Grief’s geography: Mapping 6,160 Torontonians killed in three wars

This amazing page from Global News has maps of all the Toronto men killed in three wars. If you zoom in to The Beach area, you can see the Malvern men and others who died. As decade(s) rep for 1903-1939, I am researching all of the Malvern men and know many of their stories. This is a great way to look at them collectively and remember.

Using data from card files and archives, Global News plotted Torontonian war casualties from World War One, World War Two and the Korean war.

Just published today, ahead of my talk on Tuesday at Beaches Library, 7pm.

In the Centenary of the First World War being marked between 2014 and 2018, no date will be more talked about than April 9, 1917, the day Canadian troops successfully attacked a seven-kilometre stretch of Northern France known as Vimy Ridge. Apart from the fact that upwards of 25,000 people are expe...

A friend of my father's sent this to him, not knowing that I went to Malvern. We've got a good thing going.
RIP Matt McLean. You will be missed.
Malvern band and choir members performed at the Light Up the Beach community event, on the boardwalk between the historic Leuty Lifeguard Station and the historic Balmy Beach Club. The event was enjoyed by all.
Hey - This is just a shot in the dark - but is Mr Lehrer still teaching at Malvern? Was looking to either stop by or get in touch.
My post yesterday was so long the video got buried...so here it is
Hello everyone. I was asked to post this here. Stephen spent four years at Malvern, graduating in 2017. He played a fairly mediocre saxophone in Mr Falla's class, but made up for by spending most waking hours playing guitar. Hi everyone. Here is Malvern grad Stephen Smith's most recent guitar video. This 3 minute piece is a copy of a hit from 2006 by Gnarles Barkley - they actually won a Grammy for album of the year, mostly on the strength of this song - called Crazy. See if you recognize it as a fingerstyle guitar arrangement. Stephen recently played to a very packed house at Castro's and can be seen at Beach House on Queen occasionally. He is a terrific talent, and a very hard working young man. Thanks for watching.
Ofsaa schedule has been released. Come on out and cheer Malvern on next week in St. Catharines. Onward Malvern!
Does Malvern ever have reunions
