History / Biographical
Sidney Hugh Godolphin Osborne (1887-1958) was born in London, England on December 28, 1887, the son of Sidney Francis Godolphin Osborne and Margaret Dulcibella (Hammersley) Osborne. Sidney’s brother was Francis D'Arcy Godolphin Osborne, 12th Duke of Leeds, KCMG. Sidney lived openly with men with whom he was romantically involved. Perhaps due to this, he was persuaded to immigrate to Canada as a young man (year unknown). His estate was located outside Niagara Falls, Ontario. Sidney travelled frequently to the United States. He was killed in a car accident on the Queen Elizabeth Expressway on October 9, 1958. The name(s) of his companion(s) have not survived, though the donor's mother knew the last one well.
