January 11 Harry Hooper died in Vancouver,
aged 81. When he offered himself and his wheezy, two-cylinder
Ford for hire in 1903, Tom Hawthorn has written, he
became Vancouver's first taxi driver. Seven years later, he opened
Harry Hooper Ltd., the city's first taxi company. Born in Napanee,
Ont., he arrived in Vancouver with his mother in 1886. His was a
wanderer's soul, so he made busy by driving cattle in the Cariboo,
by joining the Klondike gold rush, and by touring Asia with a troupe
of professional cyclists. Handsome Harry, as he called himself,
died after a lengthy illness in an office he used as an apartment
in the Ray Building, 144 West Hastings.
January 16 The Hastings East Community Centre
January 27 This was the last day of the inquiry
into the activities of Vancouver police chief Walter Mulligan. (See
1955 for details on the inquiry.) The inquirys head, R.G.
Tupper, QC, later found that, with the exception of Sgt. Leonard
Cuthbert and Mulligan, he couldn't be sure of anyone else's guilt.
What followed led reporter Jack Webster to label
the commission a whitewash. The Attorney General's office
ruled that it didn't have enough evidence to support Tupper's finding
of corruption and could not take the case to court.
That meant Mulligan would not be charged, and was
in fact free to return to Canada at any time. He would do just that
in May of 1963, retiring to Oak Bay, accompanied by his wife Violet,
who had stood by his side during the whole business.
Nobody ever went to jail.
Mulligan died in Oak Bay in May of 1987. His obit
appeared in the Sun on Page 19. The story was, after all, more than
30 years old by then.
The story is told in The Mulligan Affair: Top
Cop on the Take by Ian Macdonald and Betty OKeefe, published
in 1997 by Heritage House. Jack Websters and Ray Munros
autobiographies also treat the case at some length.
January 30 The Province reported that
$90 million tourist dollars came into the Province in 1955, $50
million of that into Vancouver. . . . that adds up to 10 times
as much as the wealth produced by gold mines in B.C.; almost three
times as much as the salmon industry, and double Vancouvers
record construction program.
February 4 The Vancouver Suns
Bill Fletcher, commenting on the tourism figures cited above, figures
Vancouverites spend 19 cents per capita to bring in its $50 million;
Victoria spends 98 cents; San Diego, about the same size as Vancouver,
46 cents; Miami $1.52; Tucson $2.22; Palm Springs $8.60; Honolulu
$1.30. Included in the many plans is a convention bureau set-up
that could bring many millions to the Vancouver area in the normally
slack winter months.
Also February 4 My Fair Lady premiered
in New York.

March 20 The Province reported that
three UBC studentsJane Gordon, Sharon Engelbeen and Debbie
Wilkinshave mastered 1,000 facts about Vancouver. Their
teacher is Mrs. Margaret Jones, staff supervisor of the Greater
Vancouver Tourist Association. Among the facts:
- 3,929 residents of Russian extraction
- 154 people who speak only French
- West Vancouver covers 32 square miles
- bank clearings in 1954 were $5 billion
- 32 dance academies
- 9 detective agencies
- 2,225 apartment houses
- 7 pawn brokers
- 14 miles of waterfront
- an average of 1,663 hours of sunshine annually.
March 29 Former BC premier Duff Pattullo died,
aged 83. He was born January 19, 1873 in Woodstock, Ontario. He
headed west as a young man, worked in Dawson City government in
1897, later buying real estate. In 1908 he moved to Prince Rupert,
where in 1916 he was elected a Liberal MLA. He served for 12 years
as minister of lands responsible for forestry. Pattullo was Leader
of the Opposition from 1928 to 1933. He has been called the most
significant of B.C. premiers. He was in office from 1933 to 1941.
Robin Fisher has written (1991) a fine biography: Duff Pattullo
of British Columbia.
April 3 A bank robbery shoot-out at Cariboo

Pacific Coast Leaguelose 2-1 to the San Francisco Seals in
the club's home debut. The Mounties had been the Oakland Oaks. They
would finish dead last (pitcher Ernie Funk was 1-19) in the eight-city
circuit. At the end of the season, the Mounties were sold for $150,000
to a syndicate of businessmen, including Nat Bailey of White Spot
fame. Shares in the club cost $25. Among the shareholders was Premier
April Western Business and Industry
magazine, in an article by J. V. Hughes, reported: During
the past 12 months, the [Vancouver Tourist] association office replied
to more than 13,000 direct mail inquiries, and answered personal
inquiries over the counter of more than 67,000. (Long ago we stopped
counting our incoming phone calls.)
