History / Biographical
Henry Roe was born in St. Thomas, Ontario, on June 11, 1866, to Charles Roe and Zebee Mary Roe (nee Kains). On June 11, 1913, he married Ethel E. Jones in St. Thomas, Ontario. They lived at 9 Drake Street and, later 59 Metcalfe Street, in St. Thomas. They had two daughters. He died in 1942 at 75 years old. The Roe family were among the first residents in the southwest section of St. Thomas, off Wilson Avenue to present day Sunset Drive. Henry Street, one of the earliest established streets in this area, was named after Henry Roe. As a child, Roe was educated at the local public schools and attended St. Thomas Collegiate Institute. In 1882, he joined his father in the grain business as a clerk, then joined the Michigan Central Railroad as an employee in 1888, where he worked as a timekeeper. In 1902, he left the railway service to establish an insurance and real estate business with the Canada Life Insurance Company, in which he developed a significant clientele. Roe was an active member of his community and served in various capacities for many organizations. He served as Chairman of the Board of Education, member of the Library Board, member of the Cemetery Board, Warden of Trinity Church, and was a member of all branches of Masonry in the London District, including the Shrine, Knights of Pythias, Knights of the Maccabees, and the Independent Order of Odd Fellows. Roe had an interest in photography and was a member of the St. Thomas Camera Club. He was also interested in history and was revered for his knowledge of local anecdotes and historical events. He took interest in the preservation of the Old St. Thomas Church, where he once attended services and played the organ as a young child.

Caption from St. Thomas Times-Journal: "They Showed the Right Spirit: As a result of efforts put forth by a group of pupils from Wellington Street Public School, $15.56 was raised for the United Home Services drive at a carnival held at the rear of the home of Mr. and Mrs. Harold Goodwin, 93 Hincks street, on Saturday afternoon. They are shown here standing behind the counter of the refreshment booth where hot dogs, chocolate bars and chocolate milk were sold readily by Bob Goodwin to a large crowd of patrons, some of whom were also caught by the camera. Standing, left to right, are: Jimmy Geddes, Ken Rankin, Bob Goodwin, Dick Cutler, Don Mortin, Lynn Goodwin, Judy Kennedy. All but the last one were responsible for organizing and running the affair. Patrons sitting in front are, left to right, Marjorie Treleaven, Penny Preston, Molly Metcalfe, Mac Watson, Carolyne Derrough. Among the youngest present was Mary Kennedy, seen here sitting on the table still clutching her bottle of milk. Other features of the afternoon were boxing matches between Dave Gilbert and Harold McCart; wrestling matches between Dick Cutler and Ken Rankin, who were dressed as clowns; a skit by Don Mortin, also a clown, Dick Cutler and Ken Rankin, and a penny pitch, operated by Lynn Goodwin."

One black and white photograph used in St. Thomas Times-Journal article published March 11, 1961, with caption:
"Golden opportunity for St. Thomas children - A truly wonderful musical organization, the London Symphony Orchestra, directed by Martin Boundy, is coming to St. Thomas next Friday to give a special concert for the public school children of this city at the new gymnasium-auditorium at the Central Elgin District High School. The London Symphony each year gives a series of children's concerts for those attending London schools, but this year, through a special grant from the Canada Council, it has been possible to arrange to give several concerts free of charge in neighboring centres. St. Thomas has been fortunate in being offered the performance to be given next Friday evening. This week, the pupils of the St. Thomas Public Schools were told about the concert and took home printed notices for the attention of their parents, many of whom will undoubtedly accompany their children. There should be a standing-room only audience in the huge auditorium, but it can accommodate 1,200, it is said. The concert will start at 7 p.m. and last about an hour, but the program will be such as to be of real help to young people - and their elders - in understanding and appreciating good music. Mr. Boundy, with the help of Earle Terry, director of music for the London Board of Education, will give the audience a brief lesson in the organization and make-up of a symphony orchestra and give the background of each work to be performed. To demonstrate how the effort of each musician is woven into a finished presentation, individual members of the orchestra will play the notes of a few mars in the arrangement, first solo, then together, and finally the whole orchestra will be brought into play. Solo performers will include violinist Ron Trachy, the orchestra's concert master; violinist Horst Seifert; cellist Wacla Skoula; bass violinist Robert Chapman; poccolo, Jack Chapman; flute, Gerald Meyer; clarinet, Philip Murphy; oboe, Peter Oukflucht; and bassoon, Peter Sonerville. Arthur H. Birks, president of the London Symphony Orchestra Association, has been here this week to assist E.O. Reeb, superintendent of public schools, in preparation for the concert, and Mr. Birks gives enthusiastic assurance that the young people of the city are in for something they are sure to enjoy." (44a)
One black and white photograph used in St. Thomas Times-Journal article published May 8, 1971, with caption:
"The woman's point of view - Mrs. Margaret Henry, of London, the only female member of the Symphonic Brass Quintet of the London Symphony Orchestra, explains the operation of the French Horn to some Elgin students following one of four concerts performed at county schools by the quintet, Friday. Looking on from left are Sandy Cummings, Wellington Street School; Heather Callowhill, Homedale School; and Chris Cassidy, St. Raphael's Separate School. The students were among an estimated 1,000 senior elementary youngsters to hear the concerts." (44b)
