Name of creator
Noël Lemay was born on December 25, 1890 in Garthby. He is the son of Pierre Lemay (d. 1899) and Arthémise Lepage (d. 1923).
In 1899, the family home in Garthby burned down following a large fire that also destroyed almost a third of the village of Garthby. Noël's family emigrated to the United States. Noël studied in East Hampton (Massachusetts, USA) from 1899 to 1904. His stay in East Hampton allowed him to study in English, but also to visit Boston and to discover many facets of American culture, notably the abundance of visual arts and photography. He became perfectly bilingual, which eventually opened many doors for him.
Noël married Marie-Louisa (Lauza) Campeau on July 17, 1916. They had 15 children, one of whom died at birth and another in his first year of life.
Noël was the local administrator for the Brompton Pulp and Paper Company from 1917 to 1930. Due to the Great Depression of 1929, the Brompton Pulp and Paper Company closed its Garthby office in 1930. Noël and his family moved to Bishopton. Noel worked for Mr. Sydney Bishop's casket making business there.
In the 1940's, Noël and his family moved to Ville Saint-Laurent (Montreal).
There, Noël worked for an architect for a few years. His mandates led him to design architectural details, and furniture, ornaments and decorations in large stores in Montreal.
He died on September 2, 1967 in Ville Saint-Laurent at the age of 76. His wife Lauza died in February 1976 in Montreal.

We see a small buggy, pulled by a goat. One child is seated in the buggy and driving it. A man stands in the background of the buggy with a little girl in front of him. Gaspard Lemay, Noël Lemay's oldest son, is standing to the left of the man. Valmore, Noël Lemay's second child, stands in front of the goat and holds it by its horns. In the background is a 1910's automobile (partial rear view). The other man and the two other children are unidentified.
