About Franklin Carmichael
"We have everything out of which to build ideas and traditions, to fail to make use of them would simply be throwing away a priceless heritage of spirit and material."
Carmichael grew up in Orillia, Ontario. As a teenager he worked in his father’s shop as a carriage striper. In 1911 he went to Toronto, where he studied art at the Central Technical School and the Ontario College of Art.View CV
