Here are links to 29 letters to editors of the New York Times that Cyrus Eaton wrote from 1940 to 1972. https://www.thinkerslodgehistories.com/letters-to-nyt-editors-by-cyrus-eaton.html The subjects range from Einstein, Berlin, Kennedy, Communist China, Laos, Cuba, Wall Street, Nixon, Elections, Spying to Nuclear War. I wonder what he would write today????
Comments when I asked on Pictorial History of Pugwash Facebook Site for identification of this man: I believe this photo was taken in the 1950s and that visitors who were attending Thinkers Lodge Conference visited his shop. Photo is archived at Western Reserve Historical Society in Cleveland, Ohio.

Eleanor Cochrane I believe he is Walter Simmons Pugwash Blacksmith my Dad used to take our horses to him for shoeing. also I believe he repaired wagon wheels Not certain. Long time ago ha! EJC Eleanor Carter Cochrane.
Edith Mcfadden Croft May I inject an amusing incident to the Mr. Simmons who was the blacksmith. For you who remember John and Campbell Fraser who lived in the old Weatherby house beside the (then) railway track. Campbell told a funny story, he took a horse to be shoed to the Simmons shop. When the animal was attended to, the tradesman said to Campbell "that's twenty five cents and how's your Mother?" Okay, I don't expect the younger folk to understand that humor but people laughed at that story for such a long time. Good jokes last and last.
