North Shore Sports Hall of Fame
3571 Lonsdale Avenue
Len Corben, Chair
Originally created in 1967, the North Shore Sports Hall of Fame first class of inductees included lacrosse player Henry Baker, tennis stars Caroline Deacon and Eleanor Young Stonehouse, track and field runners Harry Jerome and Bill Parnell, Olympic swimmer Elaine Tanner, North Vancouver Lawn Bowling Club pairs Sam Gardiner and Dick Williams and former BC Soccer president and North Shore soccer builder Jim Spencer.
Then the Hall of Fame took a break until 1971 when it inducted gymnast Sandra Hartley, figure skater Jay Humphry, archer Dorothy Lidstone and soccer builder Tommy Nelson. The Hall of Fame then went dormant until 2019 when it was relaunched thanks to North Vancouver Recreation & Culture, West Vancouver Community Services and a dedicated group of community members.
