Editor, Jefferson College Times
What follows is the most recent issue of the Jefferson College Times, modified for the electronic medium.
Revised September 2000
The Jefferson College Historical Society will next meet on Wednesday September 27, 2000, at 8 p.m. in the rooms of the society, North Central Avenue, Canonsburg, located on the lower floor of the auditorium building. Guests are welcome. The board of directors will meet at 7:30.
Our September program will be presented by Charles Kovach, engineer and artist. He has followed a family tradition of working in the coal and coke industry, though in his case, it is work in pen and ink and graphite.
Mr. Kovach has collected mining artifacts for many years for historical and artistic purposes.
The term, letters, is not precisely true in this electronic era. Any more, missives are more likely to arrive by e-mail. Digital or analog, they are appreciated.
This murky photograph, a side view of John McMillan's manse, shows some of his descendants, the Fulton family, who lived in the house. John McMillan's log school can be seen just beyond the house, on the right side of the photograph. The Fulton Brothers carefully disassembled the log structure in the fall of 1894, and it was moved to Canonsburg the following year.
Thinking about Dan from the perspective of the historical society and a moving eulogy by his son, Gary.
