Biographical history

Freda Herrin Gilbert was born in 1907. She lived in West Vancouver, but matriculated from North Vancouver High School in 1924 as there were no matriculation high schools in West Vancouver at that time. In 1929, she obtained her certificate for a Primary Grade Teacher's course at summer school. She taught at Hollyburn School as early as 1925 until her marriage in 1933, which led to a move to Calgary. Upon her return to West Vancouver, she began teaching at Ridgeview Elementary School where her brother-in-law Harry Dickson was principal.
