bullet  General Notes:

From a letter from Sally Radcliffe Packard to Richard, her brother, prior to his passing in 2002.

"The third brother was Herb Berry. He was a dentist, also went to Upper Canada College. His hands shook, and I would not have liked to have him as my dentist. He went to burlesque shows at the Stratford Theater. I think that he was the one that Mother [Alice Greathead Radcliffe] once saw drinking cologne on the Fourth of July. ... [see notes under his wife's name] There were three daughters, Helen, Louisa and Janet, but I don't remember anything about them."

The fact that he went to Upper Canada College in Oshawa, Ontario was confirmed by Alice Nelson McCoy in a letter to Sally Packard, a copy of which was sent to Ellen Woods 11-05.

See obituary for more notes on him.

Belle Radcliffe has a piece of stationery that once belonged to Herb. (On the back is a letter by Richard Radcliffe to his grandmother). The heading on the paper says, Herbert T. Berry, D.D. S., 806 W. 64th Street, Chicago, Ill. Telephone Wentworth 1410
