2.5 cm of textual records

John Christ was born in Brandon, Manitoba in 1931 to parents John Sr. and Katherine Christ, who were both born in Austria [Hungary]. The family later moved to British Columbia and settled in the Ladysmith area. John trained as an automotive mechanic at the Nanaimo Vocational School in 1949. He married Sharon Stevenson at an unknown date. He later worked at Newcastle Motors. John died in 1999.

Material was acquired from the Ladysmith Archives and retained by the NCA because of the items related to the Nanaimo Vocational School (now Vancouver Island University).

Fonds consists of a Grade 8 report card, two certificates from the Nanaimo Vocational School, one Certificate of Apprenticeship, a radio license and a small notebook that appears to be a record of daily expenses (1953-1968).

Title based on the contents of the fonds.
