Dates of existence



Richard Prichard was a medical student at McGill University from 1913 until his death on the Lusitania in 1915. Following his father’s early death in 1904, Preston traveled to Canada in order to find employment and raise money for his family. Over the following decade, he worked as a farmer, lumberjack and a property dealer, before enrolling at McGill University to study medicine. At the age of 29, Preston embarked as a second class passenger on board the Cunard liner RMS Lusitania, bound from New York for Liverpool (The Papers of Mrs. G. S.
