  • Notes 
    • STATUS: Commercial.
    • BIOGRAPHICAL SUMMARY: In the 1891 Canada census he was living at home and his occupation was given as "seaman". His father, Alonzo Calder, was a sea captain. He had three sisters but no brothers at home as of 1891.
      By 1901 he was living in Saint John, NB, and working as a photographer.
      He was listed as a photographer in the 1906 business directory but no place of employment was given. He worked for the Wadds Brothers between 1907 and 1909, then was listed on his own between 1910-1911. By 1912 he was operating out of the studio formerly occupied by R.H. Trueman. In 1942 he was a photographer for Bridgman's Studio Limited. Both before and after being employed by Bridgman's Studio he also operated on his own.
      On 25 Feb 1949 he immigrated via Calais, ME, to be with his second wife, Estella Mary (also known as Mary Estelle) Calder, of Eastport, ME. They had been married the year before in Maine.
