His father, Arthur Henri Delorey was a very talented man, a Doctor of Optometry, by profession. He invented and patented some tools of his trade. He spoke several languages. The French he learned from his parents, William L. and Emelie (Jodoin) Delorey, included both Parisian and Canadian. He also spoke Greek and Hebrew, and a smattering of other languages.