May 5 Charles Pop Foster, boxing
promoter, died in Glendale, California, aged about 82. He was born
c. 1874 in Leeds, Eng. "His father," writes Constance
Brissenden, "ran a carnival fight booth in England; his uncle
was a lightweight champion. He fought in the Boer War and WWI. He
worked as a fighter and a stevedore. In 1923 Foster discovered future
world welterweight champion Jimmy McLarnin (b. Dec. 17, 1905 in
Ireland), selling newspapers in Vancouver. At 26, under Fosters
tutelage, McLarnin won the world welterweight title. Foster's protege
was described as the greatest fighter, pound for pound, in
the prize ring today.
May 22 The newly-appointed manager of the
Convention Department of the Vancouver Tourist Bureau was Clarke
Todd. He told the papers he aimed to double Vancouvers convention
May 26 The Vancouver Sun reported:
Average stay of the pleasure tourist here is 4.77 days. He
spends $63.43. The business tourist spent more ($114.91) and
stayed longer (5.44 days). In 1955, the Sun said, 65.2 per
cent of tourists travelling through Vancouver were from the U.S.
12.5 per cent had complaints: inadequate street and directional
signs, poor weather, poor roads. Two out of three parties were in
Vancouver for the first time.
June 15 The Stanley Park Aquarium opened,
with the ribbon cut by Fisheries Minister James Sinclair. Sinclairs
seven-year-old daughter Margaret was on hand. Fifteen years later,
she would become Mrs. Pierre Trudeau. The Aquarium in Stanley
Park, wrote Dr. Murray Newman, its first director, is
Canada's largest marine life exhibit and has been recognized by
the federal government as Canada's Pacific National Aquarium . .
. Over the years it has grown slowly from modest beginnings to an
internationally recognized institution that features major aquatic
mammals and significant research and education programs. Its history
started in 1951 when a private non-profit society, the Vancouver
Public Aquarium Association, was formed with downtown businessman
Carl L.A. Lietze as the first President. Capital funds ($300,000)
were obtained from the three governments, and the Aquarium opened
on June 15, 1956 as the first public aquarium to be built in the
June 22 Burnaby's stylish new Municipal Hall
opened near Deer Lake in the geographical centre of the municipality.
Architectural historian Dr. Harold Kalman had some interesting thoughts
on the building: South Burnaby was the original population
and economic centre of Burnaby, and so the first municipal hall
was built at Kingsway and Edmonds in 1899. By the time the building
was outgrown, North Burnaby had become a force to reckon with. Since
neither neighborhood would agree to building a new municipal hall
on the other's turf, the compromise saw the new facility being located
in the geographical centre of Burnaby, near Deer Lake. The design
was no compromise at all. Fred Hollingsworth, one of the pioneers
of the new West Coast style, produced an understated masterpiece
of modernism, a two-storey structure whose crisp rectangular design
symbolized Burnaby's progressive leadership.
June 27 Deejay Red Robinson hosted Vancouvers
first rock and roll concert as Bill Haley and the Comets blew em
away at Kerrisdale Arena. An estimated 6,000 fans screamed for more.
The review the next day in The Vancouver Sun described the
concert as the ultimate in musical depravity.
June 30 A tourist information booth at Marine
and Capilano in North Vancouver opened today. The first attendant
was Frank Wilson. Theres a booth there to this day.
June Vancouver, sports journalist
Jack Keating has written, had what was termed its first Dream
Game, a game between two professional soccer teams rather
than a professional against an amateur all-star team. Aberdeen played
Everton to a 3-3 draw at Empire attracting 18,000 in the pouring
rain. Moscow Lokomotive also came here in 1956 to play the
Vancouver All-Starsthey were the first sports group to come
to North America from the Soviet Union.
July 5 Tim (Rochfort Henry) Sperling, electrical
engineer, died in Vancouver, aged 80. Constance Brissenden writes:
Born February 9, 1876 in Yorkshire, Eng., he came to B.C.
in 1896 and joined the BC Electric Railway the following year. He
became general manager of the company in 1905. He was also the general
manager of Vancouver Gas, Victoria Gas, Vancouver Power and Vancouver
Island Power. He replaced coal-burning plants with hydro-electric
systems on the mainland and on Vancouver Island. In April 1912 Sperling
set a five-cent fare for united tram lines in South Vancouver-Vancouver-Burnaby-Point
Grey. He returned to England in 1914, on the outbreak of war, and
was active in aircraft production. He moved to Drummondville, Que.,
as vice president of Canadian Celanese Ltd., later returned to live
in Vancouver. Burnaby's Sperling Street is named for him.

