|HISTORY OF THE CORNWALL CHEESE AND BUTTER BOARD|
|WILLIAM C. LEITCH |
|ILLIAM C. LEITCH, a member of the firm of The Laurin & Leitch Engineering and Construction Company, of Montreal, is a native of Cornwall, who, by perseverance, ability and integrity, has become highly successful in contracting and has established an enviable reputation throughout Canada as being at the top of his profession. |
William C. Leitch
Mr. Leitch, who is only fifty-one years of age, is a son of the late William Leitch, of the South Branch, Cornwall Township, and has always taken an active interest in farming and farming pursuits and eight years ago purchased the fine 112-acre farm on the East Front, located E. 1/2 Lot 1, Cornwall Township. He has, perhaps, as fine a herd of cattle as can be found in the three United Counties. He feeds and disposes of fifty beef cattle annually.
The many and varied interests of Mr. Leitch in his contracting business have necessitated his engaging the services of a farm manager, and Mr. David Wilson ably fills this position. Mr. Leitch makes week-end trips from Montreal to Cornwall throughout the year to give personal directions in connection with the supervision of his farm property.
He takes a very pardonable pride in his really beautiful barns, which are generally recognized as the most up-to-date and best equipped in Eastern Ontario.
