Here’s another great link to a document discovered in the dark recesses of the Stone Building in Selkirk. Don’t ask me how I got a hold of this. I bartered some old lampwick and a dropcloth I had kept hidden in a moldy duffle bag.
Mike Maunder is the Associate Editor, and most likely wrote (and typed) most of this while Byfield published it under his banner. This may have foreshadowed things to come, given Mike’s recognized work as a reporter. Click here or on the picture to get to this very entertaining five-page pdf.
I haven’t been able to date this, but it must be pre-1962, since it makes mention of “Father Tourney (sic)” and he passed that year.
All in all this is a very nice piece of work, considering that it was likely typed up on the IBM Selectric in the Stone Building office in the off hours after study. There was little to no opportunity for editing. The original I procured smells of musty turpentine and lemon gin. Who knows what other documents might be lurking out there? I memorialize it on bedard.com for posterity.
