Episode 7 - Harvey Lowe
Harvey Lowe had the world on a string...literally. In 1932, the Victoria, BC native won the World Yo-Yo championship in London, when he was just 13 years old.
It was a title he would take to his grave when he died in 2009 at the age of 90.
But yo-yos are only part of the Harvey Lowe story. He was a nightclub fixture in Vancouver's Chinatown, was the first Chinese broadcaster in Canada and was once a regular on the Smothers Brothers TV show. Harvey Lowe excelled in play and brought great joy to the world.
