Ottawa Citizen, “Dirty Work on Major’s Hill Park,” ​Ottawa Citizen​. October 17th, 1972.

From fall 1972 until summer of 1974, Major’s Hill was the site of an archeological dig for the home of Col John. While initially a successful dig, a year later it was discovered that the artifacts and reports that were intended to be sent to the National War Museum had in fact gone missing. After more than a decade of searching, no leads could be found and the agency in charge of the investigation conceded on two possibilities: one, accept that the data was lost and could never be found; or two, that the documents would “turn up someday.”
