Earle Lockerby to speak to­day in Malpeque

The Guardian (Charlottetown) - - FOOD / COMMUNITY -

A pre­sen­ta­tion by Earle Lockerby will be given to­day at the Keir Me­mo­rial Mu­seum, Malpeque.

It will be en­ti­tled “Maps and the Army: The Mil­i­tary Ca­reer of Sa­muel Hol­land.”

In re­cent weeks vis­i­tors to the Con­fed­er­a­tion Cen­tre Gallery have mar­velled over Hol­land's very large (13 feet by 9 feet) hand-drawn map of Prince Ed­ward Is­land which has just re­turned to the Is­land af­ter an ab­sence of 250 years. His­to­rian Lockerby will de­scribe how Hol­land's mil­i­tary ca­reer played an im­por­tant role in both his train­ing and his ca­reer suc­cess as a sur­veyor and car­tog­ra­pher.

Peo­ple are asked to note that this pre­sen­ta­tion is in lieu of the pre­vi­ously-sched­uled pre­sen­ta­tion by Katherine Dewar on Is­land Hero­ine and Great War Nurse, Lil­lian Pid­geon. Ef­forts will be made to resched­ule her lec­ture
