Vital Statistics

The Guardian

21 July 1969
Charlottetown Guardian, Monday, 21 July 1969

This issue of the Guardian, like the Halifax Chronicle-Herald of the same date mentioned elsewhere on this site, was amongst several old newspapers that were saved by my grandfather. And, like the Chronicle-Herald, it was kept since the headline announced the first man to walk on the moon.

I am presenting the following information exactly as it was originally recorded, including the spelling and grammar. I DO NOT have any further information on any of the people named below. This data is offered solely in hope that other researchers might find it useful.
