Name of creator
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.
The materials were accessioned by Dalhousie University Archives in 1971 and 1977. The 1971 accession consists of the manuscript and was donated to the Archives by Norman J. Ritchie.
