Greetings from Bali. I would appreciate any info you may have about my grandfather: George Henry Adlam - born 1874 - perhaps in or around Sterling Scotland; died in Calgary, Canada 1940. Son of Elizabeth Robertson. He had an eye removed at the age of 16 at Guy's hospital, London UK. The register shows that lived in Richmond St Mary's Villa around that time - and may have stayed at Wick House when he was a student. Attended New England Conservatory of Music. May have gone to Chicago and then to Victoria BC before settling in Calgary where he opened Adlam College of Music. Married Elizabeth Lindsay in 1919.
Appears in Prominent Men of Canada (some volume in the 1930s) - but probably wrote the entry himself. His father may have been named Charles Adlam. But he was very secretive about his father. His tombstone gives a wrong year of birth (1879) - I found out the truth when I checked Guy's Hospital Register.
