You may have already tried this but just in case you haven't.... Kenora has a daily newspaper, The Miner and News, and it is online. This newspaper does have an archives and might look for you. Also often, the newspaper will print interesting historical bits and ask for readers to add details. The newspaper is found at www.kenoradailyminerandnews.com
....... on a lighter note, in my circle of friends we refer to the newspaper as the 'Minus the News' however we look forward to every issue. I go online every day to read it.
