Merv was an all-around athlete until he was stricken with polio.

During his fifteen years as president of the BCLA (1943-1958) he turned a financially strapped organization into a solvent one.  His dedication was such that he and his new bride sent their honeymoon attending the annual CLA meetings in Toronto!
