Harold Ballard
[Harold Ballard]
July 30, 1903 - 11 April 11, 1990
A successful manager of amateur hockey clubs, Harold Ballard was part owner of the Toronto Maple Leafs hockey team from 1962, and principal owner and chief executive of Maple Leaf Gardens Ltd. from 1972 until his death.
Ballard was a flamboyant and controversial figure who left a mixed legacy. Convicted of fraud in 1972, he was elected to the Hockey Hall of Fame in 1977. Legendary for his stinginess, vindictiveness and autocratic temperment, he exhibited a strong philanthropy in making the Gardens available for many benevolent functions and was honoured by the Ontario Hockey Association, the City of Toronto and the Canadian Rehabilitation Council for the Disabled, among others, for his generosity.
Member : Corinthian No. 481, Ontario
