Atikokan School System Research, by Susan Bryk

The following collection of research has been compiled by Susan Bryk, gleaned from the files and registers of the school systems as well as from back issues of the Atikokan Progress, and from many other sources. Questions and problems are noted along the way in these lists, so please feel free to with corrections, comments and suggestions.


Biographies and photos of Atikokan teachers.

Jessie Enge and Ann Maradyn Jessie Enge and Ann Maradyn
These two teachers were much loved by their students. Jessie Enge (left) started her teaching career at Hemlock School in 1956, teaching either Kindergarten or Grade 1 there in an unbroken run of 40 years, until her retirement in June, 1996. Ann Maradyn taught at Rawn Road (1956-1961) and Hemlock School (1961-1983) until her retirement in June, 1983. This photo, sent to me by Susan Bryk, is thought to have been taken around 1980. See a larger version of this photo.

Bolek (Bob) Marcinek (1922-1995)  Bolek Marcinek
2017 Bob Marcinek taught at AHS from 1956 to 1963 (he is listed as "Bruno J. Marcinek" in his records). He taught history but his main love was math­ema­tics, and he would fill the blackboard with "magic numbers" which, when added together or multiplied with each other, did mysterious things. I received an email in 2013 from Manfred Rassau, in Germany, asking me if Mr. Marcinek was still alive and living in Atkokan, as he (Manfred) was writing an article about him. I heard nothing more for a year, then Manfred sent me his remarkable story. It was well known that Mr. Marcinek had been in the Polish Army during World War 2, but I don't think any of the details were known. See "Escape from Sachsenhausen". (Added August 13, 2017)

Colin Alexander Smith (1890-1956) Colin A. Smith
Colin Smith started teaching in Atikokan in 1946, when there was a total of four classrooms in the town. He died in a Hamilton, Ontario, hospital on July 18, 1956, while on a teachers' course. He had been appointed supervisory principal for Atikokan's three-school public school system, just prior to his death. See articles from the Atikokan Progress.

 


Class photos, listed by year, school and grade.

Formal classroom pictures for elementary schools were not taken between 1955 and 1973, and St. Patrick's Separate School didn't start until 1977. High school yearbooks were not issued every year either. If you have any photos taken at school or of school activities, we would love to have copies for this website! Please contact .

Unless otherwise credited, the class photos and student names in this section were collected by . She searched the collections of both the Atikokan Centennial Museum and the Atikokan Progress, and scanned historic material for this website. She also put out a call for photos on Facebook, then posted them there to get student names. Not all class photos or names have been found yet, so your help would be appreciated if you can contribute.
