John Keith Macdonald was born in the midst of the Second World War, the youngest of three children to John Macdonald and Lavinia Munford. His father, known only as “Daddy in the picture,” was away overseas, serving in the infantry and involved in liberating Holland, from where he sent home three pairs of wooden shoes. When he returned in 1946, the family moved to a small farm west of Montreal, where young John’s love of country life and animals was born.
