Full Text

The death occurred in Bradford, Ontario, on Monday of C.W. Harrison, for several years Principal of Bradford High School, aged 74 years. Funeral services will be held in Bradford Methodist Church on Wednesday at 2:30 o'clock, after which the body will be taken to Dunnville, Ont., for interment on Thursday, on the arrival of the C.N.R. at 11:09 a.m.

Mr. Harrison was widely known in educational and musical circles. He had held Principalships in high schools at Dunnville, Ont., in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, and for many years at Grimsby, Ont., prior to going to Bradford.

His interest in music, maintained by virtue of the pronounced reputation of his talented wife, Mme. Marie Harrison, a soprano soloist of considerable note throughout the Dominion, whose reputation extended to many of the larger cities in the United States and to Paris, France, where she studied for some years. In politics he was a staunch Liberal, a Methodist in religion. He was a member of Union Lodge No. 7, A.F. & A.M., in Grimsby.

Surviving are two sons, Roy L. in the Canadian National Railways Engineering Department, and Charles F. H., music writer and publisher, of Chicago.
