Notes
"On March 19 [2013], Mildred Richardson of Tavistock, Ont., reached her 100th birthday. She received a congratulatory certificate from Archbishop Fred Hiltz. Richardson has spent a lifetime serving the Anglican church. A former grade school teacher, in the 1940s she spent two summers plying the back roads of northern British Columbia in a two-ton Sunday school van. 'It wasn't for everyone. You were far away from the amenities of home and you had to keep in shape', recalls Richardson. As a 'vanner' she drove one of Eva Hasell's 24 vehicles that brought Anglican teaching to rural Canada from 1920 to the 1970s. 'If your van broke down on an isolated road, you had to wait until help came along', Richardson recalls. Luckily, the big Fords were equipped with beds. 'We had a little camping stove and we ate mostly out of cans', she says. 'Sometimes we got invited to dinner, and sometimes people held canned-goods "showers" for us'. Her 35-year teaching career included two years at Indian residential schools in Alberta. 'What upset me most was that the children were punished for speaking their native language', she says. 'You'd be surprised how quickly I could turn deaf'." [Text of entire article.]

"Eddie Dillon had never seen this family photo [included with article]. It was June 2011, and Dillon was at the Truth and Reconciliation Commission's (TRC) Inuvik national event when he spotted the snapshot of all seven Dillon brothers. They were standing, circa 1965, on the steps of Stringer Hall, and Anglican-run hostel in Inuvik". The photo was one of many taken by "a Stringer Hall nurse, Mossie Moorby, [who] had documented her life with the students in the 1960s and '70s. After Moorby died, her daughter gave some of these school photos to the General Synod Archives in Toronto. In spring 2011, after decades in boxes and albums, the photos journeyed back to Inuvik with Nancy Hurn, General Synod archivist. Hurn brought a display of school photos to this gathering, as she does for all national TRC events. It's part of the archives' work to make all records available to former residential school students". "The Dillon children grew up at Stringer Hall. Each September they flew four hours from their home in Tuktoyuktuk, N.W.T., to Inuvik, where they studied at Sir Alexander Mackenzie Day School and stayed at the hostel until June. Dillon told the TRC commissioners that his schooling was "a tool my mom and dad wanted me to have .. a tool I'm going to use for the rest of my life to get me further in where I want to go. Dillon now lives in Tuktoyuktuk and works as chair of the Northwest Territories Water Board. He said his 12 years at Stringer Hall gave him lifelong friends -- many now leaders in local organizations".

Notes
"We hear a lot in the Canadian media presently about the legal cases being brought forward by former Residential School pupils. Whilst there is no doubt that many unacceptable things happened, it is our belief that these were the exception and not the rule in our Anglican establishments in the north. It is unfortunate however that the negative reports we see and hear may make former workers feel that they should feel ashamed and that their ministries were and are not appreciated. This is not the case ! I would like to have the opportunity to record our thanks to them for all they contributed. We are anxious to learn of the names and addresses of any former Residential School, Hostel or Hospital employee so that we might keep in contact with them and support them in these difficult times as history seems to be judging them so harshly."

Bibliography: p. 110.
"This is a very personal account of what it was like to live in Canada's North in the middle of the 20th Century. The writer was twenty years old, and the Unknown beckoned. .... But this is not a definitive history. The story that follows describes the North through youthful eyes: the Indian Residential Schools at Carcross, Y.T. and at Moose Factory, and the booming mining town of Yellowknife, N.W.T. It is as accurate as the writer can make it, with apologies for any memories that may have been clouded by the years. Most of the names are valid, but there are instances where they have may been changed to avoid embarrassment to those who shared the stresses of isolation, or to their families". -- Preface.
