7h8 close of the eighth year of our
eXistence as tne Canadian Railroad
Eistortcal .A_ssociation finds us
successfully pursuin~ the ends and
objectives of our particular field
of activity; namely the ~ar~ing and
preservation of historical railway
sites, the collection and presp.rva­
tion of all manner of objects, re­
cords and miscellaneous material
appertaining to the rail~ays of the
past. Nor, do we confine ourselves
exclusively to the Canadian field,
as our narlie and ti tle V10111d indic­
ate. As a fact, we are, I may as­
suredly say, equally interested in
the early ~istory and development
of the rai 1 ays of the Nor ld, and
especially those of the Hnited
States and of Great Britain, with
both of which Canadas railways
have always had inti~ate ties of
relationship. Indeed, it wOl.l1d not
serve our pood interest if we were
to pay no ~ttention to the fields
of history outside of our own.
~e have found an affinity of in­
terest also, in the early history
of stea~-boat navigation. And while
this is definitely sonething a~Jart
fro~ that of the railways, it serVffi
our interests, and cOYV.nends itself
to all railway historians; for, as
the stearnboats and the railways
were linked in serving the trans­
port lines in their beginnings, so
shall th8y remain lin1<:ed in histor­
ical records.
Our lecture platform has during
the past year been graced by sever­
al speakers whose topics of dis­
course have ~roved intp.resting and
instructive.-In this respect I may
pay tribute to Ald. J. Alex.E&~ison~
lir. R.C.Johnston, of the C.N.R.,
Mr. F.A. Pouliot, of the C.P.R.,
and Ald.John Verry, and our fellow
mOBber, R.V.V.Nicholls. It is our
intent ion arld Ollr sincere desire
to develop this feature of our
Assooiati~n. The high standard we
have soUg~t to attain to in t~e
past has· cunt inu8 d to bemaintamed,
and mIr sDeakers and their themes
af discus~i8n are always and ever
interesting. Moreover, our plat­
form is our ~10St Dotent factor of
,)ublici ty. Our Association stands
to be jlldgp.d and valu3d accord L1.g
to the representative standing of
our Dlatforlll speaJc8rs.
An;thc;r stimulating feature of
our Association is our fine weath,?r

! CO~1)any: To 2:lOSt Burlingtonj.ans, Dan is t~le v::rsonification of much I
that Lake Champlain m~ans to this city. His 2xpansive grin is like the,
beauty of the suns2t over thc Lake and his boomi~g voice like t~e roar
of the waves against the rocks in time of storm. His usually unruffled
disposition is emblematic of the placidity of the Lake when the winds
IOf heaven breathe softly and thp-re is calm upon the waters.
