Names of Visitors and Statements
||H.E. Montague (North West River), L.G. Montague (North West River),
William Steele (Churchill Falls), N. Thompson (Churchill Falls)*
*Although I did not find a note in the thermos or aluminum battery
box, I have now learned since posting this that Rudy Mauro and Dillon Wallace
III tracked down the monument in the summer of 1973 (see
page 7), which did not seem to have been visited by anyone since 1913.
Mauro is in fact the one who left the thermos for the messages. Thus they
should be considered as the first ones on this list.
