Memorial juxtaposed in front of HCI
The sculpture takes the form of a stainless steel "H", with
an 8" space between the vertical halves. This 'break' represents
the rending of futures -- the lives of Harbord C.I. students, lost in
World War II. To read the names of those whose memories are honoured,
one stands within, and is embraced by, the sculpture. The monument will
be located in the lower courtyard at the southeast corner of
not to detract from the existing WW I monument. At present, the Toronto
District School Board is vetting the project.
new memorial is designed by Architect / Sculptor Morton Katz, a former
U of T Professor, a Past President of the Sculptor's Society of Canada
and a Harbord C.I.alumnus. Through the Herculean efforts of
funds are being raised both for the restoration of the WW I
the construction of the WW II memorial.
