  • Notes 
    • C.H. "Carlo" Boehmer of Berlin achieved fame as an amateur hockey player, an opera singer and an industrialist.

      He was a well-known hockey star and played football while attending the University of Toronto.

      Possessing a splendid voice, in 1906 he began to study comic and grand opera in Milan, Italy. He was a close friend of Enrico Caruso and Edward Johnson, at one time head of the Metropolitan Opera Company. He lived with Johnson in New York in 1902 and 1903 when they were both studying voice. He gave concerts in Italy and the United States. His success in Italian opera was spectacular and he toured South America with an Italian opera company. He was engaged by the Chicago Opera Company in 1919.

      In his later years he returned to Kitchener and joined the family business, A & C Boehmer Box Company, later becoming president.

      He was active in many community organizations.
