Harry and Betty (Anglin) McBride (123321)
Betty Anglin, born in Kingston in 1931, went to Toronto Bible College (TBC) following graduation from Kingston CVI in 1949. On her return as a TBC graduate to Kingston she married, in 1955, fellow KCVI and Queen's graduate, Harry McBride. Harry received an Industrial Relations degree from Queen's introductory IR program. After several years in Personnel Supervision with CIL and the Royal Victoria Hospital in Montreal, Harry joined the Canadian Division of Abbott Laboratories. In 1972 he accepted responsibility for Abbott's Personnel and Labour Relations functions in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa with headquarters in Rome and later Paris. This was followed by 14 years at Abbott's International Headquarters in North Chicago before his 1992 retirement.
Throughout their lives he and Betty were highly committed members of the Salvation Army in each of the cities in which they lived, running drop-in centres, playing in the Army band, directing the Sunday School and directing a myriad of other Army activities. Harry enjoyed a short retirement after 1992, succumbing in 1999 to Lou Gherig's disease. Betty continued to live in Chicago, near their son Peter and his wife and two children, following Harry's death. Their daughter, Blythe, lived for several years in Kentucky, preceding a move with her family to Pennsylvania in 2000, and then a return to Chicago and a home near both her mother and brother.
Bob and Marilynne (Neasmith) Anglin (123322)
Bob Anglin, born in 1932 at Kingston General Hospital, after graduation from KCVI and then from Queen's with a degree in mathematics and economics in 1955, was immediately employed by Empire Life Insurance Company, with head offices in Kingston. After several years with Empire Life he left them to join International Business Machines (IBM) where he spent the remainder of his working career, living at different times in Ottawa, Montreal, Winnipeg and Toronto (twice). He finished his IBM career in Toronto with retirement in 1992. His retirement activity in Toronto involved his master skills as a cabinet maker. He did repair work for antique dealers, and local residents in the Annex area of Toronto who wanted to match wall trim, cabinets or door or window frames.
In 1956 he married Marilynne Neasmith, whose parents had been good friends of his father and mother, and had a family of five children. Marilynne, during their retirement, sold real estate for a time and then worked in two nearby shops, one selling antiques and the other small household items. In 2007, after living for 26 years in the Annex area of downtown Toronto, they sold their three-story house there and moved to a beautiful one-acre property in the town of Port Hope, about an hour east of Toronto.

Bill Anglin, born in Kingston in 1936, went from graduation from KCVI to Queen's where he graduated in 1959 with a mathematics and science degree and proceeded to Toronto to acquire qualifications as a high school specialist mathematics teacher. He began his teaching career in Gananoque Secondary School in 1959, followed by a move in 1960 to Queen Elizabeth CVI in Kingston, where he bacame the Mathematics Department Head in 1963. In 1966 he joined the then Ontario Department of Education as a mathematics inspector and program consultant working from their Regional Offices in Kingston, and then Ottawa when the Kingston office was permanently closed in 1977. During this period he obtained an M.Ed. from Queen's University. In 1979 he returned to the Frontenac County Board of Education (FCBE), [which, through amalgamation with the Lennox and Addington Board of Education in 1998, became the Limestone District School Board], as a Superintendent of Curriculum and, at retirement in 1992, had been the Superintendent of Human Resources for the Board for three of his last four years.
In 1958 he married Carol Ann Webster who was a 1958 Queen's graduate with a B.A. and BPHE, and, briefly, a secondary school PHE teacher at KCVI. The rapid arrival of a first child in 1959 cut her teaching career short and she became a full time homemaker, managing and overseeing the growth and development of a family which increased, by 1972, to six children. In 1984, once the youngest child had reached high school age, Carol Ann was ready to get back into outside-the-home activity and joined the Ongwanada Resource Centre Board of Governors. Ongwanada provides support services and group home accommodation and services for children and adults with developmental problems. She served on the board continuously from 1984 until 2009, serving one two-year term as the Board's President.
Bill retired from the FCBE in 1992 and as a retirement activity, drove a limousine for 15 years for ExecuTrans, a local Kingston limo company, and also operated his own limousine service at the same time. A second retirement in July of 2007, from the limousine company, was followed immediately by becoming a volunteer driver for the Canadian Cancer Society driving patients to and from their appointments, both at the local Cancer Centre of South Eastern Ontario and to more distant appointments at Toronto and Ottawa hospitals. In 2010 Bill took on additional volunteer work, assisting The Salvation Army in their 'Gathering Place' food bank and community centre at 342 Patrick St in Kingston. In 2011 Bill and Carol Ann are still living in their Mackenzie Crescent, Kingston home which they bought in 1961 and enlarged in 1969 to accommodate their growing family.

