Bought a used copy of The Insiders, a 1987 book by John Sawatsky, from a library bookstore. All about lobbyings of the day and prior. Read the credits:

It is fitting that my first book on politics is dedicated to Marjorie Nichols, my Ottawa Bureau Chief at the Vancouver Sun when I arrived on Parliament Hill in 1975; she taught me how to cover politics in the capital.

Had written about her. Dead in 1991 at 48, four years after this book was published.

Some sense of a larger legacy.
