2022 5" X 8" NFS Ballpointpen, Paper, Pine Off Cuts, Linseed Oil, Adhesive on Drywall "August 1952 Note - Dysart Bolender Farm Storage" is truly interesting because when I was helping my landlord do some demolition on a bunky on property that apparently was previously a building for storage on the Bolender Farm It's hard to say who owned the farm because George Milton Bolender was born on 19 February 1878, in Haliburton, Dysart and Others, Haliburton, Ontario, Canada, his father, George Wise Bolender, was 29 and his mother, Katherine Jennifer Brandon, was 25. He married Maryann Jane Gray on 20 May 1903, in Toronto, York, Ontario, Canada. They were the parents of at least 5 sons and 4 daughters. Some were born in Haliburton and some in the surrounding areas. He immigrated to New York, United States in 1943 and lived in York, York, Ontario, Canada in 1901 and Victoria, Ontario, Canada in 1911. The family was known for being all over the US as Canada. George Milton Bolender passed away on 28 March 1969, in Allison, Redstone Township, Fayette, Pennsylvania, United States, at the age of 91. It's quite something to learn about literally the land that I'm sitting on the sofa in a cozy home. Kinda wild and that dated note just made my mind go crazy about the history.
"Leslie Frost Centre (1944 - 2004) - Lesley + Chuck True Love Forever"
2022 5" X 7" NFS Pencil, Acrylic, White Chalk, Ballpointpen on Plywood with Pine Trim. "Leslie Frost Centre (1944 - 2004) - Lesley + Chuck True Love Forever" was a find going through wood to be repurposed and happened to find wood shelving from the Leslie Frost Centre (1944 - 2004). In 1944 University of Toronto Faculty of Forestry entered into a partnership to educate government personnel and university students. For many years the site was known as the Ranger School and later, the Ontario Forest Technical Training School. Many courses were taught to government personnel. Students from various faculties at the University came to the school each year on field trips. It's so cool to think about the history of the school and think about when Lesley + Chuck left their mark.
