We regret to report the passing, at Toronto, on December 10, 1979. of Charles Barker, member number 15 of the Toronto Marine Historical Society.

Charlie Barker was a longtime observer and enthusiast of passenger steamers, and amassed an interesting collection of original photographs of such vessels, many of which he showed at various T.M.H.S. meetings over the years. In particular, he greatly assisted in the preparation of our Ship of the Month No. 72, the famous and much-admired (especially by Charlie) steamer CHIPPEWA of the Niagara River service.

We extend to Charlie's family our deepest sympathy on his passing. We of T.M.H.S. have lost a valued member and friend.
