Dear Taxacomers, specially Canadian entomologists,

Up to now, I have been unable to find the dates of birth and death of
Oscar Whittaker, a Canadian hymenopterist, probably amateur and living
in Hollyburn, British Columbia; he described species among several
families, particularly Parasitica. I have no trace of him after 1931. No
Canadian colleague personally contacted (not many, however) has heard of him.
His collection must contain important holotypes.

Who could help me for one or both dates?

Many thanks in advance / Sorry for uninterested colleagues.
