, Ontario in his short stories and writings.

He was born in 1919, the second in a family of 13 children. His parents, Mary Helena Moynihan, a schoolteacher, and John Francis Dunn, a local doctor, raised their family in a large stone house at the corner of Queen and Clyde Streets, known as “The Doctor’s House.” From his mother he learned to play piano, a talent that he would practice daily throughout his life. From his father he inherited the gift of listening, an appreciation for nature and a desire to explore new territory. READ more here in The Millstone
