Biographical history

Richard Wallace was probably born at Southampton, England. About 1880 he jumped ship at Saint John, New Brunswick, settling at McGivney, in the parish of Stanley, York County, New Brunswick. He may have worked as a section man for the Canadian National Railway for many years. What is certain is that he wrote a short story about a sailor who jumped ship and found adventure in Rio de Janeiro. The protagonist seems to have been modelled somewhat after Wallace himself. Robert Wallace probably died on 4 December 1932 at McGivney.
