Jay Peterson (1920-1976)

My mother invented a baby chair that was used by the Service League of London as a fundraiser from about 1958 to 1967. Museum London has two different versions of this chair in their collection. Poet Colleen Thibaudeau Reaney penned the poem that is on my mother’s grave at the Leith, Ontario United Church cemetery.

My Mother, Jay Peterson (1920-1976), My Brother Chris Peterson (1954-2009), Tom Lodge and “The Ship That Rocked the World”

My mother and my brother Chris were supportive of Tom Lodge, who was head program director/top deejay on the ship Radio Caroline. This vessel was anchored off the coast of England, 1966-1967. Lodge wrote a book about his Radio Caroline adventures and the 2010 edition is dedicated to Chris.
