OBIT # 2197 – MORNING CHRONICLE – 4 JULY 1917
Pugwash Man Committed Suicide JAMES R. REID Shoots Himself in Eastern Trust Building on
Prince Street. A sad tragedy occurred in the Dominion Police Office in the Eastern Trust
Building, June 27th, between 5 o'clock and half past five o'clock, when JAMES R. REID of New
Glasgow, drew a revolver and shot himself through the heart expiring immediately before the
eyes of his wife with whom he had been conversing. Up to a few days ago the deceased man had
been a member of the Dominion Police, but had come here in the first place on reconstruction
work. The police were informed of the tragedy by Inspector WEST and the medical examiner, Dr.
FINN, was called on the scene, after which the body was removed to Snow's Undertaking rooms.
Shortly after the arrival of Detective KENNEDY a young woman with whom the deceased had an
appointment arrived and when informed of the sad occurrence fainted. It later transpired that
arrangements had been completed for the marriage of REID and herself today. The trunks were
packed and passports at hand for the departure for the United States of the couple after the
marriage. The young woman was assisted home, but was considerably shocked by the dreadful
occurrence. It appears that REID had posed as a single
man, although it was rumored that he was married. This he had denied to her, at the same time
telling her that if ever anything happened to prevent her marrying him he would shoot her and
then himself. He was a young man, being 21 years of age.

FRASER, F. Murray - Husband of Anne of Calgary passed away suddenly on March 12 at the
age of 59. Murray is also survived by sons, Scott, Andrew and Hugh; their wives, Vicki, Janine
and Amy; and grandchildren, Samuel and Lauren; as well as parents-in-law, Gordon and Marion
Archibald; great-uncle, Doug Fraser; great-aunt, Jean Fraser, all of Halifax; and brothers-inlaw,
David, George and Bill Archibald; and many cherished relatives. Murray earned his BA at
Dalhousie University, served as its student council president and won the Malcolm Honor Award
in recognition of
his contribution to student life. While at Dal Law School, he won its highest advocacy award
(The Smith Shield). The MacKenzie King Travelling Scholarship and the Newton Rowell
Scholarship took him to the University of London where he received his LLM in 1962. Murray
returned to Halifax to practise law before teaching law at Queen's and Dalhousie universities. He
became Associate Dean of Law at Dal and in 1973 worked with the Law Reform
Commission of Canada. In 1974, the Fraser family moved to Victoria where he became the
founding Dean of Law at University of Victoria. He served as U.VIC's Vice President
(Academic) from 1983-88 and then moved with Anne to
Calgary where he was appointed President and Vice Chancellor of the University of Calgary. He
received Dal Law School's Weldon Award and the Begbie Award from UVIC, both for unselfish
public service. His community
activities ranged from acting as the director of a YMCA camp to serving as president of the
YMCA in Halifax (the third generation of his family to hold that division); from coaching little
league baseball and supporting his sons' many teams to encouraging an appreciation of the Arts.
In recognition of his leadership in education, Dalhousie, UVIC, and Memorial University of
Newfoundland presented him with honorary doctoral degrees. In the fall of 1996, after he had
stepped down as president, the U of C awarded Murray and Anne honorary doctoral degrees to
recognize their
contributions to education and the community, which they have both demonstrated, across the
country, throughout their lives. During his term as president of the U of C, he was as likely to
appear at a varsity game with Anne as to provide leadership at a meeting on the university's
strategic direction. Through times of turbulance at the U of C, his warmth,
moral authority and tremendous leadership skills carried the university. Since stepping down
from the university, he had been appointed to the corporate boards of Crestar Energy, ING
(International Netherlands Group) and had joined the Board of Directors of the Canadian Institute
of Advanced Research. His joy was found at the family cottage at St. Margarets Bay where the
Fraser clan and many friends have gathered for more than 35 years. A memorial service will be
held 3 p.m. Monday, March 17 in Jack Simpson Gymnasiumm at the University of Calgary. A
memorial service in
Halifax will be announced for a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate
donations to the Murray and Anne Fraser Endowment Fund, c/o The Developments Office at the
University of Calgary, 2500 University Drive NW, Calgary, Alberta, T2N 1N4. His nature can
best be captured in the words of the people he cared about and whose lives he touched (his
students): ``He was a mensch,'' ``He always knew me,'' ``He was at all-hour games,'' ``He was
simply my mentor -always,'' ``What a wonderful smile,''``He listened to us as students,'' ``Murray
took a big risk with me,''
``Murray and Anne were always there for us,'' ``We were marginalized and he gave us a chance
to come into the centre,'' ``He believed in the promise of his country,'' ``It hurts too much talk.''

