The Beardmore Relics, THE FENWICK "PAPERS"

On April 2, 1993, Mr. Fenwick of Thunder Bay, sent the Nipigon Museum his collection of newspaper clippings from 1937 to 1948 as he researched the story of the Beardmore Relics. He was told that the Nipigon Historical Museum had a copy of the "relics" and thought we might be interested.

These old newspaper reporters had a wonderful curiosity themselves and published more 'magazine' style articles than the sketchy stories we read in today's papers seen in the Isle Royale post... the first of the "Fenwick papers".


  1. I remember that Ken had a project to clip articles from old Thunder Bay newspapers - his clippings are now incorporated into Ministry of Mines files in the Thunder Bay office of the Regional Geologist. It was smart of him to think of Nipigon Museum.

  2. Does anyone know more about the norse sword found on copper island, rossport. By a molinski fellow?
