Lost soldier, son of former B.C. premier recognized by university
July 9, 2016
A plaque commemorating the life of James (Boy) Dunsmuir was unveiled last week at a ceremony at Hatley Castle, his family’s former residence. The plaque was donated to the university by Michael Audain, a Dunsmuir family descendant and chairman of Polygon Homes Ltd. The story about Boy and the inspiration for the plaque was featured in a number of media outlets including the Vancouver Sun on July 9.
Here is an excerpt:
“We are dedicating this plaque here today so that future generations will know about the sacrifice of your beloved son Boy,” [said] Michael Audain ... “His name will not be lost in the mists of time.”
