Letter to Louis Blake Duff
BYERLY, Dr. A. E. [Alpheus Edward]
Alpheus E. Byerly, a noted Guelph doctor, historian, and collector, was born in Anamosa, Iowa on September 9, 1894 and died in Guelph on June 13, 1960. Byerly immigrated to the Guelph area in 1921. He is most noted for his interest in the history of Southwestern Ontario and being the author of historical works, a novel, and many newspaper articles. Byerly also founded the Wellington County Historical Society, to which he refers in this letter. Louis Blake Duff of Welland was a teacher, newspaper editor, and financier, as well as a noted book lover. He was well known as a speaker on history so its not surprising that Byerly invites Duff to speak to the his local historical society.
