To explain how this book began, we must go back in time to the 1990s, Karen Killian had answered the call for volunteers to clean up the TI Museum's basement. While tidying up, she came across a box of torn, dirty, and musty old newspapers from NYC.

These articles may have been lost to time if they hadn’t been discovered and preserved by a chance meeting with Karen Killian. Karen has made it her personal mission to preserve the history of the Thousand Islands. . .
