This booklet, published in 1902, is the only existing copy of that year's Voter's List, as all the others were destroyed in the fire of 1903. The text that is part of the booklet reads:

"List of Voters for the Town of Fort William for the year 1902, Fort William: The Daily Times-Journal Press. 1902."

The hand-written text reads:

"This is the only copy of the Voters' List in existence, with the exception of the copy as signed by the Judge. This list was used at By Law Election to vote money for the new City Hall. All voters Lists were burned on March 9/03- when the Town Hall was destroyed.
A. McNaughton, Clerk"
