Lauchie McDougall
Lauchie McDougall (1896-1954), n.d.

McDougall, a farmer at Wreck House on the southwest coast, was contracted by the Newfoundland railway to judge wind conditions and contact Port aux Basques when he felt it was unsafe for trains to travel through the area. He became an enduring part of the "local colour" of Newfoundland railway operations.
