Kingstone, A. Courtney OR'92

Kingstone, A. Courtney OR'92
In the early 1900’s Kingstone sat as one of three men on the original Board of Governors for Ridley. He was named Vice-President of the Board, and he had a particular interest in public speaking. Many years he would attend and be the judge for orator competitions on campus. In the mid 1920’s Kingstone, along with several other benefactors of the school, surrendered his school bonds as gifts to put towards the building of the Chapel. From 1932 to1938 he sat at the High Court of Justice, the Superior Court. In honour of all his years of support of public speaking, the school still awards the Hon. Mr. Justice A. Courtney Kingstone Award each year to the student who excels in oratory skill. Kingstone died in Vancouver in January, 1938.
