I had Ed as my art teacher and my mother had him as her history teacher. Could say we kept it in the family. Found memories from that time.

Mr. Garvin was a great teacher and had a passion for art. His Grade 9 class gave me exposure to the art classics and nurtured my continuing interest in art. Also met my future brother in law while sharing art supplies. May he Rest In Peace

Though history was never one of my favourite subjects, Mr. Garvin did make it interesting and always threw in a joke or two for emphasis-great sense of humour. He encouraged debates, which were usually lively and always made you feel like you were part of the class-never centred anyone out - one of the better teachers at KLCVI.
Remembering Mr. Garvin

I was a student of Mr. Garvin's around 1965. Not a very good student, mind you, but I enjoyed Mr. Garvin's history classes. He must have had some impact on me because I've earned three degrees in history, and nearly a PhD. Mr. Garvin's knowledge and passion of all things historical was exceptional; I always enjoyed his classes, and his willingness to allow for debate over some of the lesser known point of history. Here's one former student who can say with conviction, "Thank you, Ed."
