Biographical history

Bill Cunningham was a Canadian photographer. He was born in 1909 in BC and graduated in 1924 from Vancouver College. He was hired by the Vancouver Sun in 1939, at the age of 31 years. In 1944, Cunningham joined another paper, The Province, where he worked for 27 years. After he retired from the Province in 1973, he established a solo career until his death in 1993, at the age of 84. Cunningham's awards include the 1983 induction into the BC Sports Hall of Fame's W.A.C. Bennett Award and the UBC Big Block Club award. He is survived by five daughters and one son.
