Biographical history

Chester Roy Judd (aka C.R. Judd) was born on August 28, 1896 to Robert Judd and Ida Judd (née Ida Dickson) in London, Middlesex County, Ontario. The fourth of seven sons, Judd attended London Collegiate followed by the London Normal School, where he graduated in 1919 with a Permanent Second Class Teaching Certificate (upgraded to a first class teaching certificate by 1940).

Judd’s first position as a teacher was at Edith Cavell School in Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario during the 1919-1920 school year. The following school year, he taught at Sault Ste. Marie’s Central School. At the end of his second year of teaching, Judd left the profession to pursue a career as a chiropractor.

In September 1921, Judd moved to Davenport, Iowa, United States of America, where he attended the Palmer School of Chiropractic and received a Philosopher of Chiropractic (Ph.C.) and a Doctor of Chiropractic (D.C.). He graduated from Palmer on March 2, 1923. Upon graduation he returned to London, Ontario and set up a chiropractic practice; however, he did not remain a full-time chiropractor for the rest of his career. In 1926, Judd returned to teaching while continuing his chiropractic practice part-time. He retired as a chiropractor in 1965.

On August 11, 1926, Judd accepted the position of principal and teacher at Capreol Public School in Capreol, Ontario and he began teaching on September 7, 1926. The following year, on July 9, 1927, Judd married Esther Irene Mossop (aka Ettie Mossop, 1900-2000) in Middlesex County, Ontario. The couple had known each other while they were students at London Collegiate and the London Normal School, where Ettie graduated with a Permanent First Class Teaching Certificate in 1923. After their wedding, Ettie Judd taught as a substitute teacher at Capreol Public School. In November 1932, the couple welcomed a son, Donald Leslie Judd.

In 1959, due to the rising population of the area, Capreol opened a new, four-room school and named it C.R. Judd Public School in honour of Judd, though he was never an employee there and remained principal of Capreol Public School until his retirement in 1964. After retirement, the Judd family moved to Thamesford, Ontario.

C.R. Judd passed away on February 26, 1969 in Thamesford, Ontario at the age of 72.

Judd Public School held an official opening ceremony and a plaque, featuring a picture of C.R. Judd was presented to Ettie Judd and hung in the entrance of the school.
