Toronto, July 27, 2014. Photographic Canadiana editor, Bob Lansdale, relays this sad message:
“Noted historian Graham Garrett passed away last July 27, 2014 in his 80th year. This sad loss has just been drawn to our attention. Graham contributed several well researched articles on early Canadian photography to our Photographic Canadiana journal and helped immensely in preparing the article on Eli Palmer – Toronto Photographer.
“His greatest contribution to the history of Canadian photography is the Biographical Index of Daguerreotypists in Canada 1839-1871 which was made available on disc with thousands of entries.
“Survived by his loving wife Hoda (nee Nasri). Remembered fondly by brothers Bernard and Elton, sister-in-law Mona, brothers-in-law Rafik and Hani, many nieces and nephews and his good friend Anna.”
