One Port Bruce native, Thomas E. Lee, worked there between school and University in farm work, logging, wood-cutting, and commercial fishing. He stated that he gained "experience in numerous trades and skills (...) in a small fishing port where tools were scarce, problems were varied and funds were at a minimum." Lee went on to a very successful career in archaeology, serving as an archaeologist for the National Museum of Canada from 1949-1959.
