Jack Shreve was born in New Brunswick in 1914 and was raised there and in Nova Scotia, until 1930. In 1934, after spending a few years in Toronto, the family returned to the Maritimes, living in St. Stephen, NB. After his trip on the "Canadian Scottish,” Jack received his amateur radio license and remained an avid ham radio operator for the rest of his life. He did his wireless training at Saint John Vocational School and during WW II was a radio operator, first with the Merchant Marine and then, once it was up and running, with the Ferry Command. He worked as a radio technician for the CBC International Service in Sackville, NB from 1952 until his death, at age 50, in 1965.
