  • From July 22-30, 1909, FPG (Greve/Grove) crossed the Atlantic from Liverpool to Montreal on the White Star Liner "Megantic." This is in exact analogy to what Grove described 18 years later on the first few pages of his Canadian Autobiography A Search For America (1927): he did embarked on a White Star Liner, the route was indeed from Liverpool to Montreal, he did in fact travel "2nd Cabin" or 2nd class, and the time of the year was correctly noted as being "late July." However, Greve was 30 years old, and not 24, as he emphatically claims in his book; and the passage takes place in 1909, and not in 1892! Obviously, Grove trusted that a distorted time-frame would be sufficient to mislead any efforts at finding his true identity, and he was right. The discovery that he was Greve was made by D. O. Spettigue in 1971, and his passage was not found before October 1998. ©gd
  • Bruce Thomson, Winnipeg, was sent to Ottawa with support from the UM Archives' FPG Endowment Fund to research the Canadian National Archives in mid-October 1998. This was shortly after he had presented a paper about search strategies for Grove's elusive passage at the "In Memoriam FPG, 1879-1948-1998" Symposium. Being a Titanic/White Star specialist, he aptly searched the Immigration Records for dozens of ships landing in Montreal between July and November 1909. His perseverence was rewarded: he was able to deposit the documents of FPG's passage at the FPG Endowment Fund in November 1998, and two contemporary phote-postcards in early 1999. On February 17, 1999, the present detailed Bison entry describing these important documents was launched. ©gd
  • The White Star Line's "Megantic" was launched from the docks of her Harland & Wolff Builders in Belfast on Dec. 10, 1908. Her name was originally "Albany" as she was ordered initially by the Dominion Line, Liverpool. She was delivered to the White Star Line on June 3,1909, and she assumed her regular route from Liverpool to Montreal with her maiden voyage on June 17, 1909. It was possibly the ship's second voyage that took Greve/Grove to North America. Of 1,700 possible passengers, only 739 were on board. 220 passengers [of a 430 capacity] were traveling, like Greve, in second class. The Megantic left Liverpool on July 22, 1909, and arrived in Montreal eight days later, on July 30th. The steamship's "Manifest" reveals details as to the arrival in the Port of Quebec, Montreal. Page 4 contains a list of thirty 2nd class passengers of which Greve is no.27. ©gd
  • Shelley Sweeney, Head, Archives & Special Collections, found on Nov. 23, 2000, in the diary that John Wesley Dafoe (1866-1944), former Editor of The Winnipeg Free Press, had kept during his trip to the Paris Peace Conferencee, that he had returned to Canada in 1919 on the same boat Greve had been on ten years earlier.
