I thought perhaps WS should have a thread devoted to Tom Thomson, the painter. Though his death was ruled to be caused by drowning, doubts exist about what caused him to drown; if he drowned. There are good resources on the internet for those who want to take a look at this. A couple below - particularly the second one - provide not only background but further interesting links. Tom Thomson. (Wiki) Death on a Painted Lake: the Tom Thomson tragedy. (canadianmysteries.ca) A break in the mysterious case of Tom Thomson, Canada's Van Gogh. (globeandmail.com) The Globe and Mail article is a good starting point, first published in 2012 and updated in 2012. Tom Thomson died 96 years ago today.
