A. L. McCrimmon
Chancellor McCrimmon of
McMaster, Toronto, visited Delhi on 20 May 1917 and preached
anniversary services for the Baptist people of that village.
The Methodist Church, being
the largest building in town, was loaned for the occasion, and
packed by an audience anxious to hear a Delhi "old boy"
who has become a national figure.
Abraham Lincoln McCrimmon, to
give the Chancellor his full name, was born in Delhi 52 years ago.
He is a son of Norfolk of whom not only Delhi, but the county may
well be proud.
And he showed his good
judgment in choosing his life's companion from among Norfolk's fair
Mrs. McCrimmon's father was the late Henry W. Anderson of South
Walsingham, in his time one of the leading men of the county.
