  • Notes 
    • Muriel Clement was born in Woodstock in 1895 and came to Berlin with her parents in 1910.

      Hundreds of new Canadians who came to the Kitchener-Waterloo area from the 1930s to the 1950s owe a great debt to Muriel Clement for her work in founding and developing the Council of Friendship, of which, she was president for thirty years. Mutual understanding and brotherly love for all, regardless of race or creed she translated into action, breaking down barriers of language and prejudice for newcomers, helping them become established in their new homeland. In 1967 she was given the Centennial Award by the Kitchener-Waterloo Chapter of the Canadian Council of Christians and Jews for her work with the Council.

      She taught physical training at the Kitchener-Waterloo Collegiate and in public schools, and in 1915 married William P. Clement, a noted Kitchener lawyer.

      Clement also gave great service to the Women's Committee of the Kitchener-Waterloo Symphony Orchestra, for which she was made a life member, the Women's Canadian Club, and the Kitchener-Waterloo YWCA.

      She was named Woman of the Year by the Quota club in 1949.1a
