title Lord Selkirk of Prince Edward Island
creator Bumsted, J. M.
subject Island Magazine
subject Prince Edward Island Museum
description Ladies and Gentlemen, it is a pleasure to be here in Belfast this evening, talking about Lord Selkirk before an audience which includes a number of descendants of those who emigrated under his auspices to Prince Edward Island at the beginning of the nineteenth century. Many of the surnames of people I met before the lecture are familiar to me from the records of the early Selkirk settlement, and I will not attempt to list them only for fear of leaving one out. It is also very fitting that we should be assembled here tonight to talk about Selkirk, for the year 1978 marks the 175th anniversary of the founding of the first Selkirk settlements on the Island but a short distance from this room.
