A prominent businessman and member of the local community, he served as vice president of the Professional Photographers Association of Canada and was involved with the Progressive Conservative Party and the Rotary Club of Sydney. He was awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Golden Jubilee Medal in 2002 for outstanding contributions to his community. After his retirement from the business, his sons Blaise and John took over the Studios.

Custodial history

Scope and content

Item is a photograph of DOSCO blast furnace operations, showing the skip hoist leading to the furnace, left, with the bins, centre, and brown bridge above it. Stockpiles of raw materials for the furnace are at right. A grab on the brown bridge moved raw materials from the stockpiles into a transfer car. This dumped the material into the bins from where it was loaded into "skip buckets," moving up a skip hoist for eventual use in the furnace. Materials included coke, iron ore, and limestone.
