The Margaret Farr Scholarship

When I graduated from high school in 1928 at age fifteen, the Principal at Moose Jaw Collegiate offered to loan me the money to go to University. My stern father forbade me to accept a loan from anyone.

At home we had a piano which my mother played. My father enjoyed music, and played the accordion and piano by ear. We listened to music on the radio and to a touring group which came once a year to play in a tent. This created a longing to hear more music.

I have always enjoyed chamber music, so have sponsored several concerts. Later when I learned that there was a need to help a student studying a string instrument, this scholarship was created.
