    Biographical history

    Clara Grace Quinlan was born in 1895 at Mahone Bay, Nova Scotia to Grace and John Quinlan. She attended school in Mahone Bay until 1913 when she was sent to Mount St. Vincent Academy in Bedford, N.S. for grade twelve. The following year she attended the Provincial Normal College in Truro where she trained to be a teacher. Following her graduation she taught in several Nova Scotian schools as a teacher, and later vice-principal (1919-1922) before moving to the United States to work. In 1930 she accepted a position at Hawthorne Street School in Dartmouth and worked there until 1950 when her uncle, Percy Inglis, died. She then returned to Mahone Bay to care for her aging mother and to run the family store previously managed by her uncle. Clara also continued her uncle's tradition of showing visitors around the family home to view his china collection. One of her favorite pastimes was collecting correspondence from celebrities all around the world. Clara operated the store until 1985 when she moved to Shoreham Village, Chester, where she died in 1988.
