His professional life was dedicated to learning more about and teaching Canada about the history of our country. One of his personal passions has always been to learn more about local histories and share them with the broader community. He was a founding member of the Louisbourg Heritage Society, Deputy Mayor of the Town of Louisbourg (Nova Scotia) and wrote many books and articles about the town of Louisbourg and the surrounding area. He called Louisbourg home for more than 30 years. Until his passing on October 14th, 2019, he resided in Cornwall, Ontario near his home town of Long Sault, Ontario.
I love seeing those older pictures of where i grew up.I lived on Havenside at that time but got married and moved to Catalone for a few years then back to Louisbourg.From there Harold and i moved to Charlottetown P.E.I. when he was trasfered to Parks Canada here on the Island.In 2005 Harold passed away at 65 years old.I think u both knew each other.I as well worked as a tour guide at the Fortress from 1968 till 1975.I will save these pictures with all the others i have in a folder which i look at every once in awhile.Thanks for sharing.
