Joe Singer was born in Krakow, Poland. He served in the Polish Air Force at the onset of World War II, and was detained for a time in a Siberian work camp. Towards the end of the war, he was retrained as a pilot in Canada and flew 23 missions over Nazi Germany, and served as a navigator for food drops over Holland, until they were ultimately liberated by Canadian troops.
In 1954, Singer emigrated to Canada and designed several local schools, as well as the Board of Education building at 100 Main Street West, and Temple Anshe Sholom in Westdale.
Currently, the School Board intends to sell 100 Main Street West, Singer's signature work, to McMaster University, who plans to demolish the building for a new development.
