My warmest thanks go to all those who gave invaluable help in this project: Mel Johnston for his front page design; Ed Thomas, author of Dead but not Forgotten; David Frank for his wise counsel; Alan Frank for his varied skills and constant support; Sheila Cornett for persistence on some rare photos; also David Croswell, CAW Local 200; Workers’ Heritage Centre Museum of Ottawa; Alan L. Brown whose website on Ontario plaques has been a  useful reference:; and finally Marion Ursilla Frank, without whose inspiration and labour this work would never have been realized.
