|This picture is of the 1950-51
grade 4-5 class of Mr. Jack Powell at Inglewood Public School in
Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. At the time, I wrote on the back the
first names and last initials of those names I remembered. I
recall the names of two others besides myself: Barry Likeness and
Fran Stevenson. Both attended the same high school I did in
Ottawa (Glebe Collegiate) in the late 1950s, and Fran Stevenson became
Head Girl of Glebe in 1958-59. She eventually became a teacher in
the Hull area of Quebec. I am standing next to Mr. Powell.
The identification labels give last name (or initial) first then the
Like many students at the school, I was one of the children from the North West Air Command RCAF Station. I was in grade 4 at this school when this picture was taken, and started grade 5 before moving when my father was transferred. Mr. Powell was the first teacher I have clear recollection of, and was my favourite teacher throughout my school days, matching my good teacher I had in my last year of high school.
I met Mr. Powell again in 2001 and learned at that time that this was his first class as a teacher.
