MEMBRE HONORÉ

Biographie

In honouring the late Don Norton, New Brunswick pays tribute to an air force navigator who made the supreme sacrifice in 1944, an honour graduate of Mount Allison University, a student leader, baseball, tennis and football player, outstanding skier, superb track and field star and gentleman.But it was in track and field that this native of Milltown was most outstanding.His performance in 1942 in the 220 yard dash and the long jump still stand as native New Brunswick records.Three of his other records in his four year career were broken only as recently as 1966.His alma mater has perpetuated his memory by a memorial plaque, a donation to the university by the member of his class of 1942. Enrolled in the New Brunswick Sports Hall of Fame, June 27, 1970
