New College for Boys was at 1649 Nelson Street in 1909 and 1910, before moving to 1182 Denman Street in 1911. (1649 Nelson Street was later the place where the comedian Jack Benny first met his wife, Sadie Marks, who called herself Mary Livingstone.)

In 1909, the principals of New College School were C.H. Jackson (B.A. New College, Oxford) and G. D’A. Burrow (B.A., Wadham College, Oxford). The matron of the school was Mrs. C.H. Jackson.

One of the students at the school was Hugh Keenleyside (1898-1992), a Canadian university professor, civil servant and diplomat. He wrote briefly about New College in his memoirs:

The school selected was known as New College, and the faculty consisted of two young Englishmen, both of whom had attended New College, Oxford. They shared a love of history and had strong feelings about the English language and its literature. The headmaster was Roy Sachs, a first-class rugger player, invariably chosen for the Vancouver “Reps,” and a wonderfully inspiring teacher of both games and the academic arts. The other instructor, whom I remember as tall and fastidious and who was named Moilliet, taught languages and mathematics. . . . It was a small but unique school, exciting both on the athletic field and in the library, endowed with an aura of good fellowship, devoted to training in both character and mind. . . . When war broke out in 1914 both teachers enlisted. Roy Sachs was killed almost at once; Moilliet was later incapacitated by wounds. The school, of course, disappeared.

Charles Rainsford Draper

Before the war, however, there was another tragedy associated with New College School. Charles Rainsford Draper was one of the school’s instructors, and he was planning to buy the school.

On April 19, 1910, Charles went to Third Beach in Stanley Park, most likely planning to go swimming in English Bay. Although he was an accomplished swimmer, he apparently drowned. His body was never found.

Charles Rainsford Draper was born on April 23, 1856, in Culworth, Northampton, England. His parents were Thomas Draper (1803-1869) and Mary Bryan. Thomas Draper was a solicitor who served three terms as the mayor of Banbury.

In late 1886, in Bromley, Kent, Charles married Mary Elizabeth Ilott. She was born on January 14, 1861. Her parents were Herbert Ilott (1827-1887) and Hannah Julia Fennell. Herbert Ilott was a surgeon. Hannah Julia Fennell was the second daughter of Rev. John Fenell, of Crosstone, Yorkshire.

By 1886, Charles was a tutor, and he was living at Hartford Cottage in Winchfield, Hampsire.

Charles arrived in Canada in 1907.

In 1908, he received a professional teaching certificate from the Province of Manitoba.

 

Winnipeg Tribune, August 6, 1908, page 10, column 2.

 

By early 1909, he was offering to teach students in Vancouver.

 

Vancouver Province, March 31, 1909, page 22, column 7.

 

He was an instructor at New College School in Vancouver until he was presumed drowned in 1910.

Aubrey Neville St John Mildmay, an Anglican priest and writer, dedicated a long patriotic song called “Sea-Room” to “C.R. Draper, M.A., of ‘New College,’ Vancouver.”

Aside from the dedication, there is nothing obvious in the words of the song to show a connection with Mr. Draper.

Roy Sachs and John Moilliet

Two other instructors at New College were Roy Sachs and John Moilliet.

Roy Tessier Seaver Sachs was born in London, England, on November 9, 1887. After completing his education, he arrived in Canada about 1907. In September 1914, he enlisted in the Canadian Expeditionary Force to serve in the First World War. He died on June 13, 1916. He was buried in Lijssenthoek Military Cemetery in Belgium.

John Louis (or Lewis) Moilliet was born in Malvern, England, on March 26, 1882. In September 1915, he enlisted with the Canadian Expeditionary Force to serve in the First World War. He was wounded while with the Canadian troops in the attack on Vimy Ridge in 1917. After hospital treatment, he went back into service. He was killed in action on June 28 or 29, 1917. He was buried in Villers Station Cemetery, Pas de Calais, France.

1649 Nelson Street and Jack Benny

1649 Nelson Street was later the home of David Marks, the proprietor of the Canadian Pacific Junk Company. In 1922, a vaudeville comedian named Benny Kubelsky came to Vancouver with the Marx Brothers. He went to a Passover seder at the Marks home, where he met Sadie Marks, the 13-year-old daughter of David Marks. Several years later, in 1927, Benny and Sadie were married in Chicago. Benny became famous as the comedian Jack Benny. Sadie was known as Mary Livingstone.

Draper, Headmaster of the New Boys’ College, at 1649 Nelson street, disappeared from the Institution early yesterday morning, and It Is now feared that he has perished by drowning in English Bay, off Third Beach. A bundle of clothes found there about noon yesterday, served to finally solve the riddle of his absence and the case was reported to the police this morning, after other members of the college had searched for him in vain. Although he was known as a splendid swimmer, his friends have concluded that he must have been seized with a cramp while taking an early plunge, going down to his death beyond sight or sound of help.”
