Notes
The Volume entitled “History of the Village” has a Table of Contents [page 3], although the numbering is slightly off.

Braeside Tweedsmuir Curator, 1959-1965: Mrs. Forrest Merrifield; Committee: Mrs. James Beattie and Mrs. Phil Armstrong

Note about the wooden cover, from p. 3, Volume 1:
"Braeside has only one industry, Gillies Bros. Lumber Mill.

Therefore, it was decided by the curator, Mrs. Forrest Merrifield and her committee, Mrs. Phil Armstrong and Mrs. James Beattie, that a cover of wood was the most appropriate for the village Tweedsmuir History.

Mr. Erwin Graham, a carpenter in the village and an employee of Gillies Bros., donated the wood and made the cover in June, 1964.

Braeside Women's Institute bought the binder fixtures.

Ray Rouselle of Arnprior did the lettering and painting on the cover."
