Yuzyk was supreme vice-president for Canada in 1970-1974 and supreme director for Canada in 1974-1986; Mr. Hewryk was a UNA auditor for 20 years and supreme director for Canada in 1986-1993.

Another notable Canadian UNA’er in the photo is Bohdan Zorych (standing fourth from left), who was the supreme vice-president for Canada in 1966-1970 and later director of the UNA’s Canadian Office.
A photo archive of UNA history has been launched on the UNA website. It is a work in progress that will be expanded and refined. To take a look, go to unainc.org/una/the-una-is-125-years-old/.
