James Edward Blake Graham was born March 29, 1926 on the family farm, Township of Dawn, Ontario. He grew up there during the Great Depression. A rebellion with education was resolved when he accepted his school-teacher mother’s advice to return to school. In veterinary college he met his wife-to-be of the next forty years. He began veterinary practice in 1952 in Toronto, leaving in 1975 for a career in real estate. Following his wife’s struggle with breast cancer, he founded the Barbara Graham Breast Cancer Fund. Family life, including a second marriage, played an important part in his life. Available online from Essence Bookstore: A Sow's Ear to Silk Purse: Anecdotes from the Life of a Veterinarian.
