December 26, 1963:"For the last five years, the forest ranger operating the fire tower at Waboose, 190 miles northeast of Port Arthur, Ont., has been a woman, Mrs. Theresa Linard of Nipigon, Ont. Recently transferred and promoted, she had to fly more than 70 miles and hike 2 1/2 miles through the bush to get to work at Waboose. Groceries were dropped by plane." (Winnipeg Free Press)
