PREFACE 




ROMINENT PEOPLE" is designed by the publishers to 
provide a record of the men and women who, in one capacity 
or another, are contributing to and making possible the 
growth and development of the Maritime Provinces. In 
former times the history of a country could be traced in 
the biographies of its great men; but in these days of 
democratic institutions and universal franchise, the true 
history of a country is the record of the masses, for it is the masses who, through 
their representatives and by their individual services and sacrifices, give to a 
country a noble or ignoble place among the nations. 

Public memories, sometimes, are short-lived, and history records only 
the names of those who stand out most prominently in the great events of the 
times. The aim of "Prominent People" is to create a lasting memorial not 
only for the great men, but also for those lesser personages in all walks of life 
who, by their toil and sacrifices, are laboring for the advancement of the 
Maritime Provinces, and are the real moulders of their destinies. The publica- 
tion of such a work is especially appropriate at this time to commemorate 
the services rendered both at home and abroad by so many of our men and 
women during the recent Great War, in the interests of the Empire and the 
cause of democracy throughout the world. 

This book is not designed as a work of praise, but of facts. One's educa- 
tion, professional or business training and experiences and status in the com- 
munity are facts which no man or woman should hesitate to see in print, and 
which the public have a right to know. 

The book will have a value for the historian quite beyond its use as a 
current work of reference. It is hoped it will do its part in making all the sons 
and daughters of these three Provinces better known to each other, and will 
give a bird's-eye view of their usefulness and contribution to the confederated 
Provinces of the Dominion. 

Considerable care has been taken to secure accuracy, but if mistakes 
occur as they are liable to occur in a work of this nature we shall be grateful 
if they are called to our attention so that they may be rectified in future editions.

PROMINENT PEOPLE OF THE MARITIME PROVINCES 



After managing historic Mechanic's In- 
stitute (otherwise known as York Theatre 
and the Nickel) for the Keith-Albee 
interests for seven years, the American 
lessees were induced by their local 
representative to erect a modern com- 
bination theatre on King Square, sub- 
sequently known as the Imperial Theatre, 
which worthily succeeds the famous 
Lanergan's Lyceum, famed in the fifties 
and sixties for the players of international 
repute who treaded its stage whilst 
enjoying summer vacations, an idea that 
met with much favor amongst the great 
actors and actresses of America, and 
naturally a delight to the people of this 
section of Canada. During the Great 
War the Imperial Theatre aptly lived 
up to its name in war work, being devoted 
almost continually to recruiting efforts,

HALL, George Archibald, Collector 
of Customs and Excise at Truro, N. S. 
Mr. Hall was born Nov. 29, 1858, at 
Truro, and his entire life has been spent 
there. He was the only child of George 
H. and Eliazabeth (Archibald) Hall. 
His great-grandfather was one of four 
brothers who settled in Truro in 1762, 
three years after the first settlers arrived 
from New England. Four generations 
have spent their lives in Truro, and were 
active members in promoting the up- 
building of the community in their day 
and generation. The father died in 
1861, when the subject of our sketch was 
barely three years old, but his mother 
survived till 1915. His education was ob- 
tained in the Common and High Schools 
of Truro, and afterward he was actively 
engaged in mercantile pursuits for a 
period of twenty years. Turning atten- 
tion to the newspaper field, he became 
managing director of the "Colchester 
Sun," and also the "Truro Citizen," the 
fortunes of which were ably managed 
for a period of five years. During a life- 
time spent in his native town, he has 
always been keenly interested in all 
movements for its development and 
prosperity, and for twenty years was 
prominently identified with the political 
history of Colchester Co. In 1887 he 
organized the Truro Board of Trade, 
which still flourishes, and has be- 
come a recognized factor in the growth 
and development of the town. As an 
active promoter of the Truro Amateur 
Athletic Association in 1890 there was 
secured an athletic grounds unsurpassed 
in Eastern Canada, and which by deed 
has recently been vested in the town, for 
the sole use and benefit of the youth of 
Truro for all time. In 1913, upon the 
death of the then collector, he was ap- 
pointed as his successor, Collector of 
Customs and Excise for the Port of 
Truro, since which time he has dis- 
charged the duties attaching thereto 
with an eminent degree of success. For 
upwards of a score of years Mr. Hall has 
been prominently associated with the 
various orders of Masonry in the town 
of Truro.

IRVIN, John, K.C., Barrister. Born 
Halifax, N. S. Married Maggie E. 
Fletcher, Mar. 10, 1873. Educated Free 
Church Academy, Gerrish St., Halifax. 
Spent the three years following his 
graduation as book agent, clerk and other 
business occupations; later decided to 
study law and was articled to a prac- 
tising barrister at Halifax; called to the 
Bar Dec. 31, 1870; practised for a number 
of years in Halifax, then moved to 
Bridgetown, Annapolis Co., N. S.; en- 
gaged for some years in promoting cheese 
and butter factories, also organized a 
company to carry on brick making at 
Bridgetown, which later failed; promoted 
the building of a railway from Middleton 
through Granville on the north side of 
the Annapolis River, under the North 
Mountain to Port Wade, on the Anna- 
polis Basin. Several years were spent in 



the construction of this railway which 
was later subsidized through the efforts 
of Mr. Irvin by both the Dominion and 
local governments. Although the com- 
pany failed, the railway was completed, 
chiefly through the efforts of Mr. Irvin, 
and is a splendid thing for the country 
through which it passes. It is now part 
of the Canadian National Railways. 
Later gave up promoting and applied 
himself to the practice of law; was ap- 
pointed Crown Prosecutor for Anna- 
polis Co., 1906, which position he still 
holds; appointed "One of His Majesty's 
Counsel Learned in the Law," 1909; 
was one of the parties who were instru- 
mental in procuring a water supply for 
Bridgetown and framed the act which 
enabled the town, then unincorporated, 
to borrow the necessary funds; was 
Chairman of the Commissioners ap- 
pointed under this act for ten years 
until the town was incorporated, when 
he was appointed Stipendiary Magis- 
trate by the government for the Town 
of Bridgetown, and still retains this 
position. Has contributed many articles 
to the press on the welfare and morals 
of the community. About fifty years 
ago when Nova Scotian law permitted 
imprisonment for debt long after English 
and American law had abolished it, Mr. 
Irvin wrote a series of articles on the 
subject which were published in the 
Halifax Morning Chronicle for many 
months, and which so aroused public 
thought that imprisonment for debt 
was abolished at the next session of the 
House of Assembly. Mr. Irvin has 
always taken a deep interest in the 
early history of Nova Scotia, and has 
contributed to the press a number of 
articles on this subject. He has also 
read several papers before the Historical 
Society at Halifax, among which is one 
on John Young, the first Secretary of 
Agriculture for Nova Scotia, delivered 
Feb. 25, 1908, and also one on the 
History of Bridgetown, delivered Jan. 
2, 1914. These papers created a great 
deal of interest and were widely pub- 
lished. Mr. Irvin is a Christian, but favors 
no special creed. Address, Queen St., 
Bridgetown, N. S.
