      Owner was Gerald Lynham Porte Grant-Suttie (February 17, 1890-May 24, 1949). Grant-Suttie was born in Detroit, Michigan, to George Grant-Suttie. Although there seems to be little information on his early schooling, Madsen documented in his book, ?Another Kind of Justice: Canadian Military Law From Confederation to Somalia? (1999), that Grant-Suttie completed two years of law school but did not attempt the bar examination. A career military man, Grant-Suttie joined the service in 1909, transferring to the Royal Canadian Regiment as a Lieutenant in 1913. In 1915 at the age of 25, he enlisted for overseas service in the First World War, during which he served as a court martial officer in London and France. The records of the Royal Canadian Regiment show that he was wounded in action in November of 1917. He received the British War Medal and the Victory Medal for his service. In 1924, Grant-Suttie married Ada Lewis Gooderham, daughter of Robert T. Gooderham of Toronto. A Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society, Grant-Suttie was instrumental in the induction of Canada into the International Geographical Union (IGU). He personally sponsored Canada?s membership in the IGU beginning in 1936, and served as the first chairman of the Canadian National Committee of the IGU. Grant-Suttie also served as the first Lithuanian Consul-General for Canada from 1937-1949. Lieutenant Colonel Grant Suttie died in 1949 at the age of 60 after suffering a heart attack at the Woodbine Racetrack clubhouse in Toronto. http://digitalcollections.library.ubc.ca/cdm/singleitem/collection/bookplate/id/865/rec/16
