Smith, Ted

Crestwood has been fortunate to visit the Sunnybrook Veterans Wing many times since we started our partnershipin 2008. Many Sunnybrook veterans have shared their impressions of the war and of the surrounding period. None has been able to do more effectively than Ted Smith, who we met in May 2012. Ted was a pilot in World War Two, and he is a gifted storyteller with an incredible memory for those slices of life we endeavour to find. Ted also kept a slew of his WW2 memorabilia, including a photo album that literally chronicles his life all through the war years. There was so much to say that we had to go back to see Ted a second time!

Ted was interviewed for this project by Michael Lawee and Zach Brown, with Antony Cook coming along on the second trip.
