TitleBoys who made good
AuthorWallace, Archer, b. 1884
PublisherMusson Book Co., Ltd.
Place of PublicationToronto, Ontario
Date1930
DescriptionThis book contains short biographies of men who overcame poverty and poor living conditions as young boys to become quite successful in adulthood; all gave back to society either through their work, philanthropy, or both. Chapter 12 focuses on Donald Smith, who left Scotland as a young man and came to Canada to work or the Hudson's Bay Company. The Governor of the company, Sir George Simpson, took a great dislike to Smith, and sent him to the company's post in Esquimaux Bay, in Northern Labrador, as punishment for a perceived wrongdoing. Smith persevered through many hardships, creating a comfortable home and new roads in this inhospitable place. He became a success through his involvement with the Canadian Pacific Railway and Empress Steamships, and was eventually knighted, and then given the title Lord Strathcona.
