Jay Peterson’s Posters for the Canadian Mental Health Association – London-Middlesex Branch, Mental Health Week, 1952

My mother Jay Peterson designed two posters for the Canadian Mental Health Association – London-Middlesex Branch Mental Health Week in 1952. One was a functional family montage and the other was a dysfunctional one. I will leave it up to you to decide if these posters are still relevant today.

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.

This is a follow-up to my March 19, 2012 post about my mother and my brother Chris’s connection to Radio Caroline top deejay Tom Lodge. Lodge publicly thanked my mother and brother for their support. I attended an October 2011 London event to raise funds for Lodge’s cancer treatment. Unfortunately, he died March 25, 2012.

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.
