Interesting account, i believe I had read it before, very detailed.

For many years after the war, it was very common to find remnants of boom breakaway cut logs piled up along the shore at the southern end of Whitefish Bay, LOW (from the Alfred Inlet camp cuttings). The fellow (Oscar Brusven), (who was the manager of the Turtle Portage Camp, where we stayed), for years thereafter, frequently filled his boat with the logs, which he brought back and made into firewood. He was always careful to pick only logs which were on rocky shores, as the logs which had drifted onto sandy beaches were impregnated with sand, which could ruin his saw. Lots of memories.

Bill
