Fraser Laschinger of Prescott will be blending some founding History of Prescott with the pioneer Glasgow family of whom he is a 5th generation descendant. Fraser’s research will be about these past real life people and some unexpected unsung heroes of the day. Prescott – Glasgow’s – Vimy Ridge will all be connected: Come and see how!
Fraser Laschinger was born and raised in Montreal, Quebec and attended school there. He graduated from Lower Canada College in 1964, McGill University (BA) in 1970, and Osgoode Hall Law School (LL’B) in 1973. He worked his entire career in the federal government, starting at Industry, Trade and Commerce and then the Departments of Finance and External Affairs. In all these departments his specialty was international trade where he worked on multilateral trade negotiations (the Tokyo Round and Uruguay Round) and bilateral trade.
Since retiring he has pursued his interests in painting and drawing, reading, history, gardening and travel. On moving to Prescott four years ago, he joined a number of organizations in town which were in his field of interests. These included the Prescott Heritage Committee, where he served as chairman for two years, the Prescott Cemetery Board where he is chairman and chief custodian, the St. Lawrence Shakespeare Festival, where he is a board member and chairman of fundraising, and finally but not least, the Grenville County Historical Society, where he currently serves as president.
