Vaughn Dragland


I was born in 1950 in Calgary, Alberta, Canada. My father was Lawrence Dale Dragland, son of Rudy Magnus Dragland, son of Mikal Olsen Dragland, son of Ole Thorson, from Dragland, Norway. My mother's name was Nona May Cuthill, (nee Nona May Annon.) I have one sister: Jeanne Ellen Morrison, and four brothers: Michael David Gnam, Dean Morgan Dragland, Brad Michael Dragland, and Todd Leroy Dragland.

[Vaughn Dragland] I went to the University of Lethbridge in Alberta, and have lived all over Alberta; as well as Vancouver, Victoria, and Terrace, BC; and Denver Colorado; and now (since 1978) in Toronto, Ontario. I love to travel and have visited almost every state in the USA, almost every province in Canada, and a few places in Europe, (so far...)

I have one son: Michael Raymond Dragland, who was born in 1975. His mother is my first wife, Jane Louise Goodall.

I was married to my second wife Cornelia Dragland (nee Cornelia Schillup) for over 40 years until she passed away, having succumbed to ALS. We have two daughters: Amanda Vale Dragland (1986), and Fallon Rachel Dragland (1988). We had many cats over the years and a beautiful golden doodle (Toby).

I have 4 grandchildren: Athena Dragland, Avery Dragland, Elias Dodd, and Roan Dodd.

As a hobby, I haved edited and published various magazines and articles, including a computer trade magazine, named the "TUG magazine." If you are interested in seeing a few of my articles, follow this link:
