Biographical history

Norman J. Ritchie was born August 12, 1896 as the son of Henry Ritchie of New Glasgow, Nova Scotia. He studied science at Dalhousie University from 1915 to 1916, when he interrupted his education to enlist in the Canadian Overseas Expeditionary Force serving with the No. 2 Section of the 4th Division Ammunition Column. He returned to Dalhousie to study engineering in 1919 and in 1921 may have moved to Boston Tech to complete his education. He was employed by Robb Engineering ca. 1967-68. Ritchie passed away in Amherst, Nova Scotia in 1976.
