Donald Bishoprick

Happy Birthday to Donald Bishoprick born in Skagway on this day, August 20, 1907 to Arthur and Bertha. His dad Arthur came to Skagway in 1898 from Toronto and worked as a laborer. He met Bertha Goding and they married in 1903 here in Skagway.

Donald eventually moved to San Jose where he married in 1949 and then lived in San Francisco where he died in 1980. So here is a very cute picture of a bulldog puppy which I would give to Donald on his birthday if he was around, which he isn’t. Too bad.
