1916 Central High School of Commerce Opens

  • Robert H. Eldon, 1st Principal of Central High School of Commerce

    A Leader for Commercial Education

    "The High School of Commerce became a reality in 1916, and proceeded to draw admiring attention and to make history as the pioneer school of its kind in Ontario. This work, less spectacular but no less useful than the technical education, owes its successful development in Toronto to the efforts and leadership of R. H. Eldon." p.128, Centennial Story.
