  • Notes 
    • F.W.R. Dickson, a descendant of a pioneer County farmer, served in World War I, graduated from the Ontario Agricultural College and the College of Education and taught science at the K-W Collegiate and Vocational School for forty-one years. He was director of the Academic School and football coach. He retired in 1965.

      Dickson was associated with Dr. A.E. Broome in the planning of Doon Pioneer Village. His research and knowledge of pioneers proved invaluable to the Waterloo County Hall of Fame. He edited the Waterloo Historical Society's annual volumes for twenty-five years.

      The K-W Field Naturalists, in conjunction with the Grand Valley Conservation Authority, named eighty-three acres, "The F.W.R. Dickson Wilderness Area," in recognition of his outstanding service.

      His interest in photography resulted in a very valuable collection of slides of historic Waterloo County buildings. He gave hundreds of free illustrated talks on Waterloo County history and natural history continuing his valuable work as a historian.
