Are there any changes we should make?
Note that the Kelvin History website is a newly innovated addition to our school's many historical memorabilias. With the hundreds of biographies already added by a group of dedicated students we are not always opportuned to receive information that would better benefit our alumni biographies. If by chance you feel as though you have some missing details on any particular alumni then we will graciously accept to hear about them from you personally!Suggest a Change

Al Silverthorne was one of Canada's best basketball players. He won three Senior Canadian Championships (1926, 1927, and 1932) as a scoring guard with the Winnipeg "Toilers." On March 1, 1933, he was involved in a plane crash with the rest of the Winnipeg Toilers after returning from an international game with the Diamond Oilmen of Tulsa, Oklahoma. The crash killed two of his team mates and left Al severely injured. He is a member of the Manitoba Basketball Hall of Fame.
