HISTORY OF THE CORNWALL CHEESE AND BUTTER BOARD
 
W.A. Craig
Former Secretary-Treasurer
Cornwall Cheese and Butter Board

W.A. Craig, Former Secretary-Treasurer Cornwall Cheese and Butter Board written article for this publication, has said, "We too often overlook the debt we owe to those who struggled in earlier years with small things to bring about the better conditions which we are enjoying to-day."
       These are the names of the pioneers who made possible the formation of the Cornwall Cheese and Butter Board, and who will always be held in grateful remembrance by Cheese Board patrons, farmers and citizens generally:
       Archibald Denny, for nineteen years President of the Board, its President when it was organized and its President this year. The name of Mr. Denny will always be intimately associated with the Cheese Board. The activities of the Board have always centered about the capable and energetic figure of Mr. Denny. About his person have revolved the many and varied labours and interests of this organization. Mr. John A. Chisholm, in a specially written article in this publication, has paid fitting and eloquent tribute to Mr. Denny.
