Mark Robinson’s Journal July 19, 1917

Thursday July 19

Mr Churchill, Undertaker of Huntsville, Ontario, arrived last night and took up body of Tom Thomson artist under direction of Mr. Geo. Thompson of Conn. U.S.A. The body went out on evening train to Owen Sound to be buried in the family plot.

The Arts Association propose having a Memorial Exhibit of Mr. Tom Thomson’s paintings and to place a Memorial in the Park near where he loved to work and sketched so well. Thus ends a career of unselfishness of a gentleman, sportsman, artist and friend of all.
