History in the obits: return to 1937?
Posted by Christopher Moore
History is where you find it. Yesterday the newspaper death notices included Robert Laird Borden. Not the prime minister (he died in 1937) but his great-nephew and namesake born 1931. And today they include Howie Morenz. Not the hockey legend (he died in 1937 too), but his son and namesake, born 1927, who never made it farther than the minor leagues.
