Henry ‘Harry’ Hodsmyth Pibus was born February 12, 1914 in Knowlton, QC, the son of Luther and Anabelle Pibus. He grew up in the village and after graduating from Knowlton High School, went on to study at Bishop’s University in Lennoxville.

While at Bishop’s, Harry participated in drama, hockey, football, and rugby and served on the Students’ Executive Council and Year Book Committee. He received his B.A. from Bishop’s in 1934 at the age of 20, and returned to the University the following year to complete the Teacher’s Course.
