Another Oxford Citizen to make their mark on the world came in the form of a man known as Klondike Joe Boyle.

After graduating from Woodstock College in 1883, Boyle began his adventurous career by impulsively running away on the Nova Scotian barque "Wallace", leaving behind only a simple note - "I've gone to sea, don't worry about me, Joe."
