Magazine Articles about Island Falls

The Northern Lights was published by the Hudson Bay Mining & Smelting Company in Flin Flon, Manitoba.

We are indebted to Bill Southworth, long-time Island Falls correspondent, for having written these articles documenting "the lives, happiness and sorrows of its people," and to his son, Dick Southworth, for generously providing us the opportunity to complete our collection of articles. Incidentally, Dick pointed out that the December 1960 issue was inadvertently numbered Volume 20, which resulted in the numbering error.
