LC Gagnon and the CPR

Born February 19, 1927,

LC Gagnon was employed by the Canadian Pacific Railway
at its Windsor Station headquarters,

in the office of the Auditor of Freight Receipts, 
October 6, 1947 to October 1, 1949


in the office of the Auditor of Passenger Receipts,
October 1, 1949 to July 1, 1951.

He eventually left his accountancy studies and duties
in favour of completing his degree at Queen's University
and entering the 'family business' of teaching.

His files indicate he was present on a number of tours of Company facilities.
He was still writing and editing articles about Canadian railway subjects 40 years later.

This photo was taken April 19, 1954, at Windsor Station.

This was a Business Education Day Tour to St Luc Yard and Angus Shops.
