A well known local author and historian has passed away.
C.W. (Bill) Hunt died Friday at Belleville General Hospital.
Hunt authored several books and countless articles, with his main interest
being the prohibition era in the 1920s.
His most well-known work was the book Booze, Boats and Billions, the story of the daring
men shipping alcohol illegally on big speedboats between the U.S. and Canada across Lake Ontario through
the Quinte region.
