“I submit a photo from 1921 including my mother M.R."Dalhousie" Armitage on the left of the lady holding the basketball (Connie Young). My mother, Dalhsie, as she was known, was highly regarded on the team. After one of their winning games, the Dalhousie Gazette reported, " Miss Armitage was the bright, particular star for Dal. Her shooting was marvelous in its accuracy and swiftness." She had two sons who also graduated from Dalhousie, Peter and Ian McDermaid. Her father was Rev. Dr. William J. Armitage, Archdeacon of Halifax. Her mother, Elinor Maria (nee Ramsay) Armitage was a "Ramsay" whose forebear was a brother of the Earl who founded Dalhousie college.”
