Bereik en inhoud

Manuscript contains four pages of hand calligraphy and art, bound in brown leather and inscribed, "To James Carlyle, Esq., M.D. Toronto". The manuscript was presented to Dr. Carlyle upon his retirement in 1893 by the "Old Model Boys", students to whom he was their headmaster (1858-1871) at the Boys' Model School, followed by being the Mathematical Master at the Toronto Normal School (1871-1893). Also in the file are two notices copied from the Internet of Dr. Carlyle's death from The Globe newspaper.

Dr. James Carlyle (born England,1830/31-1990) was the son of John Carlyle (born Scotland, 1791-1872) and the nephew of Thomas Carlyle (1795-1881) the Scottish historian and philosopher known as the Sage of Chelsea, because he spent much of his life living and writing in Chelsea, London being very much respected by his Victorian literary peers. James Carlyle emigrated to Canada in 1837 with his parents and siblings. He became a teacher in Brantford, was promoted to Headmaster at the Boys' Model School in Toronto (1858-1871) 13 years during which time he went to medical school earning his medical degree. Dr. Carlyle spent another 22 years as the Master of Mathematics at the Toronto Normal School, retiring in 1893. He lived at 187 Gerrard Street East. During the last five years of his life he suffered from bronchial asthma, dying at home on 13 October 1900 at the age of 70 leaving behind his wife, Wilhelmina (Mina), two sons and three daughters. James is buried in Mount Pleasant Cemetery with his wife.
