Morning Star, October 5, 2006, pg. 16

I am looking forward to conducting my annual guided tour of Riverside Cemetery next Sunday, October 12 at 1:30 pm. This year’s tour is entitled “The Veteran’s Memorial Stage Tour of Riverside Cemetery.” We’ll meet at the Stage on the south side of the cemetery near M-99 to begin the tour, and then move east and south in a circular pattern. Are you coming?

One of the persons we will be featuring as part of the tour will be Victor Coulson (1892-1982). A lifelong resident of Albion, Victor worked at the National Spring & Wire Company, and the Albion Bolt Company in his early adult years. Unfortunately, he lost his vision in early adulthood. Despite his handicap, Victor kept active during his lifetime.

Victor was very much interested in Albion history, and in his later years was always thrilled to have a cub scout or youth group come visit him at his Lynn St. home where he would share his knowledge. He especially liked to talk about the “Albion hermit,” David Duncan. Victor would regularly call up to the local radio program “What’s Up” on WALM and share his knowledge to the listeners. He enjoyed gardening, and also collected Indian artifacts. Victor is interred in Section 92 in Riverside Cemetery, next to his wife, Luella Schwer (1894-1974), whom he married in 1915.

From our Historical Notebook this week we present a photograph of Victor Coulson, courtesy of his daughter Armetta Pewsey. How many of our readers remember Victor Coulson?
