John McDonald has researched the history of the Halton area since 1970, an interest which started when he began inquiring into the Limehouse and Dolly Varden areas where he spent his youth as the eldest of nine children. As a boy he felt the presence of the past as he roamed through old ruins of lime kilns and mills, which motivated him to collect old photographs and memorabilia and to write about local people and places.
A founding member of the Esquesing Historical Society and former member of Halton Hills and Halton Region Councils, John takes a keen interest in the community and has helped to awaken a new interest in this area's history.
