Hen­der­son was a fan of credit unions

The Hamilton Spectator - - OPINION -

RE: What­ever you do, don’t use the B word (July 18)

Sandy Shaw’s ar­ti­cle about the credit union move­ment was read with in­ter­est. Of par­tic­u­lar in­ter­est was her ref­er­ence to the 1939 for­ma­tion of the Stelco Credit Union. My search of Hamil­ton’s his­tory re­veals an ear­lier date to 1935 when Nora Frances Hen­der­son upon re­turn from a visit to the United States ex­pounded, ex­cit­edly about credit unions. Hence the Hamil­ton Mu­nic­i­pal Em­ploy­ees Credit Union was born. Just an­other rea­son why her name should have re­mained on the hospi­tal.

For credit union mem­bers may I sug­gest the term, “I deal with a credit union,” if the B word can no longer be used. Pat Saun­ders, Hamil­ton
