Hide Profile

Frederick Niven was born in Valparaiso, Chile, but left for Scotland at the age of five. Ill-health forced him to move to the drier climate of the Okanagan Valley of British Columbia to live with missionary friends of his mother. After travelling between Scotland and Canada, Niven finally settled in British Columbia.