Anne Anglin (124431), daughter of Gerald and Betty Anglin, has had a distinguished career in the theatre. Both she and her husband, Paul Thompson, shared in the presentation of The Stone Angel at Theatre Passe Muraille in Toronto in the early 90s. A 1993 review in The Toronto Star1 by Vit Wagner, "Stone Angel star stoops to conquer" said,
Anne Anglin (124431)
"... there's more than acting in the performer's [Anglin's] transformation. All of the stooping required to achieve a degree of nonagenarian verisimilitude has left the 51-year old Anglin feeling a bit stooped herself.
" 'I'm using muscles in a different way,' she says. 'And sure enough, my lower back went out. And now the pain is moving into my left hip. I was stretching in between shows but it didn't seem to work. Now, every time I get up, I walk like an old lady. It's horrible. I'll probably need a hip replacement by the time I'm 55.' ...
"... The current revival of The Stone Angel ... has been a hit since the nearly sold-out first preview back at the beginning of February . And now the show has been extended to May 2.
"Co-incidentally, that means that a planned season-ending production of The Urban Donnelleys, directed by Anglin's husband, former Passe Muraille artistic director Paul Thompson, has had to be postponed until the fall.
"The Stone Angel is the second adaptation Anglin has appeared in since returning last year to her native Toronto from Montreal, where Thompson served for a number of years as English head at the National Theatre School. She played Mottyl the cat in a stage version of Timothy Findley's Not Wanted On The Voyage at the St. Lawrence Centre a year ago."
Doris and Cameron Stewart (15332) had six children in eight years, the first and second and the fifth and sixth being sets of twins.
David Keith Stewart (153321) was born in Kingston June 27, 1946, the first of twin boys. His middle name was given in memory of a good friend of his father's, Keith Teal, who was killed in a flying accident while training with the RCAF. David grew up in Kingston, Hamilton, Toronto, and Oshawa, attending local schools in each city as the family followed Cam's career. He graduated from R. S. McLauglin Collegiate and Vocational Institute in Oshawa in 1965. Subsequently, he enrolled in Business Administration with a Computer Science major at Ryerson Polytechnical Institute in Toronto, graduating in 1968.
Following his graduation, David worked for a number of private companies in what was then the new field of computer technology. In 1975, he married Christine Shaw, with whom he had a son, James, in 1979. A developing interest in antiques prompted David to join a family friend, Dr Ted Watt, opening an antique store in Brooklyn, called The Brooklyn Antiquarian, in 1977 as a full-time occupation. He and his wife, Christine, separated and divorced in 1981.
David married Jamie Parent in Montreal in 1984, had a son, Matthew in 1984, then separated and divorced in 1990.
In 1996, David met Shirley Boddingtons, who was operating a travel agency in Brooklyn, having graduated from the University of Western Ontario, attended Teachers' College, and obtained a Diploma in Travel. They lived for a time on a farm nearby, then moved to a country home near Seagrave, ON. David and Shirley were married in 2003. She is a partner in a Port Perry travel agency and David continues in the antique business.
John Cameron Stewart (153322), David's twin brother, came as a surprise to his parents because neither they nor their doctor were aware until his arrival that she was carrying twins. During his last years of high school John met Rose Somborski and, after several years of dating, were married in 1970 while they were both at university.
John graduated from R. S. McLaughlin CVI in 1965 and attended Queen's University, receiving a Bachelor of Applied Science degree in 1969 amd a Masters degree in 1970. Rose graduated from the University of Windsor. They lived for a short time in Toronto, then moved to Delft, Holland while John took a special program in coastal engineering. John died in Holland in March of 1972. Rose came back to Canada and is living in a centruy farm house near Harrowsmith, ON. She is an artist and a teacher in Napanee.
Catherine Lesley Stewart (153323) was born in 1946 in Kingston. She, too, attended schools in several different cities, graduating from Oshawa's R. S. McLauglin CVI in 1965. She graduated, with honours, in 1968 from the Fashion Design Program at Ryerson Polytechnical Institute in Toronto, worked for a short time in Toronto, then moved to Montreal for a position in the fashion industry.
While in Montreal she met Robert Baugniet, whom she married in 1971. Their first daughter, Jessica, was born in Montreal and their second, Belinda, was born in Ottawa in 1978. She and Robert separated in 1980 and Catherine moved with the girls to Toronto.
Catherine maintained her interest in fashion and design throughout her time in Ottawa and designed and made children's clothing. In Toronto, she developed her own line of children's clothing and taught fashion design at the International Academy of Design at George Brown College and Sheridan College. In 1988 she met Peter Cordy and established a home with him in Toronto. Peter ran a publishing business and, after its sale, established Klik Communications in which he is the majority partner and President. They were married in Mexico in 2002.
Douglas Colville Stewart (153324)was born in Hamilton in 1951 and was another Oshawa R. S. McLaughlin student, but graduated from Nepean H.S. in Ottawa while his father was the Nepean Deputy MOH. Doug attended Queen's, graduating in history in 1973, followed by a year working in retail, then a three year Diploma of Museum Technology at Algonquin College in Ottawa, graduating in 1977. A later addition to his curriculum vitae was a Masters of Public Administration from Queen's in 1986.
In 1977 he began working for the federal government's Parks Canada, at Fort George National Historic Site in Niagara on the Lake, where he met Elizbeth Rogers, who graduated in 1977 from Brock University. They were married in Niagara on the Lake in 1979. His Parks Canada job has taken them to Dawson City, Yukon; Fort St. James, BC; Peterborough, ON; Jasper, AB; Edmonton, AB; Haines Junction, Yukon; Fort Smith, NWT; Calgary, AB; and nnow in Merrickville, ON where he is the Superintendent of the Rideau Canal with the management responsibility for all of Eastern Ontario.

