  • Notes 
    • BOX, JOHN HOWARD was born in Calabogie on December 7, 1891.

      He received his education in that region, then attended Queen's University, graduating in 1915.

      He joined the Canadian Medical Corps, transferring to the British forces on arrival overseas. He had an impressive service record in France, Salonica and Russia. He was mentioned in dispatches on two occasions, and was awarded the Military Cross.

      For two years he was Port Health Officer in Shanghai, and then took postgraduate work in New York.

      He established a practice here on November 1, 1920, at 30 Water Street South, but in Hay of 1921 there was a notice that he was moving to Arnprior.

      He remained there until his death at the age of 81 years, after a life devoted to the community. The Arnprior Chronicle, introducing a lengthy obituary, described him as "The little man who probably did more for this town than any other. . . . "
