    Notes 
    • From Bill Mallett, a neighbour of the Ross family: I lived next door to Eugene’s parents when I was a child, so knew the family well. Eugene’s father, Ernie, had quite an interesting history. Ernie’s mother was a widow, who raised her children alone until she married Dan Maclean in 1915. At that time they moved to a remote farm, no electricity and only a dirt trail connecting to the outside world. Ernie went to a one room school until grade 8, then he would have had to go into Lamont for grades 9 to 11. This meant that he would have had to board with a town family, probably doing chores and supplying farm produce in exchange for board and room. Lamont School only went up to grade 11, so Ernie obtained a second class teaching certificate, which allowed him to teach in a rural school. He obtained his grade 12 by taking correspondence courses and coming up to Edmonton during the summer holidays and going to summer school. After he graduated from grade 12, he obtained his first class teaching certificate, which allowed him to teach in a town school. He continued to take University courses during the summer, right up until he joined the RCAF. It took a lot work and perseverance to become a school principal and eventually a superintendent of schools.
