No. 2 course radio technicians at the University of Western Ontario

Atlas opens up old photo mystery

Lana Harrison found a 1942 university class photo in an atlas. She wonders if it belongs to someone in the Surrey/Langley area.

A Cloverdale woman who found a black and white class photo taken in 1942 tucked inside an atlas is hoping to reunite the picture with its rightful owner – or, failing that, a living relative.

Lana Harrison bought the atlas at a second hand store in Langley, which gives her hope that it may be a meaningful link with the past of someone living in the area.

Text printed on the photo (pictured at right) reads “No. 2 course radio technicians at the University of Western Ontario, F./O.R.W. Barton, Commanding Officer, April 1942.”

In pencil on the back, someone has written the first and/or last names of some of the graduates, commanding officers, professors and instructors, along with their home provinces or cities.

Those names with an apparent link to British Columbia are “Stan”, “Harrison”, “McAllister”, and “Goodfellow” from Vancouver.

If you would like more information, contact Harrison via the Reporter at editor@cloverdalereporter.com or 604-575-2400.