OBIT # 2566 – EVENING NEWS – 21 OCT 1933
There passed away on Wednesday morning, Oct. 18th, Archie Nicholson, seventy-seven, after an
adventurous and useful career. Though he had been in ill health the past few months, his death
came as a distinct shock and sense of loss to many. His passing will be mourned as the passing of
a true friend and righteous citizen, as a man who throughout his entire life maintained the cause
of justice, and as a man who carried out his exacting duties of policeman in a fearlessly,
honorable and gentlemanly manner. The deceased was born in Port Morien, a son of the late
Archibald and Margaret MacLeod Nicholson. His parents both came to Cape Breton directly from
Scotland, and were amongst the earliest pioneers in the Port Morien district. On their old pioneer
homestead coal was discovered and worked, being known as the Blockhouse Seam. It has since
been abandoned. Archie Nicholson came to Pictou County when a young man of 23. The stern
courage and determination of his parents were strong within him, and coupled with his splendid
physique, foretold that here was a young man headed for success. He engaged in coal mining for
some years and worked in the Drummond and Acadia Pits, Westville, Vale Pit, Thorburn and the
Ford and Old Slopes at Stellarton. He was one of the men who sank the first slopes of the Albion
Mine. He later moved to Wyoming Territory (now a State) in the United States, but came back to
Pictou County two years afterwards. In 1884 he entered the Police Service in the Town of
Stellarton, and was the first man ever to hold that position. From 1884 to 1898 he served the
Towns of Stellarton and Westville, and in those days, with new mines being opened up, laborers
coming into the country and present day respect for law and order held by a minority, his was no
easy task. In 1898 he resigned and entered the Canadian National Railways. Police Service until
1902. In that year he affiliated with the New Glasgow Force, and therein labored until 1918 when
he resigned being the Chief of the Force a t the time of his resignation. In the same year he again
entered the C.N.R. Service and retired in 1931, after a varied and busy career. His tact and
efficiency in handling men gained for him respect and admiration from persons in all walks of
life. Although retired for some two years prior to his death, he maintained a keen interest in
public affairs and Police work, and was familiar personage around his adopted town. In the month
of April last he met with a heavy fall and sustained a broken hip, from which he failed to recover.
All that medical skill could do proved of no avail and passed away as above stated on Wednesday
morning. He had been a familiar figure in New Glasgow for many years, and now that his earthly
journey is over, to us all he becomes a memory to cherish and perpetuate for years to come. He
married Jean Cullen, of Lorne, who predeceased him seven years ago. There survive him four
sons, Sylvanus, Thorburn; Tom, Stellarton; Davis and Hugh, New Glasgow. Two daughters and
two sons predeceased him, Mary (Mrs. Jack Logan), Margaret (Mrs. Dan C. McLellan), Archie
and William. He is also survived by three brothers, Neil A., Deputy Inspector of Mines, at
Sydney Mines; John, Alberta; Alex in Dominion, C. B. A sister Kate (Mrs. McDonald), Sydney
predeceased him two years ago. The funeral was held on Friday afternoon from his late home on
Nelson Street. A legion of friends and acquaintances gathered to pay their last respects to a
departed friend and offer solace to the bereaved family. The New Glasgow Police Force and the
C.N.R. Police of the Truro-Sydney Division attended in a body, as did Albion Lodge, No. 5. A. F.
& A. M and Mt Lebanon Chapter of which the deceased was a member. The service was
conducted by Rev. Norman D. Kennedy, minister of First Presbyterian Church, who in the course
of his address extolled the virtues and paid a splendid tribute to the deceased. Mr. Rod C.
McLeod sang a solo, "Shadows," with a wealth of sympathetic interpretation and feeling. Two
hymns were sung, :Jesus Lover of My Soul,' and :Shall We Gather at the River," Mrs. Norman D.
Kennedy acting as accompanist. Members of the Masonic Lodge acted as pall bearers. The long
cortege slowly and sorrowfully wended its way to Brookside Cemetery where the deceased was
interred with full Masonic honors. Archie Nicholson has passed to the after and eternal life; his
life on earth is an example for men to judge their standards of devotion to duty, justice, courage
and honor. Relatives from out of town attending the funeral were Neil A. Nicholson and son
Turnbull, Sydney Mines; Dr. Murray Nicholson, Springhill; Miss Rosella Nicholson, R.N.,
Pictou; Lauchie Nicholson, Mrs. Dan Nicholson, Jack McAskill, Glace Bay. The policemen of
the C.N.R. between Truro and Sydney attended in a body under William Tupper, Stellarton.
