Full Text

The death occurred in Guy's Hospital, London, England, on February 2, of Ewart Campbell Cross of Toronto and Port Credit and one-time resident of Grimsby (known to hockey fans as "Curly Cross"). Connected with the Adult Education Division of the Ontario Education Department he had gone as one of two representatives from Canada to a UNESCO conference in Copenhagen, Denmark last May, had participated in other conferences and visited a number of Adult Education Centres in England and on the continent. When almost ready to return to Canada in July he suffered a severe coronary thrombosis from which he never recovered. His wife, Helen Cline, sister of Miriam and Eva Cline, of Grimsby, flew to London in October and remained there until his death. He has been buried in London.

Mr. Cross served in the Air Force in Canada in both World Ward and in rehabilitation work after World War II. For a number of years he was on the staff of the Royal Ontario Museum from which he was given leave of absence to do special work in the field of Adult Education.

Surviving besides his widow are two daughters, Peggy Cross Russell of St. John's Newfoundland and Barbara Cross, student at the University of Toronto, one grandson, and his mother, Mrs. James Cross of Grimsby Beach.
