Letter to the Editor
Re: “A golden era of Queen’s hockey,”
Issue #1-2009

I was excited to see the article about the 100th anniversary of the Tricolour men’s hockey team winning the Allan Cup. I was especially pleased to see the emphasis on my great-uncle, Vernon “Bucky” Crawford. He was an overall great sportsman, playing hockey, baseball, and football, all with the same spirit and proficiency. He and his brother, Reg, my grandfather, played together and opposite each other on most of the Kingston sports teams.

The Crawford family line at Queen’s goes back to Vernon’s father, Capt. Robert Crawford, Arts 1869, a member of the Board of Trustees from approximately 1896 until his death in 1940 and continues through to the 21st century. Thank you for bringing some of history of my family to light.
