Halifax Chronicle-Herald, Monday, 21 July 1969

This issue of the Chronicle-Herald was included amongst a group of old newspapers that had been saved by my grandfather. I DO NOT have any further information on any of the people named, nor are any of them connected to my own research. They are simply presented in hope they might assist other researchers.

Why did my grandfather save this particular paper? It was because of the lead story on page one - news that was, in fact, the main headline of papers around the world. The day before, on 20 July 1969, Neil Armstrong became the first man to walk on the moon.

The information is presented exactly as in the original article, including spelling and grammar.

Annie Kerr, 74, Former CNR Ticket Clerk, Dies

Annie Ethel Kerr, for 43 years an employee of Canadian National Railways, and the first woman to be hired by the CNR passenger department, died in the Halifax Infirmary Sunday. She was 74.

Mis Kerr, daughter of the late James and Mary (McEachern) Kerr, was born in Halifax and attended College Street and St. Patrick's High Schools.

She joined the CNR staff in 1917 as a stenographer. Two years later she was made accountant. In 1931 she became clerk in the district passenger's office and in another 12 years was made chief clerk in the city ticket office.

When Miss Kerr reached retirement age in 1960 her departure from the CNR elicited numerous expressions of regret not only from her fellow workers but from the public.

At that time one of her superiors was quoted as saying: "It takes more than skill in interpreting tariffs; facility in preparing involved itineraries; more than the knack of remembering faces, rates, train times and peculiarities of schedules to make the success of one's profession that Annie Kerr has made of hers.

"On both sides of the counter she has made a lasting impression.

She had a truly magnetic personality.

"Once people did business with her, they wouldn't talk to anybody else.

"They'd queue up to deal with Annie and sh'd ignore everybody else until the person across the counter went away satisfied. Didn't matter how long it took, the rest just had to wait. They knew, though, that when it came their turn they'd get the same service."

One in whom the work habit was so firmly ingrained was unable to accept a life of leisure. Following a short vacation Miss Kerr accepted a position with the Simpson-Hurst Travel Agency (now the P. Lawson Agency) where here wealth of knowledge and experience proved invaluable. She retired only last December.

An active church worker Miss Kerr was a parishioner of St. Theresa's and a member of the Children of Mary Sodality and the Catholic Women's League.

She was a board member of the Railway Employees Credit Union, the Retired Railway Employees Auxiliary and the Halifax Co-Op Society.

Surviving are one sister, Alice, one brother, Thomas, and two nieces, all of Rockville, Conn.

The body is at Cruikshank's Funeral Home, Robie Street. Mass will be offered in St. Theresa's Church Wednesday at 8 a.m. Burial will be in Mount Olivet cemetery.
