Henderson was a fan of credit unions
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
