Adam Beck

Sir Adam Beck was born in Baden, Ontario on June 20, 1857. He was elected three times to the office of mayor of London, Ontario, and simultaneously served as a member of the Provincial Legislature (which is no longer permitted). He was knighted by King George V in 1914.

The Queenston Chippawa power station, which he helped to create, was renamed after him in 1950. A private school in London is also named after him.
