Major-General Donald Hogarth had moved to Port Arthur as a real estate colleague of J.J. Carrick before the war. He enlisted in 1914 working in supplies and transport, eventually becoming the Quartermaster-General for the Canadian Expeditionary Force and leaving the military in 1919 with the rank of Major-General. He was awarded a Distinguished Service Order in 1917.
During the war, Hogarth was also acting as an elected Ontario Conservative MPP for Port Arthur from 1911-1923 and 1926-1934.
