Louis Édouard Fernand Rinfret (Secretary of State of Canada)

Hon. FERNAND RINFRET (Secretary of State):

Yesterday the leader of the opposition (Mr. Bennett) asked me to ascertain whether or not Mr. Karl R. Gerhard or anyone with a similar name has been naturalized in this country in 1938. The reply is as follows:

There is no record of the naturalization in Canada of any person bearing the name Emil Karl Gerhardt.

There is the record of a certificate of naturalization having been issued, on November 19, 1937, to Karl Rudolf Gerhard, of 3463 Shuter street, Montreal.

The petition of Gerhard for naturalization was filed in the office of the clerk of the circuit court for the district of Montreal, on the 2nd June, 1937. The petition was heard by His Honour Judge Bumbray, on the 22nd October, 1937, who made a favourable report. The oath of allegiance was taken by Gerhard on the 12th November, 1937, and a certificate was issued to him in the regular course.

According to bis own statement, confirmed by the records of the immigration branch, Department of Mines and Resources, this Karl Rudolf Gerhard, then aged twenty-two, farm labourer, destined to the Lutheran immigration board, Montreal, landed at Halifax on March 15, 1930, ex the SS. Stuttgart.

The particulars of his residence in Canada were given as follows:

At Eden, Ontario, 1930-32, % N. O. Stillwell, storekeeper.

At London, Ontario, 1932-33, Huron college and university.

At Waterloo, Ontario, 1933-34, % Jack Conrad, 34 Young street.

At Montreal, Quebec, from September, 1934, until 1937.

At the time of his application, he described himself as a journalist. He further stated that he had made a three months' visit to Germany in the summer of 1936.

There is no record in the Department of State as to whether this Mr. Gerhard made a trip to Europe during the course of this year or whether he was in Rome at the time of Mr. Hitler's visit.
