Name of creator
Richard Lloyd Bell was a graduate of Victoria College (B.A., Class of 1920) who served overseas in the Canadian military during World War I. He was born in Springford, Ontario and received his early education in Ingersoll. After attending Victoria College, 1914-1917, he entered the Canadian Army, and was sent to England, where he was posted at various training centres before the end of the War. He went on to a career in teaching in Toronto, which included being head of the mathematics department at Harbord Collegiate, and then holding the same position at Western Commerce.
