Morello, Gerald

Gerald Morello was a man born to humble roots, in an Italian neighbourhood of Toronto. He did not enlist in the army during World War II, which gave him a unique perspective on the events happening in the Home Front, and the attitudes of the Canadian people during this time period. His parents were recent immigrants, and he was the one of the three children to be born in Canada. Gerald Morello dove into a variety of positions during the war, which varied from working at the Toronto Star, to working in a munitions factory.

He is the grandfather of Crestwood student Mark Leonard, who interviewed him for this project.
