dc.description Group photo of seven gentlemen in front of a large marine painting (now at the NS provincial archives), probably at an alumni gathering. Far left is Ron Wallace (MLA 1970-1978, Halifax Mayor 1980-1991). Wallace was Maritime Middleweight and Light-Heavyweight Inter-Collegiate Boxing Champion in 1937 and was one of the first graduates of the (then) Royal Roads Naval Academy, serving in the Royal Canadian Navy 1942-1945. He was awarded an honourary Doctor of Civil Laws in 1995. Oddly, there is no graduation photo of Wallace in the 1939 Collegian yearbook. Some details credited to alumnus Ervin J. Doak (Commerce class of 1962).
