Our graduation day from Oshawa General Hospital School of Nursing…last of the three year nursing program from this hospital in 1971. Nursing then became part of the Durham College curriculum as in other community colleges/universities.

A dozen red roses was presented to each Nursing graduate from Samuel McLaughlin who owned the estate next to the hospital. He started the McLaughlin Car Co. in 1907 which later evolved into General Motors of Canada ltd. He had given roses to the graduates for many, many years and was the primary benefactor of the hospital.

Group graduation photos were taken on the steps of his beautiful estate…he had made our day very special through his generosity.

Delmar Dunlop took a lot of local photos during his lifetime. Archives Lanark is now in possession of these photos.Then there is the Delmar Dunlop fonds– an eclectic collection of everything from photos in early Glasgow, Lanark Village and Carleton Place to family histories. Of special interest is the Cummins Rural Directory map that lists the landowners in 1920 in Ramsay and adjoining townships.

Photo from Hannah White’s Collection

 

Hannah White very graciously sent in these photos of life in CPHS years ago– most likely the 40s.  This note came with it:

Hi Linda,

I wanted to send you this picture I found of my grandma. I only know of her on it but I don’t know anyone else.

My grandma’s name was Lois (Macdougall) Stanley. The two basketball pictures are from CPHS. I want to say they are from around 1946ish

Thanks again Hannah!!

Sandra Sanderson My mom….June (Illingworth) Lay….back row, first on the left.

Carole Flint It looks like my sister Milly Reid bottom row 2nd from right.

Karen Dorman Second from left on the top row is my mother. The coach is my father Mac Saunders. The person beside my mother is one of the Healey twins. I think Mom has this picture with all the names. I will try and get it from her. The other Healey twin is at the end of the top row on the right.
Who were The Healey Twins?

Donna Sweeney Lowry-– They were Dora and Doris Healey twin daughters of William Healey and Isabell Hutchinson, born about 1930. Dora never married. Doris married Gerald (Gerry) Willows born about 1928, son of Russell Willows and Hattie Walker from Boyd’s settlement just off Highway 7 on the way to Fergusons Falls. When Hattie died, Russell married Merle Tennant. Doris and Gerry’s farm was next door to my Dad and Mom’s place on the first line of Ramsay, not far from Boyd’s Settlement. Gerry died in 1997, Dora in 2002 and Doris in 2011. Doris worked for Scotiabank in C.Place. I remember the Twins dressing alike, perhaps a different colour, but the clothes were the same, same skirt, same blouse, same sweater, same coat, same shoes! I am uncertain when Mr. and Mrs. Healey passed. I seem to remember Dora living on Miguel Street across from the train station in Carleton Place. I don’t know where Dora worked. Probably in a bank the same as her sister!!

 

Donna Sweeney Lowry Ray Paquette, on Mac’s other right!😁 On Mac’s left, our right looking at the photo, I am fairly confident it is Betty Dugdale who married Jim Paul of Mountblow Farms on Rae Rd near Almonte. I agree it is Dora Healey on Mac’s immediate right with Doris at the far left on the end of the same row.
Heather White Betty Paul is beside Mac.My mom Lois MacDougall (Stanley) is 2nd from the right on the bottom row.  🙂