Elizabeth started working with children with special needs while they were in Fort Smith, continued it in Calgary and Ontario, and currently works as a Rsource Consultant with the Inclusive Child Care Program of Developmental Services of Leeds and Grenville Counties.
As part of an interest in genealogy, Doug has authored the book, Anglin-Stewart Family History2, from which all of this information about his family was obtained.

In 1963, following Ann's death in 1961, Tom married Elizabeth Fulcher and they had three girls, Josephine, Sherron and Christina.
Bill, married four times, had three children: a son, Jesse, and two daughters, Sarah and Rebecca. He studied at Oxford and then received a PhD in Mathematics and Philosophy from McGill. He taught at several colleges and wrote magazine articles and a few books on the subjects of mathematics and philosophy, all published under the name W. S. Anglin. A Google search for "W. S. Anglin mathematics" gives rise to a list of many of his writings. His last job was working with a pharmaceutical company in the United States. He died from a brain tumor at the age of 55 in 2004. Sarah is graduating from Westmount High School in 2013.

Her daughter Lindsay, not only helps in all aspects of Sunset Farms but has completed her Bachelor of Science degree from the University of Ottawa, and is studying chiropractic medicine in NY State. 'Grits', a shortened version of Margaret, was a nickname given to her in her teens by her horse-crazy friends, and is still used by her friends and family.
