Name of creator
Henry Lyman Corey was born in the Eastern Townships of Quebec in 1885. In 1911 he moved to Vancouver BC with his wife Gertrude. In 1915 he gained employment with the Vancouver Province as a printer and became active in Local 226 of the Vancouver Typographical Union. He was first elected as an Alderman in 1936 in Ward 12, Point Grey. The following year the election at large system was introduced and went out of office. He was re-elected in 1938 and topped the polls several times in subsequent elections. While in office he served as Chairman of the Social Services Committee and as Chairman of the Library Board. In 1942 he ran unsuccessfully as a Liberal candidate in a by-election for the Provincial Legislature. He passed away in office on August 27 1946.
The records were donated to Archives in 1996 by Corey's daughter Mrs. Ruth Corey Wilkins.
