  • Notes 
    • James William Connor was one of Waterloo County's outstanding scholars and had the unusual distinction of graduating from the University of Toronto with first class honors in Classics at the age of sixteen.

      At the age of eight he immigrated with his parents from Shillelagh, County Wicklow, Ireland, to Niagara Falls and already showing signs of a brilliant mind began the study of Latin at the St. Catharines Grammar School at the age of nine. He continued to excel in all his studies and served as principal of the Berlin High School from 1871 to 1901.

      Connor was widely known as an outstanding scholar and teacher of the Classics, English Literature, Sanskrit and other
      languages.1a
