About the 4th Collectors' Edition Since the publication of the FOURTH COLLECTORS' EDITION, we've received a number of letters asking who are the people pictured on the Front Cover. We've also received a few letters and phone calls with information. The beautiful woman alone is Gladys Maude Harlow, born in London, England, 1897. Her family came to Halifax in 1907, then moved to North Sydney just prior to World War I. Her father worked with Mr. Cook, a highway con? tractor, building the railway through Sydney Mines and North Sydney. Gladys married Willard M. Griffin of Isaac's Harbour, Guysborough County. Her brother, R.A. Harlow, wrote: "My sister was an ardent member of the British Israel Federation. She was well-versed and know? ledgeable in the Bible, and could hold her own with most of our clergy. She was a staunch sup? porter of the Royal Family, and was very disap? pointed when Canada changed the National or offi? cial flag. Similar to the old-time Presbyterians, she was very strict on religious and social mat? ters, but she did possess a kind heart She passed away in April of 1972." We also heard from Moira and Milton MacKenzie of North Sydney. They wrote to tell us that the couple pictured on the cover is the late Mr. and Mrs. Fred Miles. He was a local grocer. And the family pictured is that of the late Capt. and Mrs. John D. MacKenzie. "On mother's knee is Donald C. MacKenzie, New Glasgow; younger girl with hair ribbon: Mary Florence, deceased; boy in sailor suit: Capt. Milton F. MacKenzie, North Sydney; boy in front in romper suit: John Duncan, deceased." In a future issue we hope to offer more about Capt. John D. MacKenzie, sea captain and superintendent of pilots, as well as an honoured hero for a res? cue at sea.
