MOUNT PLEASANTRIES Revised

In 1886 pioneers Jacob and Mary Grauer became the parents of George Grauer, the first baby birth recorded in Mount Pleasant.

Twenty years later, in 1906, their sixth son, Albert Edward “Dal” Grauer, was born on Sea Island, now the site of the Vancouver International Airport.  Dal Grauer, who became the well-known President of the BC Electric Company, was also elected Chancellor of UBC in 1957 and presided over Queen Elizabeth’s 1959 visit to the University.

We have changed #12 to reflect that, despite being born 20 years later, George Grauer was Dal Grauer’s older brother, not his father.
