History / Biography
The following is an extract from the reprint of this issue in 1992: “The reprinting of the following newspaper article is the ‘brain child’ of Mrs. Muriel Saunders of the Arnprior Museum Board. It is a cooperative effort of the Arnprior Museum Board, the Arnprior & District Historical Society and the Arnprior and District Archives - to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of the Town of Arnprior. A printout of the microfilmed article was obtained by Muriel Saunders from the National Library of Canada (No. 797566). The printout, which is very difficult to read, was transcribed by Peter Hessel with a Macintosh Classic II computer (using Microsoft Word 4.0 software program) and then laser-printed. The text of this edition of the article is protected by copyright (1992) and this reprint cannot be reproduced or transmitted in any form without permission in writing by the Arnprior and District Museum.” Not all articles from the original edition were reproduced in the reprint. Pages 3 and 4 were not available when the reprint was prepared. The photographs were not reproducible. The photos and other illustrations used in the reprint edition came from other sources. The entire text of the reprint is available from the computer file “Old Saturday Globe” in Peter Hessel’s Archives Folder. The text of the original edition has not yet been transcribed.
