Archibald, Sanford Wellington "Barney" - 92, of Granville Ferry, passed away on February 18th, 2001, at the Berkley in Halifax. Born in Halifax, he was the son of the late George E. and Ruby Lena (Shaver) Archibald. He is predeceased by his wife, Jean Brittain of Saint John, New Brunswick. He was educated at Halifax Academy and was a graduate of Dalhousie University (B.Com 1930). He was associated with the Halifax Herald Circulation Department from 1929-1937 opening up a number of new areas for distribution including Prince Edward Island. From 1937-1939 he was Circulation Manager of the St. John Citizen. In 1939 he moved to New York to work with Dr. Kenneth Leslie ( a prominent Nova Scotia Poet) to establish the Protestant Digest and served as Promotion Manager for a number of years. The Editorial Board included many prominent theologians including Dr. John McKay of the Princeton Theological Seminary and Drs. Paul Tillich and George Butterworth. Lay members included Mrs. Eleanor Rossevelt, Harold Ickes, Secretary of State, and John Hammond. In 1954 he founded Printolith Corporation of New York with which he was associated until his retirement to Granville Ferry in 1976. He was an active member and officer of Huguenot Yacht Club and serviced as an elder of both First Presbyterian Church in New Rochelle, New York and Huguenot Memorial Church in Pelham Manor, New York. He directed the Christian Education programs at both for a number of years. During his retirement years he was active in a number of local organizations including serving on the Board of the Canadian Bible Society, Halifax and Children and Family Services of Annapolis County. He served as Treasurer of the Annapolis Royal Historical Association and chaired the fundraising campaigns of the Annapolis Royal Branch of the Canadian Red Cross for many years. He arranged the transfer of the Annapolis Royal Lighthouse from the Canadian Coast Guard to the Town, setting the stage for many other future transfers. He also was instrumental in arranging or assisting in the publishing of a number of local historical works including "The Electric City". He was a member of both St. George and St. Andrew United Church, Ananpolis Royal and Fort Massey, Halifax. His body has been donated to Dalhousie Medical School and he will be buried next to his wife at the Mills Burial Ground, next to his home, in Granville Ferry. A memorial service will be held to honour and celebrate his life this summer in Annapolis Royal. Donations may be made to the IWK Grace Health Centre, The Canadian Cancer Society or a charity of choice.
