title D.R. Morrison: Island Builder
creator Mirrison, J. Clinton Jr.
subject Island Magazine
subject Prince Edward Island Museum
description When Summerside's D. R. Morrison died in 1930, local newspapers lauded his achievements and lamented his passing. In the manner of obituaries, they extolled his virtues with expressions of esteem such as "honored citizen", "good neighbour", "congenial friend", and "prominent contractor". Morrison would truly have been flattered, for he was a proud man. And yet, the eulogy he would perhaps have preferred above all was the one that said simply, "a genial man of progressive ideas".
