A Century of Sport...
The Northwestern Ontario Sports Hall of Fame (NWOSHF) and the Thunder Bay Finnish Canadian Historical Society (TBFCHS) have joined forces to capture and explore the rich history of Finnish Canadian sport organizations, athletes and builders in the Thunder Bay area.
The 150 page book contains information about the arrival and settlement of people of Finnish heritage to the Thunder Bay area, the development of a variety of sport clubs, biographies of Northwestern Ontario Sports Hall of Fame Inductees who are of Finnish heritage, and a wonderful photo gallery full of images from the collections of both the NWOSHF and the TBFCHS.
Through the research and writing efforts of Laura Nigro, David Nicholson and Diane Imrie, the long held dream of creating a permanent record of the rich history of Thunder Bay's Finnish Canadian sports organizations, athletes and builders has finally been realized through this publication.
