OBITUARY (xerox of old newspaper clipping, no newspaper name, no date)
"C. M. WOODWORTH
Charles M. Woodworth, whose death followed a motor accident on the Grandview Highway, was a man who always insisted on swimming against the current. If a thing was popular, that was reason enough for Mr. Woodworth to question. But he was not unreasonable in his questioning and not infrequently he was right.
Mr. Woodworth was a man of wide culture and considerable native ability. But he had met with reverses and insisted on regarding his life as a tragedy. He had been a college mate of Rt. Hon. R. B. Bennett's at Dalhousie, and the contrast between his own achievements and those of Mr. Bennett seemed to haunt him.
All the same, his life was very far from being a failure. He had great hopes for Canada and did what he could to realize them, and he served his fellow citizens of Vancouver tirelessly in various capacities, chiefly as school trustee. He would have served them in wider fields, too, and served them well, had they been willing, but they did not give him the opportunity."
