Arthur Wellesley Lynde, son of John Jabez Lynde and Elizabeth Wilson, was born at Whitby on 5 May 1887. He was a musician and was appointed to be in charge of the music program in Whitby public schools in 1925. He was supervisor of music for many years and was a choir leader in Whitby's United and Presbyterian Churches.

One of Arthur's main hobbies was growing delphiniums and he was a recognized authority on these flowers, winning many prizes at the Canadian National Exhibition.

He died at Oshawa on 5 April 1952 and is buried at Oshawa Union Cemetery.

Marjorie Georgina Ruddy (1908-1980) was a prominent Whitby photographer and the only commercial photographer in Whitby during the 1930s and 1940s. Marjorie was the official photographer for the Whitby Police Department starting in the 1930s and as a result took many photographs of car accidents, fingerprints and crime scenes. (Station Gallery.
