North York Historical Society February 2022 Meeting (Virtual): Herb Carnegie – Community Builder
February 16 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Herb Carnegie – an exceptional man and a community builder in the history of North York.
His skills as a hockey player never got him to the NHL because of racist policies against Blacks. After a successful career in the industrial leagues, he went on to set up a hockey school, have a successful career as a financial consultant and win several amateur golf championships at both the Ontario and Canada level. All of these achievements were based on a strong sense of good sportsmanship and fair play which Herb Carnegie set down in a document called the Future Aces Creed. This document has been signed by over 1 million school children as part of their sports participation.
This presentation will examine the life of Herb Carnegie with special emphasis on the Future Aces Creed and the direction that is put forward for youth in that document.
