“Dr Herbert Baxter King, one of the moulders of the British Columbia school system, is dead.

Dr. King died in Ottawa today. He was 77.

One of the most widely-known figures in the field of education, he did much to shape the province’s educational structure.

He did so through his years as an active teacher in Vancouver schools, as an advisor to the department of education, as chief inspector of the B.C. school system and through his extensive writings.

For his work as advisor to the department of Education, he was awarded the Ferguson Memorial Award in 1938.

Dr. King was born in Perth County, Ont., and educated at the University of Toronto, Queen’s University. He received his doctorate from the University of Washington.

He began teaching in Vancouver in 1904.

In 1925 he became principal of Kitsilano Junior-Senior High School until he went to Victoria as advisory in 1934. From 1934 until his retirement 10 years ago, he was chief inspector on curriculum for the B.C. school system.

On retirement he and his wife moved to a small farm at Haney.

He kept his interest in progressive education alive and in 1953 wrote a lengthy series of articles for the The Vancouver Sun, defending the school system he helped establish from attack by certain members of the newly-elected Social Credit Party.

Dr. King served overseas in the First World War and attained the rank of major.

He is survived by his wife Minnie; a daughter in Ottawa; one son, Hubert King, Prince George; three brothers, Garfield, Vancouver, Earl, Long Island, N.Y., and Howard, Ladner; one sister, Mrs. J.A. Robertson, Ocean Park, B.C.”

“H.B. King, city school leader, dies,” Vancouver Province, November 9, 1956, page 12 [BC final edition]:

Dr. Herbert B. King, long-time Vancouver teacher and principal, and former chief inspector of schools in B.C., died in hospital in Ottawa today. He was 77.

As special technical adviser, he guided the provincial government in educational reorganization in the thirties and was appointed chief inspector in 1939.

He was given the highest professional distinction available to an educator in B.C. in 1938 when he was presented with the G.A. Ferguson Memorial Award.

As principal of Kitsilano High School from 1924 to 1934, he was popularly known as “The Major” from his First World War rank.

His four years overseas were the only break in 30 years of teaching in schools in Langley Prairie, Hammond, New Westminster and Vancouver from the time he arrived in B.C. in 1900.

He was not only an educator, but one of the best-educated men in the profession.

He held the degrees of bachelor of arts, master of arts, doctor of pedagogy and doctor of philosophy in Queen’s University and the universities of Toronto, British Columbia and Washington.

His writings include a biography of long-time Maple Ridge reeve, Solomon Mussallem.

Dr. King was born in Perth County, Ont.

He is survived by a widow and daughter in Ottawa; a son, Hubert B. King of Prince George; three brothers, Howard King, Ladner; Garfield A. King, Vancouver; Earl King, Long Island, N.Y.; and a sister, Mrs. J.A. Robertson of Ocean Park.”

“Boiling Wax Causes Shocking End to Nora, Infant Daughter of Mr. and Mrs. H. B. King, of Kerrisdale,”Vancouver Daily World, January 10, 1912, page 11; “KERRISDALE, Jan. 10. Terrible burns, caused by the flames from a blazing tin of wax setting fire to the child’s clothing, resulted in the death yesterday of Nora, the baby daughter of Mr. and Mrs. H. B. King, of Kerrisdale. The accident, one of the saddest that has ever happened in this community, happened yesterday forenoon. The infant was sitting on the floor near the stove, on which was a tin of wax which Mr. King was melting for household purposes. While engaged in household work for a few minutes In another room the melted wax boiled over and caught fire. The burning wax flowed off the stove and set fire to the helpless infant’s dress, which, in a moment, was a mass of flames. Summoned by the Infant’s cries, Mrs. King Instantly extinguished the flames and did everything in the power of an anguished mother to alleviate the child’s sufferings. But despite the assistance of medical aid, which was also summoned, the baby’s burns proved fatal and the child died yesterday afternoon. Mr. and Mrs. King have the sincere sympathy of the entire community in their sad bereavement.”
