I Know That Name!
The People Behind Canada's Best Known Brand Names from Elizabeth Arden to Walter Zeller
Written by Mark Kearney and Randy Ray.
Published by Dundurn Press, 2002.
|Every day, Canadians buy groceries at Sobey's, develop film at
Black's, or grab a coffee at Tim Horton's without giving it a second thought.
These brands are in our lives and in the public eye. We're familiar with the
names, but what do we really know about the people who lie behind them? I
Know That Name! will answer these questions for you. It's full of fun
facts, intriguing trivia, and engrossing explorations of more than one hundred
Canadian men and women who beat the odds to become household names, including
Timothy Eaton, Laura Secord, and J.L. Kraft.
They are names most of us recognize but can't put a face to. Where did these people grow up? What was the inspiration for the businesses, services and products that have found their way into the lives of generations of Canadians? These are fascinating stories about dozens of remarkable Canadians who put Canada on the map with their creativity, intelligence, innovation, and sheer drive, often against incredible odds.
Trivia Guys Mark Kearney and Randy Ray have written several best-selling books including The Big Book of Canadian Trivia, The Great Canadian Book of Lists, The Great Canadian Trivia Book, and Whatever Happened To...? Catching Up with Canadian Icons.
