The Cape Breton Miners’ Museum at Glace Bay was officially opened. Prominent community leader and philanthropist Nina Cohen unveiled the cornerstone for the museum. She was instrumental in founding the Men of the Deeps choir in the summer of 1966. The Museum is currently under-going renovations in preparation for the 2018 tourist season. In 2017 the Museum had over 16,000 visitors. (Also see Nina Cohen, March 8, 1991.).
