Mostly Names - return to table of contents


Transcribed by Charles Dobie

           This is a transcript of an autograph book in the Dawson KERR collection in the Perth Museum. Dawson KERR, was a long-time pharmacist in the town of Perth, ON. Included in the collection are many military items which are mementoes of his service with the Canadian Army in World War 1.

           Most names and addresses occupy one or even two pages, being written quite large, and often accompanied by a poem or sentimental quotation (all of which are omitted here). Most of the listed men give addresses in eastern Ontario or Quebec, and all but two list their birth dates.

           The names are transcribed in the order found in the book. Surnames are in bold UPPER CASE. Explanatory notes are in [brackets]. Names are followed by a notation in (parens) which seems to have been added afterwards by Dawson Kerr.
