Notice biographique

Petro Danyliuk was born on March 31, 1923 in Seliatyn, a village in Bukovyna, (then in Romania, now Ukraine). He finished his secondary education in Seliatyn and post-secondary education in the Czech town of Podebrady (1943-1944). He immigrated to Canada in 1947 and received his Canadian citizenship in 1958. Upon his arrival in Canada, Danyliuk quickly became very involved with the Ukrainian community.

He was editor of Holos Molodi (1948-1953) and a distributor of the journal Bukovyna published in Philadelphia (1953-1957). Danyliuk was also a contributor to many Ukrainian newspapers: New Pathway, Canadian Farmer, and Ukrainian Voice. He served on many committees of Ukrainian national organizations, including secretary of the Ukrainian National Youth Federation and the Ukrainian War Veterans Association. In 1970-78 he chaired the auditing commission and then served on the Board of Directors (1978-81) of the Carpathia Credit Union. From 1971 to 1977, he served as secretary on the executive board of the Ukrainian Fraternal Society. He was employed for many years as a linotypist and printer at The New Pathway and later, from 1971 to 1989, at Trident Press, publisher of The Ukrainian Voice and The Canadian Farmer.

His biggest contribution to the Ukrainian community was his collection of Ukrainica, rare calendars, journals, newspapers, pamphlets, books, and correspondence of various Ukrainian institutions and organizations in Canada: including the Ukrainian Self-Reliance League, the Ukrainian Canadian Committee - KUK, the Ukrainian National Federation (UNO), the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN), the Canadian Ukrainian Youth Association, and the Ukrainian Fraternal Society.

As a member of the executive board of many Ukrainian organizations, Petro Danyliuk inherited material from the prominent community organizer and educator, Ivan Syrnyk (John Syrnick), who was also a member of the executive board of the Ukrainian Self-Reliance League, Ukrainian Canadian Committee, Consistory of Ukrainian Greek-Orthodox Church of Canada, St. Andrew's College, and editor of Ukrainian Voice (1947-1970).

Petro Danyliuk passed away on November 30, 2010.
