Mr. Claude Irvine Passed Away Yesterday In Local Hospital, 1939

    We regret to report the passing of Mr. Claude Irvine which took place yesterday morning in the Whitehorse General Hospital in which institution he had been a patient for several months past.

    The late Mr Irving was one of the real Old-Timers having resided in the Annie Lake district for twenty-five years or more. At one time he was interested, along with three others, in the Tally-Ho mines in the Wheaton district. He was respected by all who knew him who now regret his demise.

    Funeral arrangements had not been completed at the time of going to press.
