Dunbar, John (1872-1960)

John Dunbar was a teacher and school principal. In the Vancouver directory for 1920, he was living at 1813 Morton Avenue.

(The directory listing seems unusual, since John Dunbar was at 224 West 13th Avenue from 1916 to 1930, and he appeared at 1813 Morton Avenue only in 1920. However, Levi W. Stone, the manager of the Singer Sewing Machine Company, was at 224 West 13th Avenue under both the names and streets listing for 1920, so it appears that the listing for John Dunbar at 1813 Morton Avenue is correct.)

John Dunbar was born in Mornington, Perth County, Ontario, on January 21, 1872. His father was James Dunbar (1842-1917), who was a farmer. John’s mother was Catherine Millar (1844-1905).

John became a school teacher.

On December 28, 1898, in Logan, Ontario, John married Mary Martha Thompson. She was born in Logan on March 24, 1874. Her father was John Robert Thompson (1842-1920), who was a farmer. Mary’s mother was Jane Linton (1850-1938).

John worked as a teacher in Ontario until about 1912. He first appeared in the Vancouver directories in 1913.

1914 to 1915 936 West 8th Avenue
1916 to 1919 224 West 13th Avenue

1921 to 1930 224 West 13th Avenue
1931 1129 Pendrell Street
1932 to 1969 3605 West 8th Avenue

John continued to work as a teacher and school principal until he retired about 1939.

John and Mary lived in Vancouver through the 1950s.

John died in Vancouver on September 26, 1960. He was buried in Mountain View Cemetery in Vancouver.

Mary died in Vancouver on December 29, 1969. She was buried in Mountain View Cemetery in Vancouver.

John and Mary had the following children.

 

Violet Evelyn Dunbar

Violet Evelyn Dunbar was born in Downie, Ontario, on September 29, 1899.

She was an accomplished academic. She received a B.A. in 1921 and an M.A. in 1922. She taught briefly at Lord Hudson School in 1923, and then went to the University of Toronto, where she studied biochemistry. She received a Ph.D. in 1929.

On June 25, 1930, in Vancouver, Evelyn married Blythe Alfred Eagles. He was born in New Westminster, British Columbia, on April 23, 1902. His father was John (“Jack”) Edmund Eagles. His mother was Amelia Jane Johnston.

Blythe also had an impressive academic career. After winning the gold medal at the University of British Columbia in 1922, he went to the University of Toronto, where he received an M.A. in 1924 and a Ph.D. in 1926. He returned to the University of British Columbia, where he was the head of the Department of Dairying from 1936 to 1955. From 1955 to 1967, he was the chairman of the Division of Animal Science. As well, he was the dean of the Faculty of Agriculture from 1949 until he retired in 1967.

Violet and Blythe were well-known community volunteers in Burnaby. They had a home and beautiful garden at Deer Lake.

Blythe died in Burnaby on July 11, 1990. He was buried in Fraser Cemetery in New Westminster, British Columbia.

Violet died in Burnaby on July 2, 1993. She was buried in Fraser Cemetery in New Westminster.

Blythe and Violet did not have any children.

 

Lorne Hanon Dunbar

Lorne Hanon Dunbar was born in Logan, Ontario, on August 12, 1901.

In 1921, he was studying electrical engineering.

By 1925, he was a driver for the building supply firm of McCleery and Weston.

On October 1, 1925, in Vancouver, Lorne married Jessie McGregor Johnstone. She was born in Edinburgh, Scotland, about 1902. Her father was John Johnstone. Her mother was Isabel Anderson. This marriage ended in divorce.

By 1931, Lorne was a concrete mixer with Louis M. Diether’s building supply company.

On January 17, 1931, in Vancouver, Lorne married Alice Irene Morris. She was born on May 8, 1906, in England (possibly in Aston, Warwickshire). Her father was William Morris. Her mother was Martha Hill.

In 1969, Lorne was living in Santa Monica, California.

Alice died in Sechelt, British Columbia, on September 1, 1987.

Lorne died in Sechelt on January 9, 1988.

Lorne and Alice had a son, Raymond Lorne Dunbar, who was born in Vancouver on January 23, 1936. He married Elaine Nancy Kinkead.

Raymond worked as a survey and forecasting clerk for the British Columbia Telephone Company. His work sometimes required him to travel to other parts of the province. In June 1970 he was on an airplane that went missing.

The coroner later confirmed that the airplane had crashed near Cherryville, British Columbia. Raymond was killed in the crash, along with the pilot and three other men.