August 23 Marilyn Bell, who at age 16 had
become famous in 1954 for being the first person to swim across
Lake Ontario, and the youngest person to swim across the English
Channel (July 31, 1955), became the first woman to swim the Strait
of Juan de Fuca. The 18.3-mile (29.4 k/m) crossing, her second attempt,
took her 11 hours and 35 minutes. Her swim was from Ediz Hook, near
Port Angeles, Washington to Clover Point, Victoria on Vancouver
Island. (The word first regarding the Juan de Fuca swim
may be inaccurate: Bell may have been the second woman to
perform the feat. If you know the answer, please tell

mobbed by fans and a near riot erupted during his show at Kerrisdale
September 25 Power was turned on in a new
150,000-volt hydro cable laid in the summer between the mainland
and Vancouver Island.
October Former Vancouver mayor (1913 to 1914)
Truman Smith Baxter died, aged 88. He was born, writes
Donna Jean McKinnon, November 24, 1867 on a farm near Carlingford,
Fullerton Township, Perth County, Ontario. He arrived in BC in 1890.
Baxter, a former teacher and merchant and Vancouver alderman (1900,
1905-06, 1912) was unfortunate in coming to the office of mayor
just as the province, and indeed the rest of the country, fell into
an economic slump that lasted until the middle years of World War
I. All civic departments were reorganized to adapt to the financial
crisis and war priorities. At the outbreak of the war, city council
voted a two per cent cut in the pay of civil servants, but also
formed a Charities and Relief Committee to look after those most
in need. Mayor Baxter claimed it was really his idea, not Gerry
McGeer's, to locate the new city hall in Mount Pleasant.
October Chunky (Charles Nanby
Wynn) Woodward, 32, grandson of chain founder Charles A. Woodward
and son of William Culham Woodward, who had joined the staff of
his fathers stores in 1946, was named president of the chain
on his fathers retirement.
November 4 Racer Ross Bentley was born.
November 5 Edgar George Baynes, contractor
and hotelier, died in Vancouver, aged about 86. He was born on a
farm in 1870 in Dunmow, Essex, England, ran away from home at age
13. He was one of the first homesteaders in the Squamish River Valley.
He served with the 2nd Essex Rifles (1887-88), and with 5th Canadian
Garrison Artillery in Vancouver (1894-99). Baynes came to Vancouver
as a contractor in 1888, and in 1893 with partner William McLeod
Horie, established Baynes and Horie. That firm built many Vancouver
and B.C. public schools. In 1906 he established the Port Haney Brick
Co. Baynes built the Grosvenor Hotel (once on Howe Street, now vanished)
in 1913, and when the client couldnt pay for the work took
the hotel over and worked as manager. The Vancouver Historical Society
remembers Baynes with real warmth, because he provided a meeting
place for them at no charge for more than 20 years. He was a parks
commissioner for 15 years.
November 28 Fred Hume was elected Vancouver's
mayor for a fourth consecutive term, the first man to accomplish
December 5 The first Hungarian refugees, fleeing
their country after Soviet troops occupied it, arrived in Vancouver.
See the January 24, 1957 entry regarding the faculty and students
of the Sopron Forestry School.
One of the people who came was Professor Elod Macskasy
(1919-1990). He taught mathematics at UBC for more than 30 years,
and was B.C.'s top chess player for most of that time. He would
win the Canadian Open Championship in 1958 and had a great influence
on young B.C. chess players. Macskasy played on a number of Canadian
Olympic chess teams. In the late 50s and early 60s,"
wrote chess enthusiast Nathan Divinsky, "he often could be
found at the old Heidelberg Restaurant on Robsonstrasse, the hangout
for European immigrants.
Another refugee who arrived this year was sculptor
Elek Imredy, born April 13, 1912 in Pest, Hungary. His most well-known
local work is Girl in Wet Suit, seen by thousands as they
pass by on the Stanley Park Seawall.
December 9 All 62 people (59 passengers, three
crew) aboard a Trans-Canada Airlines DC-4 Northstar heading to Calgary
died when the plane slammed into Mt. Slesse, in the Cascade Mountains
near Chilliwack. Fifty minutes out of Vancouver the pilot had reported
a fire in the No. 2 engine, and was turning back. Flying on three
engines, and 12 miles south of the assigned airway, the aircraft
encountered a difficulty of some kind which led to the loss of control
by the crew. The plane, wrote Province journalist Don
Hunter, remained hidden under deep snow, its disappearance
a mystery for six months before the spring thaw revealed its presence.
