130 Howe, Audrey Marie

The Secretary of State to the Consul General at Winnipeg (Heintzleman)

With reference to the registration application which was executed in your office on July 20, 1932, by Miss Audrey Marie Howe and the Department’s instruction of July 25, 1932,67 approving the registration you are informed that the case of Miss Howe has been receiving further consideration by the Department and it has been ascertained that the oath of allegiance taken by her in connection with her position as a teacher in the schools of the Province of Alberta was in no way qualified. Accordingly, the Department is of the opinion that the oath taken is such an oath as is contemplated by the first paragraph of Section 2 of the Act of March 2, 1907, and that the taking of such an oath resulted in the loss of American citizenship by Miss Howe. You will, therefore, cancel the record of her registration in your office.
