Elora, Ontario, Canada.

Bruce & Catharina Hogarth were married on July 17, l982 in Hillsburgh, Ontario, Canada.  Until recently, they had a wonderful collection of Antique Arms & Armour which they shared with the public at Hogarth House in Elora, Ontario.  Sadly, the museum was to close in August 2002 because it was no longer commercially viable.

A personal note from Catharina:

On the day that Bruce and I were married, after the minister declared us husband and wife, we turned to face the others present and Bruce's dad came to me, hugged and kissed me and said "Welcome to the Hogarth Family". He said this with such depth of meaning and pride that I'll remember that moment until the day I die.

My father-in-law passed away in April of 1986. Here is a quote from The Northern Miner of June 2, 1986.

Donald Hogarth, an experienced mines manager, and veteran of the Second World War, is dead at 68. During the war, Mr. Hogarth was a major with the Queens Own Rifles, and in 1948 he graduated from Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario., with a B.Sc. in mining engineering. He has worked for several Canadian mining companies, most notably, Caminco, Ltd. and Sulpetro Minerals (which was sold to Novamin Resources in Dec, l985).

He was General mines manager at M.J. Boylen interests in Newfoundland and manager of mines development at Abitibi-Price, a Toronto based lumber company. Mr. Hogarth also managed the Barnat mine in Malartic, Que. and Terra Mines in the North West Territories. He was largely responsible for the driving of the Grand Duke tunnel at the Grand Duke mine in Stewart, B.C.

Mr Hogarth joined Sulpetro Minerals in 1980 as manager of mines development, and retired in 1983. He is survived by his wife, Mary Ann and son, Bruce.