The wreckage was found on May 12, 1957 by a party of climbers who,
on their return to Vancouver, notified the Province. The paper ran
an Extra edition May 13 announcing the discovery of the wreckage.
(The first thing the climbers found was the planes navigation
map.) Were indebted to site visitor Andy Hill for expanding
on this entry. One of the things he told us was that the Provinces
Paddy Sherman, an experienced mountaineer, made subsequent visits
to the crash site and testified at length before the resulting Coroner's
inquiry as an expert witness.
It was the worst air crash in Canada's history to that time. The
wreckage still remains at the site, which is now a memorial.
December 22 A French adventurer completed
a swim of the Fraser River from Prince George to New Westminsters
Pattullo Bridge. (NOTE: in December!) A fellow named Fin Donnelly
would do the same thing in 1995.
December 28 One of the odder human dramas
to be played out on the local scene was the arrival of Christian
George Hanna, a man without a country, who arrived in
Vancouver as a working stowaway aboard the Norwegian freighter Gudveig.
Hanna, 23, was not sure where he was born, nor who were his
father and mother. He had been wandering around the world
for months, unable to disembark because he had no papers to tell
who he was. Something about his story captured the imagination and
sympathy of Canadians, and a nationwide campaign began to persuade
Canada to take him in. And we did . . . until we discovered Hanna
was actually Ahmed Aouad, an Egyptian. Then he got into trouble
with convictions for indecent assault and public intoxication. He
December The McCleery farmhouse, built in
1873, was demolished by the Vancouver Parks Board. The McCleery
family farmed right up to this year. The farm became a golf course.
In 1985, the Kerrisdale Historical Society would erect a memorial
cairn at the site.
A roof is added to Capilano Stadium.
After Frank Griffiths, a chartered accountant, bought
CKNW in 1956 he began to turn it into an empire. He left the running
of NW to its capable staff, but worked behind the scenes to
establish a very much larger company that eventually became Western
International Communications (radio, TV, cable and more).
The first class of certified general accountants
began at UBC. Although 107 students began, only 28 graduated and
just two of those were women. One of them was Lucille Johnstone,
who would become a legend in B.C. business. She began working in
1944 as a tugboat operator for Rivtow, went on to become president
and chief operating officer. By the time she left Rivtow in 1989,
after 45 years, the company had reached sales of $250 million and
had 1,500 employees. She died December 31, 2004 at age 80. See this
The Workmens Compensation Board reported that,
for the first time, the construction industry passed the lumber
industry in number of injuries.
I.A. Tiny Rader was hired as sales manager
of Allen-Bradley Canadas Vancouver office. (Its a very
big company, manufacturers of electric and electronic components.)
He will later move to the States and become A-Bs Chairman
of the Board. Rader is important in BCs sport history for
his early support for the B.C. Lions. (And see the 1941 chronology
for an earlier connection between Rader and football in this area.)
Harry Schiel arrived in Vancouver from Vienna. He
will later launch Playboard, a monthly magazine distributed
at many entertainment venues in Vancouver.
Dr. Gordon Shrum, already the head of UBCs
physics department, became the universitys dean of graduate
studies. He would hold both posts to 1961, then become the first
chancellor of Simon Fraser University.

space in city hall since 1935, moved to its own building when Burnabys
new city hall opened.
Burnaby Library was formally established.
The PGE Railway (now BC Rail) was completed from
Squamish to Horseshoe Bay along Howe Sound, and the Horseshoe Bay
to North Vancouver section was rebuilt. The railway had finally
fulfilled its mandate to connect the Port of Vancouver to Prince
A new Community Centre opened in Cloverdale, four
years after the old Opera House burned down.
Vancouvers Glendalough Place was named for
the old family home of Alderman Anna Sprott. The meaning is lake
in the glen.
Vancouver City Council, Ed Starkins has written,
attentive to the complaints of downtown businessmen who had
been losing trade to suburban shopping centres, rezoned the West
End [in 1956] to allow significantly higher population density.
Artists' renderings made the proposed high rise architecture look
classy and attractive. To avoid overcrowding, broad areas of open
space, determined by a mathematical formula, would surround each

When North Vancouver resident R.A. (Bob) Nelson
purchased the land in 1956, Lions Bay was accessible only by water.
The community consisted of a few summer cottages and an open space
known as St. Mark's picnic grounds. But Nelson's dream of a complete
residential community coincided with the extension of the Pacific
Great Eastern (today BC Rail) line from West Vancouver to Squamish
in 1956 and the construction of the Seaview (today Sea-to-Sky) Highway
two years later.
Maxs full article can be read in The Greater
Vancouver Book, Page 117. Lions Bay was incorporated in 1971.
