“Meanwhile, some of the most prominent citizens in Dawson were English Canadian lawyers, among them George Black, F.C. Wade, Bert Pattullo, W.C.W. Tabor, and Harry Ridley.

Members of the legal profession also participated in the social whirl of Dawson. Ridley and his wife were members of Dawson’s early upper crust; it was Mrs. Ridley who, one back in Toronto, informed Laura Thompson Berton of the need to take an evening gown on her trip north to teach school. Indeed, Mrs. Ridley apparently showed Berton a whole rack of evening gowns she had worn in Dawson. Accustomed to taking a prominent role in civic affairs, lawyers littered the list of board members of the churches and hospitals of Dawson, while their wives and daughters were well represented among the charitable dames of the women’s auxiliaries.”

“Death of Mr. H.E. Ridley,” Vancouver Sun, June 7, 1915, page 9: “With startling suddenness the death took place yesterday morning at his residence, Shaughnessy Heights, of Mr. Henry E. Ridley, of the law firm of Ridley, Macrae and Tobin. Deceased was a resident of Vancouver for the past ten years and before that was in Dawson, in fact, he was one of the first to locate on the site of what is now the city of Dawson. Of an unobtrusive nature, the late Mr. Ridley took little or no part in public affairs. He leaves Mrs. Ridley and one young son to mourn him.”

“Mr. H.E. Ridley, a member of the law firm of Ridley, Macrae & Tobin, died suddenly at his home in Shaughnessy Heights last night, leaving a widow and one young son to mourn his death. Mr. Ridley before coming to Vancouver ten years ago had practiced law in Dawson, having been one of the very first to locate on the site of that city. It was in the Yukon that he met Col. H.S. Tobin and Mr. J.M Macrae and laid the foundation for the subsequent partnership in law practice which they entered into.

Mr. Ridley was of a retiring and unobtrusive nature and took little part in public affairs. He was rarely seen around the law courts, but devoted himself to a large private office practice in which he made many warm friends who deeply regret his sudden death.”
