Notice biographique

Captain Frederick George Woodbridge (1877-1961) was born in Glasgow, Scotland, and at an early age moved to Fredericton with his family. He joined the Canadian militia (71st York Regiment) in 1896, and enlisted for foreign service in 1914 as a Captain. He served overseas during the First World War with the 55th and 26th Battalions of the 71st; was wounded in 1916; subsequently served as a messing officer in England; was invalided to Canada in 1918; and served as a paymaster in Saint John. He studied civil engineering at the University of New Brunswick and dentistry at Harvard University. When he returned to Fredericton he settled at "Uplands", as his estate in the Forest Hill area was called.
Woodbridge has been called "one of Fredericton's best known and colorful residents". He had a wide variety of interests including flight and the development of gliders; a sight-seeing steamboat service on the St. John River; and writing poetry. His home attracted a great deal of attention for he decorated outbuildings with mosaics made from colored sea shells.
