    Notes 
    • Obituary: Former London Teacher, Son Die in Snap NWT Snow Storm

      The frozen bodies of Douglas John Meriam and his seven-year old son, John D. Meriam, were found Monday morning at Frobisher Bay. Relatives here said the two went for a walk about 3 p.m. Sunday. A snow storm came up suddenly and they never returned.

      Mr. Meriam, a graduate of London Teachers' College, taught in Ottawa before moving to the Northwest Territories community to teach Eskimo children at John Frobisher School. His wife, the former Maureen Ryan, and their two children, John and daughter Jo-Anne, moved from Ottawa last September.

      Mr. Meriam is survived by his wife and daughter; his mother, Mrs. Josephine Meriam and a sister, Mrs. W.A. (Gwen) Cramm of London; and a brother, David of Winnepeg.

      The boy is survived by grandparents besides Mrs. Meriam. They are Mr. and Mrs. John Ryan.

      The George Logan and Sons Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements. The surviving Meriams have been unable to leave Frobisher Bay for London because of weather conditions and aircraft mechanical trouble.

      The bodies will be at the Logan Funeral Home. Funeral services will be held at noon tomorrow with burial in Woodland Cemetery.
