One remembers the year 1957 when the big International Conference shook the people of Pugwash to action.
Leona MacLeod completed a painting of lobsters traps on Pugwash wharf and a 98 year old Charlie Teed presented this wonderful painting to Cyrus Eaton. The event was at Ivan Purdy's cottage West Pugwash where the populace gathered for a cook-out. Cyrus Eaton introduced Anne Jone; in six months they married.
Cyrus Eaton monumental figure in the financial and diplomatic world has many books and reams of print written about him, and rightly so; Charlie Teed, the imposing figure making the presentation that day could have recited enough tales that day to fill a huge book of Lore; but no one thought to listen and record. Now it is too late.
The Start Weekly, Toronto, did an article on "The Thinkers Conference" in 1960 and fortunately featured a good picture of Charlie Teed and his Walrus mustache.
The Star quoted Charlie as saying, "I was a grown man when Eaton came through 70 years ago. I called him Cy then and I see no reason to change now. He doesn't want war and he is doing his best to avoid it. He's a real gentleman."
