Max's Story -- Early Days
Canadian Flag

Max Reid was born in 1926 and raised in a succession of remote northern Ontario communities. His father worked for the railroad in Northern Ontario. Max's early schooling consisted of periodic classes in a railroad school car which would come and spend a week in various remote locations on a rotating basis. The teacher, his wife and kids lived in one end of the car and the rest of the train was the school room which handled all grades. To start from that background and end up where Max did is even more amazing.
