In Berlin 1914

travel documents german course r








Travel documents here witness silently to Peter's presence in Berlin; his stay was to end with a rush to safety just days before hostilities began with declaration of war on August 4, 1914. Peter went there with Fr. Henry Carr, C.S.B., his lifelong friend, to improve his German. Having learned it during childhood from the Grawey family, he would eventually need formal training in order to be able to read German scientific publications.

Peter Joseph Moloney was born in Penetanguishene, Ontario, on 29 June 1891; on 12 August 1989, he died in Toronto. When he was two years old his father purchased the Queen's Hotel in Powassan, Ontario, and moved his family to the town of which Peter was to say in an extreme old age, “I can almost claim to be still a citizen of Powassan.”

His formal education began when he was five in Powassan’s two-room two-teacher elementary school of that period. Since the district was then without a high school, a local teacher conducted a “Continuation School” at which Moloney studied a number of high school subjects. At sixteen he registered at St. Michael’s College, Toronto. There he completed studies preliminary to matriculation and then passed into the degree programme of the University of Toronto as a member of one of the first St. Michael’s classes to do so.
