Scope and content

Caption in album by Anne Eby Millar: "War was declared Aug. 4. 1914. It seems as though he wanted to look back before going forward, when on Oct. 18th Gordon Eby stated in his diary that he wheeled out to Grandpa Eby's place and saw it for the first time. The Grandpa Isaac Eby farm was located where Grand River Collegiate, Kitchener now stands. Isaac Eby was the son of Bishop Benjamin Eby. Two days after this trip Gordon joined the city regiment and within less than a year he signed up for overseas duty.
Grandson of a Mennonite minister and baptized in the old "Eby's Church" in Kitchener, Gordon, like his father before him, became a soldier."
