Name of creator
The Grand Manan Chamber of Commerce on Grand Manan Island, New Brunswick, began as the Grand Manan Board of Trade, incorporated in 1927. From all available minutes and financial papers, it appears that the active organization began in May 1944. The first secretary-treasurers were: Walter S. Ogilvie, 1944-1945; J. Wallace McLean, 1946-1947; Kenneth W. Ingersoll, 1947-1948; L. Keith Ingersoll, 1948-1950; Leon G. Small, 1950-1951; and Rolfe W. Cronk, 1951-1952.
The name was changed to the Grand Manan Chamber of Commerce in 1980. The Chamber has been involved in improving ferry service, mail service, and road conditions. They have provided recreational activities through fairs and war celebrations. They have sought advancements for agriculture, education, housing, environment, health care, and lately, aquaculture. In 2002 the Chamber of Commerce is still active and working with the Grand Manan Tourism Association to continue improving life on Grand Manan Island.
Keith Ingersoll and Eric Allaby, as secretaries or secretary-treasurers of the Grand Manan Board of Trade, compiled these papers and donated them to the Genealogical Society ca. 1989.
