Who Was Lord Beaverbrook?
Lord Beaverbrook High School was founded in 1967, and the first year of attendance was in 1968. We inherited our name from a man named William Maxwell Aitken. He was born on May 25, 1879, in Maple, Ontario. In 1916, he was recognized for his achievements with a seat in the House of Lords, the senior branch of the British Parliament. It was customary to create a title for oneself, so Aitken thought back to his childhood and the times he would spend fishing at a stream called the Beaverbrook. This is when he claimed the title, Lord Beaverbrook. Lord Beaverbrook died at the age of eighty-five, on June 9, 1964.
