From about 1915 to 1919, Bill lived with his Uncle George and Aunts Eliza and Minnie in Bradford.

From now until his first job, Bill would spend his summers with Uncle George and Uncle Clarence (Minnie's brother) at Clarence's farm north of Bradford.[377] In the fall of 1919, Bill arrived home from Uncle Clarence's farm two days late and so missed the orientation for his school - it was very regimented. On his first day he didn't know where to line up, or that you had to march to class. The prinicple helped him out when his class marched off leaving him in the school yard by himself. Bill remembered his mother telling him that, if asked, he was to say she was Dutch, and not of German heritage as was the case.[378] Edward Reginald Morton sent his "nephew" Bill the Boy's Own Annual from England each Christmas.[379] After finishing high school in 1932, and normal school in 1933, Bill began teaching public school.
